    Ew ... I tried McDonald's sugar-free lattes once. Mine was so horrible, I couldn't get past the first sip. I don't even know what you'd have to do to make it that bad. And I'm not usually a very picky person!!

    Find a good, local coffee house and you won't need sweeteners anymore

    I don't like their lattes, either, but I do like their coffee with some cream in it.

    I've heard that their coffee is pretty good. I'm just not a regular coffee fan. I almost always make my lattes at home, to save money and make them with the best ingredients. It's actually pretty easy to roast your own beans, even. You can use anything from a $300 drum roaster to a $50 popcorn maker to a $15 cast iron skillet. Freshest beans ever, roasted just how you like ... and bonus, you can get super high quality beans on the cheap when you buy green!

    Anyone know of a natural alternative to caffeine? I lost my job recently because I wasnt able to work at a fast enough pace. If was a dish washing job starting at 6am. I drink decaf cold brewed coffee at home because it is lower acidity and I drink decaf because im sensitive to caffeine. Is there any natural alternative to caffeine for a sensitive individual? I was going to give ginseng a try but theres tannins in ginseng and im sensitive to tannins which is why I cant drink a lot of wine without getting an instant large tension headache during consumption before I even get drunk.

    Chaohinon, have you found any good local places? I've hit up a Dazbog or two, their coffee isn't bad. But they're not exactly local. I heard good stuff about Carino's but they're kinda out of my way. And I'm not hipster enough for Ink.

    So...ideas?

    So using the terrific advise posted above in this thread, I've transitioned from vanilla latte's and Frappuccino's to breve's and now to heavy cream, as has my coffee/espresso addicted fiancée. I've found that one of the great benefits of going primal is that what would have once been too bland or bitter to my sugar-addicted tastebuds now tastes fantastic.

    Unfortunately, it means I've found myself a new addiction.

    My current Starbucks order is a Tall Double/Triple Heavy Cream Latte. Obviously, this is an indulgence. My question is how often is too often? Should I be trying to keep these down to one a week or less? Or have I discovered the modern Grok's breakfast of champions and should I be drinking five a day? Any thoughts?

    It really depends on your goals. If you are shooting for a certain amount of fat per day, you could calculate how much fat is in the drink and make sure to incorporate that into your daily count. I would suggest that you at least determine how much sugar you are consuming, as that is probably the worst offense in any blended drink.
