DAY 6: The “Cutting” Struggle is Real | Starbucks

Sorry, not sorry...

The verdict is in-

I absolutely have to have my iced coffee or vanilla chai tea from Starbucks. One thing that I love about Starbucks is the option to add sugar free flavors to my drink. My favorite sugar free syrups include: SF Vanilla and SF Cinnamon Dolce. Opting for a sugar free sweetener is a better choice for flavor if you are seeking to eliminate excessive sugars and calories from your diet.

I know I made a commitment to refrain from coffee over the next 30 days but I enjoy coffee entirely too much. Plus, hubby has started drinking Starbucks iced coffee again and I absolutely love our weekend coffee dates.

(What have you found to be the hardest item to cut out of your diet over the course of the next 30 days? Is it a specific food, sweet, or beverage? What appeals you about this particular item? Does it make you feel good? Describe the feeling you get when you consume it.)

Iced coffee excites and jolts me with every sip. I honestly feel like after I consume my coffee I am capable of conquering anything ahead of me for that day. I definitely would say that the caffeine makes me feel good. Also, the flavors are delicious!

If you enjoy Starbucks and are looking for a low carb beverage I will list a few of my favorite drink options below that are “keto-friendly”.

Starbucks Keto-Friendly Drinks

Iced Coffee: Iced Coffee, heavy whipping cream, SF vanilla, SF cinnamon dolce

Caffe Mistro: Caffe Mistro, 50/50 heavy cream and water

Low Carb Americano: Americano, heavy cream

Comment below if you would like for me to create a post specifically for low carb Starbucks drink options.

Choosing to live a healthier life does not have to be torture. It all starts with having the discipline to make better choices. I am here to support you as I continue on my journey to health and wellness.

Watch for more information

I highly encourage you to be your own advocate when it comes to your health. Do your research. Anyone who speaks against the sustainability of eating meats and veggies for the long term simply lacks knowledge.

Healthcare professionals push the incorporation of fruit, dairy, grains and starches in your “balanced” diet. However, they advise you to reduce sugar in your diet. Be mindful that these foods break down ultimately into sugar. Consuming these foods in excess can result in many health problems as sugar is linked to inflammation and the breaking down of needed blood vessels.

The most proven way to accelerate weight loss and improve your health is to reduce sugar in your diet. In order to reduce sugar in your diet, you must eliminate the consumption of simple carbs (ceral, pasta, soda, bread, etc.) Aside from what you are consuming your body makes and regulates its own sugar. Adding excess sugar will result in excess weight gain. This is a fact that I did not learn from my personal doctor. There are so many enlightened individuals like Dr Ken Berry, who have medical degrees and are actively sharing supported information on these issues.

Doctors are working for the healthcare industry and they are expected to follow certain guidelines which are regulated. If they really told you the truth on how to “get healthy” it would be a fall in our healthcare system. There would be no need for monthly follow up appointments, or repeat labs. Pharmaceutical companies would see a decrease in profit, since medication sales would also decrease.

Medication is not the answer to controlling your levels or getting healthy. There are far too many risks associated with medications that are recommended to “treat” medical conditions. Medications are not the cure or answer to your health problems. I personally would not choose to medicate a problem. I support solving and eliminating the problem.
