Does it really make a difference if I put cream and sugar in my morning coffee

Yes. Skipping a 16-calorie packet of sugar every day isn’t going to shrink your waistline dramatically—you’re only saving about 2 pounds’ worth of calories per year. But priming your sweet tooth first thing in the morning can only lead to further cravings later in the day. If you’re a sugar junkie, dial back the sweetness quotient in everything you eat—from that first cup of joe to the kind of chocolate you instinctively crave. That way it’ll be harder to see what you’re missing. The same goes for the cream. If eliminating both additions is too radical, try cutting one but not the other—or just gradually reducing one at a time.
