I'm not certain as I'm not an expert but I think you'd be better off sticking with the cream. It's hard to wrap your brain around it sometimes but fat is your friend.

I always can't help but wonder what's in artificial creamers...

Original Coffee Mate is made with corn syrup solids and contains 2 carbs per Tablespoon. Cldwv is correct, you would be better off sticking with heavy cream if you are doing Atkins:)

Hello and :welcome: :) I agree with all above... Food is always better when its closer to the real thing than chemicals! :) besides.. Cream is a treat!!! oh yeah... Try and find some sugar free extracts for flavoring! :)

Forgot to ask. What is the limit per day for the heavy cream, is it 3 tablespoons?
I'm a coffee drinker so I will be using it in the morning with my coffee but want to make sure I have the correct limit per day.
I will make a point to find my book during the week. thank you again for all of your help
