Research shows that drinking caffeine before a sweat session can improve your athletic performance during intense exercise for up to 20 minutes. That’s not all! Another study showed that caffeine can boost your endurance during exercise, allowing you to work longer before exhaustion shows up. (1,2,3)
Add intermittent fasting to that equation, and you’ll be a fat-burning machine. Your sympathetic nervous system controls your body’s natural fat-burning processes, and it’s turned on by a lack of food and with exercise.
This increases the impact of cellular factors and catalysts, which cause your body to break down glycogen and fat for energy. Hello, fat burning! And don’t worry, straight black coffee without any calories added can actually HELP your fast, not break it.

But you can’t just sip on a cup mindlessly -- timing is critical. Here is how Co founder Frankie did his Intermittent Fasting:
Used the 8-Hour Window
Eat for an 8-hour period of day, followed by a 16-hour overnight fast. This type of overnight fasting helps control blood sugar and clean out any garbage in the cells. But, start gradually, beginning within a 14-hour window (for example, 7 am – 9 pm), then adjust to a 12-hour window (8 am – 8 pm), then a 10 hour window (9 am – 7 pm), and finally an 8-hour window (10 am – 6 pm).
-Drink Apple Cider vinegar shot(1 tbsp) mix with 2oz of water. Optional but great boosters to add to this shot are sprinkles of cinnamon, turmeric and ginger.
-Drink Kimera Koffee straight black.
-Exercise 15-30 min after.
Make healthy choices. Frankie tried to eat as clean as possible and consumed less than 150 grams of carbs per day. Instead he focused on lean proteins, veggies and healthy fats.
2-4 hrs later have a lean protein snack like: Greek yogurt, protein shake, protein bar, veggie chips, rice cakes and almond butter, edamame, broccoli and hummus or low carb dip, dried nuts, apples or berries etc.
Low carb, lean protein, healthy fats, Veggies and plenty of water.
For best results, be sure to include a daily dose of fish oil and a multivitamin paired with healthy diet
