Food Fraud: 2% Milk Latte
It’s tempting to choose “reduced-fat” milk in a latte and reward yourself with whipped cream on top. Sadly, this trade-off still adds up to 580 calories and 15 grams of saturated fat in a 20 ounce white chocolate mocha. That’s worse than a quarter-pound burger with cheese.
Food Fix: A sweetened, frothy beverage is a diet splurge. Limit the damage with nonfat (skim) milk and no whipped cream. You’ll avoid 130 calories and two-thirds of the bad fat.
