Some woman ate nothing but Starbucks in 2013 and lived to tell about it

In the interest of science, a real-life woman actually named Beautiful Existence saw Super Size Me (probably) one too many times and set out to live an entire year of her life whilst consuming nothing but Starbucks products. At the end of 2013, Ms. Existence authored a post for her blog (of course she has a blog) to let everyone know that she was successful in her intrepid quest to improve life for all mankind, one orange-mocha Frappuccino at a time.

In the interest of science, a real-life woman actually named Beautiful Existence saw Super Size Me (probably) one too many times and set out to live an entire year of her life whilst consuming nothing but Starbucks products. At the end of 2013, Ms. Existence authored a post for her blog (of course she has a blog) to let everyone know that she was successful in her intrepid quest to improve life for all mankind, one orange-mocha Frappuccino at a time.

I ate and drank EVERYTHING for an ENTIRE YEAR from Starbucks!

THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to everybody that was involved, watched, helped, visited, commented, inspired and encouraged these 365 days of ONLY Starbucks in 2013!  What a year it has been, and I couldn’t have done it without you all!

She spent approximately $500-$600 a month on pre-packaged salads and wraps and various coffee drinks at The Bucks. The mother of two still shopped and cooked like a normal person for her children, but chose to maintain the Starbucks diet for herself

Her first non-Starbucks meal was fish and chips from Seattle-based restaurant chain Ivar's.

"My taste buds have been freaking out for the last 24 hours," Existence told The News. "Starbucks doesn't really have anything that's fried, and you can only eat so much after you haven't had stuff like that for a year." [NYDN]
