It’s important to eat healthy and exercise, but it’s equally as important to treat yourself from time to time to something deliciously unhealthy, otherwise a person could go mad with unfulfilled desire. The trick when indulging, however, is to not overdue it with a treat with a caloric value that would take a nonstop week of hitting the treadmill to cancel out.
So the next time you decide to treat yourself to a cold and frosty milkshake before finally bidding adieu to the sweltering summer heat, remember to avoid these ridiculously unhealthy shakes—unless you really only love having a summer body three months out of the year.
