Speaking of starving… I’ve been

Speaking of starving… I’ve been doing pretty well with my New Year’s Resolution. I decided that I drink way too much soda (I was up to 3-4 20oz Dr. Peppers or Code Reds a day). So, I’m down to one 20oz Dr. Pepper for breakfast. On my daily trek to the convenience store in the building with some friends, I decided to take a look at how many calories I’m saving with my new plan. If you look at the back of your Dr. Pepper bottle, it says there are 100 calories per serving. You’d think by serving, they meant the bottle, right? Nope! 8 ounces. Who drinks 8 ounces of a 20 ounce bottle and then puts it away? Not I, and not anyone I know. There are 2.5 servings per bottle, which means that every 20 ounce Dr. Pepper is actually 250 calories. That means I’m saving 750 calories a day by not drinking my other three. And even worse, Code Red is 120 (I think, it might be 150) calories per serving. Fat, your days are numbered!
