Starbucks Green Goddess vs. Green Tea

In college it’s typical to see girls chugging their ice coffees like water, who can blame them right? Between five intense classes, an internship, a job, of course students are going to pass back a few coffees to pass their classes. Personally, I believe a cup of Starbucks qualifies as an accessory, possibly even a staple.  Just holding that white Grande cup with the green goddess logo, “We proudly serve,” on the front is enough to make me smile.

I used to wonder why the green lady has her long locks cover her breasts…but I think I now know the answer…she is hiding her shrinking breasts!

Yes, that’s right…Starbucks proudly serves smaller boobs! A study published in the British Journal of Cancer examined 300 female coffee drinkers asking how much coffee they had daily and then measured their bust size. The data showed women who drank more than 3 cups of coffee a day had an average breast size of 17% small then women who consumed less than 3 cups per day. Wonderful. You want an A in the class but in return get an A cup…clearly this is a cup half empty situation.  Who knew a cup of coffee could result in a smaller cup size.

Scientists believe coffee’s impact on estrogen causes the shrinkage, however, don’t think you will be able to now spot those who are achieving the A’s in their class from those who aren’t.  Before you blame the green lady on your Starbucks cup, maybe consider the lady who gave birth to you. Genetics and diet obviously impact your bra size too.

Brew Better Breasts!

Prevent more than a loose bra while brewing some loose tea levees! I hate to stir the pot but studies show that green tea has more health benefits then coffee. Green tea has slightly less caffeine, yet just enough to give you the energy to get you through a busy day. Scientists have noticed that there are substantial benefits of green tea, both on preventing cancer and treating it. The antioxidants in green tea have cancer preventing properties, in particular breast cancer. The polyphenols keep your cells healthy so you can fight the destructive effects pollution has on the body. Asian cultures have used green tea for its healing properties for centuries not to mention their cancer rate is much lower than that of the Western world.

Sure, coffee has its benefits as well but green tea certainlyoutweighs them!  Who wouldn’t want green tea’s anti-aging benefits, cancer disease fighting antioxidants, and a healthy metabolism?  Nutritionist, Oz Garcia, who is famous for helping celebs slim down states, “Coffee increases cravings. It can control appetite in the moment, but it will cause you to be hungrier in the long run—it makes your blood sugar shoot up, then crash hours later.” To prepare for the Oscars, Garcia advises clients to drink four cups of green tea daily. According to Self Magazine green tea has catechins, disease fighting antioxidants that boost metabolism. Your creamy cup of Joe won’t help you fit into those Joes Jeans, but green tea just might! Green teas weight loss effects are more effective, increasing metabolism and burns fat, hence why green tea extracts are in a large percentage of fat burners and green tea supplements. Green tea prevents obesity and has been shown to promote fat oxidation when you are in a resting state, in other words it even helps you burn fat while you’re sleeping!

Steep, Sip Smile!

Studies show a sip a day may keep the dentist away! If you want to keep your pearly whites healthy perhaps you can turn to a kettle of tea! A new study published by Preventive Medicine claims having a cup of green tea daily can benefit your tea. The catechins in green tea promote healthy and stronger teeth. According the people 40-64 who drank one cup of green tea was less likely to lose their teeth to tooth decay.

Don’t have a taste for green tea?

The polyphenols EGCG and ECG in green tea help keep skin looking fresh and young! Even if you’re not a fan of drinking tea you can use this antioxidant to your advantage.

          Put caffeinated green tea bags on puffy eyes to reduce inflammation. My friend Byron Pierre swears by this trick! Not only does it feel so relaxing but really decreases eyelid swelling! Green tea isn’t just for ladies but perfect for guys too.  Men who have to shave often can irritate heir skin, causing redness and razor burn. Shaving using water with green tea bags in it can make a huge difference and improve complexion leaving skin more toned and bump-free!

    Coming from a male’s perspective, I was never a big fan of coffee. I would always feel highly anxious after having just a small cup; never had a problem with green tea and continue to drink it everyday for its benefits. I’m looking forward to reading more and sharing:))
