Food Villains #8: Milkshakes

July 22, 2014 1 min read

Another food item that really hits below the belt! Milkshakes are the love child of milk and ice cream, two of the best products to ever come from a cow. When eating at a diner or an ice-cream parlor, few dishes can match the deliciousness of a wonderful milkshake. Sadly, deliciousness isn't what it's all about! A milkshake is basically liquid sugar and saturated fat, with only a token amount of protein to assuage your guilt. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="620"] Source: standard.co.uk[/caption] Take the PB&C Shake served at Cold Stone Creamery, loaded with:
  • 1,750 calories
  • 140 grams of sugar
  • 700 milligrams of sodium
  • 118 grams of fat
That's WAY more fat than you need to eat in a day, and far too many calories considering that you're no doubt drinking that shake alongside a hefty meal. Worst of all, it's not as filling as you might think, and you'll down your milkshake well before your meal arrives! My advice: Stick with smoothies. (Yoghurt or juice-based smoothies are loaded with nutrients, and they are often far lower in calories than you'd expect!)
