Can Coffee Make You Fat

Print Q. I saw you on FOX television, where you said, “Coffee can make you as fat as a pig!” How’s this possible if the coffee doesn’t contain any milk, cream, or sugar? Do sweeteners make this situation worse? A. Coffee’s ability to make you fat has nothing to do with the added creamer or sweetener. Plain black coffee can make you fat. Though I discovered that coffee and caffeine triggered fat storage in human fat cells in the 1980s and that coffee/caffeine impaired blood glucose levels, thus triggering a metabolic cascade of negative physical events in the human body, more current independent research has validated my original findings. For many years, I felt like I was banging my head against a brick wall in maintaining my position that coffee and caffeine are fattening. Luckily, research caught up and validated my original research, including the American Diabetes Association and the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition: • Greenberg JA, Owen DR, Geliebter A. Decaffeinated coffee and glucose metabolism in young men. Diabetes Care. 2010 Feb;33(2):278-80. Epub 2009 Nov 16. • Lane JD, Feinglos MN, Surwit RS. Caffeine increases ambulatory glucose and postprandial res Continue reading >>

    I'm pre diabetic and recently had a blood test to check for diabetes, kidney function and liver function. I did not fast. I had eaten about 2 1/2 hours before the test. It showed my glucose 155.
    Is this a normal number to have after 2 1/2 hours after eating? Or should the number be lower?

    Hi marip1,
    A person's blood glucose level 2.5 hours after eating, if they do not have pre-diabetes or diabetes, would be under 100 and most likely in the 80's. As a person with type 2 diabetes my goal at 2 hours after eating is to be under 100 and best case would be if I was back in the 80's range.
