Can Coffee Keep Me Thin?

Thursday, 18 October 2012 10:00 AM

Question: I’m a woman in my 70s and I’m in pretty good health but I’m too thin. I try to gain weight but it is difficult for me. I drink a lot of coffee. Could this be causing my thinness?

Dr. Hibberd’s answer:
Coffee will not cause you to lose weight nor will it prevent you from gaining weight. If you have always been thin, thank your parents. If you have been losing weight, see your doctor for an evaluation.

Coffee won't promote thinness. Unexplained weight loss should prompt a visit to the doctor.
