You can't drink coffee - Diet myths disproved - Women's Health & Fitness

3. You can’t drink coffee
I often read in magazines that people trying to lose weight should cut out coffee. I didn’t really understand why, but what I figured out over time is that we don’t need to cut out coffee; it’s the cream and sugar that we add to it that needs to be cut out. I need my one to two cups of coffee every day. I used to drink my coffee with cream and sugar and eventually switched to skim milk and sweeteners, but now I am proud to say that I have trained myself to drink my coffee black. I have adapted to the taste and in fact I prefer it this way now. I religiously drink one cup of coffee or espresso before I hit the gym every morning.
