No, I'm not trading the honey for the milk. I'm still getting in my dairy from the almond milk I drink; it's just fewer calories per 8 oz cup serving than the non-fat milk most people drink on Jenny. It has twice as much calcium but only 30 calories a cup instead of the 90 calories in a cup of non-fat milk. So, I was just trying to justify adding the 60 calories from the teaspoon of honey to my diet.

And I'm not sure where you're going with the carbs. Honey is practically all carbs, no fat and trace protein, and unsweetened almond milk has only <1 grams of carbs, but JC in not a low-carb diet either.

It's just a mystery as to why this combo is working, but I do think you're right in not taking it daily. The body gets used to things quickly and stops working as efficiently.

Lost my first 25 pounds on my own and the rest (so far) with Jenny Craig

If you hate starting over...STOP giving up!!!
