Be Smart at the Coffee Shop

Clara Rienhoff  

 

Even the most yummy drinks can be loaded with unnecessary carbs and sugars that can easily sneak onto your waistline and sabotage your progress! Here are a few tips for ordering smart:

 

1.) Go for Skim over Whole or 2%

2.)Ask for your specialty drinks "Sugar Free"

3.) Skip the whip

4.) Choose brewed coffee over specialty espresso drinks (Brewed coffee has virtually zero calories. Add some sugar free syrup and a splash of cream? And you have your own low-cal 'specialty' drink.)

5.) Watch the Frapps (Most have the same calorie count & content as a McDonald's milkshake!)

6.) Ask for your iced coffees black with NO SYRUP. Majority of shops add simply syrup (aka pure cane sugar) to iced coffees.
