I have to have my morning cup of coffee every day, so here is how I make it work for me. I add one serving of EAS light protein powder (found at Target) into my coffee with 2 packets of Stevia. The protein powder adds 100 calories, but with 15 grams of protein it helps keep me full for a long time and cuts down on how much sweetener I need to add. Depending on what flavor you get, it's an easy and healthier way of getting that vanilla latte or chocolate mocha taste every morning.

That once upon a time regular routine, that was SUCCESSFUL, slipped away. TIME TO MAKE THE CHANGE! FOR MYSELF, this is going to involve starting my day with at least 32 oz of water, 2-3 cups of coffee, & a PROTEIN DRINK. Lunch will be light but healthy: example 2-3 eggs, another protein drink, and steamed veggies. Afternoon snack: possibly a rice cake or two with polinar all fruit jelly, & supper another protein drink, with home made veggie stew. 224
Of course this is going to involve WITHDRAW! I call this the 10 day BOOT CAMP! HA! IT CAN BE WICKED, BUT IF ONE IS TRULY READY, TEMPTATION CAN BE FOUGHT...FAITH, PRAYER, THINKING POSITIVE, & KNOWING FULL GOOD AND WELL, THAT DETERMINATION PAYS OFF!!! Cut out the soda, the junk sweets, no meal skips!!
Instead of adding coffee cream to my coffee I add some of my EAS Carb Advantage protein drink to my coffee. It sweetens it and gives a creamy taste. I save calories that way because I drink at least 2 cups of coffee a day.
