How do you take your Coffee?

I have written about coffee before, but it was a little more centered to caffeine. This time I want to talk about calories and fat in coffee’s. I have come across clients in the past who were unwilling to give up the cream in their coffee. Want to know the difference it makes?

Lets say you drank 1 DD coffee a day 5 days a week

Calories :230
Fat: 12 grams
Protein: 2 grams
Carbs: 26 grams
Sugar: 26 grams

so 4600 calories a month

3500 calories is a pound. So having a DD will cause a weight gain of 1.5 pounds a month or 55200 calories a year which is 15.7 pounds of fat.

 If you got a medium with 2 Milk and 1 sugar

Calories :85
Fat: 2 grams
Protein: 2 grams
Carbs: 15 grams
Sugar: 15 grams
(5.7 pounds a year)
 

Switching from cream to milk and reducing 1 sugar saves you 10.1 pounds over the year!!!

 Make the switch!!!

  1. Thankfully I switched from a DD with cream, to 2 milk and 1 sugar (or sweetner) a few years ago! Now I cannot stand the taste of cream in coffee … Yuck !
