Yahoo ran an article titled “Diet Busting Foods you Should Avoid”. They said in this article: “A 2,000-calorie-a-day diet should have no more than 66 grams of fat, less than 20 grams saturated; 2,400 milligrams of sodium; and 300 grams of total carbohydrate, including sugars.” They describe in this article bad foods such as:
a) A 20 oz smoothie that has 1044 calories, 35g fat and 120g of sugar
b) 20 oz Grande that has 510 calories, 19g fat and 16g of sugar
c) Milkshake that has 2010 calories, 131g fat (68g saturated) and 153g sugar
d) A pretzel dog that has 610 calories, 29g fat (13g saturated) and 1,150mg sodium
e) Cinnamon Pecan Bun that has 1092 calories, 56g fat and 47g sugar
