My family and close friends know just how addicted I am to coffee. My mom, for example, has been trying unsuccessfully to convince me to reduce my coffee intake. She said that too much of it is why I cannot gain weight. We don’t know how true that is. However, I’m well aware that caffeine is a common ingredient in cellulite remover.
Mom’s advice fell on my deaf ears and I, of course, still drink coffee as frequent as I like. The taste, the aroma, and the time I spend enjoying a hot mug of coffee are almost as positive as the benefits of drinking it.
I might not be reducing the amount of coffee I drink everyday, but am definitely cutting down sugar. Last time I used to add 2(!!!!!) teaspoons but eventually managed to lessen to less than half a teaspoon per mug. Somehow I still need to go with zero-sugar coffee because sugar is not needed in our diet. Imagine if I’m consuming 4 mugs a day, which could add up to 2 teaspoons of sugar!
I’m not sure why I want to talk about coffee, sugar… Perhaps because my colleagues are fasting for a month starting from today, so I’m somewhat more conscious of drinking/eating in front of them. Perhaps too, since I’m not done with my blood sampling yet, I want to reduce sugar intake to get better glucose reading (self-cheating, so to speak).
Anyway, selamat berpuasa to all Muslim friends!
