Western society today is obsessed with body image. That’s why the diet industry is a multi-billion dollar industry in the United States alone. There are some rather bizarre diets that exist simply to lure you in, play on your emotions, take your money, and often leave you less healthy than you were when you began the diet. Is the coffee diet one of these diets?
For people who love coffee, yet feel like they need to regulate their diets, discouragement is often encountered when the dieter realizes that the latest fad diet forbids the consumption of coffee. This discouragement can lead to the failure of the diet because the dieter gives up, thinking the demands of the diet are too hard.
The Coffee Diet: Created for the Coffee Lover
A solution to the coffee dilemma must start with debunking a few myths about the harmful effect of coffee on the human body. Coffee itself is relatively harmless in moderate amounts. Where we get into trouble is when we start adding things to our coffee to make it “”taste better””. If something needs to have its flavor altered so severely to make it taste better why would anyone drink it to begin with? What many people call coffee has additives such as various dairy products, sweeteners, and flavorings to the point that there is barely a hint of coffee flavor present.
The problem with these delicious additives is that they add significant calories and fat to your coffee beverage. For instance a standard 16 ounce flavored coffee drink can have 400 calories and over 20 grams of fat, comparable to a McDonalds Quarter Pounder – ouch!
