Secrets of Success

Coffee Additives



I am a big fan (WAS) of putting yummies into my coffee in the morning. I would literally pour creamer in my cup. Now, I am being accountable and I leave a Tablespoon out for me and I add only 2 T. which I am told is 30 calories. This little thing must amount to a big thing in time. Shelley

  • You can also try flavored coffee without the creamer for 0 calories. - by SNOBENSON1
  • I'm not one that likes to eat first thing in the morning so I usually pack fat-free milk, cereal and fruit for when I arrive at work and have my coffee with just 1 Tbsp of fat-free creamer as a treat for when I finish my breakfast. - by CHANGINGHABITS1
    Good move! You must be using the same sugar-free creamer I do :) - by DENI_ZEN
  • I was a "free-pourer" also. My measuring spoons and measuring cup have become my new best friends. And my coffee still tastes just as good! - by GRAMMYMCCANN
  • It's funny how many women here at the office only have "coffee" for breakfast. Coffee turned white with creamer! Two or three cups of that and you could have had a real breakfast. It smells great, but I just avoid it all together now. - by LORISMITH2573
  • I do the same thing when I started doing it I was putting 4 Tbsp of creamer and 3 Tbsp of sugar. over 200 cals. since tracking it I am down to only 3 Tbsp of creamer. - by KSTREET1
