Stop drinking your calories.
Seriously, wouldn’t you rather eat?
Again, I do not count calories but really, your Starbucks Frappuccino, or Sweetened Iced Tea or even your Strawberry Coolatta from Dunkin Donuts ?? Not doing you any favors.
Here’s the deal.
Drinking your calories does not bring satiety that food does.
Period. End of story.
It just welcomes unnecessary calories or sugars into your body.
Average can of soda has 150 calories. Is it worth it?
Average soft serve cone from a fast food restaurant is about 170 calories. Pick your poison. I’d rather the ice cream myself.
Are you a Starbucks frozen-mocha-latte-frappa-double-whip-extra-syrup kinda girl?
You see this Iced Mocha? A Starbucks favorite. 320 calories. Fill you up for maybe 15 minutes.
See this awesome Roasted Vegetable Panini from Starbucks? 350 calories. And this stuff will stay with you and actually has some health components, unlike the above.
You say, “but I want a sweet treat, not a dang veggie panini…”
Fine. But still: For the same amount of calories as the Mocha, you can get this Starbucks Cheesecake Brownie. 300 calories for this dessert and this will fill you up more than that drink.
Save your sugar for the stuff that is worth it.
