Ice cream by itself is hard on most diets, but when it is used to make a delicious fast food milkshake,
the fat and calorie figures become staggering.
A restaurant milkshake will pack on far more calories than a dessert of a fudge sundae
or a cup of ice cream of exactly the same size.
A large (32 oz) Chocolate Triple Thick Shake from McDonald’s has 1,160 calories and 27 g of fat.
A large Strawberry Hand Spun Shake from Burger King has 820 calories and 23 g of fat.
A large (24 oz) Chocolate Ice Cream Shake from Jack in the Box has 1,147 calories and 55 g of fat!
Drinking as few as two milkshakes each week could lead to a net gain of two to three pounds in a month.
