Lately I am having no success at losing weight. As far as my tracker shows, I am well below my calorie range.
I decided to take a close look at what I am eating and tracking.
I have always thought I was being very accurate in listing my foods. Even if they were not healthy choices.
Yesterday I researched how many calories in my communion. It totaled 6. SO not a big deal that I have not been tracking it all these years.
It makes me wonder, though, if I am not tracking other things, if perhaps it will all add up to a lot of extra calories.
Today I am looking at my coffee. I do not add anything to my coffee. I have a Keurig. But I usually have one cup of ground coffee, put through the Keurig with a reusable container.
I thought ground coffee surely does not have any calories. I looked at the package. NO nutritional information. I looked online and sure enough 0 calories. Good so far.
But, YIKES, when I looked at the flavored Kcup I use, it is 70 calories! 70 calories, once or sometimes twice a day, that I have never tracked.
This was a real eye opener for me. I will start adding this to my tracker. I probably will not enjoy drinking it as much anymore, knowing what I now know.
I will continue to explore this topic.
Do any of you track the calories in your coffee, or tea? Including the additives?
Have a happy, healthy day.
