I love my morning coffee. I mean, I really love it. I like to sit and drink it mornings and kind of get my bearings. Before starting Jorge Cruise's Belly Fat Cure I had two different types of coffee: Star Bucks Vanilla Latte or homemade coffee with CoffeeMate flavored creamers
I still remember discovering for the first time that artificial sweeteners were not allowed on the BFC. My first thought were my Coke Zeros, and I even think about what was in my CoffeeMate. I usually bought the Sugar Free variety and didn't even want to think about what was in it. I gave up the diet soda right away, on day one of the diet. But I had a large container of CoffeeMate and kept using it until it was empty. When I went shopping the next time and did my new label checking thing, I was SO disappointed that I couldn't find a good alternative for sweetening my coffee.
So now I have my coffee with heavy cream. I tried half & half, but I don't like it as much. I wish I did though, as it is much less expensive and I can buy it in larger containers at most stores. At Starbucks I order a Bold Brew of the Day or an Americano (ask for "Room for Cream"), and add half & half myself (Starbucks doesn't offer heavy cream). If you don't ask for "Room for Cream" you end up dumping coffee in the trash can, as the cup will be too full to add the half & half. I personally do not use any sweeteners in my coffee, I just weaned myself from it, even though I clearly liked a very sweet coffee before the BFC. I hear of people adding up to 3 packets of a stevia sweetener to a cup of coffee, and that can really add up. I recommend limiting yourself on the sweeteners as much as possible for things you eat regularly.
How do you drink your coffee on the Belly Fat Cure?
Amazon also has several flavored Stevia products that mimic the flavors found in CoffeeMate. They are very reasonably priced too. You can check them out HERE. I have tried several of them and they are good, but I haven't used them past the initial taste test.
