Tip of the Week

Roll with the punches! Life is gonna smack you right in the face when you don't expect it. If you're head's on straight, you're certainly gonna handle it just fine. Roll with it. Complain a little bit, and let it go.

Truth Tuesday: February 2, 2010

Hey Guys--I HAD to post this. Isn't it ridiculous? Did you know that Americans consume 140 pounds of sugar, ALONE, every year? WOW.
PS--these are always from the Eat This, Not That! webpage.

Cold Stone BP&C Shake

"Gotta Have It" size

153 g sugars

2,010 calories

131 g fat (68 g saturated, 2.5 g trans)

880 mg sodium

There's no such thing as a healthy milkshake, but there are varying degrees of bad. Unfortunately, this belly-bloating beverage takes unhealthy to the extreme.

It contains as much sugar as an entire 15-ounce box of Chewy Chips Ahoy! Cookies!

It's also the only drink in America to stretch across the 2,000-calorie mark.

The combination of peanut butter, good in small amounts- horrendous when liquefied in bathtub-size quantities -and chocolate ice cream, outpaces even the worst cookie-and-candy-strewn shakes that clutter Cold Stone's embarrassing shake menu.

Suck this thing down and you've just blasted away a day's worth of calories and more than 3 days' worth of saturated fat.
