Combining coffee with sweets is very harmful to health, says a weight loss specialist.

According to the expert, coffee is usually taken with desserts or with sugar. However, sweets and coffee are worse companions. 

The drink temporarily raises the level of glucose in the blood. 

Normally, the body has to use glucose, and the person feels a burst of energy. Then the effect of caffeine ends and you return to normal.

According to the dietician, if you drink coffee with something sweet, the glucose level rises excessively and then falls sharply.

Hypoglycemia can occur; it manifests itself with symptoms such as weakness, dizziness, cold and wet sweat, drowsiness.

For some people, this condition can be expressed weakly, for others stronger. It all depends on the individual organism.

Also, the best time for a cup of coffee is between meals, since the invigorating drink prevents the absorption of useful substances that enter the body with food.

“Coffee contains antinutrients, that is, substances that prevent the absorption of nutrients and vitamins from food. Therefore, it is better to consume the tonic drink between meals,” said the dietician.

In addition, the expert pointed out that the metabolism after drinking coffee is different, so personal observation of one’s own well-being must be crucial.

Also, keep track of the sugar you add to your coffee. About half of added sugar comes from beverages, including coffee and tea. A study in the May 2017 Public Health found that about two-thirds of coffee drinkers put sugar or sugary flavorings in their drinks.

The researchers also noted that more than 60% of the calories in their beverages came from added sugar.

Dr. Frank Hu, professor of nutrition from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health warns against being overzealous in your attempts to cut back on added sugar, as this can backfire.
