So what is a coffee lover to do to feed the need without the extra baggage? The most obvious solution is to cut out the additives. Coffee itself is fat free and has no calories. The premise of the coffee diet is that coffee lovers will like their coffee ‘straight’ and the caffeine in the coffee acts as an appetite suppressant. Just read the ingredients on any box of diet pills and you are likely to find caffeine as one of the main ingredients.
There are risks to drinking too much coffee, just like there are risks to doing anything to excess. Too much caffeine has been shown to raise blood pressure and maybe even blood sugar levels. These are things to monitor closely if you go on the coffee diet.
One added benefit of the coffee diet is its simplicity. You just drink five cups of coffee at regular intervals during the day. Be sure to drink lots of water to avoid dehydration and brush your teeth regularly to avoid nasty stains.
