Calories in Coffee

In this era of total dieting and constant calculation of how much we put on or lose weight, have you ever considered the amount of calories we are consuming with our coffee daily? Don't forget that a liquid could also be a serious obstacle when we are trying to lose weight, especially if it is a latte with various caramel and chocolate toppings...

But don't panic beforehand and quit drinking coffee, not all varieties are so dangerous for our tummies? For example, a pure black coffee (no sugar allowed!) - if only you are eager to drink a bitter coffee every morning - will add from 2 to 5 calories to your daily diet. The number is so small that you don't even have to worry about it.

However, be careful when ordering your cup of coffee at such places as Starbucks, Dunkin' Donuts or Gloria Jeans: a latte could look harmless, at first glance, but may contain more calories than you would expect.

Here is the list of calories contained in some of the most popular drinks:
