7 Worst Things to Order at Coffee Shops for Your Weight ...


I adore visiting coffee shops, as I’m sure you do, but I’m also sure I avoid the worst things to order at coffee shops so I don’t get myself in trouble!

Many coffee shop drinks contain well over 500 calories, even if you don’t order the largest size available.

Fun toppings like syrup, whipped cream, or sauces also increase the calorie count.

Don’t fall prey to racking up a day’s worth of calories by choosing the worst things to order at coffee shops.

I think you’ll find that with all the other healthy options out there, you have plenty of other items to choose from that you can still enjoy, and that won’t ruin your waistline at the same time.

1. The Mocha Frappe

The Mocha Frappe

Let’s start with one of my favorite things, but one of the worst things to order at coffee shops of all.

I’m such a stickler for mocha flavors, but regular mocha frappes contain well over, or close to, 40 grams of sugar- in a small!

Your best best is to stick with a “Skinny” mocha at Starbucks or other coffee shops, which is made with sugar-free mocha syrup.

Sure, it has artificial sweeteners, but if you’re dying for a mocha, it’s pretty good, and consider it a splurge for only 11 grams of sugar from the milk in the drink.

2. Bran Muffins

Bran Muffins

Those bran muffins at coffee shops not only look healthy, but look pretty tasty too.

But let me warn you, they’re anything but healthy.

Most all are made with oils, eggs, and lots of sugar, plus most have refined flour.

This can cause the muffins to contain well up to 350 calories in just one muffin, or possibly more.

Your best bet is to order a plain oatmeal, and have them sprinkle on some cinnamon, add a splash of skim milk, add in some stevia if you want, and order some fruit on the side.

Oh, and if you're wondering about other muffin options, the blueberry and banana nut, pumpkin spice, and all other varieties are just as unhealthy as those supposedly healthy bran muffins too.2
