Fitness Tip of the Day: Beware of Coffee Calories

Be aware of the extra calories that come from add-ins like sugar and creamers

Coffee is great, I personally have a cup (or three) to get my caffeine in the morning. The problem with drinking too much coffee occurs when people add hundreds of calories to their coffee with sugar and creamer!

Creamers can especially be hard on the waistline because for their tiny size they pack a punch in terms of calories. By loading up your coffee from black to almost white you are just consuming empty calories (although they may taste great). If you are counting your calories or watching your weight, make sure to keep an eye on the things you put in your coffee; stick to black coffee if you can!
