Default 8 Drinks That Will Make You Fat

There are not many people who would select water over a selection of other beverages, the problem is, most of these same people don't realize the volume of calories they are putting in their bodies when they consume these products. Even freshly squeezed juices are very calorie dense. If you are pounding back any of these drinks on a regular basis, cutting them out could do wonders for your waste line without even adding in any exercise!

This list will be from the least calorie dense drinks all the way up to the super calorie dense options. And since I am such a nice guy, I'm even going to suggest a few low calorie alternatives to help give you something to sip on over the day.

8. 7-11 Cola Slurpee

This one seems almost obvious, although, I was shocked to see it this low on the list when compared to some of the other popular drinks.



Slurpee Nutritional Info
Oz: 24
Calories: 210
Fat: 0g
Carbs: 53.9g
Protein:
Sugar: 53.9g
Calories Per oz: 8.75

Alternatives to Slurpees
While I personally love a Slurpee on a hot summers day, one alternative is a home made calorie free Slurpee. Take your blender, mix in roughly 1/2 cup of pre made crystal light, and then add roughly half a tray of ice cubes, more if you want it slushier. Blend the concoction up for a calorie free Slurpee.

7. Pepsi Cola/Coca Cola




Another obvious one near the top of the list is sugar packed sodas such as Coke or Pepsi. Your average 12oz serving has roughly 150 calories! If you drink three cans a day, that's 160200 calories a year which is roughly 45 lbs of PURE FAT!

Pepsi Nutritional Info:
Oz: 12
Calories: 150
Fat: 0g
Carbs: 42g
Protein:
Sugar: 42g
Calories Per oz: 12.50

Alternatives to Pepsi/Coke & Sodas
This is actually a really easy fix if you are willing to make a bit of a change. Switch from Pepsi to Diet Pepsi. The taste might not be that pleasing at first, but after a few weeks, you don't even notice the aftertaste any more. I personally actually prefer diet sodas over regular these days. If you drink diet soda, you are 100% reducing these drink calories from your diet.

6. Fresh Orange Juice




Yes, you are reading this correctly. Juices are jam packed full of calories whether you are drinking apple juice, orange juice or grape juice, they all contain a ton of sugar and a ton of unnecessary calories. If you really just want some vitamin C, take a supplement or eat an actual orange and get some of the fiber to go along with it.

Fresh Orange Juice Nutrition Info
Oz: 12
Calories: 170
Fat: 0.8g
Carbs: 39.2g
Protein: 2.6
Sugar: 31.7g
Calories Per oz: 14.17

Fresh Juice Alternatives:
If you are drinking juice for Vitamins, eat the fruit and get some of the benefits of the fiber. If you are just looking for something that has some flavor, mix up some Crystal Light and enjoy a tasty calorie free drink.

5. Gatorade




If Gatorade is good for athletes it has got to be good for me right? WRONG! Gatorade was developed to help athletes quickly replenish depleted energy sources and as a result is jam packed full of sugar as well as calories. Unless you are performing at a very high level athletically, drinking Gatorade is only going to build your spare tire around your waste.

Gatorade Nutrition Info:
Oz: 12
Calories: 170
Fat: 0.8g
Carbs: 39.2g
Protein: 2.6
Sugar: 31.7g
Calories Per oz: 25.83

Gatorade Alternatives:
If you really want to drink a sports drink, pickup one of Gatorade's new G2 sports drinks. It is a low calorie alternative and won't turn you into an overweight wannabe athlete.

4. Starbucks Mint Chocolaty Chip Frappuccino® blended creme with Chocolate Whipped Cream



Let's face it, you shouldn't be drinking Starbucks Frappuccino's if you are trying to watch your waste line. They are so packed full of calories, you could easily gain a pound a week by drinking a Venti every day! One Frapp stands out in the crowd for being the ultimate weight gainer and that is the 'Mint Chocolaty Chip Frappuccino blended crème with Chocolate Whipped Cream'; try saying that 5 times! This drink is a behemoth with 680 calories in a single 24oz serving. That is an astounding 28.33 calories per oz. If you are planning on dressing up as Santa Clause this winter and don't want to stuff your pants with pillows, this is definitely the daily beverage for you.

Starbucks Mint Chocolaty Chip Frappuccino® blended creme with Chocolate Whipped Cream Nutrition Info
Oz: 24
Calories: 680
Fat: 21g
Carbs: 115g
Protein: 18
Sugar: 93g
Calories Per oz: 28.33

Frappuccino Alternatives:
If you are really feeling the urge to get a blended Frapp from Starbucks, first step is to look at the 'light' section. The next step is to select the Espresso Frappuccino® Light Blended Coffee. A Venti (24oz) serving still has 150 calories, but that is substantially better than its Mint Chocolaty companion. For those who care, the Espresso Frappuccino® Light Blended Coffee packs 6.25 calories per oz.

