IP dieters are allowed 1 oz of skim milk in their coffee, per protocol. There are 13 carbs in 8 oz of skim milk (so a little over 1 carb per oz), zero fat. Half and half has 1 carb per 2 Tablespoons and 3 grams of fat. I believe the carbs are similar enough. Half and half should not kick you out of ketosis. It just has more fat and more calories. IP is low fat, low carb, and low calorie. It's my opinion that is why skim milk is allowed and not half and half.
