    Well I have about 8 cups a day and put it in vannilla shakes it's gorgeous and I've lost 3st 1lb in 10 weeks so I would say it doesn't affect your loss :p

    I've drunk black coffee all the way through. I don't like tea.
    I also love the coffee with vanilla and a bit of coffe in the hot chocolate shake is yummy too with a couple of sweeteners.
    Mocha Choca. lovely.
    I'm sure having the coffee has not slowed down my weight loss.
    You can't give up everything!

    I add crushed ice to mine and blend a second time, makes it nice and thick, sooooooo yummy I have one every day lol, will be interesting to see if changing to de-caf after my next wi makes a difference though.

    I drink about 4/6 cups daily with some choc shake, it's lovely. You mention another thread on coffee, do you have a link as I often wonder if I should use de-caf instead!!

    I try and drink half of mine as decaf as I was having trouble sleeping.

    There was stuff on the news recently that 7 cups or more a today can make you hallucinate, although the research suggests that it may be that people who have a tendency to hallucinate drink more coffee because they are anxious :p

    I usually just add a tsp of dried coffee to the shake and then mix with water as usual.

    I usually mix 1 tsp coffee with 3 tsp choc shake + 3 sweetners into a paste, stir in hot water then give it a blast with blender! That way I can have 4 cups choc/coffee from 1 shake.
