    I have a Dolce Gusto coffee machine at home and since the day I bought it up until the day I started LL I used to have 1 cappucino a day!

    I do not really drink regular coffee other than in my nilla shakes.

    Anyway! I have just found out they have started making skinn latte pods and skinny cappucino pods at 49 cals a cup and I am so bloody excited I cannot tell you!

    What I need to work out is at what point of RTM I can introduce them!?

    Any info gratefully received!

    Hey Hun

    Not sure what the pods contain, but if it is palm oil based stay well away!! I had a Latte in my first week, and it was great, but from a Starbucks so I knew the exact calories I was taking in, and realistically a cappucino is far lower cal wise. See if you cand find out the ingredients in the little packs??

    of the Dolce Gusto Krups pods I prefer the cappucino but I have not yet tried their skinny latte or skinny cappucino as they have come out since I have been on LL! I only found out today and rather excited about it!

    Well you can have skimmed milk from very early on, so I treated myself on about day 5 to a skinny latte, because I had missed them so. I still have at least 1 a week now a cappucino because it is lower cal, as a treat and really enjoy them. When I am over week 12 I might up the stakes to latte again - a skinny starbucks grande adds about 163 cals so it is quite high, whereas a cappucino is only 80 odd cals.

    God I sound obsessed!

    Nooo I know what you mean! I can't wait to have my skinny cappucino!!

    49 cals a cup from the Dolce Gusto and I only ever allowed myself to have one a day!

    Oh I'm so jealous. Since doing LL and then RTM I found out I have a problem with milk, it gives me headaches as soon as I introduced it I noticed after being headache free for all the time in foundation. So cut it out again and headaches went, even a tiny amount in tea does it. I tried soya milk but that was worse. So I'm stuck with black americano these days....:(

    Hope you enjoy Kat when the time comes....:)

    I fail to see the point of adding fully skimmed milk to anything!! There's more guts in my paint water after I've cleaned my brushes.

    But then I have been a black coffee drinker for years and years.:D

    Morticia, if you're unhappy with your black coffee, do shop around. Instants like Nescafe are made specifically to add milk too so the flavour can be dire. I used to be a huge espresso drinker until it became too much but I still like a coffee with a decent amount of flavour, like Dowe Egberts Pure Indulgence. It's a very personal thing, like having coloured water, sorry skimmed milk, in it.:D:D:D

    I've never liked coffee of any kind - don't suppose a Starbucks skinny hot chocolate is on the RTM allowed list ;)

  19. Blonde Logic

    Blonde Logic Yes. You can.

    Ya know what FT< I used to think that about nonfat milk too, bus since abstainance, I love it. That break did me good, and I love my skinny coffees! TOo much I do!! :D
