Wake up people.......
Here's a news flash, that skinny vanilla latte, it ain't making you skinny! Every morning millions of people start their day by going to Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks and getting a beverage, food or both. Even though the food/beverage that you select may be low-fat you're still taking in some serious sugar and artificial ingredients your body doesn't need.
I tend to prefer Starbucks, that's where I get my Grande Black Coffee, yes- I need my caffeine. I usually stop there 2 to 3 times a week, and almost every time I see someone order something that is not "calorie appropriate" for the type of physical stature that they posses. 9 times out of 10 I witness someone obese ordering a cupcake, muffin, or cookie with their skinny latte, and they think they are on the right track.
Now I don't want to sound like an arrogant bastard, but come on, you don't need to be eating and drinking 500 calories of garbage for breakfast. I do feel bad for these people because they might think what they are eating/drinking is "okay" for them or they might not even care about being overweight- but to me its unacceptable.
Little changes in someones daily routine can lead them to a healthier, happier, and more energetic life. Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts have all of their nutrition facts online, and some locations even have a hard copy on the wall or a pamphlet for distribution. Take a look at what you are putting in your system first thing in the morning. If it's a meal loaded with sugar, filled with process carbohydrates, and contaminated with artificial chemicals- it's time for a healthy change.
