Question: I’m a senior in good health, but everyone says I’m too thin. I can’t seem to gain weight, no matter what I eat. I drink a lot of coffee. Could this be causing my thinness?
Dr. Hibberd’s answer:
Coffee won’t cause weight loss or prevent weight gain. If you have always been thin, thank your parents. Being thin is rarely a bad thing.
But if you have been losing weight recently, you should see your doctor for an evaluation.
