starbucks question



Recommended Posts

I'm meeting someone there tomorrow and I don't know if there's anything I can drink. 5 wks out, allowed solids now. Obviously I don't want sugar drinks but don't know what other options I might have. Any suggestions for this one visit besides Water? Decaf green tea? I don't know what that tastes like. I.miss coffee though....... maybe just a reg decaf coffee?

A lime refresher - has caffeine though, but really yummy. unsweetened awake tea misto, any of the steeped herbal teas.

Check with your doctor. My doctor said no caffeine for minimum 3 months. But why not just get some bottled Water? You have to drink it anyway and no point sliding into bad habits once again (my all time fav was the chai tea latte...now a dream for a LONG time, if ever). But the newer skinnier me that will be coming is worth the sacrifice!

Lime refresher is super yummy but has caffeine - awake tea misto is caffeinated or any of the herbal iced teas. You can order anything sugar free or non sweetened. Good luck

Skinny cinnamon dolce steamer- no fat, no sugar, and all good- best drink ever.

That's why I'm getting Decaf. I don't want caffeine. And I don't want Water. That's all I've been drinking and I want something different this one time.

Erp, is the skinny cinnamon dolce steamer decaf or can I ask for it to be decaf?

Venti Iced Passion Tea for me! Takes a long time to drink, no caffeine and counts towards my Water - AND is super flavorful. Tell them no Syrup (sweetener) or to add a packet of your choice. I bring my own stevia usually, or ask for Equal if i forget.

A " steamer " is just hot steamed milk with your choice of flavoring, , like mint, cinnamon, etc. Really good ! You can choose what kind of milk ( 2%, skim etc) and you get your Calcium in there too. I love them when I want someting with no caffeine, but still hot and yummy.

Many people are sensitive to artificial sweeteners so look out for the "skinny" syrups if you're in that category -- don't want to get set off. I like a Decaf Cappuccino -- the foamed milk is festive and yummy and I feel like I'm getting a real treat. I can really linger over it, too. Pink Dahlia, I'm going to try the steamer -- fun!

I don't blame you for going to Starbucks and not wanting to get Water. You can get water anytime and I'm sure water there will cost as much as a passion tea anyway.

Order Decaf coffee hot or over ice. Add a sugar free flavor like: sf mocha, sf hazelnut, or sf cinnamon dolce. Add a packet of stevia, equal, or sweet n low if you are allowed to add the sweetener.

Thanks everyone! :-)

They have the fake sugar there, right? Or should I bring my own?

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
