While low in carb grams (based on a little goes a long 'weigh'). Cream packs a big punch when it comes to calorie and fat content.

Liquid Coffee Creamers
For Coffee Lovers who enjoy a lot of cream in their coffee the carb grams, fat grams and calories can really add up to substantial caloric intake.
Many liquid creams contain 35-50 calories per serving - about 1 Tablespoon. At 40 calories per serving, 4 cups of coffee adds up to 160 calories. Add sugar and the calorie count increases.
If you are a Coffee Lover who enjoys cream with your coffee as well as sugar try adding a little less sugar for starters as the creamers tend to be fairly sweet.
Sugar is like a drug; the more we have the more we crave. Decreasing intake decreases desire (take note that this does not apply to chocolate.....).
You may find that less is more as you begin to savor the flavor of the coffee itself.
After reducing sugar content, work on adding the recommended serving of creamer to your coffee rather than the whole bottle as tends to be the process where creamer commercials are concerned.
The pay off is a reward on the weight scales with a smaller reading. And sometimes, smaller is best.
