    Yep, black coffee = very little calories. 8)

    My weight gain was accomplished the old fashioned way....too much food and too little exercise. :( No foo-foo coffee for me.

    Probably :blink

    Before I got told by the doctor to stop going to the gym I used to go regularly and I always saw people doing weights and they were doing them wrongly. So they were destroying their muscles instead of building them.

    6 days a week is a bit ott imo you should be having atleast 3 days off so your muscles get time to relax.

    venti skinny latte with fat-free vanilla.

    Vanilla sweetens it so I don't add sugar.

    Coffee rocks, and I ain't no biffer.

    (although Philpotts sandwiches are wonderful :oops:)

    Splenda = 0 calories. Not sure how much is in the creamer... I suspect not much.

    Josh and I just had a late breakfast at Cracker Barrel. It was huge. It certainly didn't help the calorie situation ANY. :D

    Actually, it's not just the calories over all but a lot of those sweeteners have nasty ol' chemicals in them that really don't do the body good. The amount of sugar you'd put in to sweeten the coffee would likely be the better way to go in the long run.

    I mostly do a good CV workout most days & situps etc.
    Weights are mostly done with the training weights at home.
    And mostly for toning.:)

    Splenda is chlorinated sucrose, stable under heat. As a degreed chemist, I can say that it's a heck of a lot better than stuff like aspartame/NutriSweet.
