So, you are running late for work and you manage to have a small cappuccino before your first morning meeting. Fast forward to lunch, your stomach is growling and you realize that you skipped breakfast. Drinking coffee has a lot of health benefits, but it can suppress your appetite and some people use it as a meal replacement.
Here at Viral Inspiral, we did some research on how to make your cup of coffee healthier without losing your appetite and screwing up your metabolism.
1. Avoid artificial sweeteners and refined sugar.
This might seem a little bit obvious but coffee is healthy by itself. You actually turn it into something harmful for your body by loading it with sugar. Many popular versions of coffee are filled with artificial sweeteners or refined sugar. For example, a medium Iced Caramel Macchiato has 34 grams of sugar and a White Chocolate Mocha has 49 grams of sugar.
Due to the high amount of fructose in sugar, it can cause all sorts of serious diseases like obesity and diabetes. If you cannot tolerate the taste of coffee without sugar you can use a natural sweetener like stevia.
