I would never start the day without a decent breakfast.
But I believe some start their day with a coffee.

Here's a (small) study which indicates that it's a bad idea, as coffee on an empty stomach impairs one's ability to metabolise sugar.

Perhaps another causation in the cascade of T2 diabetes?

So where's the sugar coming from if they're not eating? Presumably that'll be down to milk in the coffee?

Which kind-of begs the question of the sugar-rich but light non-filling breakfast taken with coffee. For example, a croissant, a fruit, or a small portion of cereal. And am I any better off with tea than coffee?

Anyone who has lived in France will realise that the coffee/croissant mix does not lead to obesity. Also, in this single study, n=29, so not exactly definitive.
So yeah, you can take my coffee from my cold, dead, diabetic hands.
