Dear Nare
Having a cup of black coffee with artificial sweetener will not contribute any energy to your daily intake. Adding 30 ml of skim or whole milk would add 44 or 77 kJ per cup and adding 5 g (1t) of brown sugar would add 78 kJ. I would, therefore, recommend that you either use artificially sweetened black coffee or have artificially sweetened coffee with skim milk if you intend losing weight.
