How many calories in a Cup of Coffee?

How many calories in a Cup of Coffee?

Coffee is consumed in great proportions all over the world, mostly because most people need a little boost of caffeine in the morning. Or simply you could have a taste for it (which, by the way, is secretly caffeine, but hey, nobody’s judging).

Coffee is known to provide a boost of energy. Besides plain coffee contains hardly any calories. In fact, coffee is known to be an effective beverage for weight loss. Did you know that?

It’s true. Most weight-loss diets recommend taking pure coffee.

However, when we talk about calorie intake and weight loss, the coffee we mean is water and beans. The more flavor you add to it, the more calories you intake.

So, you have to compromise on either of the things, taste or calories. Which is your pick?

Calories in your cup of coffee:

Since there are so many types of coffees out there, their ingredients determine the calories in them. Depending on how you like your coffee, and how much you drink per day, the calorie consumption varies.

Adding even a little amount of dairy product or sugar can greatly affect calorie intake.

If you are just consuming a plain cup of brewed coffee, you are taking under 5 calories. If you are adding extras as dressings, you are adding calories. Let’s see how much they can be:

  • 1 teaspoon of sugar (4 grams) contains 16 calories.
  • 2 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream (1 ounce/ 30 milli-liters) contain 101 calories
  • 2 tablespoons of fat-free milk (1 ounce/ 30 milli-liters) contain 10 calories
  • 2 tablespoons of Half-and-half (1 ounce/30 milli-liters) contain 37 calories

Calories in different types of coffee drinks:

How you like your coffee is your own choice. However, how your favorite coffee can affect you is a totally different question. Here is the calorie count in the most popular coffee drinks:

In fact, decaffeinated coffee has proven to be effective in weight loss and cutting off fat, plus in the promotion of blood flow.

 

Depending on why you’re drinking your coffee, you should observe the calorie intake. Moreover, casually drinking flavored coffee is fine, but if you make a habit out of it, you are consuming a lot of calories.

 

Studies indicate that overconsumption of sugar can lead to negative effects on your health. Sweetened foods are a leading source of obesity. Therefore, it is good to be aware of your calorie intake, and calories are present in liquid forms.
