The 10 Worst Breakfast Beverages at Fast Food Restaurants

Many people consider breakfast the most important meal of the day, but even if you’re eating right, you could be sabotaging the rest of your day based on your choice of drink. While some people may bask in the glory of taking a few extra minutes to brew a warm pot of coffee at home before racing out the door, others resort to grabbing a cup of joe along the way. Convenient? Yes. Healthy? Not always.

The next time a menu of sweet morning drinks is staring deep into your sleepy eyes, consider how such a calorie-packed drink will affect the rest of your day. If that beverage is packed with fat and sugar, you could be in trouble. Here are 10 of the worst breakfast beverages you can drink.
