Shake Your Way to Weight Gain

The shakes are extreme in caloric values and cannot fit into a healthy weight loss plan. The same applies to regular soda.

Trans Fat Grams

The shakes contain about 1.5 to 2 Trans fat grams, so beware of those as well as the total fat content, and the high caloric values. For a beverage that contains over 1,200 calories - you can eat a lot of healthy food for that amount. This extreme number of beverage kcals is about double the amount of two larger hamburgers and four small hamburgers.

Liquids OR Solids?

The human body doesn't recognize that it's consumed liquids or solids in relationship to energy values. It's going to process these foods based on their caloric content. Just because a food is in liquid form doesn't mean that the body will simply ignore its energy values.

As an example, individuals who are ill or who have difficulty eating food due to a particular health condition are generally given high calorie beverages containing the necessary vitamins for optimum nutrition. When more is consumed than the body needs, the result will be weight gain.

In Summary

There are only a few beverages on the Jack in the Box menu that we can recommend due to the high calories, unhealthy forms of lipids, and the high sugar content.

Those include unsweetened beverages, or the 'diet' drinks.

Better yet - we recommend ordering water to enjoy with your food.
