Starbucks Starbucks has locations all over, and around here, it’s one of the only places open at night where you can go to hang out with friends.

So what? Putting this amount of fat and sugar into your body can have extremely negative consequences, which is to say nothing of artificial flavors, high fructose corn syrup, and other nutritional bad guys. Starbucks products are also highly addictive because of the high caffeine and sugar content.
The good news is, you don’t have to give up Starbucks altogether, you simply need to learn how to see through their genius marketing schemes and confusing ordering system. You can still have a white mocha, but you could customize your drink to make it less harmful to your body.
A better white mocha A Grande White Mocha has 470 calories, 18 grams of fat, 12 grams of saturated fat, 59 grams of sugar and 150 milligrams of caffeine. Switch to a tall, ask for nonfat milk, no whipped cream, and only 2 pumps of the white mocha syrup. It makes a huge difference. But what would you call it?
A tall, 2 pump, nonfat, no whip white mocha: This way it has only 213 calories, 3 grams of fat, 2.3 grams of saturated fat, 35 grams of sugar and 75 milligrams of caffeine. That’s less than 1/2 the calories, 1/6 of the fat, a little more than ½ the sugar, and ½ the caffeine.
Decoding the System Read the following article about how to be smart at Starbucks. Highlight or underline anything that is particularly interesting to you. Circle any foods or drinks that you would like to try. Any comments?
Your Turn Now, go back to your usual order. Underneath your “Do Now” answers, write down a modified version of your drink. Make it something you’d actually try, but get rid of as many grams of sugar and fat as you can. Let’s check out someone’s new drink online.online
Ticket Out On your ticket out, write down: 1) one new thing you learned, 2) one thing you want to try, 3) one question about the lesson.
