I, like LakeLover, am not an expert. That being said, I have been very happy with my weight loss so far, and I drink something caffeinated every day. Just remember to drink extra water cup-for-cup in addition to your regular daily water intake, and remember to watch what you put in your coffee! Sweetener packets add carbs! I stick to liquid stevia (comes in favors!) and liquid generic sucralose (Splenda). Both have no hidden carby fillers.

I'm drinking my breakfast right now! Cold espresso over ice with a vanilla rtd, with a few drops of English Toffee liquid stevia. Ahh-mazing!
