Just sitting here starting my first cup of decaf with lots of cream. I sure feels great when the weather is cold outside.

Sitting here drinking my second cup, reading this thread. We have a Keurig coffee maker so, it's just too easy to make a cup, or two. I drink regular in the am and decaf the rest of the day. It's freezing cold out right now which just makes the coffee that much more yummy.

I never drank coffee until about 4 years ago. I was introduced to gandoderma coffee. Gano is a type of mushroom the Chinese have been using for years for lots of things including boosting immune system, and overall well being. Anyway, I tried it. I love it. Drink one cup a day. Occasionally a few cups. Absolutely LOVE it. I do use stevia and SF creamer in whatever kind of coffee I drink. It just tastes like a strong cup of coffee. The latte is my favortte but it has carbs so i don't drink it much. Hardly ever. I don't know much about traditional coffee or flavors. Don't even ask me to order something at Starbucks

I can drink decaf coffee as well, it doesn't bother me. And sometimes I mix caffeinated and de-caf together when I feel like I'm drinking too much coffee - or if I'm going to drink it late in the day.

I don't like just plain iced coffee, but with flavoring and cream in it and ice cubes, it makes a refreshing drink.

I drink anywhere from 2 to 6 cups of coffee a day depending on the day. If I drink a protein shake I turn it into an iced latte.

I love, love, love my coffee. My favorite is also Dunkin Donut, and I can drink the decaf in that and can't tell any difference. I also can drink coffee just about anyway, with some cream with some Stevia, or just plain old black coffee. However...cannot do cold or iced coffee.

I love my 1-2 cups of coffee daily, too -- I only do decaf, due to hearth rhythm issues, but I manage (despite folks saying it tastes awful -- I can't tell the difference, as I'm not a connoisseur.)

I used to sweeten mine with one or 2 of the various DaVinci's sugar-free syrups, but stopped that, along with all other artificial sweeteners... I feel TONS better. No sugar cravings now!

That said, coffee with heavy cream is my treat for myself, and I've come to enjoy it unsweetened!

I do like the taste of good coffee but still stay with decaf mostly. I don't want to depend on coffee for energy, been there, done that. I like mine with about 1/4 cup of raw heavy cream. Occasionally, when it really counts, I'll have one cup of real coffee, like tomorrow morning when I have to get up at 5 am.
It does satisfy my enough in the morning that I don't need breakfast for 2-3 hours at least and it does the same in the afternoon. Probably the cream more than the coffee that does it though.

It IS a great snack!

I like coffee a lot, though I'm no connoisseur. All the ones people rave about tend to be too bitter for my taste. (Can't abide dark chocolate either. I always marvel that people enjoy it. Tastes like medicine.) I do like Dunkin Donuts brand though.

I have to have something to drink next to me all day long. Sadly, I still don't like water, though I've found ways to get myself to drink enough. I have to be careful with the coffee because I drink it "white" - enough dairy to cool it down. (Can't tolerate hot beverages either!) If I'm not careful I'll add way too many calories. At work I put an inch or so of ice at the bottom of a 16 oz. cup, fill it to within an inch or so of the top, then finish off with half and half. At home I water the half an half down.

~ Scheduling my workday workouts like I would schedule a meeting and
~ Scheduling a defined half hour for lunch, when I work/play only on personal business

I drink a lot of coffee - and sometimes mid/late afternoon when I'm thinking I should eat something, a cup of coffee with some hwc and even a little coconut oil in it takes care of the urge to eat without adding carbs. (I have to have enough calories left for the day tho to be able to do this).

I used to love coffee, but it did spike my insulin after drinking it. I just knew it was not real hunger and would go away after thirty minutes.

So, I haven't done any research on carbs or anything but, I have discovered that coffee is an awesome snack. I have started drinking several cups a day (a few weeks ago I wasn't a coffee drinker at all). It's yummy and apparently low carb enough as my belt and pants are still getting and staying lose. I'm on the lowest hole on all my belts. I'll be needing to buy some in the immediate future.

So, if I start craving something sweet and semi-chocolate-ish, I fix some coffee and add light or heavy cream rather than milk or half an half and a packet or two of stevia or monk fruit sweetner. I'll use splenda occasionally if I run out of the natural stuff.

Who knew coffee was a great treat?
