Anyways so in comes weight watchers and of course I had to change the way I drank my coffee. In the beginning I worked on just reducing the amount of cream and sugar. It was baby steps. I stopped having 3 a day and went to 2. Then over time I cut out the sugar and started using splenda. Then over time I stopped using cream and went to a fat free creamer. This like all of my healthy additions did not happen over night. And now I come to realize that this may be how everything has been effective.
When you start a diet the urge is to purge and go full blast calorie slashing and drop pounds quick. But when you are changing your life style permanently you cannot do it. It will not become a habit if you force it all at once. So by looking at the way I consume my coffee is kind of a mirror image of this. Eventually I went to a fat free non dairy creamer made by Coffee Mate and 2 packets of Truvia. That my friends took 9 months! But after all this time it is habit for me and when I even take a sip of bf's coffee with normal cream and sugar it tastes gross to me.
Last week I decided that there were more ingredients that I could not pronounce in that creamer, and that if I wanted to continue with my clean eating plan that I needed to find a coffee alternative. In comes So Delicious!
Since going dairy free for March I have felt much better. My stomach bloating has gone completely away and I feel better. So now I must add dairy free to the gluten free diet I already follow. It is ok because I have found some great things and this creamer is one of them! It has no fat, and at only 10 calories a tablespoon it is a deal!
So now my coffee consists of this coconut milk creamer, some cinnamon, and 2 packets of truvia.
mmmmmmmmmmmm How do you drink your coffee?
