Most people who are becoming more health conscious have chosen to move away from using cream in their coffee and are using milk or some type of creamer instead. But, for those who do still pour a few tablespoons of cream in their morning cup of coffee or for those who use cream for other purposes, it’s important to know the calories that are going to come with that cream so you can work it into your daily calorie total.
Let’s take a look at what you need to know.
Major Nutrients Found In Cream
The big drawback to cream as you can see above is the fact that it is very high in saturated fat content. Since high intakes of saturated fat can lead to problems such as heart disease or very high cholesterol, you should be avoiding this.
Additionally, just a couple tablespoons of cream in each cup of coffee you drink over the course of the day will really add up over time, so this could also hinder the fat loss progress that you make.
Cream also contains quite a bit of sodium as well, so that’s yet another big problem with including too much of this in your diet plan.
When selecting cream you can look for reduced fat varieties, so given the fact that it is so high in saturated fat, this would be a very smart idea.
As soon as you get the cream home be sure that you store it immediately in the fridge as well as this will prevent it from spoiling and keep it fresh.
