How many calories
are in coffee?
The amount of calories in coffee will vary greatly depending on what you put into the drink itself. Drinking black coffee with no additives is very low in calories, while adding sugar, milk and cream will quickly add large amounts of calories.
Some recent studies have shown coffee to be a relatively healthy drink compared to other caffeinated beverages like soda. Remember, the healthy aspects of coffee are quickly overshadowed once additives like sugar and cream are introduced.
