How exactly does caffeine alone make you burn fat?
Frees up fatty acids to be metabolized. Gives you more energy and decreases fatigue, thereby allowing you to workout harder/longer. Maybe a slight thermogenic effect as well.
There used to be a good article on this site regarding caffiene, but I think it was taken down after some of the findings may have been contradicted by another study. I don't know, haha.
