Energy Content of Coffees
If you want to lose body fat, unsweetened coffee is a reasonable food option for a healthy weight loss diet, as it has a low calorie-content provided no sugar is added. In addition to energy content, dietary nutrition is also important, as a nutritious diet helps the body to burn calories faster and maintains a healthy metabolic rate. So as well as calorie-counting, check food labels for nutritional value. Nutritional and energy values provided on most of the above food pages include: vitamins, minerals, folate and dietary fiber, as well as protein and carbs. Understanding diet nutrition makes calorie control and weight management easier and helps you to follow a healthy eating plan. See also Nutrition in Coffee
How To Lower Calorie Intake
If you want to save calories for weight loss purposes, a good start is to reduce the amount of sugar you add to your coffee, or use a sweetener like Splenda. Of course any calorie-burning workout helps to increase your calorie deficit and thus allows you to add more sugar to your coffee with less chance of weight problems.
