In today’s culture, finding foods that will benefit your body is much harder than finding foods that will destroy it. The majority of items are ridden with chemicals and ingredients that cause a myriad of health problems.

Most Fattening Foods Revealed
1. Smoothie King Hulk Strawberry Smoothing
When you think smoothies you picture fruits, ice, vegetables, but we often forget about the creams and sugars that many of them include. When choosing a smoothie be sure to take a look at the calorie count, and ask about the ingredients. This particular Smoothie King treat contains 1,044 calories, 35 grams of fat, and 120 grams of sugar.
2. Auntie Anne’s Jumbo Pretzel Dog
Walking around a mall for hours is tiring. We typically stop at the food court, or a kiosk to grab a snack. Auntie Anne’s may seem like a good option when compared to McDonald’s or Chinese food. It all depends upon what you order. The Jumbo Pretzel Dog might be appealing because it looks like it will do well to satisfy your hunger. However, this item should be avoided, as it contains 610 calories, 29 grams fat, 13 grams saturated fat and 1,150 mg sodium.
3. Dunkin’ Donuts’ Coffee Cake Muffin
Many of us stop at Dunkin’ Donuts on a daily basis as part of our pre-work routine. Grabbing a black coffee is one thing, choosing something off of the menu is whole other story. Take, for example, their Coffee Cake Muffin. This seems like a pretty average thing to eat. In reality one of these muffins contains 620 calories, 25g fat, 7g saturated, 54g sugar and 93g carbs.

5. Haagen Dazs’ Dolce de Leche Low-Fat Frozen Yogurt
Looking for something sweet to soothe a craving? Don’t be fooled by terms such as “low-fat” or “frozen yogurt”.
