That extra caffeine perk to get you through the day may also get you a few extra pounds on the scale, says a new study.
The findings are based on 3,000 purchases made at 115 restaurant chains in New York City, and include:
-Brewed coffee and tea contain an average of 63 calories, including when the drink may come with sugar and milk.
-Blended beverages contain about 239 calories, which is 89 more calories than a can of soda.
-A large ice-blended coffee drink can contain a whopping 750 calories or more.
You don't have to give up your favorite caffeine craving, but moderation always helps, and so does going for low-fat or skim milk instead of whole and using little to no sugar.
