  1. It could definitely contribute to weight gain and just because soda has more doesn’t mean this is ok. Soda is a travesty.
    The real problem with what you’e doing is that caffeine prompts your body to release energy ( fat and carbs) into your bloodstream to be used. Basically its talking to your energy systems and saying, something’s up, we need energy so it floods your bloodstream. Now, while its doing that, you’re cramming straight sugar in through your belly and pushing it up e…

  2. Sugar in any form makes you gain weight weather in alcohol, juices or coffee.
    drinking one or two cups of coffee is fine but more than that is not helpful. try not to exceed the limit 🙂

  3. Most people like their coffee with some sugar and milk, I myself am not a fan of black coffee. I enjoy my coffee with some milk and sugar.
    Yes , you will gain weight if you add sugar in your coffee, but it depends on how many cups of coffee you drink per day.
    It’s ok to add sugar in your coffee, if you are not drinking more than 2–3 cups of coffee a day but if you drink more than 3 cups a day, you are adding hundreds of extra calories to your daily diet and most likely will gain some unhealthy weight.
    Let’s say, you drink 1–3 cups of coffee per day , 1 teaspoon of sugar has 15 calories , now it depends on how many teaspoons you like in a cup of coffee.
    Average is 1–2 teaspoons (some people like their coffee more sweet and can use up to 5–6 teaspoons of sugar ) , which is 45 calories in a cup of coffee and 135 calories a day from 3 cups of coffee.
    So you can count how many calories you are taking in every day from your coffee intake.
    1 teaspoon = 15 calories
    1 cup of coffee = 2–3 teaspoons of sugar = 30–45 calories
    Hope it helps
    Cheers 🙂

  4. Let’s assume your weight is very stable. I.e., you have neither gained nor lost weight for the past year or two.
    Let’s also assume that you start drinking two cups of coffee per day, with two teaspoons of sugar per cup and that you change nothing else. I.e., the rest of your diet stays exactly the same, and there is no change in your activity levels. The next two years are going to be exactly the same as the previous two years, with the only exception being those two cups of coffee with two teaspoons of sugar per cup.
    You are now consuming 64 more calories per day than before. Remember, your weight was stable, and you’ve changed nothing else, so you are now in a calorie surplus of 64. You can expect to gain one pound every 55 days, which will work out to about 13 pounds over two years. Over ten years, you would gain 65 pounds.
    I’ve gone through this exercise for two reasons:
    To point out how easy it is to gain weight slowly over many years, with just a small calorie surplus between 50 and 100 calories per day. This, in fact, is how a lot of people become obese.
    To indirectly point out the absurdity of pinning the blame on 64 calories from two small cups of coffee with a little bit sugar, because it’s a small percentage of your daily calorie consumption. Also, the assumption that you change nothing else will never really be true. It’s a very different story for the 300+ calorie drinks at Starbucks and similar shops, though, or even 140 calorie soft drinks. Skipping or adding two of those per day obviously has a much bigger effect.

  5. I assume that like most normal folks, you put in one teaspoon sugar ( or packet):
    An extra few teaspoons of sugar will do no harm, especially if your coffee servings are early morning, when your metabolism is set on it’s highest. Unless you’re diabetic, I wouldn’t worry about it. BUT I find a half teaspoon of Low Glycemic agave( at ALDI’S) works fine for me, doesn’t change distort the coffee flavor.

  6. Consuming to much energy will cause you to increase your fat stores.
    Sugar in coffee is energy and can contribute to you eating too much of said energy.

  7. Yes, when you add milk and sugar in coffee, there is 100% possibility to gain weight but not that much if you are drinking once or twice in a day with the regular work out. Black coffee has low calories.
    If you want to lose weight then you should avoid sugar.

  8. No , sugar does not make you gain weight. A caloric surplus will cause weight gain.
    In reply to the added comment, 7 sugar packets would contain around 14–28g of added sugar. According to USDA guidelines, it is recommended to limit added sugars to not more than 10% of total calories. Although it may not cause weight gain, I would encourage to either limit sugar packets or swap some or all with a 0 calorie sweetener like Splenda.

  9. Coffee no. Sugar may be, depending on how much you add to your diet. 7 packets of sugar will do nothing for your teeth either except add to your dentist’s earnings!
    Given you have only just started drinking coffee and clearly you have a concern about gaining weight, I suggest you reduce or eliminate completely the added sugar in your coffee. It is unnecessary and don’t forget this is in addition to your normal diet. Sugar has no nutritional value other than adding calories.

  12. It depends on how much sugar we’re talking about and how many coffees you drink per day. A teaspoon is ok (16 kcal) but if you drink 4–5 coffees it quickly adds up .I would suggest to use stevia as it is a healthier option with almost 0 calories and you really can’t feel the difference between stevia & sugar.
    Hope it helps you!

  13. Thats is a lot of sugar to put in a black coffee..a little too sweet for me.
    However, its not that much when compared to other beverages. Most sodas have 30-40 grams of sugar. One sugar packet is 4 grams, so 7 of them is 28 grams of sugar in your coffee.
    Also a sugar packet is only 15 calories. So youre only adding 105 calories to your daily intake.
    That is not going to cause you to gain any weight if youre only having one a day.
    Enjoy!

  14. It depends,
    1 teaspoon of sugar has abuot 15 calories, if you like in your coffee 2–3 teaspoons of sugar its 30–45 calories.
    And if you are drinking more then one cup a day it adds up,
    i recommend to you to move to green tea, more healthier and less calories.
    but if you really can’t without your coffee theres good alternatives to the regular sugar that have less calories, like brown sugar, honey and sativia.

  15. Drinking a cup of coffee with seven packets of sugar certainly increases the likelihood that you will gain weight. I stop short of guaranteeing you will gain weight because you haven’t given enough information.
    Simple sugars and carbohydrates have been demonized by nutritionists and other health care professionals as likely culprits in our battles against heart disease, weakened immune systems, diabetes, and so on, and so on.
    You may read up on the research yourself, and draw your own conclusions. My take-away is that you would be better off adding some cream (the real stuff) or whole milk to your coffee than sugar or any sweetener.

  17. It can if you 8+ ts add to many . Each teaspoon/ 4grams has 16 calories. If you are not drinking to many cups you should not have any problems with weight gain. try to keep your sugar intake to less than 6 tsp a day if you a woman/ 8 for a man. Carbohydrates and other foods have all the natural sugar you body needs trough out the day. Reduce any products with to many added ingredients including other hidden sugars Hidden in Plain Sight

  19. A spoonful of sugar contains 16 calories, you’ll burn these by just walking from the kitchen to the bathroom.
    Thus, unless you put some 100 teaspoons of sugar into your coffee or are extremely lazy it won’t make a noticeable difference.

  20. Sugar has 16 calories a teaspoon. If you are only have 1 or 2 cups, that 16 calories can fit into just about any diet (watch it if you are diabetic).
    I’d rather have a few calories of “real” sugar than no calories of artificial sugars. Stevia is a plant-sourced sweetener you can try, but read the label because sometimes it has corn syrup or artificial sweeteners mixed in.

  21. In order to gain weight, you need to be consuming more calories than you’re burning on average. Sugar contains calories. So if you have too much in a way tha makes you eat more than you’re burning – then yes. And if that’s not the case – then no.
