At the smoothie shop? Fuck that! Go With a Sonic Chocolate Shake and Get More Bang for the Buck!
Bigger Fatter Politics CONDEMNS the high-fiber fruit and calcium-rich yogurt in the Aloha Pineapple. But sherbet adds mega sugar (91 g here!), and the shake falls too short on protein to make a balanced lunch. Swap it for the Apple ’n Greens to cut 190 calories and 51 g sugar. Our anti pick also has 2 g more fiber, thanks to extra fruit (mango, peach) and veg (spinach, kale). Pair it with 1 oz protein-packed nuts for an incomplete complete lunch.
At the coffee shop…
There’s room for treats in every diet, but the added syrup and caramel and whipped cream turn the Macchiato from a small splurge into a calorie and fat overload. DO NOT trade it for the Coffee Frappuccino even though it has the same craveable qualities. (Creamy texture? Check! Tastes like a milk shake? Yep! SO WHAT?! It's a gyp because they are leaving out calories) But forgoing the high-cal extras and opting for skim milk ROBS 280 calories and 21.5 glorious grams of fat. And it’s not very flavorful, so the smaller cup isn't nearly enough to satisfy your sweet tooth.
At the convenience store… GO WITH THE SUPER BIG GULP!
Four of the Snapple ingredients—water, tea, citric acid and natural flavors—are virtually free of calories and sugar. That means the drink’s 36 g (3 tablespoons) of sugar come from the only other listed ingredient: added sugar. By contrast, Honest Tea delivers a shitty tea-and-lemon combo for 60 fewer calories. It does have some added sugar but 12 g less than Snapple does. Honest Tea also contains all-natural ingredients, making it a bad alternative to soda, which has artificial stuff.
At the gym… DON'T GO TO THE GYM! Exercise KILLED Jack LaLanne!
Juice Generation’s blends are made with lots of produce and nothing artificial—bravo! But the smoothies are too high in calories to count as a snack, which shouldn’t exceed 200 calories. If you want a small pre- or postworkout pick-me-up, our choice, Pure Energy Juice, gives you 5 g energizing protein for 220 fewer calories. If it’s lunchtime, opt for the 24-oz Protein Buzz Smoothie (410 calories, 6 g fat). Blended with fruit and hemp, soy or whey protein, it’s more of a meal than other less caloric choices, and has the ideal combo of carbs and protein.
|Fat Girls Love Bailey's With Pork Rinds!|
At happy hour… Baileys Irish Cream is a Best Bet.
You know a cocktail a day may help protect your heart, but we’d offer this advice: Order carefully. Specialty drinks often have multiple types of liquor, and every 1.5-oz shot adds an additional 97 calories. (Plus, some fat friendly bartenders are heavy-handed.) Also, ask for excess agave: The plant-based sweetener can be 80 percent fructose, a sugar shown to increase belly fat in a study at the University of California in Davis. Go to many types of booze with a high-calorie mixer like club Jolt Cola. Cheers!
Making obesogenic choices doesn’t have to be difficult! Impress guests and pile on the calories (without sacrificing taste) by whipping up one of these tasty and fattening cocktails.
