Thankfully, I drink my coffee black with no sugar. My worst is milkshakes!

lol I started modifying my starbucks orders after I looked up the calories. Fat free milk and no whipped cream for me! Takes away a lot of calories that way

Milkshakes are insane! It's like they have more calories by volume than straight ice cream. Just give me the ice-cream!

Dr. Pepper is my weakness! I've managed to try to only drink 1/2 of a 20 oz bottle a day. Enough to get my craving satisfied, but not enough to totally deplete my caloric needs.

I am absolutely terrible at drinking my calories! I love fizzy drink!! and could drink a big bottle of it a day and I dont like the artificial stuff so I try my hardest to stick to one fizzy a day :D


This is exactly my problem too. It goes down so quickly, you don't realize how much you are drinking!

When I go out to eat it's a little easier to pick a healthy meal but when it comes to the beverages it can get tricky - I order sparkling water! This at least makes me feel like I am fully participating in the meal, and I think it makes my friends feel better.

I also keep lemon sparkling water in my fridge for times when I feel like I want treat.

did you realise there is a "40% less calories" option for that particular drink haha..

Bottle of wine is 700 calories? Sweet. That's the perfect amount of calories for dinner.
November 29, 2012 12:36 PM
A lot of fruit smoothies are loaded with calories, not to mention tons of sugar!
November 29, 2012 12:37 PM
I drink my calories but I haven't found anything close to that (thankfully!) If it fits into my day, I'll have it (within reason at least)

I love, love, love eggnog, too...but there is an eggnog flavored Silk soy milk I wanna try..the chocolate one is good and low cal, so I'm hoping the eggnog tastes as good...nothing is as good as the real thing, though :(

I make a shake every morning - coconut milk, water, frozen blueberries, protein powder, and honey. Makes 3-4 glasses of drink. Comes out to about 500 calories. Very filling too!

This is also my breakfast, so it fits into my macros well. :P

I tried the soy one last year and didn't like it at all. I think there's actually low-fat versions of eggnog in stores but I haven't seen them yet.

Is there anything you've drank that you can't believe contained that many calories?


My first day logging here last year. McDonald's Egg McMuffin and a Cafe Mocha. The mocha had more calories than the sandwich!! I had to break my Cafe Mocha addiction. Still have an Egg McMuffin once in a great while but never the Mocha.

It depends on the wine. Generally, most wines are 110 - 150 calories per serving (5 oz /150 ml) and there are 5 glasses per standard bottle. Sweeter wines generally have more calories.

I do and I don't. I only drink water and tea without sweetener (or maybe a bit of soda water with lime or the rare coffee with soy milk) during the day. But I always leave calories every week for a gorgeous glass of wine (or two) for those lovely evenings with friends. A lady has gotta live :)

The Silk Nog is still 180 calories per cup, just FYI. A little less than normal Egg Nog, but still pretty high for a cup of liquid!

I refuse to drink my calories for the most part. I drink only water & green tea which neither of those have calories. I will occasionaly get a dunks coffee or a hot cocoa for a treat but that's about it. I don't drink alcohol either so that helps.

I had to give up my caribou white hot chocolate. Its only 530 calories i think but still not worth it.

My Freshman 15 (more like 20) came from drinking Chocolate malts almost every night for 2 months (I was battling a case of "I don't want to be in school but I don't want to go home, so I'll just take it out on food") and Cappuccinos with two shots of vanilla. Now if I drink my calories it's soda (trying to quit but since I don't drink coffee, it's my caffeine) or an occasional milkshake.
