Coffee is one of the most popular drinks in the world. And while many people enjoy the jolt of energy that it provides, many are wondering if coffee is helpful (or harmful) for weight loss. Unfortunately, there is no exact answer – the effects of coffee on weight management are mixed. The benefits of coffee include improved metabolism and appetite control, which could help in weight loss.
However, coffee contains caffeine which can lead to more sugar cravings and poor sleep in some people – both factors can negatively impact weight. Moreover, numerous coffee drinks contain excessive calories and added sugar.
In this article, we take a closer look at how coffee affects your weight.
Some studies suggest that coffee may be beneficial for weight loss.
So, the burning question: Does coffee make you fat?
While some studies suggest that coffee may aid weight loss, it may also negatively affect weight in various ways.
Add sugar into that and you’ll need to add 63 kJ/15 cals and 4g carbs per teaspoon. It might not sound like a lot on its own, but when you add up the daily tally – and maybe you’re drinking more than one – then it soon adds up. Research shows that intake of sugary beverages, such as sweetened coffee drinks, is associated with weight gain and a higher risk of obesity.
There are numerous ways to enjoy your daily cup of coffee without gaining weight. For one, you can take plain black coffee – without adding milk, sugar, or any other ingredients. Don’t like the taste of plain black coffee? If you’d like to add some sugar to your drink, just remember this important tip – avoid adding excess sugar to your coffee.
Sugar is already present in many flavored creamers and pre-prepared lattes – and many people add liquid sweeteners or table sugar directly to their coffee. Here are some tips to reduce sugar intake while still adding flavor to your cup of joe:
If you enjoy Bulletproof coffee, choose healthy fats (i.e. coconut oil or grass-fed butter) – and use small amounts. Moreover, be mindful of your daily calorie intake to make sure that you’re not over-consuming calories.
Is coffee helpful (or harmful) for weight loss? Unfortunately, there is no exact answer – the effects of coffee on weight management are mixed. Coffee alone doesn’t cause weight gain; in fact, it may promote weight loss by boosting your metabolism and reducing your appetite. However, it can negatively impact your sleeping patterns, which may promote weight gain.
Moreover, drinking coffee can alter your perceived sense of sweetness, which may result in craving sugary foods – the daily addition of a high-sugar snack with your coffee may lead to eventual weight gain. Also, many coffee drinks are loaded with sugar and calories which could be increasing your waistline.But while drinking coffee may cause you to gain some weight, it doesn’t mean that you have to cut it out of your diet completely.
To minimize your risk of gaining weight, try drinking plain black coffee – or cut out added high-calorie and sugar additives. Don’t like the taste of black coffee? To add some flavor to your coffee, you can use healthier alternatives like unsweetened coconut milk or almond milk, cinnamon, vanilla extract, or a no-calorie sweetener like stevia. This way, you can enjoy your daily cup of coffee without worrying about gaining weight.
