They make Sugar free creamer that is only 1 carb per serving. . if you really have to have some, I would consider trying that. .

I low carbed for six months before I went to the Doc only to find out I did have thyroid problems. I suggest going either way to get your blood sugar, thyroid, cholesterol levels checked. Thryoid issues are a more common problem then most people realize. Hey. .for questions, you may want to try the May thread of stillmans. .A lot of good people on there willing to answer a lot of questions. . Good luck

Hi Lita, I too cant drink coffee black, and cant give up coffee
non-diary creamer sounds like a good alternative

hi Lita's Way,
I just crossed that bridge today. I decided to have a little half and half. I'm gonna check my weight once a week and see what I need to tweek to keep losing.

I know this thread is really old, but...

Have you heard of Bee's Egg Drink? It's 2 eggs blended with 1T butter, 1T coconut oil, and stevia & cinnamon to taste mixed with hot water. I've made it a couple of times with hot coffee instead of hot water, and it was delicious. Now that I'm getting ready to start Stillman's, I was thinking about drinking it sans butter/oil. In fact, I'm probably going to have 2 eggs blended into my coffee tomorrow for breakfast tomorrow, so I'll report back and let everyone know the verdict.

Milo, how did the egg drink sans butter work out?

Also, do you use a blender? Are the eggs raw (I assume?)?

milo_juniper 01-19-2011 08:35 AM

Emky, it's not as tasty without the extra fat, but it's still good! The trick is to blend the eggs really well first (I use a Magic Bullet), and then add the coffee and blend.

Thank you! Hmm... I always make a meringue fluff for dessert out of raw egg whites, but I never considered a shake-like beverage. Is it best at room temp or cold?

milo_juniper 01-19-2011 09:28 PM

I've been drinking it warm because I make it with hot coffee.
