The gamer diet, a 2 liter bottle of Mt. Dew and a family sized bag of Doritos. Even though the meal may sound good, it is anything but.
To start of a regular sized bottle (12 fl oz) of the Dew has 46.3 grams of sugar! Now you may think that that alone is ridiculous and you would be right, because, that is practically all the sugar in this combo. That is because a bag of Doritos (11 oz) has only a tiny 1 gram of sugar.
This combo may not be as bad if you were to go on a run or play a sport, but, gamers can’t sacrifice their precious time on unimportant things like that. I mean, those levels aren’t going to complete themselves!
They have a good variety of foods and it’s very accurate. It’s also mind blowing how much sugar there is in average foods. One of the coolest parts of this is that if you scroll down you see how you blew the sugar, you can see how much sugar is in each piece of food.
I had some members at Sugar Kills and Kiva try this and there was a big variety of amounts. Some had 10 grams, another had 46 grams, one even had as high as 151 grams of sugar! I personally got 25 grams of sugar, but something tells me that we all won’t follow that exactly.
You may be asking, “What is this fiber and how does it make a smoothie better?” Basically, fiber is a carbohydrate your body cannot break down, so because of that it leaves your body feeling much fuller. When you make juice, although you get a lot of nutrients, you don’t get the filling fiber, making you want more food.
So basically, both are fairly healthy choices, but if you want to be filled, smoothies are you best choice.
One serving of Minute Maid Lemonade has 44 grams of sugar. That’s almost twice the amount sugar a person should have in a day. It’s high in sugar, so next time you drink a glass of lemonade, remember; it’s not as great as you think.
The weather is getting cold (except in the southern hemisphere) and the snow is starting to fall.
We are all in our houses, snuggled up in blankets, drinking our hot chocolate…but are we going to start looking like Santa if we keep it up? It turns out in a 12 oz drink of Hot-Cocoa there is actually 36 grams of sugar.
That is over the daily recommended amount and half of the next days sugar in just one mug of hot chocolate!
24 grams of sugar is the amount that your supposed to have in a day. All of these shakes are about 4-5 days worth of sugar. When you add them all up, you get a total of 404 grams of sugar, which equals 101 grams on average of sugar per shake. I hope next time you want a shake, you don’t choose Chick-Fil-A. Make a healthier choice.
It may sound somewhat appetizing, and a good treat for the holiday’s, but in my experience with this drink, I just tasted straight up chocolate.
After further research, I found out that it has 52 GRAMS OF SUGAR plus 20 grams of fat! So take my advice, and never get this drink because of the amount of sugar. Plus, it’s a waste of money, and you can make it yourself with less sugar at home.
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.
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.
