Do the math:
I usually have 3 cups of coffee each morning with 1 teaspoon of sugar in each cup.
3 teaspoons of sugar is 4.2 grams/teaspoon or 12.6 grams total
365 days x 12.6 grams = 4599 grams for the year
3.9 calories per gram of sugar
4599 x 3.9 = 17, 936 calories per year from sugar in my coffee
17,936/3500 = 5.12 pounds
17,936 calories per year.....drinking my coffee with just the usual milk makes an impact.
Small changes do add up!
I haven't had sugar in my coffee for about a month now. I think it really helps reduce my afternoon sugar cravings. Give it a try!
