This Is Not A Health Drink!

Today Yahoo News is featuring more of their "Eat this not that" lists, and usually it is so painfully obvious to anyone with a brain, that I can't even believe people still eat this crap-especially that they think it is healthy. Here are some examples from Men's Health.

Worst Frozen Fruit Drink

Krispy Kreme Lemon Sherbet Chiller (20 fl oz)
980 calories
40 g fat (36 g saturated)
115 g sugars (29 teaspoons of the stuff!)

Sugar Equivalent: 16 medium-size chocolate eclairs

Imagine taking a regular can of soda, pouring in 18 extra teaspoons of sugar, and then swirling in half a cup of heavy cream!

Now if Krispy Kreme is in the title, how could anyone think this crap is healthy? Really people? Use your brain!

Worst “Health” Drink in America
Smoothie King Peanut Power Plus Grape (large, 40 fl oz)
1,498 calories
44 g fat (8 g saturated)
214 g sugars (a mind-blowing 54 teaspoons' worth!)

Sugar Equivalent: 20 Reese's Peanut Butter Cups!

I don't know what a "Smoothie King" is, but the name just sounds like a heart attack waiting to happen!

It is like people that suck down 2-3 bottles of vitamin water at 100 calories per serving every day and wonder why they're chubby! Hrm? I wonder.

Lemme let you in on some clues and not secrets that most of America doesn't seem to know!

Eating fast food of any kind is NOT healthy! No, having only one piece of KFC or one Whopper does NOT mean you are eating healthy.

Soda is NOT healthy, never, ever. Stop drinking that crap, it'll kill you.

Having deep fried vegetables does NOT mean you are eating your vegetables.

Eating any kind of smoothie at a place like Krispy Kreme, and or McDonald's, any place you can drive through is NOT healthy.

Ordering vegetables with your dinner, but pushing them to the side, does NOT count as eating them.

Bacon is not it's own food group, and is NOT healthy.

I mean, really people, do you not know anything?

It amazes me that people are now making millions of dollars telling people what not to eat! Why didn't I think of this years ago?

Oh because I figured most people have common sense.


  1. Haha, I read these all the time, but I don't know why. These "studies" are just keepin' some people in business. They have to put something out there, even if it's obvious.

  2. These are the eatables that will tickle your taste buds but cant be incorporated in your regular meal. They should be used once in a while.
