The 5 Highest and Lowest Calorie Starbucks Drinks

You may not realize it, but you can drink a crap-ton of calories (Especially at Starbucks!) in any given day fairly easily. Which spells disaster for your weight loss goals.

So in order to help you out, I’ve compiled a list of the top 5 highest (stay away!) and lowest (order these instead!) drinks that you can get.

All of these are the “Tall” size- the smallest one, so if you get a larger cup, it’s going to be even more calories. The “Best Drinks” do not have whipped cream, while all of the “Worst Drinks” do have whipped cream.

So there you go, I hope this helps you guys out…now here’s my opinion on all of this.

If you’re serious about losing weight, your ass shouldn’t be in Starbucks to begin with. Even most of the low calorie drinks have a lot of sugar in it, which just spikes your blood sugar (not good).
If you need caffeine, just brew your own coffee, or use instant coffee for the kick of energy. Most people don’t have the willpower to order the low calorie stuff when the chocolatey goodness of the other drinks is staring them in the face.
I personally hate coffee so I don’t have this problem, but that’s just my opinion on it.
Stay healthy,
-Nick
