Dr Oz: Diet Coffee Drink Reviews
Maybe you have been working hard to lose weight and count calories, but still aren’t getting results. Where could the problem lie? The truth is you may not realize where you’re sneaking extra calories into your routine. He said that our favorite coffee drinks could be working against our weight loss goals. That’s why he took a look at coffee from popular chains, including Starbucks Vs McDonald’s and Dunkin Donuts Vs Au Bon Pain. Find out which coffees are better for you, and how to avoid the hidden calories.
It wasn’t that long ago that cream and sugar were the only options you had for embellishing your coffee. But these days, there are countless add ins, such as chocolate syrup, whipped cream, and caramel. More than 30 million of us are guzzling our favorite coffee drinks, but what we don’t like to think about is that all those extras could be tacking on 10 times the calories.
However, you can still enjoy flavorful coffee without the consequences. Dr Oz explained that to Agatha, a woman who admitted fueling her coffee addiction with six cups every day and a whopping 2000 calories in coffee alone. He gave her (and the rest of us) some pointers on making coffee a little healthier.
Dr Oz: Starbucks Vs McDonald’s Coffee
Dr Oz compared some of the popular national chain restaurants to see how their coffee stacks up, and how to get away with the best tasting beverage for the lowest calorie count.
Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino Light Review
Order a tall Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino Light, with 110 calories and 1 gram of fat. This coffee fills you up without the extra calories. Agatha said it tasted chocolately.
McDonald’s McCafe Caramel Mocha Review
The small McDonald’s McCafe Caramel Mocha has 175 calories and 3 grams of fat. To cut even more calories, Dr Oz suggested using 1/2 Skim and 1/2 Whole Milk.
Dr Oz: Dunkin Donuts Vs Au Bon Pain Coffee
Dunkin Donuts Iced Coffee with Turbo Shot Review
The Dunkin Donuts Iced Coffee with Turbo Shot has 35 calories and 1 gram of fat. You can use Stevia to sweeten it, and it includes an energy boosting Espresso shot.
Au Bon Pain Cappuccino Review
The small Au Bon Pain Cappuccino has 120 calories and 7 grams of fat. Here again, you can sneak in some Stevia for consequence-free sweetness.
