I came to realize that in addition to coffee being a bit of a ritual for me at home and in the office, it has also been a pretty significant sugar delivery vehicle. So since July, I have cut sugar out of my coffee drinking habit. Curious about the impact of such a change? I was.
2 tsp sugar x 3 cups of coffee x 6 days per week x 52 weeks = 1,872 tsps or 39 cups of sugar per year!
That’s disgusting. Need to see more numbers? Me, too.
1,872 tsp of sugar in the raw x 15 calories per tsp = 28,080 extra calories per year from sweetening my coffee
So a simple change like that is removing as many calories from my diet as two weeks of pure fasting.
