I bet her weight loss is really due to the cancer caused by free WiFi radiation
 
2012-09-16 02:56:43 PM  
Gee - she ate less than 1,000 calories per day, about 1/2 what they recommend for her. And people are looking at her weight loss and saying, HOW DID SHE DO IT????

Calories in, calories out. Keep your insulin from spiking if that's an issue for you. That is it. That is ALL of it.

I bet its cuz she couldn't afford to eat there more than once per day.

If you spend about 3 hours a day on a toilet, you obviously will lose 85 pounds.

This. I'm immediately skeptical of any weight-loss regime that doesn't boil down to "eat less, move more".

Yeah, if you're buying a venti Sugar Coffee Whip Cream Chocolate Frappucino crazy thing... And if she's having 1k calories a day, I doubt she is.

Drip coffee is like a dollar and a half.

Chances are you are not buying coffee if you are spending $8. More like some kind of frapachino with hundreds of calories. If you get coffee or an americano in her case (espresso and water), it is cheap and low in calories if you keep it black. When I start my day with a Venti Redeye it sets me back $3.17, not bad for the amount of caffeine.

Homeless/Poor protip #25: A Venti (Starbuck-speak for Large) normal coffee costs $2.25 in Orange County. Fifty-cent refills all day long. Get registered on their website and earn a Gold card, which gets you FREE refills all day long. Get a double-cup and wait till shift change, or go to another location, and you can double that to free refills on TWO coffees all day long. Save the cups and keep them clean, and they generally are good for free "refills" each day. You can generally do this for 3-4 days before the cups start falling apart. Oh, the and Gold card gives you a free "anything" drink for each 15 new coffee purchases.

Protip #26: Get friendly with the help and you can get freebie pastries and sandwiches at the end of day, when they either throw out the stuff that's left, or freeze it to give to the various church foodbanks that hand them out to homeless and poor people.

When my kids were six and four years old we'd go to to downtown DC (Foggy Bottom) and/or Georgetown and I'd give them a fiver and send them into Starbucks for a couple of cookies. Generally, they'd come out with more cookies than they could easily carry, a venti decaf with cream, and the fiver intact.

I went to my local starbucks tonight, sure enough a black "medium" coffee costed me $2.79 - frankly I thought Mcdonald's 1 dollar coffee was actually better, mind it was actually fresh which makes a difference.

Tits behind the counter did give me a great piece of advice, Panera bread has coffee and cake after 7pm for half price - so I downed my brew and headed over there, it was $3.25 for a medium potato waffler and a cup of Joe.

Never ate at Panera bread before, its on the opposite side of town for me, only thing I could get away from is fact starbucks is a Hipster hangout, but not as bad when you consider Panera bread had a youth baseball team in there, bunch of kids running around with corn cobs up their asses.

McDonald's coffee probably ends up being fresher because they sell for $1. At that price they probably outsell Starbucks when it comes to plain, no-frills coffee.

First, where the hell are you that a bag of beans costs only $5. Here in OC we're taking at least $6 or $7.

Second, it's a little tough to run a coffee grinder and brew coffee when you are living in a car or truck, or under an out-of-the-way bush (no electricity). DOH!
