Do Take Your Coffee With Sugar?

When I was working on losing my baby weight I learned to live without a few things. One of those things was sugar in my coffee. When I was able to get back on the bean post-breastfeeding, I learned to love my coffee without adding any sweetener. I heated up the milk and started to drink my coffee cafe-au-lait style.

This habit hasn't gone away since I think of it as a great way to save calories. I'm wondering: how do you take your coffee?

I started using stevia extract in my coffee instead of the artificial gunk.

Sugar is as addicting as crack cocaine. You will always want more of it. After low-carbing for a few months, it's amazing how I can longer tolerate the level of sweetness that most people consider normal. It tastes like pure sugar water!

I don't drink coffee, but I do drink tea and I'm starting to put less and less sugar in it - I've actually found a couple of teas where I don't need any sugar and I hope that will help me to cut back when drinking the kinds I usually put sugar in...

My once a week decaf latte is one of the few pleasures I have in my life. STAY AWAY FROM MY COFFEE. ;P I don't drink sugar in my "regular" drinks though. :)

I like mine with Equal or Splenda and French Vanilla Fat-free Coffeemate. I also don't care if it's "bad for you"; I like the way it tastes and I figure life's too short to drink coffee I don't like, so I'll drink my coffee with my Splenda or Equal in it. Everything gives you cancer anyway, right?

My mom used to get headaches every time she tried to stopped drinking coffee, so I never even started. Its green tea for me!

I use Splenda and Stevia and have cut down a lot on both of these. I try to have my coffee black if it's really, really good. I'm inclined to way too much sugar, so this is my only source of sweetness at the moment.

I use silk vanilla soymilk in my coffee... ( once in awhile will use sugar for kicks or if I'm working out too much and am adding calories, I really don't like fake sweeteners)

I take it black. "The navy way," as my mom always says.

Sorry, that should be SPLENDA-pendent. Can't type today. Need more coffee...

Another Spenda-pendent checking in. Not a big fan of Nutrasweet and stevia gives me migraines.
