A friend told me that drinking coffee would hinder my weight loss. Is this true?
I drink coffee, love it, and have lost 150 pounds and kept it off for over 15 years. I find it sometimes actually curbs my appetite, but everyone’s different. I am not a doctor or expert, but I have not read any study that says coffee will hinder weight loss, provided you don't load yours up with cream and sugar. Several studies have shown that a moderate amount, two cups a day or so, are not harmful. But more than that might cause problems, especially if you have hypertension (high blood pressure). As always, ask your doctor.
