Going on a diet to lose a few pounds can be quite a difficult deal, especially when you have to give up on things you really enjoy doing. But striking the right balance between pleasure and indulgence is absolutely essential to replenish your senses and satiate your desires while staying within your diet plan!
Only two calories per cup!
Indulging in a cup of Coffee is certainly one of those irresistible pleasures. It helps you kick start your day and keeps you up and running until your next meal, especially when you’re dieting – all in less than 2 calories per cup of Soluble Coffee!
However, it’s what you add to your Soluble Coffee that could increase the fat and sugar content and add on the calories. Especially if you’re having one of those sophisticated drinks at a trendy coffee shop – typically loaded with sugar, syrup and fat to add up to a whopping 500 calories, a big influence on your daily calorie count! Simply adding cream to your coffee, for example, adds between 110-140 calories and 9-13 grams of fat.
Good to know:
A Coffee Drink that gives you an average of 100 calories or less per 1 cup can easily fit into your diet plan!
