Carbohydrates in Coffee – there are none. And only 9 calories in each cup.

Carbohydrates in coffee.

That’s right, there are no carbohydrates in coffee, and so few calories you could burn them off with a walk around the block.

Of course, these figures are for a cup of fresh-brewed coffee, from beans, and without cream or sugar. The way you like to fix your coffee with cream and sugar will certainly have an impact on the final amount of carbohydrates and calories you ingest.

But compared with most beverages around the house, coffee is very light on the bad stuff, and bursting with good stuff.

Coffee is one of the nutritional “good guys”...

* Coffee contains no cholesterol and no saturated fat

* Coffee is low in sodium

* Coffee beans contain no sugar

* Coffee is high in magnesium, pantothenic acid, potassium and riboflavin...all of them good for you.

Compare that with a few cans of soda, and you‘ll see that coffee gives you all the kick, without the drawbacks.

Coffee is a natural stimulant too...

We all know how caffeine gives us a kick when we drink coffee. But you may not know that caffeine is also the principle active ingredient in a lot of weight-loss supplements.

Can coffee really help you lose weight? In spite of its widespread use, there is considerable debate about whether caffeine really does help you lose weight.

So let’s split the difference, and relax in the knowledge that coffee won’t make you fat. As for carbohydrates in coffee, that’s one thing you don’t have to worry about at all.
