Pouring on the Pounds!

Don't Drink Yourself Fat. NYC Juice Ad

Drinks are an easy way to consume hundreds or even thousands of extra calories a cartoon porn day. A single bottle of juice often contains about 280 calories, or about as many as a small meal. A Venti Peppermint Mocha with whole milk and whipped cream from Starbucks packs an insane 520 calories! That means you are consuming about a quarter of your daily caloric intake in one drink. Think about that. Drinking that drink every day will lead to gaining about a pound of fat a week! Drink water or low calorie drinks, or if you just have to have that Venti Peppermint Mocha at Starbucks, just make sure you compensate for it by eating less somewhere else.

Eating on the Road

Eating healthy on the road is always challenging. Any time I look for food along a major highway or Interstate, the options are typically limited to the same places and types of food, like pizza, McDonalds, and Roy Rogers. Finding low calorie food is pretty difficult; finding healthy food is next to impossible. Even Subway is high in calories for most 6″ subs and all foot longs.

Your best bet when going on a road trip is to pack some food before you head out. Take some fruit that’s easy to eat on the road (so not a pineapple or watermelon).  Try apples, oranges, grapes, or nectarines. Pack or buy a sandwich or something else healthy that you will actually enjoy eating later. This will save you from grabbing a Big Mac and Medium Fries which pack a whopping 910 calories and 1,230mg of sodium(salt), (and that’s before you add the ketchup – 10 calories and 100mg of sodium per packet!) Considering that you should only consume about 2,000 to 2,500 calories and 1,300 to 2,500mg of sodium a day, that Big Mac mobile porn and fries really hit you hard.
