The old cliche is true. Once you go black, you never go back.
I’ve been a cream and sugar guy since I started drinking coffee fifteen years ago. But when I was diagnosed with hypertension back in April, I began looking for simple ways to cut down my calorie intake. I was shocked to learn that with the amount of coffee I drink in a typical day, I was taking in about 300 calories in cream and sugar alone!
So I made the switch to black. At a measly two calories per cup it seemed like a no-brainer.
It was difficult for the first couple of cups. But now that I’ve been on the hard stuff for a few months I can’t even think of putting cream or sugar in my coffee without triggering my gag reflex.
Has anyone else out there made the switch to black?
