#2 Hot chocolate
While you may already know that hot chocolate is unhealthy, you probably are not aware of just how ridiculous the ingredients can be.
In general, the hot chocolate that you can buy in coffee shops will be exceptionally bad for you in all possible senses.
For example, the Starbucks Venti 2% Salted Hot Chocolate provides you with a staggering 760 calories, which is more than some people consume in a dinner portion.
In addition, this drink contains 22g of saturated fat (which is more than you should have in an entire day), and 85g of sugar. To top it all off, the 380mg of sodium makes the Salted Hot Chocolate entirely unsuitable for those who are concerned about heart health and maintaining low blood pressure.
While this particular hot chocolate is an extreme example, its nutritional content should serve as a wakeup call about the true nature of these sweet drinks.
If you want a drink that satisfies your urge for a chocolate flavor, look out for diet hot chocolate sachets that often contain less than 100 calories and very little sugar. If you make them with hot water instead of milk, you can enjoy a hot chocolate without the guilt.
