Coffee without assorted additives is a perfectly healthy drink, yet it becomes a serious calorie nightmare when those additives are used. Learn about four more ways coffee habits injure weight loss efforts with Phentermine 37.5mg.
Using a Sweetened Nut Milk
Almond milk or another nut-based milk can seem like the healthier choice, but unfortunately it isn’t if the drink is sweetened.
“The problem with ordering an almond milk latte or oat milk cappuccino at your local café is that baristas usually use the flavored versions that contain added sugars,” says Ilyse Schapiro MS, RD, CDN. “High consumption of added sugars is associated with weight gain and increased risk for the development of Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.”
Ordering Cold Cream or Frappuccinos
Frappuccinos and coffee drinks with cold cream are in no way weight loss-friendly.
“The Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew may get you in the [holiday] spirit, but the creamy, cold foam is loaded with excess calories, sugar, and artificial ingredients,” says Schapiro.
Purchasing Bottled Coffee
Buying bottled coffee can seem like the time and money-saving option, but doing so will not help you lose weight and keep it off. Those bottles come loaded with sugar.
“Take the Original Iced Coffee from Dunkin’, for example. Just one bottle contains 260 calories and 29 grams of added sugars, making this one of the worst beverages to jumpstart your morning with,” says Schapiro.
Opting For Whipped Coffee
Whipped coffee is extremely trendy, but like many other food trends it is detrimental to lasting weight loss.
“This popular concoction contains instant coffee, sugar, and boiling water poured over iced full-fat milk, and although this coffee may taste great and make for an Insta-worthy picture, the excess calories, fat, and sugars in this beverage should be something to consider if your whipping this up regularly,” says Schapiro.
