i've never seen a skinny frap

Ever stand in starbucks and hear a skinny chic order a tall no fat no whip mocha? Uh..hello honey but why??? Why??? There’s MOCHA in that bitch. I just don’t get it. The only thing you really should order there is black coffee, add a touch of half and half and some splenda. Anything else is a veiled attempt at low-fat, low-carbs, low….

Ok so I have personally switched from Vanilla Latte (Breve) with no-sugar vanilla syrup to…a Café Misto with the same no-sugar vanilla syrup.

Whole milk is less fattening than half and half by a LOT. I have learned recently that I can’t just cut carbs or just cut fat. Unfortunately you have to watch all of those numbers. And I suppose you have to drop an iron pill with your morning coffee too. *sigh* There’s just no easy way…

Go with a café misto….yes I know your thin but at least be thin and smart…girl in Starbucks…I see you or a facsimile every day. You’re all uneducated coffee consumers. (note to reader: if you want to correct me or tell me something I don’t know..I’m fine with that, however here’s my proof. I’ve switched to café misto. Ever see a fat chic order anything with the words (low fat, non fat, half fat) in it’s title? Nope..she’s usually the one with the big frapp she’s licking off her fingers. The skinny chic is the same girl at McDonalds ordering a Big Mac meal and a diet coke I think.
