Black coffee doesn't have lots of calories, but once you start adding in the extras, the total skyrockets. Be mindful with the cream and sugar -- not to mention the whipped cream and flavored syrups -- and avoid those extravagant barista drinks (that will save you money, too). Better choices are low-fat milk or soy milk with a small amount of sugar. If straight coffee isn't fancy enough, add cocoa powder or cinnamon for some extra zing.
