Chocolate syrup - wwyd?

Recommended Posts

I drink two HUGE cups of coffee in the morning. I count them as 2.5 points each. I put in 2% milk & chocolate syrup.

 

Reduced sugar chocolate syrup is 50 cal vs 70 cal regular.

 

Its also 25% more expensive.

 

Do I switch?

You'd barely save 1 pt. It's not worth it to me to pay more.

I have tried the fake chocolate syrup. It is not worth the difference in flavor, and it is definitely not worth the difference in price.

 

You can use just a bit less of the regular, if you must, to shave the calories.

Hershey's Regular Chocolate is 100 calories for 2 tbsp's.

 

Their Sugar free Chocolate Syrup is only 15 calories for 2 tbsp's

 

that's a big difference in points for me and I like the Sugar free enough to use it.

That's what I was going to say: unsweetened cocoa powder is Core. Is it like 15 calories for a tablespoon?...

 

Use a little "frother" to blend it in in seconds. (I do that with my homemade Core cocoa.)

 

For the sweet part, you could use Splenda or DaVinci Chocolate syrup (0-points). It's a liquid, not a thick syrup...but it would work. :salut:bcb_smile


May you be happy. May you be well. May you be free from suffering.

I know 20 calories at a time doesn't seem like much but think about this. Our leader said 1000 calories = 1 lb gained or lost depending if you are eating or burnign those calories ;)

 

So 20 cal x 7 days = 140 calories a week

140 cal x 52 weeks = 7280 calories!

 

So if you made the switch you should lose 7 lbs in one year just by doing that. Seems worth it to me! Oh wait, just reread that so if its 2 servings of the syrup then thats 14 lbs! DEFINATLEY worth it to switch.

 

Ok off my soap box now.

 

Haha

A pound is roughly 3500 calories, not 1000.

Absolutely, it's still a good point. After all, would you rather lose 2 pounds effortlessly over the course of a year or not? I fall on the side that wants to lose them. ;-)
