Coffee lovers out there, I have some great (and not-so-great) news for you!
Firstly, the good news: consuming coffee is great for your cardiovascular health and may even help you manage your diabetes better or lower your risks if you don’t have it yet.
The bad side is that coffee can mess with your blood sugar levels the minute you start adding flavors and that unfortunately includes most of the goodies from Starbucks.
For example, one Caramel Frappuccino (16 ouces) gives you 57 grams of carbs – and most of them come as sugar.
Don’t get me wrong, you can still enjoy these beverages if you’re not already diagnosed with diabetes; however, it’s better to see them as a dessert rather than your daily dose of caffeine.
If you just can’t live without coffee, I get it. You can safely consume this holy grail of energy simply by avoiding these popular but unhealthy additions.
