Despite your efforts to stay true to your healthy eating plan, there’s a long list of foods that can easily sabatoge you, even when you’re trying your best to be good. Here’s a short list of five that really surprised me:
1. Venti Starbucks Peppermint White Chocolate Latte
You knew Starbucks drinks were high in calories. But I’ll bet you didn’t know it was this bad: The highest calorie content of all Starbucks drinks, the Venti Peppermint White Chocolate Latte comes in at 660 calories and 22 grams of fat. That could be more than half a day’s worth of calories!
2. Chipolte Burrito
A chicken burrito from Chipolte with rice, pinto beans, corn salsa, cheese, and sour cream has 1050 calories, 11 grams of carbs, and 40 grams of fat. If you’re a Chipolte fan, this could be bad news. Here is a pretty cool calculator that can help you make better choices next time you build your own burrito.
Thought tortilla chips were a healthy alernative? Think again. For example, adding a bag of chips from Chipolte to your burrito adds another 570 calories and 27 grams of fat to your meal!
This one might not be that big of a surprise. But I’ll bet you didn’t know just how high the calorie content of some popular beers can be – one 12oz bottle of Sierra Nevada Bigfoot contains 330 calories! Even a bottle of Samuel Adams Boston Lager comes in at 180.
5. Denny’s Breakfasts
As someone who enjoys grabbing a breakfast out every once in a while, looking through nutrtional data for meals at places like Denny’s and IHOP was admittingly a little depressing. Here’s one that stood out: The All-American Slam from Denny’s has 1028 calories and 87 grams of fat!
Moral of the story is to pay attention to what you’re eating! Keeping a food log is one of the best ways to keep yourself in check.
