    Yup. This is what gets me every time. I will fall into the 'I don't need to measure that; I use it all the time" mind set and then when I do measure I think, "Holy cow, I use 1/4 cup at a time?!" I'm trying to train myself to drink coffee black. Trying.

    I only use cream when the cow is in milk. I've been drinking black coffee since I dried her up in january. I got used to it ok. I guess since I have no way to measure the caloric value of her cream, I'll have to take it easy, or just not get in the habit of using it! Yikes!
    The process is simple: Free your mind, and your ass will follow.

    I love my tea filled with cream (or, now that I can't do dairy, almond milk). I've gotten to the point where I can drink it "black". Don't like it near as well, but am becoming used to it.

    Whole milk has only 10 calories per tablespoon and coconut milk has 26. Either one of those will suit me just fine.
    TOTALLY!

    I cringe when my mother just blobs half the carton in her morning coffee, but she's
    70, 5'1 and 95lbs - so who cares.

    THIS is why I put my coffee cup on the scale and then deliberately JUST put in
    15g, then 70g of whole milk. Perfect, and not 5K calories.

    On the other hand, I -do- buy half gallon sized heavy cream because my eldest
    needs to be TRICKED into consuming something other than air soup and wind pie.

    Little bugger NEVER wants to eat breakfast before school (i don't do breakfast either,
    but youngest is a chow hound, so that's good) and then he comes home with an uneaten
    snack and ONE bite taken out of his lunch.

    HOW DOES HE EXIST?

    10 years old, 55lbs.

    That's less than some damn toddlers out there.

    So I got wise and started asking him if he wanted "chocolate milk" for breakfast.... snicker.

    Low and behold, he did - so, 90g of heavy cream, 300g of whole milk and then the chocolate
    mix, which no, it's not primal, but neither is he, so get off me, which has all those vitamins
    shoved into the powder, his "chocolate milk" turns out to be 570 calories.

    WINNING

    In other news, one month of doing shangri-la and very low carb
    the results are in at:

    SW - 128.8
    CW - 123.0
    =
    -5.8

    So, not to shabby and on to month #2!

    I weigh every thing I put in my mouth. The calories from the HWC are part of my plan. Whole milk has sugars (yes naturally occurring, but sugar), so I don't use it. Sugar is my evil.

    I don't want something I have to teach myself to like. I love my morning matcha with HWC and kerrygold.

    I use HWC because otherwise I won't get those calories at all.
    I won't eat early in the day due to food aversion... so coffee w/ HWC or I'll just start drinking water or herbal tea.

    And if I skip those calories there just isn't room for them later because I have limited food volume issues.
    It's use HWC or under eat calories.

    But I totally see where it can be a problem for some people.

    I TRIED to do coconut milk for a while(before I figured out I was under eating), but URG... so bad in coffee IMO. lol

    Hope this helps.
    Thanks for the feedback, I know I need to find the motivation to get going with the toning exercises, especially as I want to look good for my birthday in 8 months time. I guess if I start now, that will give me time to see some results

    I am curious how whole milk can have sugar but heavy cream doesn't. I know they come out of the same faucet. Enlighten me, please.
    Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.
