half and half or milk?

I cant freakin tell how many tablespoons I am adding to my coffee at starbucks etc... I figure half and half is worse because although you need less to get the flavor its probably more than 2 tblspoons( 40 cals), plus its higher in fat. But when using skim milk i add more. I usually opt for half and half but I have a feeling thats not the right choice? especially since i'll have coffee or tea with half and half added a few times a day. Should I switch to milk?

I think that coffee with milk, or even worse - skim milk, tastes and looks awful. I usually drink my coffee with half and half, but if that is not available or I've used my calorie allotment for the day, I've learned to enjoy black coffee.

You could always bring a tablespoon with you if it's that important, or as above, learn to go without. But it's also personal preference... some people don't mind skin milk in their coffee.

I always drink coffee with skim milk because it's the only thing I keep in the house! I like it! They also make fat free half in half that you can buy in the stores, which does make the coffee taste richer than skim milk.

As for what to do at Starbucks, I would choose the extra calories in skim milk over than the fat grams in half in half. I try to limit my fat intake to 20-25% of my total calories, and it's amazing at how quickly they add up.

My sister, who drinks a LOT of coffee, switched from half-and-half to milk and cut the sugar she was adding in half, and lost weight. I don't know how much weight but she wasn't even exercising and you could see the difference in her weight (over the course of a couple months).

hey, no rocket science here

Why don't you just bring a Starbuck's coffee cup home? Then fill w/ water to the point it's normally filled to. Then add more water 1 T at a time until it's as high as it usually is with milk. Then you will know!

Personally, I'm a drinker of skim milk in coffee. it has a LOT fewer calories than half-and-half.

None of us got fat from putting Half and Half in our coffee

1:49...I'd disagree. As a single bad habit, you'd be right, but as a sign that someone treasures her saturated fats, the outlook is dimmer. First, look at the size of a cup of coffee these days -- most mugs hold 12-14 oz. instead of the typical 8oz serving size, and the smallest Starbucks cup is 12 oz., I believe. I reckon that makes the amount of half-and-half tot up 60 calories a cup on the principle that 50% more coffee requires 50% more of whatever you put in it. Most people I know have 2 cups a day minimum, so now you're looking at 120 calories worth of the tasty fatty stuff.

If 10:30am's sister cut the sugar in half and chose milk over half-n-half and had a 2-cups-a-day habit, that's about 100 calories a day she saved. It's one of those relatively painless changes that can really add up.

I've also discovered nonfat half&half. It's not as great as the real thing but it's not as bad as skim milk!

milk is soooooooo much better for you than half and half. If you can and still like the taste, I would switch. Now!

probable alternative to half and half taste...

Once you get hooked up with Coffee its not easy to break the habit . On top of it, coffee with Half and Half still makes it worse(i.e. habit/addiction to loose). Even if some one says its bad for you etc, you cannot stop.
At home we use two percent milk with coffee froth maker(We can get in IKEA for 3$(Batteries get used faster) or Bed bath and beyond for 19$(Never used)) makes the coffee taste a lot more better.

I put about 1/4 cup of cream- not coffee cream. but 33% cream- in my xl coffee. I've only got 20lbs to lose, have coffee maybe twice a week, and use xylitol, not sugar.

9:05 1/2& 1/2 vs milk

There is non fat half & half (Land OLakes) and if you use 2TBLS it's only 2g sugar, but no cholestrol and no fats of any kind....i'ts a thought. I try and avoid it because of the sugar, but is it something I would use.

Half & Half

I say use half and half, I fill my cup about 1/3 of the way with skim milk if I'm using that, and I only use about 1-2 TBSP of half and half to get the same creaminess. It tastes better and I really think it's a better choice, calorie-wise. As far as fat content-- well hey-- sometimes you do need SOME fat to help you feel full.
Good luck deciding! :)

There was a fan walking the Ohio State concourse wearing a
  • Wholesale Jerseys , and when approached about why he bought a fake jersey he became offended because he was unaware it was fraudulent.That fan bought the jersey on Amazon.com, so he felt it was a legitimate place to purchase such a
  • San Diego Chargers
  • .Most fans are like O'Hara, though. They know that the NCAA restricts Ohio State from authorizing a jersey with a current player's name on it, but they buy them from online retailers.The most popular one is AliExpress.com, the international version of Amazon. It's an aggregator of countless independent retailers that will send consumers in the United States the product directly. It usually takes three weeks, but the product comes.

