Just cut on suggar.... try to notice when you drink coffee, if it estimulate others bad eating habits... But coffee itself.... I barely beleive it could get you fat (it's the opposite). Anyway... cut coffee for some days... then bring it back, cut it again, and try to find what chances on your food behave during these shifts..

If you just drink coffee (no sugar and no cream or even milk), I believe it actually can help you to lose weight. Sugar, cream, etc you put in the coffee the ones that make people fat, I think

I guess it does not directly make you fat unless it is oily and peppered with sugar. If you keep away from the above, then no, it won't make you fat. However, drinking coffee likely means you are working hard and if you are always at your desk, you are not going to move up and that means no exercising... so indirectly, coffee might just make you fat! :P

I don't think coffee makes us fat. I drink a lot of coffee everyday, nothing happen to me concern to my weight, still the same (fat:)! I heard that coffee can make me slimmer (not fatter), because coffee keeps us awake, so the more you drink the harder you can sleep. Of course if you can not sleep, you will lose weight!

black coffee won't make you fat...adding 14 sugars,full cream milk,flavoured syrup,whipped cream on top,and a plate of donuts in your other hand will make you fat :)

Hello dear marketing friend. I do not think that drinking coffee can make one gain weight. I think that it could be something else that you eat? Have you ever thought about the eating habit like sweet food, fast food, and lack of exercise? Anyway, I hope that you get the ideal weight as you wish. Take care.

I wish it would! I drink a lot of coffee in a whole day's time, but I never seem to gain weight. In fact, I put a lot of milk whenever I drink coffee. I am so addicted to coffee! I start my day with a cup of coffee and take several cups all day long every single day. Well, I keep hoping the milk would help me gain some weight, somehow.

Hi marketing07, I don’t think drinking coffee could put on our weight. I think the increase of weight is not mainly due to the coffee itself but the sugar and creamer added to it. Besides we do take some desserts when having coffee. These confectionaries contain very height calories which could cause the tremendous increase of weight. So I conclude that if taking pure coffee with nothing added to it could never make us fat lol...

hi there, i don`t think drinking coffee would make you fat, i have been drinking coffee for more than 10 years, and yeas i put a weight on and then i lost a weight but sure it wasn`t because of drinking coffee, it was because of my eating habits. I always drink coffee with a skimmed milk and try not to buy coffees from shops like cappuccinos and lattes and so, cause those might be fat. good luck

It depends on what sort of coffee you drink. If you go to a coffee shop and buy sweet milky drinks these are very high in calories and the sugar and fat content will make you fat. If you only drink unsweetened coffee with no milk that will not make you any fatter.

I don't think so. I don't often drink coffee, because I am afraid to be sleepless at night. I don't notice that it'll make me gain weight.

I dont think there are any inevitable affilication between coffee and fat. i also like drink coffee with much suger and cream,but i had never added any weight. I think maybe the dietetic habit make people fat or slim. Take myself for example, i like eating vegetables,fruit,and some candy, and it not difficult to keep me svelte.

It cant be the coffe you are drinking. i think it is the amount of sugar you put in it. Have you noticed if you liked your coffee sweet? Maybe you do, and so if you drink more coffee, you put in more sugar in your body. If it aint the sugar... check on your creamer... :)

I don't think coffee makes you fat I have drank coffee sense I was 16 years old and I beleive it makes you fat. there are lots of reasons why a person gets big, ask your doctor if possible they might have some ideas. nomatter if your big or small you are still loveable and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. good luck to you.

Coffee doesn't make you fat at all... ok it might be... but there are waaaay lot more factors on why you had been gaining weight rather than drinking coffee. It could be your increase carbs intake, perhaps lack of exercise maybe, or eating too much sweets etc.

YES coffee will make you fat if you put all the extra little goodies in it. But cffe itself. nah it helps you burn a lot more than you took in drinking it. But heres a secret...if you hate black coffee like myself add A SCOOP OF SLIM FAST french vanilla powder or even the chocolate kind is great. Its better than any creamer i've ever tried. I usually make my coffee kind of like my breakfast so adding the slim fast makes it so i get my caffeine and lots of good stuff from the slim fast powder. In each scoop of slimfast there is only 110 CALORIES....thats it. Hope this advice helps someone out :)

I asked my doctor the same question once and she told me no - black coffee will not make you gain weight. I did put on a significant amount of weight last year and thought the same thing. I actually had a hormone imbalance and thyroid issues. You may want to speak with your doctor and see if there is a medical reason for your weight gain.
