Because of my internship, a request was recently passed on to me to come up with nutrition information for a “Fighting the Freshman 15 and the Grad School 20” article in a local magazine.
So, I checked out some local food venues- places that students here in Morgantown are likely to visit, and came up with the following information. These are foods mostly chosen for the shock factor- and while they might be ok to choose (and perhaps share with a friend!) on occasion, these are obviously not foods that should be chosen every day.
Take a look:
“Gotta Have it” size of the PB&C (Peanut Butter and Chocolate) milkshake has 1750 calories and 118 grams of fat- and that’s not even counting any mix-ins!!!
