As I sit here at the Prevention Pulse offices, I am surrounded by staffers who are drinking cups of coffee.
Heck, even I am too.
Coffee has a number of health benefits, ranging from the caffeine in it promoting brain health to the antioxidants in every cup that can help prevent disease.
However some coffee beverages get very unhealthy when you start adding whole milk and flavored syrups.
One unsweetened 16 oz latte contains up to 300 calories and 15 grams of fat when made with whole milk.
Just imagine how much worse it would be if you added artificial sweeteners.
Make the healthier choice: Stick with black coffee. A typical cup 12 oz cup contains only 5 calories and is completely sugar free.
If you absolutely need a little extra sweetness, one teaspoon of sugar and a little skim milk will only set you back about 30 more calories.source by http://preventionpulse.com/
