Dear Al
Caffeine is a stimulant so you may find that after drinking a cup of strong black coffee that your basic metabolic rate is slightly higher which would use up some extra kJs, but not enough to cause significant weightloss. Rather make sure that your total energy intake if lower and that your total energy output is higher if you want to lose weight.
