Black coffee, on the other hand, is loaded with antioxidants and in moderate consumption, coffee can be very beneficial to the body. Some dieters even say they have lost more weight by drinking coffee before exercising, and many weight loss supplements do include caffeine. Some nutritionists believe it effects on weight loss might be caused by the body being forced to depend on fat for fuel or perhaps because caffeine acts as a stimulant and therefore accelerates metabolism. Just don’t neglect to drink plenty of water during your workout.
So go ahead and have that cup of coffee, just go easy on the extras. It is the cream and sugar that becomes fattening. Think of it this way, when you have a cup of coffee or tea with cream and two cubes of sugar, you are essentially eating a piece of chocolate cake every time. Now think of how many pieces of cake you are eating when you have a Starbucks Latte – yikes!
Here’s a humorous look at what coffee’s doing to our future:
The Starbucks generation
Starbucks, maybe you have heard of it, a popular little coffee shop that has stained a permanent ring into the veneer of our society. It has become more iconic than McDonalds as a representation of the American lifestyle.
However Starbucks has provided more than just a place for casual business meetings over a blended coffee drink. Around 3PM on any given weekday Starbucks plays a vital role in the future productivity of this Country.
Breaking the popular trend of not serving coffee to minors, Starbucks provides caffeinated beverages to throngs of Middle School and Jr. High students. Children between the ages of 10-16 can be seen daily sitting around sipping iced coffee’s and Frappuchinos so big they must use two jittery hands to hold the cup. These kids are the future and thanks to Starbucks they are primed for maximum efficiency.
Coffee has played a vital role in the productivity of the work place for decades. There is hardly an office without a pot brewing throughout the day. However in the past, coffee was bitter and unappealing to children, now through the creativity and marketing of Starbucks, this nectar of efficiency is available to tomorrow’s fast thinkers.
Hyperactivity and Attention Deficit be damned, these are not problems, they are evolution! The world today moves slower than our youth think. By the time they are ready for their very own cubicles, information and production will have caught up with them. Industry in the future will move so quickly that the rest of the Starbucksless world will appear to be standing still.
So give little Tommy another Double Shot and stand back slow poke!
