Has anyone gained weight from Starbucks beverages?

I know I have - I had to cut out the mochas. I think one grande drink is a day's allotment of calories!

  • When I was working I did. I used to drink 2 grande cafe vanilla frapps with no whip cream. I miss them so much. =(

  • I can't totally blame them but I'm sure they did play a part. I have switched over to iced tea and sweeten it with splenda.

  • just get a skim milk latte & put splenda in it SO MUCH LESS CALORIES. Those specialty drinks are horrible for you, i don't even like them. I like it simple. Coffee...skim milk....or espresso & skim milk.

  • Actually the soy lattes are on the belly good list in my book! I love them!

  • I'm sure I could but I don't drink them often enough. Usually I just get black coffee. I have a few pumpkin spice lattes in fall and a couple of frappucinos each summer but I'd only lose 1-2lbs a year by cutting them out.

  • not really I drink the passion iced tea non sweet or chai tea latte non fat so not so bad.My daughter has introduced her brothers and dad to a vanilla bean drink that tastes almost like a milk shake.SO YUMMY but it is good the younger brothers can't drive and dad is busy !!!!
