Basic Tips + Guidelines:

  • Skip the Whip
  • Sugar Free syrups (knock off cals)
  • Avoid added toppings
  • Avoid Whole Milk and go for an alternative Almond Milk is the lowest in calories
  • Stick to the basics! If you are getting a crazy drink might as well indulge in a candy bar instead
  • When choosing food- go for fruit bars, mixed nuts, fruit or any of their salad selections, SKIP pastries! and if you do HAVE to have a pastry, go for a bagel.
  • Ordering something “skinny” means they switch to sugar free syrup!
  • Always order UNsweetened then add zero calorie sweetener

Okay! So those are tips and guidelines that I follow and now these are a few of my favorite drinks! The “F C P” below stands for amount of Fat, Carbs, and Protein each drink contains.
