You will have to find something else to drink small amount of milk is ok but has 11 grams of sugar for 8oz. You can try crystal lite it comes in many flavors. Water is another source. If you don't control your sugar it will control you and you will become a diabetic.

Unfortunately, you are going to have to experiment and find other things you like to drink. I don't recommend diet sodas because they can also effect blood sugar levels in some people because they mess with your adrenal glands causing your body to think it's getting real sugar.

Some of the things I drink:
water with lemon
iced tea w/no sugar
iced green tea w/stevia or plain
coffee with a little cream (real cream cause nondairy cream usually has added sugars)
