Hi everyone! I am starting today and I have a question about Starbucks. I love sugar free hazelnut skim lattes from Starbucks but I'm not 100% sure if they are allowed. Help! Thanks,KakababyWink

go to this web page and it will tell you if all the ingrediants are allowed for phase 1 or not...i do not think they are allowed until phase 2...but i could be wrong

Low-fat (1 percent) or fat-free milk or soy milk
Plain or sugar-free low-fat or fat-free yogurt
Fat-free half & half

They shouldn't be a problem, it's coffee, (artificial ?) hazelnut flavoring and skim milk, what else could it have that's bad if it's sugar free and fat free? Just find out what's in if to know for sure, if there is sugar in it, double check and see how much sugar is in skim milk to confirm there's none added. Also count the amount of milk used toward your daily 2 cups allowed on phase 1.

You can get nutritional breakdowns for all your favorite Starbucks from the store.
BTW, this is from their message boards

Da Vinci sells wonderful SF flavoring syrups that you can use in coffee, milkshakes or sparkling water to make Italian soda. If you like frozen cappuccino drinks, www.cowhillexpress.com has a SF frozen cappuccino syrup and also sells many Da Vinci flavors. Other on-line sites sell Da Vinci and Da Vinci sells directly on their site too. I have their pumpkin pie and eggnog flavorings for the holidays. I often make cherry-vanilla milkshakes or Cowhill's frozen cappuccino shakes. And on Phase 2 you can make smoothies with them.

I did have Starbucks today and I ordered a tall, nonfat, decaf, sugar free Cinnamon Dolce Latte w/out whip cream and it was delicious! I looked online for nutrition info and the only thing I found was it still has 12g of sugar - but I guess that comes from the nonfat milk, not the syrup. Wink

Hate to say whats already been said, but no they aren't allowed, it's the amount of milk that will get you. But I love starbucks and you CAN have an americano with SF flavoring. Try a tall americano with sf hazelnut. You'll still need to add perhaps one packet of splenda to it, it will be a strong coffee flavor but it is totally legal!

The list seems confusing to some, but what the book explains is that you can use a LITTLE ff half & or some milk, but only to add to some cooking or coffee if you MUST, but otherwise to avoid it.

I believe it is too much milk, but personally I do Americanos with s/f flavoring and add a couple Tbsps. of Half and Half. They will put skim milk at some coffe shops if you ask for it. Also for SBD it counts towards your one sweet treat.

Love the food that loves you back.

Take it one day at a time!

The SBD has been changed to include 2 4oz servings of milk per day on phase one. I'm signed up at their website and that's what is listed. As far as how much milk is in a latte you should ask Starbucks, you can get the nutritional info at the store, and probably somewhere on line if you Google it.

I'll did up the milk thing from the SBD website and post it. Smile

Here's the phase one dairy scoop.
MILK/DAIRY
(2 cups allowed daily, including low-fat or nonfat plain yogurt)
Low-fat milk (fat-free and 1%)
Fat-free 1/2 & 1/2 (less than 2 tablespoons)
Low-fat plain, vanilla, or sucralose-containing soy milk (4 grams of fat or less per 8 ounce serving). Be sure the product does not contain high fructose corn syrup
1% or fat-free buttermilk
Low-fat or nonfat plain yogurt

IMO, any diagnosis like this should come with a referral to a dietician so that you understand what would work for you. You may want to contact your MD to get a referral. Best wishes!
