What's in Your Coffee?
Are you drinking your calories without even knowing it?
Sugary coffee drinks with milk are loaded with calories and high in fat.
Just by taking the sugar and cream out of your tea and coffee, you can cut 350 calories a week. If you do that for ten days, that's one pound.

Every teaspoon of sugar you add to your cup adds 16 calories to your drink. A tablespoon of cream has about 52 calories.
A "pump" of flavoring from flavoured syrup has about 20. A 20 oz drink usually contains about five pumps - which means turning your latte into a mocha can add nearly 100 calories to a large drink.
