elsie chag's Journal, 18 August 2018

Today I tried something new. BLACK COFFEE with one Splenda packet. I usually take my coffee with half & half and granulated Splenda, but I was frustrated to see my food diary started with 140 cals before eating breakfast. If I can fast I can do this too!!

140 seems a lot of calories for coffee - is that just one cup? Hubby drinks Dolce Gusto Cafe Au Lait (loves it... the Dolce Gusto machine is best purchase we've ever made for him), which is basially already mixed with the milk, and without sugar it comes out at only 40 calories.

I use fat free 1/2 and 1/2, low calorie, it works great for me.

I hope you enjoyed it! You would die if you saw my coffee (10 Splenda packets, 100 calories of heavy cream, 1/2 scoop (50 calories) of protein powder and 100 calories of MCT oil). But, only 2 carbs! :)

I use 30 ml of Land-of-Lakes fat free creamer and 3 packets of Splenda in a 12 oz. cup of coffee every morning. Total calories 20. I have a food scale that i use to help track my calories.

FioLog- 140 calories is what I estimated for the 4 tbs. of half and half I used ( used to use )

I add a bit protein powder in mine, like a teaspoon or less. Takes care of cream and sweetener. I normally just add cream no sweeteners but the protein powder add a little flavor

I can go without sweet in my coffee, but I have to put something creamy. I do my coffee with unsweetened almond milk (30cal/cup).

Try Silk Almond Creamer (caramel, hazelnut, vanilla), 1T, 25 cals, 4 g carbs. :) Yum!

I found that the sugar free creamers are only 35 cal per tblspn they do a good job of sweeting my coffee and an extra 2 tblspns of skim milk makes for a great morning pick up and you've only consumed 50 cal.

That’s something everyone struggles with: comfort beverages

I used to always “flavor my coffee”...but thanks to a super strict pageant diet back in 2012 when I was competing for Miss Michigan USA...I had to go with straight black coffee. It really sucked at first...but then I really grew to love the actual flavor of coffee....especially working for a German company where I have he use of the best coffee makers in the world! I encourage everybody to try it for a while...such a great way to cut calories... and you can really grow to love the taste! just make sure it’s good coffee (not McDonald’s :))

Splenda is made from sugar. The calories have been taken out, but it's still sugar. Diabetics should not use Splenda.

2 tablespoons of half and half is only 40 calories

Congrats on going black 😊 I drink at least 2 cups of coffee. I use 2tbls of sugar free international delight & 2 tbls of community coffee creamer w/ sweetner. It is what it is for me! Tomato, tomato!
