The theory behind the coffee diet is that coffee contains caffeine and caffeine can increase your metabolic rate by up to 10%. Increasing your metabolic rate lets you eat more calories and stay the same weight, or if you eat fewer calories than your body needs then you will lose weight.
However, there is a catch. As soon as you start to add milk, creamer, sugar etc your coffee diet goes right out of the window as any calories you may burn as a result of the caffeine effect on your metabolism can easily be used up by the additions.
You cannot go far without reading about amazing diet success stories, stories of fast weight loss with before and after pictures. Unfortunately the claims are not always quite as good as they first appear and many lead you down a road that can only end up in disappointment, having spent your money and possibly endured a difficult diet.

Calorie counting has been around for a long time and many weight loss programs state their diet ‘will only help as part of a calorie controlled diet’. These few words are often overlooked, they blend into the background while the larger weight loss claims grab your attention, however without the inclusion of a calorie controlled diet the success of the latest new super diet is often compromised.
