Is Starbucks (or any coffee addiction for that matter) making you fat?

We are coffee-crazed in this country – and Starbucks has definitely capitalized on it – but our fancy-coffee drinking fettish as a country may have a huge impact on our waistline. Don’t forget even when you are drinking your favorite pick-me-up beverage, you may be drinking more than you bargained for.
Check out some of the most popular Starbucks choices:

A grande Cafe Mocha has 330 calories, 15 grams of fat, and 33 grams of sugar
A blueberry muffin has 320 calories, 11 grams of fat, and 31 grams of sugar

Put these together for your “convenient” breakfast and you have 650 calories, 26 grams of fat, and 64 grams of sugar.

Is this part of your morning routine? Remember – a pound of fat is made up of 3500 calories – do the math – do this every morning, even if it is “every once in a while,” and you will get a few added pounds, free compliments of Starbucks. Would you like whipped cream on that?

Any thoughts?