3. 7-11 French Vanilla Caf Cooler




7-11 got a little upset when Starbucks started stealing their grown up Slurpee customers who wanted blended coffee. So what did they do? They came up with Coffee Slurpees to stir up the competition. Unlucky for us though, these Slurpees come packed with nearly four times the calories of a traditional Slurpee. Check out the nutritional information on these tasty morsels.

7-11 French Vanilla Caf Cooler Nutrition Info:
Oz: 20
Calories: 634
Fat: 27g
Carbs: 97g
Protein: 1.6
Sugar: 97g
Calories Per oz: 31.70

French Vanilla Caf Alternatives:
Honestly, if you have to buy something from 7-11 to replace your French Vanilla Caf Cooler, I would recommend grabbing a cup of coffee, toss a bit of skim milk and some sugar free Vanilla syrup in it. Run over to the Big Gulp machine and toss a few ice cubes in your cup to cool it down and make a chilled beverage. Aside from that, any of the caf coolers are pretty much going to turn you into a fat air balloon.

2. McDonald's Chocolate Triple Thick Shake




Leave it to McDonalds to have the second most fattening drink that I have ever seen. If you've ever tasted their Chocolate Triple Thick Shake, you would know instantly that there is no way something with so much creamy tasty flavor could ever be good for you. This calorie behemoth could help you pack on as much as two pounds of fat a week when combined with your normal diet. Pretty impressive huh?

Chocolate Triple Thick Shake Nutrition Info:
Oz: 32
Calories: 1160
Fat: 27g
Carbs: 203g
Protein: 27
Sugar: 168g
Calories Per oz: 36.25

Chocolate Triple Thick Shake Alternatives:
If you really want to drink a Chocolate milk shake, you are looking at a calorie dense beverage no matter what way you 'shake' it. If you want to make something that is at least somewhat healthy for you, blend 1/2 cup skim milk with 2 scoops chocolate whey protein and half a tray of ice. It will taste like a chocolate milk shake with way less sugar, but you still can't avoid the calories.

1. Bubble Tea with Milk and Tapioca Pearls




Bubble Tea is an Asian drink that has many variations these days. The original Bubble Tea came from Taiwan and was a combination of Black tea, condensed milk, honey and pearls (tapioca balls). These days, the black tea and condensed milk can be substituted with fruity teas or milky fruit teas, all of which are jam packed with gut producing calories. A standard Bubble Tea with milk and pearls contains roughly 510 calories in just a 12 oz serving. If you just broke out your calculator you would now know that Bubble tea can contain 42.50 calories per oz! What does that mean for you? It means that Bubble Tea is a one way ticket to Obesity Boulevard.

Bubble Tea with Milk and Tapioca Pearls Nutritional Info:
Oz: 12
Calories: 510
Fat: 20.4g
Carbs: 79.05g
Protein: .6
Sugar: ?g
Calories Per oz: 42.50

Bubble Tea Alternatives:
Alright, this one you are going to have to suck up and just stop drinking. There is absolutely no reason why you need to eat Tapioca balls and condensed milk on a daily basis. Hit up your grocery store and grab a couple boxes of black and green tea. Not only will it save your health, it will also save you some money.

510 calories is two small meals, or one large meal.

It's so fucking ridiculous to see people piling these and similar drinks away (yes, I'm making mention of the similar drinks because SOME people will read this article and think "If it's not on the list it can't be that bad"... as asinine as that thought process is).

What is EQUALLY ridiculous is the fact that people seldom have these gut-growers alone. They usually combine 'em with some other high-calorie crap: brownies, cookies... a meal.

It's insane.

Then I hear 'I can't understand why I've gained so much weight (or: can't lose the weight)... I don't eat much!"

Smh.

1200 calories in one fucking shake.

I know chicks who have our local equivalent of the thick shake along with fried chicken, nuggets, and fries as a normal lunchtime/nighttime fare.

Yet they can't understand why their waistline is constantly expanding.

Mind you...1200 calories, plus a couple hundred more to factor in activity is a day's worth of calories for an average female.

Why would anyone think it makes sense to put a day's worth of calories in a shake...add it to a meal of fatty shit...and do that a couple times per day?

Anyone?

Epic stupidity.

Awesome post. Thanks for sharing. Everyone should be aware with these drinks. I will try to avoid these drinks because these drinks cause fat. This information is totally new for me.
