Coffee or no coffee? 

The smell of coffee is enough to make many people not just want but need a coffee. Okay so maybe we are slightly exaggerating but there is definitely something about the smell that immediately makes you want that caffeine fix.

There are so many different types of coffee available now days it’s almost impossible to know which one to order. Americano, flat white, cappuccino, lattes, filter, mocha, iced coffee etc etc. Once you have eventually chosen your coffee the next question is any syrup with that? Skimmed milk or full fat? This is when you can start to add those unwanted calories into your drink without even realising.

A fairly low calorific drink can suddenly turn into a sugar packed high calorie drink. Your standard coffee has now turned into a coffee with this that and the other added in and is now more like eating a dessert, which does of course taste delicious but you know what they say a moment on the lips a lifetime on the hips.

Monday morning, the morning that most people dread and often cannot get through without copious amounts of coffee or at least this is what they have learnt to tell themselves. We are massively guilty of this as well, the first thing we do at work is grab a coffee because of course we cannot function without one.

Is this really true though? Most nights we get over 8 hours sleeps which is far more than most. We live a healthy and balance lifestyle the majority of the time, so is this caffeine addiction just a really bad habit?
