    Is it really that bad to have milk with tea and coffee? I can't see the calories being an issue and I only ever use skimmed milk

    Any advice?

    You can, but strictly speaking you shouldn't. There is 5g of carbs in 100ml of milk, depending on the person it could kick you outta keto. Nothing to do with calories. If you are willing to risk not being in keto then go for it. I have 100 ml or less of milk a day and I've not fallen out of keto, but thats not to say everyone else is the same

    I have had milk in morning tea from day one. I gave up coffee - it made me hungry. I think a splash of skimmed milk doesn't do any harm, but if you follow the rules to the letter the answer is no.

    Cheers, I had milk in my tea on Cambridge so I might give it a try and keep a check on my ketosis over the next couple of days.

    Thanks for the advice, I will update the thread if I fall out of ketosis

    As a matter of interest 100ml of semi is 5g carbs, and fully skimmed is 4.9g carbs x

    If you drink a lot of tea and coffee and/or are carb sensitive you might want to try unsweetened soya milk instead of cow's milk. Carbs are much lower (0.2-0.4g per 100ml) so I guess it's probably less likely to knock you out of K :)

    However, I too have been having a splash of semi-skimmed milk in my tea and it hasn't affected my K yet. Everyone's different I guess - you just need to figure out what works for you :)

    Yep i'm with ya kelly. Couldn't do it without at least 1 cup of tea. I limit myself to 100ml (which is 5g carbs). I measured it out when I made my tea, and I used 25ml in a cup. Just enough to colour it but not making it really milky. So I have up to 4 cups a day. And the water in your tea counts towards your water intake xx

    I know, tea is fabulous heh :D

    I would say everyone gets away with a different amount of carbs, I just have to restrict myself or else I'll get carried away and be like chain-tea-drinking :p

    I've opened a packet of vanilla shake and using a tsp of it in my coffee, touch sweeter than my normal coffee but much more palatable than black!
