Starbucks Calories Infographic

If You're Starbucks-Obsessed, but Watching Your Calories, You Need to See This Infographic

For your caffeine needs, Starbucks always has your back, but grabbing a Starbucks or two doesn't always mean the same thing. This infographic posted by Graeme Tomlinson, known on Instagram by his 109K followers as thefitnesschef_, is an eye-opening visual to bring awareness to the calorie counts of your coffee order.

You could blissfully be sipping down an Iced White Chocolate Mocha in the morning, and a Cinnamon Roll Frappuccino in the afternoon, and never realise that it's adding almost 800 calories to your daily total!

We're not saying you shouldn't enjoy a 410-calorie Ultra Caramel Frappuccino every once in a while, but Graeme points out that "if you regularly go out for a 'coffee', but consume a Frappuccino, you're going out for dessert more so than going out for coffee."

It's good to be aware of your liquid calories, because they go down so quick, and don't keep you as satisfied since they don't offer tons of protein or fibre. Graeme adds, "7-10 vanilla latte's per week equates to 1750-2500 calories. 25 Americano's per week equates to 0 calories..." If fat loss is your goal, it may help to modify your Starbucks order.

Here are a few tips to cutting calories at Starbucks:

  • Don't want to give up your fave drink? Just order a smaller size.
  • Order "light" or "skinny" versions of your favourite drinks.
  • Ask for fewer pumps of the syrup used in specialty drinks.
  • Go for almond or nonfat milk over whole or soy milk.
  • Skip the whipped cream.
  • If you're a tea drinker, choose unsweetened.
  • Order these Starbucks drinks which are under 150 calories, or these under 200.
  • Choose choose one day a week to order your favourite dessert-like coffee and sit down to sip it (away from your computer screen) so you can thoroughly enjoy your treat.
