Consuming an additional unsweetened coffee daily was linked to a decreased likelihood of weight gain over four years, as reported in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition on Oct. 1.
However, this advantage was negated if an individual mixed in a teaspoon of sugar to their drink. The inclusion of cream or non-dairy creamer showed no impact on weight, according to the study findings.
Scientists from the Department of Nutrition at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston, Massachusetts, gathered information from three long-term observational studies: the Nurses’ Health Study (1986-2010), the Nurses’ Health Study II (1991-2015), and the Health Professional Follow-up Study (1991-2014).
The study specifically examined the link between coffee drinking patterns and weight fluctuations over four-year periods.
Participants filled out surveys detailing their food and beverage intake.
The study examined the intake of both caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee and took into account if the drinks were made with sugar, sweeteners, or cream.
The results showed that an extra daily cup of unsweetened coffee was linked to a weight decrease of .12 kilograms or .26 pounds over four years.
Conversely, those who added a teaspoon of sugar to their daily intake saw an increase of .09 kilograms or .20 pounds during the same timeframe.
Notably, the link between coffee and sugar intake and weight variations was especially pronounced among younger individuals and those categorized as overweight or obese.
