BuffyBear's Journal, 27 December 2011

Today is Day 2 of having no sweetener in my coffee (a New Years Resolution started early). This is hard - I love my nice sweet coffee!

I am back at work today. My Office is getting painted so I won't have access to my computer after 9:30 - but I'll check up to see how everybody is doing as soon as I get home.

So, with the best intentions, here is a toast you all with a bitter cup.
168.0 lb Lost so far: 18.0 lb.    Still to go: 36.0 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

Diet Calendar Entry for 27 December 2011:
54 kcal Fat: 4.91g | Prot: 1.17g | Carb: 0.99g.   Breakfast: cream, half and half, brewed coffee, almond milk. more...
on diet Atkins   losing 7.0 lb a week


Buffy - I was in my early twenties, and on a 'diet'... when I first eliminated sugar from my coffee. Back then it was a 'low fat' plan, and I also eliminated cream! But now that I have been drinking it black all these years... doesn't bother me a bit! I just don't like it too 'dark' (roast wise)... it tastes too bitter. I like the bkfst blends or the medium roasts better. Hope you have a great day! Much Love.

Paula - Thanks for the encouragement. I've been drinking artificial sweetener in my coffee since the low fat days as well. Time to give my body a break.

My DH always tells me I should try drinking coffee black, maybe now would be a good time for me to give up the sweetners ?

Way to go Buffy! I know that giving up artificial sweetners is hard. I read somewhere that they give you cravings for more sweetners. You can do anything you set your mind to. Love and Hugs

Good for you Buffy. I enjoy heavy cream in my coffee but can drink it black when I need to. I drink mine iced though. Even this time of year.

Good for you Buffy. Now you can experiment with different coffees....no, not the flavored ones....the ones that are dark....or medium.....or light and bright....or bold with fruity undertones....or whatever description they choose to write! Some are pretty exotic, but you might develop a discerning palate for coffee after all this!

I quit drinking sweeteners and sugars in my coffee way back during some diet craze that required black coffee. I was sooo skinny back then, too. I drink Half n Half in my coffee or heavy cream. I love it this way.

Good for you, but Yucky! Coffee is bad enough...but, straight up....blech! I always love the smell of coffee though, but to me...yucky, yucky taste no matter what I put in it! I prefer my caffeine in the pill form!

If they could make it taste as good as it smells,I'd try it. do they it in a chocolate brownie style?