    But sometimes those products are sold second-handedly on places like EBay or Amazon
  • San Francisco 49ers
  • , which is how unsuspecting consumers unaware of what's legitimate end up buying them."The people I've talked to, the majority of people know they're fake and don't care," Van Brimmer said. "That's distressing."

    Impact on Ohio State

    Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith told cleveland.com that a very small portion of the program's revenue on apparel comes from
  • Seattle Seahawks
  • sales. It may be smaller than he thought off hand.
  • St.Louis Rams
  • sales accounted for less than one percent of Ohio State's overall apparel business the last fiscal year. That figure is down from the six-year average of 1.51 percent. Jersey sales peaked in 2011 and declined every year since until last season
  • Stitched NFL Patch
  • , but last season included special national championship product.

    During the last fiscal year -- July of 2014 to June of 2015 -- Ohio State made $1.6 million on
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  • , which was 0.7 percent of total apparel sales that totaled $221 million. Sales of T-Shirts, sweaters, hats, shorts, pants and things like that make up the majority. The number of jerseys may seem overwhelming at a game, but in the grand scheme of apparel, they're not the top thing purchased.But that doesn't mean the the mass counterfeit sales of
  • Tennessee Titans
  • isn't a concern for Ohio State."There's a quality issue. Where was it made? How was the worker treated? There's a lot of issues involved," Van Brimmer said. "Counterfeiting is a crime."And Ohio State is having a really hard time of shutting it down. In the old days, counterfeit jerseys were made in mass in places like China and brought through a port of
  • Washington Redskins
  • into the United States in a place like New Orleans. Many times, those counterfeits were intercepted by U.S. customs agents and they never saw the secondary market.

    Now those manufacturers are making and shipping those counterfeits directly to the consumer, so it's much harder for Ohio State to track and shut down. Ohio State tries to shut down every fraudulent manufacture it comes across -- places like AliExpress have fraud departments -- but most times those manufacturers pop back up under different names almost immediately.Ohio State sales are
  • NBA Shop
  • , though. It's just hard not to notice when you go to a football game that those fakes are floating around everywhere you look, whether the fan knows it or not."From a total sales perspective, we've seen nothing but increases this year," Van Brimmer said. "It's hard to say what the impact is because things are good
  • NHL Shop
  • . If things were in the toilet we could tell you something's going on and things are going badly."But the problem with these kind of goods is that we can't track them and we don't know how much we're losing or how many of the illegal goods are actually in the market place."

    Kisha, along with client services director Lisa Leone and production manager Cathi Christopher Wholesale Jerseys 2016 , were confined to a 10-by-10-foot room backstage at the Auditorium Theatre, working with two heat-press machines and thousands of names on clear film in folders
  • Dallas Cowboys Jersey
  • , organized by team.

    "Even though we pretty much knew who was going to go in the first round, we still made all the names
  • Detroit Lions Jersey
  • , just to be sure, because there always seems to be some anomaly every year," Kisha said.The trio typically make two jerseys for each player: One to hold on stage and another that's destined to be cut into pieces for trading cards
  • Houston Texans Jersey
  • .They bring six jerseys for every team — all with the No. 1
  • Oakland Raiders Jersey
  • on the back — to account for a team having an unlikely three first-round picks.

    Until 2014, they brought only four jerseys per team but in 2013, the Minnesota Vikings traded up and had three first-round draft picks, which meant six jerseys. When the Vikings made their move
  • Jacksonville Jaguars Jersey
  • , Stahls' grabbed an extra jersey from a mannequin in New York City's Radio City Music Hall, where the draft was held.The group gets early word of draft picks from an NFL representative as soon as the pick is submitted by the team
  • Miami Dolphins Jersey
  • . Then the two-minute drill begins: Leone grabs the correct name from a box — this year the box contained 1,600 names
  • Minnesota Vikings Jersey
  • and team possibilities — and hands it off to be pressed by Kisha and Christopher, in a play they've run repeatedly.

    Names are only prepared for first-round prospects who have confirmed they will attend the event
  • New Orleans Saints Jersey
  • . Thursday night, 25 athletes attended.Stahls' gets the list of confirmed attendees about two weeks in advance.Each team has its own unique font NFL , which means 32 versions of every name.The company spends at least six weeks preparing for the event.

    Despite the pressure
  • New York Giants Jersey
  • , the company considered Thursday just another day on the job. Friday, the Stahls' team was on-site at the NFL Shop in Draft Town as part of a larger team that produces on-demand personalized apparel for fans
  • New York Jets Jersey
  • ."This year went really great," Kisha said. "You're always nervous though, you know? You've still got butterflies. And (you're) happy when it's done."
