_______________________________________________

It’s that time of year, it’s getting chilly and we all want Starbucks, just don’t get this…

The Caffe Mocha with soy milk and no whipped cream has 34 grams of sugar. That’s over one daily serving of sugar. You also have to think that this drink doesn’t have whipped cream. Its very high in sugar yet it doesn’t have all the extra stuff and flourishes. So next time you go to Starbucks and get a drink, make a healthier choice.

That’s right I’m flipping the saying, want to know why?

Halloween is a time to celebrate… not if you pass out for over dosing sugar. Every year Americans buy 600 million pounds of candy for Halloween!  That’s the equivalent of 6 Titanic ships! Imagine how much the average American eats every Halloween. Well the answer to that is 3.4 pounds.  The most popular being M&Ms, which has 31 grams of sugar per regular bag. So this Halloween think, is it a treat or a trick!

Ghirardelli Chocolate Chips are Bittersweet?

__________________________________________________________

Ghirardelli chocolate chips are mini and delicious. The whole bag can be gone in a minute with some of the chocoholics out there.

These mini chips might seem a little too sweet for you, considering the amount you can eat, but your mind will change when you find out the nutrition. That’s right! 115 chips only have 8 grams of sugar! Plus, there is about 7 one hundredths of sugar in each chip! Since when has chocolate become more healthy?

Milkshakes are a creamier drink than others. Its sweet, sugary, and totally cravable!

If you want an 18 oz milkshake, Do Not Go To McDonald’s, because their Triple Thick Shake has a whopping 546 grams of sugar in an 18 oz cup! Look for yourself by visiting this site and changing the serving size to 18 ounces.

The Secret Behind Whipped Cream

 

I bet you have done this and might have felt guilty about it.

But actually there is less than one gram of sugar in one serving. Jaques won’t have to worry about the sugar amount.

What he does need to worry about is getting addicted to highly toxic Nitrous oxide — which is the gas used to shoot the whipped cream into his mouth!

Some effects of it is nausea, vomiting, dizziness, numbness, slurred speech, confusion, hallucinations and fainting. Oh and did I mention that those are just the short-term effects of Nitrous oxide. Some long-term effects are: damage to the heart tissues, an irregular heartbeat, nerve damage, and bone marrow suppression.

The main danger is that it deprives the brain of oxygen, which could lead to fainting, comas, or death.

But it’s not ALL bad:  It is used in dental or surgical uses.  You may know it as “laughing gas“. Granted that is given to you by trained doctors, so it’s probably safe then. Plus your probably not going to get addicted if you do this every now and again, but don’t say I didn’t warn you. At least you won’t have to worry about diabetes!

When you go to the grocery store, you see tons of candies in the checkout aisles. You dream of the sweet sensation of a Hershey Milk Chocolate Bar.

Before you take out your wallet, think twice about buying this chocolate killer. One average bar has one day’s worth of sugar. You will regret this decision. Chocolate is sweet and savory but the nutrition is deadly! Chocolate is whack, get on the right track!

Mr. Ferriter gave this sugary treat to Reece, his daughter, without looking at the nutrition label. This is what a bad parent would do!

As you know from other posts,  an average human is supposed to eat 24 grams of sugar a day. Did you know that Chili’s serves 104 grams of sugar in one Molten Chocolate Cake.

Isn’t that crazy!

That is 80 grams more sugar than you should have in an entire day. What’s even crazier is that if you split it up between four people, you would STILL eat 26 grams of sugar, which is 2 grams than the limit!

Have you ever been to Starbucks and wanted a tasty pastry to go with your coffee?

Starbucks has a array of pastry including chocolate croissants. The chocolate croissants at Starbucks has 10 grams of sugar wasting almost half your daily amount of sugar. Now ask yourself this question, how much sugar were you planing to eat today? How much sugar did you just have on your little ‘harmless’ stop to Starbucks?

Have you ever been to a restaurant were they give you a cookie with your meals?

At some restaurants they have combo meal deals and some come with cookies. At subway they have cookies that you can chose to come with your meal, while you may not know that those cookies actually have 18 grams of sugar in one cookie. So, is your combo meal deal really a deal?
