Vanilla almond milk, unsweetened.
When we first started using this we added a little Splenda. Now we don’t. Took just a few weeks to transition to almond milk from Calorie Countdown.
We use it for coffee, recipes, and just drink it by the glass. Very low calorie, low carb, no sugar, Point out to her that it has 40 cals per serving instead of 90 like skim milk. Also, about 2 carbs per cup (1g fiber) vs skim milk’s 13g (12 from sugar).
The only drawback to almond milk is that it’s not a protein source. Fine with me since I’d prefer get my protein from meat, eggs, and Metabolic Drive. [/quote]
Thanks for the suggestion. I definitley think unsweetened almond milk with splenda has a chance.
It’s all mental with my wife. She couldn’t care less about protein content in milk. Her family always drinks milk for dinner. She grew up with it. And she’s big on family, maybe drinking it reminds her of her family. I don’t really know. Forever, she has been in denial that it could be a negative toward her weight loss.
Now, she knows how detrimental it is, but for whatever reason, doesn’t care. And she’s been doing great with all other aspects of her diet.
I recently suggested to her that we follow the 100 carb diet that you recently wrote. But she shot it down immediatley, because I think she knew with 40-50 daily carbs already dedicated to milk, there was no way she could follow it.
I am definitley going to buy some unsweetened almond milk tonight, add some splenda, and hopefully recommend it to her.
