  • Thanks for sharing this info.

    In the last four months I've only drank Black coffee, water and skim milk with my oatmeal, it is paying off.
  • Very useful information

  • A skinny, nonfat, almond milk iced drink at my favorite barrister came in at 22 gr of carbs for a grande. . Are you kiddin' me? I will make mine at home with SF syrup, protein powder and my own coffee topped with 0 cal "foam" AND get 20 gr of protein and 1 carb.
  • You have to be so careful of hidden sugar and fat calories with these kinds of drinks. The trade-off suggestions are awesome!
  • multiple studies now that show whole milk is better for you than previously thought. Recommended for children. Don't choose skim over whole for your kids. I used to buy only skim milk. I now buy 2% for the whole family.

    I still love a soda every now and then - but really watch my intake and use a SodaStream at home (less sugar than commercial sodas). And I make sure to track those calories!
  • love my water and anti inflammatory smoothies
  • My liquid downfall is Cappuccino and we bought 14 oz. cups to enjoy just enough. It is instant and I use water; not milk. I drink 2 of these a day and have cut back to 12 oz. servings.

    I used to drink a lot of soda, never been a big drinker of coffee or beer. I limit juice to my protein shakes/smoothies, and I have had a Soda Stream for several years now and only drink that instead of store bought. I like that they use Splenda, which is the only artificial sweetener that my body tolerates. I drink quite a bit of water and hot tea. I've been looking at the fruit infused water thing to switch it up a bit so have to see how that goes.
  • All of the yummy coffee drinks are enormous sugar and calorie bombs...no bueno! I am a girl who looOooOves coffee, and I typically drink it black. However, having a son once employed as a barista, I know that almost ALL drinks can be made in a skinnier version and can be made with sugar free syrups...sans whipped topping as well. Some would balk at the sugar free syrups, yet I have so little of it (we are talking rare treat) that I am okay with it. On a daily basis I have switched to unsweetened almond milk as a way to cut carbs, sugar and calories. Otherwise, I don't drink my calories...I am a girl who loves to eat tooOoO much.

    My guilty pleasure are the cheap, sweet cappuccinos at gas stations. I finally decided to take a look at the nutritional facts, and holy cow. That drink accounts for almost half my daily calories if I get a large. As you said in your post, I'll be more conscious of what I put in my coffee. I'll save those cappuccinos as a rare treat, but for now I'll use healthy creamers and calorie free sweeteners. Thanks for sharing!

    When my family wants to eat at McD's or anywhere else that offers tea, I fill 1/4 of the cup with the Sweet Tea and fill the rest of the cup with Unsweetened Tea. Still tastes sweet and takes the bitter out of the unsweet tea.
