A Virginia woman is crediting her significant weight loss to a diet of Starbucks, according to a Monday report.
Yahoo.com said at 5 feet 4 inches tall, Christine Hall was rejected as a kidney donor because of her weight, which was 200 pounds, two years ago.
Hall, 66, reportedly turned to a local Starbucks.
The article said she would usually have coffee and oatmeal for breakfast, a bistro box of fruit and cheese for lunch, and a panini for dinner.

After two years, Hall reportedly dropped 76 pounds on the diet and said she feels great. See a photo!
