Do you ever drive past a cafe and see a string of people in a queue lining up for their coffee hit? It’s crazy, coffee has definitely become a daily necessity for millions of Australians – in fact, coffee is a national billion dollar industry. However, debate has always surrounding coffee and if it is actually good or bad for you. The good news is that recently a Doctor in the USA has declared that a daily cup of coffee can actually help with weight loss (see more here: http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/food/drink/doctor-in-the-us-claims-drinking-coffee-is-the-key-to-losing-weight/news-story/22302c538737c97afdde052e819e563d)
Doctor Arnot has declared that coffee can help with weight loss by increasing metabolism, minimizing the effects of fatty foods on the digestive system and even cause a regular drinker to burn more calories than someone who abstains. I think Dr Anot is my new hero (ha ha).
While this may seem like great news for those of your watching your weight, you do have to still be sensible about your coffee consumption. For example, if you order a large Cafe Latte from the Coffee Club, you will be consuming around 150 calories (and if you add sugar, even more)! If you were having 2-3 of these every day, the extra calories would definitely negate the potential benefit to your weight loss efforts.
A short / long black would be your best bet to get a good shot of caffeine without the calories – that’s right, these are calorie-free drinks. But if you can’t tolerate black coffee, just ask for a small jug of warm skinny milk on the side and add your own milk so the bitterness disappears.
Beware: while a little caffeine may be beneficial to your health, too much can be detrimental! More than two cups a day can cause dehydration, anxiety, rapid heart rate, insomnia and definitely add an extra toxic load to the liver. Like all things, coffee is fine in moderation and only becomes a problem when you have too much!
