It is fine to want one. As long as you don't act on that desire! Sounds like you're not, good for you!

I did too, and went so far as to put my order in the app, but then I realized I didn't want to leave the house to pick it up.

I can’t go near a Starbucks!. The aroma is so tempting but the price, both caloric and $$$, is just not in my financial nor nutrition plan! Quick swerve at the grocery store

Here is a link to the nutrition for a Venti Caramel Frappuccino:

www.starbucks.com/menu/product/424/iced?pa
rent=%2Fdrinks%2Ffrappuccino-blended-b
everages%2Fcoffee-frappuccino


It's loaded with calories (470), fat (16 g) and 74 grams of sugars! You definitely don't need that. At all. 470 calories is a meal and this dessert has no nutritional value.

If I go to Starbuck's, which is rarely because it's expensive. I usually get an Iced Grande Nonfat Caramel Caramel Macchiato:

Hmmmm...here's a thought. Why not try a creative substitution? And plan for it so it fits into your daily nutrition plan. Brew your own cup of Starbucks coffee in whatever flavor you're especially fond of. Add 4 TBSP liquid, sugar-free, Italian Sweet Cream CoffeeMate. To that add a splash or two of Tofani brand or similar, caramel flavor, sugar free syrup. Sample this mixture and sweeten further, if desired, with Splenda or other sugar substitute. The grand total will cost you 60 calories and maybe, just maybe, will satisfy as well as the Starbucks version - and will cost you a lot less. Need chocolate? I buy the NOMU brand Skinny Hot Chocolate powder. I like to add a heaping teaspoon to my morning coffee for 20 additional calories. It's utterly fabulous! Enjoy!!

All things are possible.

When those thoughts come, count backward from 5. 5-4-3-2-1 and then move. Move to another room, go for a walk, do something else to reprogram that thought. It's the 5- second rule.

Sounds like you really don't want one anyway.... great!

With whip and carmel and cream and pumps of sugar. I'm going to sip my water and pet my dog until it passes.
