So, I was pondering today, whilst listening to a couple of ladies discuss latte choices, that lots of women are way too worried about calories. I don’t think it dawns on a lot of people that CALORIES ARE FUEL FOR YOUR BODY, NOT THE ENEMY!!! For Christ’s sake, people, you will DIE WITHOUT FAT IN YOUR DIET!!!
Sometimes I just want to tell that to people when they are standing there wondering if they have enough calories left in their day for a non-fat, sugar-free latte. I also want to yell at the people who get double-syrup breves, though, because that’s simply ridiculous, too.
I had a lady yesterday get really confused when I told her that plain drip coffee has calories in it. Duh! Coffee is just very small particles of the coffee bean suspended in hot water, lady! Those particles are gonna have some energy in them.
Man, people are dumb.
