After walking around Washington DC on a cold and windy day recently, my husband and I stopped to enjoy some hot chocolate. The menu board not only listed the sizes (small, medium, large) and cost of the hot chocolate options – it also listed the calories. A small hot chocolate has 350 calories, and the large has 600 calories – I bet you can guess which one I chose!
What size beverage do you typically choose? If you’re drinking something with calories, go for the smaller size. If you’re drinking water – opt for the large, or even supersize. Save calories throughout the day, and they add up. Plus those calories in beverages come from added sugar or added fat, and we can certainly do without either of them.
