How Many Calories Are in Coffee?
You can’t buy happiness but you can buy coffee…and that’s pretty close.
There is nothing quite as nice as a good cup of coffee in the morning. As a matter of fact, I sometimes find that I enjoy the first cup so much that I end up having a second top right after it. If you’re trying to lose weight and you are curious about the calories that are contained in coffee, I have some excellent news for you. Black coffee can be included as part of your breakfast every single day and you’re not going to add any calories at all into the mix. That is, of course, as long as you drink it properly.
The real problem with drinking coffee is the fact that many of us don’t simply drink it black. It is really going to be a matter of personal taste, and some of us like to add a little bit of sweetener or perhaps some cream into the coffee in order to make it a little bit more palatable.
If you are unable to drink black coffee on its own, you really need to consider the calories that you are adding to it whenever you sweeten it up in this way. A reasonable spoonful of sugar is going to have approximately 20 calories which can really add up.
Another thing that you need to think about is the fact that there are some coffee drinks that are out there, especially those that you get at Starbucks that may look innocent but they are completely loaded with calories.
If you regularly get these kind of drinks, take a few minutes to look up the number of calories that are included in your favorites. It might come as a surprise to you that you are including hundreds of calories in a single drink, something that could spell disaster for your diet.
I know what you’re probably thinking, what if I simply use a sugar substitute, which wouldn’t have any calories at all? I have to tell you, you should be avoiding the sugar substitutes like they were the plague.
Although they do not have any calories, they can contribute to weight gain and there are some studies that will back that up. Most of all, they are poison to the human body. You would be much better off to add a little bit of sugar into your coffee than to try to save a few calories by adding one of these artificial sweeteners.
The bottom line is, coffee can be a part of your diet and it does not need add any calories into your diet if you drink it black. If you decide that you must add something into it, make sure that you count those calories in your overall plan.
