Can coffee with cream and regular sugar make you gain weight?

Can coffee with cream and regular sugar make you gain weight? Like if you drink 1-2 small mugs of it every morning? I usually use Splenda but sugar is provided at work.
Please, no rude comments.

  • Well if you are using half a pound of sugar yes. For the most part it shouldn't be enough to cause any substantial weight gain.

    • Thanks. I've been drinking a lot more coffee then I usually do so just wondered?

    • I think caffeine can contribute to cortisol production in the body which can cause weight gain.

  • Caffeine alone can make you gain weight because it alters your metabolism. Initially it helps but then you get a backlash and go the other way.

    • Never thought about that. Thanks

    • Yes and soda with caffeine and sugar is the worst. Coke or Mountain Dew, for example. Did you know that a 12 oz. soda has 10 teaspoons of sugar? I can eat anything that's healthy and never gain weight. Once when I took this grueling job, I got into a kick of drinking Coca-Cola. I gained 5 lbs. in 3 weeks! That was the end of that. My weight normalized again in about 10 days.

    • Yeah, I usually drink diet coke and water with flavoring. I normally drink coffee and have been fine but lately it's been with regular sugar which I've stopped. I've already lost 2 lbs.

  • Yes, the cream is going to make you fat and the sugar is going to give you diabetes.

  • If its a lot of sugar it might affect your weight but I don't think it creates a significant impact on your body unless you are very sensitive to unhealthy food. If you drink a coke or a chocolate chiller from tim hortons that is probably 40 - 60 times more sugar than some sugar people put in their daily coffee.

    • Great. Thanks for your help!😊

  • It's extra calories but I doubt you're consuming so many extra calories that you'd gain weight. Why not bring in your own sweetner or switch to plain tea?
