I don't see how coffee could hurt you... I try to get a good grade of, if I can... and I also add a half teaspoon of coconut oil to each cup of coffee... it is soothing to your stomach...cuts the acidity.

As long as you aren't talking about fancy coffees with heavy creams, whipped topping, etc, then you should be fine with your morning cup of coffee. Black coffee is calorie-free and studies have shown that moderate consumption has some health benefits. If you don't like it black, adding a little skim milk and a small amount of sweetener will only raise the calorie count a little.

Coffee is good, but you should drink coffee within a hour before you workout. Your coffee shouldn't have a whole lot of extra added calories from creams & sugar.

Why not a coffee before a workout? I thought it was a stimulant and a fat burner. I also drink my coffee black with a teaspoon of coconut oil. The diet I follow allows coffee in moderation.
