Hump Day Snack: This Woman Will Only Eat and Drink at Starbucks All Year

This woman named Beautiful Existence (her real name according to her website) has challenged herself to eat and drink only at Starbucks in 2013. Why would someone subject themselves to such a project, you might ask? It could be an unyielding hankering for mediocre coffee and baked goods. It could be a desire to guest on morning talk shows. It could be because she loves the question “why?” (The answer, according to Beautiful Existence, is the latter). Ostensibly she’s already shed five pounds during her initial fortnight. You can follow her updates on 1 Woman, 1 Year, 1 Challenge.

By the way, if you’re interested in losing five pounds with more flavor and less gimmick, be sure to tune in to Drop 5 Lbs with Good Housekeeping this Saturday, January 19, at 10:30am ET on Cooking Channel.
