I used to love the smell of coffee but I hated the taste. This has recently changed. In the past month I’ve started drinking coffee. A lot of coffee. I’d say I go through three to six cups per day. (I blame it on the coolness of our office’s new Star Trek-like coffee maker, but that’s a story for another day.)
I get no buzz from caffeine, so being able to sleep or focus my brain after a few cups is no problem at all. I have, however, found that drinking that much coffee seems to snap my body into a state where my appetite is heavily supressed. Suddenly I’m no longer hungry for lunch most days. In fact I don’t usually start to feel hungry until I get home from work around 5pm.
My 10-year high school reunion is coming up in July and I could stand to lose about 20 pounds before then. I’m thinking if I keep heading down this coffee road I’ll be in pretty good shape!
Black coffee contains no calories, no carbs, no sugar, and no fat. I drink it black and I drink it often! I’ll let you know in July if this all-coffee, all-the-time diet worked for me.
