If you only have one teaspoon of sugar (which provides 81 kJ) in your coffee and you drink only 2-3 cups a day (243 kJ in 3 t of sugar), then this would only represent 3.9% of your daily energy intake if you are an adult woman trying to lose weight, or 2,9% of your energy intake if you are not trying to lose weight. Artificial sweeteners, such as aspartame, have been declared 'safe for human consumption' by all the major nutrition bodies around the world, so moderate intake should not be a problem. But you will have to decide what you prefer to use.
