What are our daily addictions doing to our mid-section?

Can you imagine eating 9 rice crispy treats? They're the equivalent of a Starbucks White Hot Chocolate with whipped cream. A McDonald’s Triple Thick Chocolate Shake will set you back as many calories as 13 McDonald's baked apple pies.

Those drinks might not surprise you; McDonald's and Starbucks haven't exactly built reputations as guardians of your health. But there are others that might.A Rockstar Energy drink, for example, packs the nutritional equivalent of six Krispie Kreme glazed donuts. An Arizona kiwi-strawberry drink? Six bowls of Fruit Loops. And the worst drink in America? Drumroll please...Cold Stone Creamery's PB&C. In terms of fat and calories, you might as well eat 30 Chips Ahoy cookies. And if we're talking saturated fats, the heart-attack-in-a-cup is tantamount to 68 strips of bacon. Go here and see for yourself.
