I'm a health coach – here's my Starbucks 'order hack' to slash 280 calories

HAVING a delicious coffee that you don't have to make yourself is a nice treat.

But they can be high in sugar, making it hard for you to enjoy, especially if you're watching what you eat.

If you're following a calorie controlled plan and you're trying to cut back on the amount of sugar in your diet, these sugar-laden drinks are surely a no-no.

It was previously found that our tea and coffee habits could be piling us with additional calories.
