Dear Coffee Drinker
You are certainly NOT a coffee addict if you only have one cup a day. I am not sure where this information about coffee interfering with weightloss comes from because most over-the-counter slimming pills contain caffeine which increases metabolism slightly. The 2 teaspoons of sugar you have with the one cup of coffee a day provide less than 160 kJ which represents 2,5% of your energy intake when you are slimming, so this is not going to be too excessive. By all means cut out the coffee creamer which contains saturated fat and rather have low-fat or fat-free milk instead.
If you are still determined to stop having your one cup of coffee a day then switch to decaffeinated coffee to wean yourself of the craving for caffeine.
I would, however, stick to having one cup of coffee with the 2 t of sugar once a day particularly if this help you stick to your diet for the rest of the day.
