If this drink has tempted you in the past, knowing what lurks inside might deter you from indulging in this treat. “This shake has around half a day’s calories, an entire day’s worth of fat, and over 3x the recommended daily amount of sugar,” Dr. Avena said.
If you live an active lifestyle, have no fear when you approach this drink. “Splurging on a treat like this once in a while will not likely have any major impact on your health, especially if you are young and in relatively good shape,” Dr. Avena continued. “However, consuming these on a regular basis can add up and will cause weight gain and other health issues.”
If you feel like treating yourself right, feel free to grab this monster of a milkshake. Those of us who need to watch our sugar levels or calorie intake should tread lightly around this dessert and really make sure to save this drink for when our actual birthday rolls around.
