Watch Out Coffee Lovers

Previous Post | Next Post

Coffee lovers love their caffeine, but watch out how you drink it. No source of sugar is more stealthy than the caffeine kicks dished out at coffee shops. Even an unflavored 16-ounce latte has close to 200 calories, and for the average person that represents nearly 10 percent of your daily energy requirements. Starbucks alone sells about two dozen drinks with more than 500 calories apiece. Drink something like that once a day, and you're facing at least an extra 50 pounds of flab each year!  So, come to the Y and burn off all those coffee "drinks" calories. Enjoy your coffee and enjoy the Y.
