  1. While black coffee alone may not contain any calories it is worth considering the other impacts of caffeine. For example it is highly addictive which is why it is added to most soft drinks which means you are likely to drink a lot of it and with it other ingredients such as sugar, milk etc. So these additional ingredients can cause excess energy which results in weight gain. Beyond this though it has a huge impact on sleeping patterns which will result in poor dietary choices the following day and it increases cortisol (a stress hormone) which will cause your body to store fat. As well as this your liver is largely responsible for breaking down fats when you are in calorie deficit and it is less capable of doing it’s job well when it is focused on breaking down caffeine as its first priority. In short, small quantities of black coffee may be beneficial as they may increase metabolic rate but ultimately caffeines addictive properties will mean most individuals will likely maintain or gain weight drinking it.

  2. Coffee alone does not cause weight gain — and may, in fact, promote weight loss by boosting metabolism and aiding appetite control. However, it can negatively affect sleep, which may promote weight gain. Additionally, many coffee drinks and popular coffee pairings are high in calories and added sugar. To drink coffee for weight loss, don’t add sugar and try not to have more than four cups per day, or in the several hours leading up to bedtime.

  3. Coffee never increases fat. On the contrary, it boosts your metabolism which helps in loosing fat when combined with a balanced diet and exercise routine. But we are talking about pure coffee. Not that coffee which is served with milk, cream and lots of sugar.
    So having a cup of black coffee with little or no sugar will never make you fat.

  4. I agree with Rahul Dobriyal. There is nothing like black coffee but don’t make it strong or bitter tasting by adding lots of coffee powder. Make it light… you will enjoy each cup you drink.
    NO sugar, NO milk, if you don’t want the fat to increase.

  5. If it’s black, then no, you won’t get fat by it.
    A cup of black coffee is measured somewhere around 2 to 3 calories.
    But people usually toss in cream, milk and even sugar in it which will up the calories by a fair amount.

  6. Too much coffee can lead to weight gain and other health problems, even if drinkers stick to decaffeinated, according to research. Experts warned that drinking five or more cups a day increased the amount of fat stored in the abdomen .

  7. Yes, if you drink coffee with sugar at 3–4 times a day or more. Particularly if you drink Latte, it sure can help gain weight due to sheer size of a latte.

  8. Quite the opposite. Coffee stimulates metabolically active brown fat and helps with weight loss, unless you load it with sugar.
    By the way, you’ll burn more calories if you spell out the word “you.”

  9. Not if you have it black. It actually helps with weight loss that way! Adding loads of creamer and sugar will up the calories though, so don’t be too generous with the extras.

  10. Coffee itself will not at all make you fat, however that side muffin or fat slice of pie, a lot of sugar, sedentarism and sleep deprivation certainly will!
    Good tasting!

  11. No. The calorie content of coffee is virtually nil. Adding milk and sugar will make a small difference, but on its own, that will not be enough to make you fat. In fact, if that’s all you consumed you would end up dead,
    A cup of coffee almost always contains 2 teaspoons of sugar, or less. A can of Coke or other soft drink contains far more than that. Who would have thought coffee with milk and sugar is almost a diet drink.

  12. Coffee doesnt make you fat, if you have an extra sweet one you will get a few extra carbs and some from milk too. have a extra sweet coffee with milk every hour, yes it can make you fat.

  13. Black coffee contains no energy.
    If you add cream or sugar to it you’re adding some energy, but even then it’s not much, 20 calories at the most.
    Caffeine also acts as a hold stimulant increasing your resting metabolism slightly for a little while.
    If you’re getting fat, chances are it’s not the coffee.
    When you add on weight it’s because you’re eating too much overall, it’s never just one thing.

  14. No, the coffee itself doesn’t make anyone fat. When I say this, I am referring to black coffee with no sugar added.
    However, coffee is very often served full of sweeteners, and also full of fatty additives such as sugar, corn syrup or corn syrup solids, Italian flavored syrup, coffee-mate, cream, non dairy creamer, half & half, whipped cream, whole milk, artificial nondairy whipped cream, etc.
    It is the above additives in coffee which can make us fat, particularly if the coffee additives are consumed on a daily basis, or several times per day.
    If you only consume non black coffee once per week, then the additives you put in the coffee (or that the coffee shop puts in the coffee) will probably not be consumed often enough to make you fat.

  15. The debate surrounding coffee and weight has been a long and heated one. Some say that coffee makes you fat, while others claim that it’s a weight-loss miracle drink. So, what’s the verdict?
    Unfortunately, there isn’t a clear answer. Coffee itself doesn’t appear to have a major impact on weight, but the way it’s often consumed can lead to weight gain. For example, many people add sugar and cream to their coffee, which can add extra calories. Additionally, people often snack on foods like pastries or cookies when they drink coffee, which can also contribute to weight gain.
    So, if you’re trying to lose weight, you may want to cut back on your coffee intake or be mindful of what you consume with your coffee.
