 Latte Coffee a Day can Make You Fat

Drinking latte coffee everyday can make you fat, warn experts.

One sweetened milky drink from chains like Costa can have over four times the calories of an ordinary cup, according to fitness trainers' body the Register Of Exercise Professionals.

"Coffee is a culprit. We're attracted to lattes because the fat in milk tastes good but, unless we're active, we don't burn it off. If you went up a drink size, added syrup or had more than one, you could gain a stone," the Sun quoted Jean Marnoch, REPS chief registrar, as saying.

A small Costa Primo latte with full-fat milk contains 153 calories. A black coffee with a dash of semi-skimmed has a mere 35.

Even health-conscious people who avoid junk food don't realise how much fat and sugar they are gulping, says REPS, which has carried out a dietary study of 2,000 UK adults.
