Coffee: No, as long as you don't wait too long before breakfast as it can cause stomach upset without food. Best wishes.

Coffee.: Drinking one cup of coffee per day is fine. There are some touted health benefits to coffee. Just make sure it's not one of those fancy calorie-laden store-sold coffee creations. Just have a simple cup of coffee, with milk and sugar if you choose.
