Wellness with Waldy 1/30

Wellness with Waldy is a segment on my weekly radio show, Wednesdays 11 am-1 pm. The content on this blog does not reflect the views or opinions of Rowan University or Rowan Radio 89.7 WGLS-FM.  

In case you missed this week’s Wellness with Waldy segment, I talked about coffee and how it secretly burns calories. 

It is unsure why coffee burns calories, but Alexandria, Virginia nutritionist Cheryl Harris explains that it has to do with the caffeine in coffee.  The caffeine speeds up your heart rate, which in turn, speeds up your metabolism.  This extra metabolic kick is what burns the calories.

Added Wellness bonus! According to a study from Arizona State University, if you cut up your food into tiny pieces, you will burn 40% more calories.  The smaller pieces of food makes it look like there is more on your plate, tricking your brain so that you don’t go back for seconds.

Go on and enjoy your daily latte with whipped cream because while you enjoy your delicious drink, you won’t regret getting the whipped cream.
