The Benefits of Drinking Coffee without Sugar
A hot cup of coffee is how many people like to start the day. Some people swear by it and wouldn't think of beginning their day without a fresh cup. Others drink it by the pot. But is it safe? And will it help or hinder your weight loss efforts?
Research has been back and forth on whether a few cups of coffee a day is a healthy habit or not. The latest research shows that it is not only safe to consume several cups of coffee per day, but it can actually help you lose weight.
Don't add cream and sugar to your coffee. These only add extra calories and make you crave more sweets.
I've been doing it for years. I hardly ever put sugar in my coffee unless the brew is very bitter, like from a local coffeehouse. I don't know why the coffee I make at home is so much better than theirs that it doesn't even require one grain of sugar. I do put half and half in it, which contains some sugar itself, but I don't believe that counts. I think the sugar we're talking about here is "white devil" sugar. That stuff will kill ya.
