Im not giving up my coffe. I have my coffe first thing in the morning and drink it how iI like. I did switch to fat free cream. Unless you are a diabetic and have to limit your sugar, that might be a diffrent story. To me this is a lifestyle change. My life includes coffe. There is actually a group on here for coffe lovers. The bottom line is to do what works for you.



Love it!

you only have one cup per day, enjoy it! Isn't that only about 35 calories? I know you are looking for a substitute but keep thinking lifestyle change and moderation. One cup a day isn't going to kill your goals and if it makes you feel less deprived it might even help keep you motivated.



this is the best advice.
I drink mine black cos that's how i like it!

I am not about to give up my coffee. Depending on my mood I will drink it black or I will add skim milk and I tsp of sugar.

I love French Vanilla Coffeemate....I put it in my coffee everyday. i factor it into my daily caloric intake. I love my coffee and plan on still being able to enjoy it the way I like it. To me 70 calories is worth it. The rest of the day I'm all water. I'm trying to make a life style change...drinking something i will hate doesn't have to be a part of it.

The one thing I splurge on daily is my coffee. I have one cup and cannot give up my creamer.

Also I made my own creamer, but only to cut out all the "artificial stuff" in creamers. Trying to keep all that "stuff" out of my diet. I use 1 can sweetened condensed milk, 1 1/2 cup half and half and 2-3 tablespoons vanilla extract. You can use light condensed milk and switch to lowfat milk or skim milk instead of half and half to cut calories. It taste just as good as the french vanilla creamer sold in stores and you know exactly what's in it.

Creamer and sugar, not a lot of sugar my creamer is only 10 calories per TBSP and I usually use 2 or 3 depending on the day.

I agree, it it's just one cup a day, go for it! This is definitely a lifestyle change so make sure you don't cut everything out. One cup will not sabotage you. BTW, I love International Delights and I've also created a recipe that I add to my diary everyday...I named my recipe...Trina's Must Have Coffee! LOL! That way, folks don't question me. Have a great day and tomorrow, coffee is on me! LOL!

Almond milk / hazelnut milk or coconut milk no sugar

I drink it just with the french vanilla dont add sugar

I drink flavored coffee with 1 Stevia in the Raw packet. I usually drink 3 cups a day because this was my soda replacement 1 year ago.

I used to use cream, but on another diet plan I tried creamers were not allowed so I decided to try with just sweetener and found that I enjoy it this way.

I used to get a white chocolate mocha every weekday from Caribou, but now I just put some instant coffee in my Body By Vi shakes, and it fullfills my coffee crave. Its like a cold iced coffee, and its good for you!!! :)

Protein powder sometimes. It's best with iced coffee but works as a great "creamer" in hot coffee as well.

otherwise light half n half or black w/ 1 truvia/stevia.


What a great idea!!!

2 tbs of Organic Creamer and 1-1/2 tsp of Sugar in The Raw. I'm cutting down the amount of sugar by 1/2 tsp. each week until I can drink it without any.

I drink 2-3 cups of coffee a day. I rarely use creamer, just a fake sugar substitute, otherwise I use to much sugar. Once in a while I add creamer, I like a sweet cream creamer flavored creamer once in awhile.

I have one cup a day in the afternoon with 3tsp of sugar and 2tsp of non-dairy powder creamer. I have tried to get rid of the sugar but I will make it up somewhere else. It's pretty much my only sugar for the day except for dessert sometimes. I would be a total B&*(H! without it!

unsweetened almond milk because I am allergic to dairy but heavy creamer was all I used before I found out about my allergy . it's not our jobs to police others diets on here but I agree it's better to have a high fat content and no chemicals clogging up your system. I also like fair trade coffee's and organics but not everybody can afford that kind of splurge
