  • When I was dieting, I didn't give up coffee I just switched to fat free half and half to cut down on calories. Coffee its self has almost no calories in it.... but I can't drink it black!

  • No. But I guess if it wouk=ld be Starbucks with all the added sweetners and crap then it would add too many calories. I always drink black coffee. ALL the "special" coffees are too fattening.

  • I made a lifestyle change and changed my coffee a bit.. I used to drink coffee with creamer and it is only splenda. When I go to Starbucks I get a skinny upside down caramel macchiatto- 90 calories for a tall. ( made with sugar free syrup and fat free milk)

  • I drink coffee with non dairy creamer or FF almond milk- no added sweeteners. Starbucks is a very rare treat. I can make a week's worth of coffee for the price of 1 big SB drink.
