  • US woman sues Starbucks for $5 mn over ice in cold drinks

    A Chicago woman is suing Starbucks for more than $5 million, claiming the coffee giant is underfilling its popular hand-blended iced coffee, tea and other drinks, making customers overpay for beverages. In a lawsuit seeking a jury trial and class action status, alleging false advertising and consumer fraud, Stacy Pincus accuses the world's biggest coffee retailer of serving its customers "much less than advertised -- often nearly half as many fluid ounces." "As a result of this practice, Starbucks's cold drinks contain significantly less product than advertised, by design and corporate practice and procedure," the suit filed last week says. Starbucks baristas typically fill cold-drink plastic cups to the top black line printed on the cups and the rest with ice.

  • The Biggest Loser Contestants Often Regain the Weight Because Their Metabolism Never Recovers, According to New Study

    While contestants on The Biggest Loser drop an incredible amount of weight in just a few short weeks, that weight loss is often unsustainable and actually harmful to their metabolism, according to a new study. Researchers followed 14 of the contestants from season 8 of The Biggest Loser, including the winner, Danny Cahill, for six years after the show ended. One contestant, Erinn Egbert, who went from 263 lbs. to about 176 lbs. on the show, was able to keep off the weight and now weighs even less, between 152 lbs. and 157 lbs. But she too struggles with a slow metabolism that burns 552 fewer calories a day than is normal for someone her size.
