Bigger Beverages Mean Bigger Americans

If you order the new Starbucks "trenta" iced coffee, coming in at a massive 31 ounces and an equally massive calorie load, bear in mind that in comes with the potential to pack more than 20 extra pounds onto your body in one year.

An extra 200 calories per day leads to a potential weight gain of about 2 pounds per month, or potentially 21 pounds per year.

According to Newswise:

"A normal cup of coffee is considered to be 6 to 8 ounces ... Drinks are rather sneaky sources (usually) of empty calories -- nutritionally deplete."
