...I am drinking my coffee black. The more I research the downfalls of adding cream, or even skim milk, and sugar to coffee, the more I find the real benefit comes from drinking black coffee. The metabolism boost you get from coffee is often cancelled out by adding extra calories and fat to the drink. Additionally, the antioxidants that exist in coffee could be cancelled out by the added sugar. If you have to add anything, try to add only milk, not sugar. The added sugar and the non-dairy creamers seem to have the most negative effect on the metabolism and antioxidant effect coffee can provide.
For me, I'm changing my game today. If I drink coffee, I drink it black! As a fit model, my measurements are necessary to maintain, and as a health professional, I want to be healthy. With this one change only, I want to see what happens. So....I will report back to you in 2 weeks from today. Healthy choices...
