What's 1 teaspoon of sugar my coffee??

Monday, April 11, 2011

Do the math: emoticon

I usually have 3 cups of coffee each morning with 1 teaspoon of sugar in each cup.

3 teaspoons of sugar is 4.2 grams/teaspoon or 12.6 grams total

365 days x 12.6 grams = 4599 grams for the year

3.9 calories per gram of sugar

4599 x 3.9 = 17, 936 calories per year from sugar in my coffee

17,936/3500 = 5.12 pounds

17,936 calories per year.....drinking my coffee with just the usual milk makes an impact.

Small changes do add up! emoticon

I haven't had sugar in my coffee for about a month now. I think it really helps reduce my afternoon sugar cravings. Give it a try!
