I learned to love black coffee by "refreshing" my coffee without adding more milk and sugar. When you're about 1/3 through your cup with milk and sugar, add some more black coffee, but no milk or sugar. Over the course of weeks, you'll get used to less milk and sugar, and can wean yourself off!
I learned that when I crave sugar, the best thing I can do is drink black coffee! Bitter is the opposite of sweet. ( and I truly enjoy black coffee). When I do this, my sugar craving goes away completely! Try it!
I have learned this week that if I eat a tbs of virgin coconut oil before my hard work out I can blast thru it. Before I had been drinking a half cup of black coffee (literally 4oz.) but after 15 minutes I was having a hard time focusing. So besides staying hydrated the coconut oil has really helped out with stamina and seems to clear some of the brain fog. I love the way it tastes too. 334
