Drinking Yourself Fat.

Posted By on Tue, Dec 30, 2008 at 12:06 AM


Few would argue that of the two drinks shown above, the Baskin Robbins Heath Bar Shake contains more calories.  But which of these is the healthy alternative?

A recent Men's Health article says neither one.  While the shake above contains more than 2000 calories (more than is recommended for consumption by an individual in a single day), the VitaminWater contains 33 grams of sugar -- about as much as you'll find in your average soda. 

If weight loss is among your New Year's Resolutions, you might check out this article, which lists the "20 Unhealthiest Drinks in America."  Certainly has me thinking that I want to stick to my plain unsweetened iced tea.
