Coffee has many great benefits that I rarely tell people to stay away from it. Not only does is have nutrients that our bodies can use, but it can also aid in burning fat AND reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes. If you’d like to see more benefits of coffee, check out this article by authority nutrition. When it comes to coffee, most people’s go-to place is Starbucks.
Now I’m sorry if I’m about to ruin your day, but truth is truth people. I’ve seen too many hard-working people lose their fitness edge to a venti caramel macchiato, [ugh] so here’s some truth nuggets. Are you ready for this?
These are the 5 Worst Drinks You Can Order at Starbucks
Tall Peppermint Mocha
Nothing says Happy Merry Holiday time like a Peppermint Mocha right? Well at 320 calories for a tall (small for you non-SBUX goers) it’s a hefty price to pay for a small piece of winter wonderland.
Tall White Chocolate Mocha
Grande Mocha Frappuccino
Tall Vanilla Frappuccino
Grande Green Tea Soy Latte
I asked the baristas what size they normally sell in this drink, and all 4 of them immediately responded “VENTI!” I decided to be nice and give you the stats on the grande. This bad boy that sounds really healthy actually weighs in at 310 calories. Yup, just because it sounds healthy doesn’t mean it is…
SO, WHAT ARE SOME BETTER OPTIONS?!?
Tall Skinny Nonfat Vanilla Latte
Skinny Caramel Macchiato
Iced Black Tea Lemonade
Caramel Frappuccino Light Blended Coffee
If you must have the coveted ice-cold Frap on a hot afternoon, here’s a good option. Their light blended coffee Frappuccino is a little safer than the full fledge alternative.
