How Many Calories Are Really in Your Cup Coffee?

Hidden Calories in Your Cup of Joe

Just about everyone I know consumes at least one cup of coffee a day. That roasted rich beverage actually has a lot of health benefits, and an eight ounce cup only contains two calories, so it won't bust your waistline. The thing is, not a lot of people enjoy their coffee black, and all the sweeteners and flavorings people use can add up to some major calories. I'm not saying you should ditch your cup of joe, just be mindful of how many calories your cup contains.
