No Coffee No Workee: 8 Coffee-Calorie Saving Tips

coffeeI flipped out over this tank! It’s the perfect Christmas gift for your favorite coffee loving friend! Or, if you are like me, and a major coffee lover, you can just buy it for yourself! Or maybe you are also like me and, when you go Christmas shopping, you say “One for you, One for ME!” (I know, I’m awful!! They are too cute to resist!!)

I know I just blogged about my other tank I just got that said “I don’t sweat, I sparkle” and you might be thinking I’m now on Ruffles with Love’s payroll, but I’m not. I just think there stuff is so stinkin’ cute – AND, I know how hard it is to buy for some people so I figured you’d enjoy fun fitness gift ideas!

If you are a coffee lover, here are some tips to save extra calories so you can enjoy your cup of Joe without it expanding your waistline.

8 Ways to Save Coffee Calories:

1. Use flavored coffee. Trade high-calorie flavored syrups and creamers for delicious flavored gourmet coffee.

2. Cut the cream. If you can’t do without cream, cut it with skim or whole milk to save calories.

3. Lighten Up. It’s difficult for a person who likes a little coffee with their cream, to become a person who drinks coffee black. However, if you slowly wean yourself of heavy creamer, your taste buds will have time to adjust.

4. Make it mild. Stronger coffees require more cream to soften the intensity of the bitter flavor. If you go a little more mild, you may be able to go mild on your creamer too.

5. Pick only one – coffee or coffee cake. It’s hard to pass up the muffins and coffee cakes when you order your starbucks, but the reality is – that coffee you are ordering IS your treat. Don’t double your mistake by ordering two high-calorie treats.

6. Go small. Many times we order a large coffee just because it’s only a few cents more. Then we find ourselves gulping down the last few cold sips just because we don’t want to waste what’s left. Order small coffees for a small waistline.

7. Skip it. I don’t know about you, but meeting a friend at a coffee shop is the go-to thing to do. Half the time I really don’t even want a coffee. Yet, you bet your socks I’ll order one – just because. The last time I was tempted, I ended up ordering an unsweetened tea instead. It was refreshing and yummy and I didn’t leave with regret and the need to do 3 extra miles of cardio to erase one drink.

8. Limit the high-calorie treats to once a week. Just because it has coffee in it, doesn’t mean you should have it every day like your daily morning coffee. Treat fancy frappuccinos as if it’s actually a treat. Fancy coffees can have as much calories in an ice cream – and if you are dieting, you shouldn’t have ice cream every day either.

  1. LOVE Flavored Coffee! I once had the most magical Strawberry Shortcake Coffee… Mmmmmm I don’t think the company I purchased it from is in business any longer but I will forever remember that delicious 16 oz ground bag of coffee!

  2. I’m confused. Splenda has calories? I usually use Stevia but if I’m in a bind and there is nothing else to put in my tea when I’m out, I use splenda. Now I may have to rethink this. .

  3. Can HGH Products Raise Lean Body Mass

    HGH, human growth hormone will be the hormone inn the human body accountable for maintainin itss health and integrity
    together with improving lean body mass. The medica name ffor this
    hormone is somatotropin. Manyy individuals appear to misunderstand the character of HGH inside the human
    anatomy and do noot grasp just whatt this hormine does.

    Human growth hormone is capable of exciting the growth of lean muscle mass,
    repairs to destroyed cells, and substitution of dead ones.
    As time passes wwe normally start to produce less
    of it over a daily schedule. At tthe age of twenty the common generation degree of
    somatotropin while in the body will waver between four hundre and five hundred micrograms.
    This is based on activity-level and in some casees gender.
    This creation can diminish to approximately half that amount at age forty.
    Nonetheless, from the period this person reaches agge eighty they
    will generate around twenty-five micrograms on the average.
    Whuch means that the average person can create twenty times less HGH around the average at age eighty while they can aat age twenty.

    Products for HGH aren’t truly supplying your body
    more human growth hormones. These products give essential amino-acids that the anterior pituitary glands
    utilizes to make HGH. That doesn’t indicate they are hoaxes
    or nugatory. They are doing work, and work nicely with the aim
    of aiding inside the boost of lean body mass.
    best protein product ffor muscle growth
    Nonetheless, it should be noted that there’s an odd concept that employing HGH supplements will turn an average person into a super-human muscle building machine.

    This is simply not true. A superb, solid, HGH
    complement will work properly for some individuals and be
    virtually useless for others. There are two key aspects that determine how well an effective supplement will continue to work for
    you personally. These facets are age and task.

    An eighty year old man or woman that operates out everyday will find that a good supplement will
    support them out to an amazing, virtually staggeringly
    powerful, degree. A twenty-year old person that sits around eating potato chips and
    playing game titles all evening can seldom notice any change at all.
    In most honesty a twenty-year aged power-lifter will not be likely observe that much
    difference either. The truth in this issue is that HGH supplements might help increase lean
    body mass but only in persons that need the boost.
    A highly active person presently provides the maximum amount of HGH the
    body can use naturally anyway. The rest is
    misused. For him or her they would be better served by
    a easy multivitamin. To power the body to build dramatically greater amounts of
    lean muscle mass using HGH in a newer age will demand the utilization
    of injections. This is a usually illegal plan of action without medical causes.
