Oil (soy) based lactose free flavored (usually vanilla) liquid creamer. I tried to wean myself off cream & sugar but I drink really bad coffee normally.

Used to be fat free, but finally decided to taste the coffee and went BLACK, period, no more guessing or fooling around, looking for this flavor and that flavor, a lot easier, especially if you go somewhere. Lots of places have black coffee for free, even the doctor's office.

Plan for tomorrow, but enjoy the heck out of today.

I used to use the creamers but gradually changed to just some plain old 1% milk. Less chemicals, some protein, some vitamin D, and I can actually taste the coffee.

Neither. If I am going to have it, I am going to have the full version, but less of it, and I am weening my self off cream and sugar altogether.

I too am addicted to French Vanilla coffee creamer. I usually buy sugar free. If my hubby shops, Lord only knows what I'll get.

Anymore it's full fat creamer, but when it comes to "sugar free" or "fat free", I will choose fat-free, because some of the sugar-free creamers can have an odd taste.

I use half and half. The real stuff, from the cow. It has 40 calories for two tablespoons. Personally, I think the fat free stuff and the International Delight stuff doesn't taste good and it's loaded with chemicals.

Which one do you like better? Not a big calorie difference. I think the regular vanilla coffee cream has 35 calories-so not much more. I used to use vanilla cream and sugar. I slowly switched over to milk and sometimes a little bit of sugar. Once in a while i will use the vanilla cream that I still buy for my husband.

ANARIE: I am going to try the vanilla or almond flavoring you suggested.

I rarely use coffee creamer, but when I do it is organic full fat cream (I prefer Kalona Supernatural as it is just about the least processed cream I can find without milking the cow myself) with a bit of coconut sugar - those commercial coffee creamers like International Delights are loaded with junk and I personally won't consume them.

I like sugar free vanilla creamer. It has less calories than fat free and tastes much better. I've used fat free half and half for cooking and found it to be very odd. Generally milk products absorb into pasta and get thicker, fat free half and half just kind of puddles. I like artificial sweeteners, but for some reason, they taste better when in products than when added from the packets. So I prefer sugar free creamer to milk and artificial sweetener.

I would look at the label and see what kind of fat is in the sugar free. If it says "partially hydrogenated," I wouldn't use it. Even though it will say "zero grams trans fat," that doesn't really mean zero. It means up to .49 grams per serving, so if you use more than one serving, you could be getting a couple of grams of trans fat.

If your brand uses something other than partially hydrogenated oil, then the choice between sugar free or fat free depends on the rest of your diet and your needs. If the rest of what you eat is low fat but you eat a little too much sugar, then cutting the sugar-sweetened coffee might be best. If you're always coming out a little high on your fat target but you don't have any issues with sugar, then go for the fat free. If your macro-nutrient balance is good but you want to trim calories, then use whichever is lower in calories. (But measure, because sometimes you'll find that you need more of the lower calorie version to get the same effect.)

And do consider other options for your coffee, especially if your brand has hydrogenated oils. As you change the rest of your diet, you'll probably find that your sweet tooth abates at least a little, so you might be able to go with sugar or honey in a smaller amount than what's in the commercial creamer.

Personally, I use unsweetened fat-free half-and-half, which is really just milk, milk solids, and a miniscule amount of lecithin or corn syrup, and I add a drop of vanilla or almond flavoring and just half a teaspoon of sugar or artificial sweetener. That puts me at less than 50 calories for two cups of coffee.

I don't use fat free or sugar free anything (except for Metamucil)

I use half and half and sugar in my coffee.

Made it to my maintenance weight of 125 pounds.

Even though I have reached goal. I still don't know everything about weight loss.

I use regular coffee creamer, sometimes whole milk and I use sweet n' low to sweeten. Hardly ever do I drink coffee black.
