You’ve finished another grueling workout and want to reward yourself with a healthy treat, so naturally you head to your gym’s smoothie bar to grab something. However, just because a food is sold at a health club does not mean it’s healthy! Many smoothies prepared and sold at the gym are made from sugar concentrates combined with highly processed protein powders and vegetable oils — and typically dumped into a 20- to 24-oz. cup that allow you to easily suck down 600-1,000 calories in just a few minutes….nearly twice the calories you probably burned during your workout! If you’re going to grab something try to make sure it is prepared using fresh ingredients.
Have you spotted any hidden dangers at your gym?
