So once 10pm comes around, I usually need a pick-me-up...like a sugar pick-me-up to keep me going until midnight! I'm not proud to say that I've had all of these out of the vending machine at work....:(
Skip: Lay's Potato Chips Serving: 1 7/8 oz Calories: 280 Forget this greasy salt bomb! To prevent rancidity, food industries use BHT--a fat-soluble chemical also used in petroleum products. What's more is Lay's have 50 percent more volume and calories than the standard 1 ounce serving.
Skip: Famous Amos Chocolate Chip Cookies Serving: 3 oz Calories: 50 Chocolate chip cookies will never top a nutrition list, but they sure taste good. Its portions are the problem, so share with a couple of friends. Mini Chips Ahoy aren't any better either, costing you 270 calories for 2 oz.
Skip: Snickers bar Serving: 2.07 oz Calories: 280 As convincing as Betty White is in those Snickers commercials, candy bars do little to surge energy. Why? Sugar tends to break down so fast that, after providing a short-lived burst of energy, they leave your blood sugar levels low.
Skip: Skittles Serving: 61 grams Calories: 250 As much as you want to taste the rainbow, Skittles are more than 2 ounces of pure sugar and not much else. Plus, that sticky residue left behind is the primary cause of gum disease and cavities.
Skip: Entenmann's Jumbo Iced Honey Bun Serving: 1/2 Bun Calories: 330 Even the package describes a serving as half a bun. Don't pick up that Pop-Tart, either. All you'll be eating is refined white flour stripped of its nutrients, sugar, corn syrup, and artificial preservatives.
