Coffee has been unfairly demonized. It is actually very healthy and loaded with antioxidants. Studies show that coffee drinkers have a lower risk of serious diseases, like type 2 diabetes and Parkinson’s.
Unfortunately, stuff is sometimes added to coffee that turns this wonderful beverage into harmful sludge. If your “coffee” has a ton of artificial creamer and sugar, then it is NOT good for you.
It is loaded with liquid, empty calories, and will be just as unhealthy as any other sugar-sweetened beverage.
Alternatives: Drink plain coffee instead. Black is best, but small amounts of heavy cream or full-fat milk are fine as well.
