the six important nutrients: 

Nutrient 1: Carbohydrates

Some foods in where you can find Carbohydrate is: Sugars, starches, fruits, veggies, and milk products.

Carbohydrates are our main source of energy for our bodies, it determines how we function and how our muscles work. Carbohydrates are good for preventing "Spikes" Or increasing of blood pressure, and controlling fats, proteins, and metabolism.

You should consume 225 and 325 grams of Carbohydrates daily.

The bad thing about Carbohydrates/Somethings to look out for when consuming this nutrient, is how much you consume, depending how much you put into your body can determine how much weight you gain. Consuming more than the needed amount of Carbohydrates can start turning it into fat rather than a healthy disposal of energy as well.

Fat is something that many people despise, it's what we use to define a lot of things, including ourselves. Although in this case, there's a lot more to fats than a description, it's an important nutrient for our bodies as well.

Nutrient 2: Fats 

A few of the better fats, are unsaturated. Unsaturated fats can help with lower cholesterol levels and slow the risk of heart disease. Fats are simply not something our bodies can create ourselves, they help protect our organs and help "stockpile" other nutrients. Some fats to avoid are trans fats, and saturated fats.  

The six important nutrients: 

You should consume 44-78 grams of fat a day, keeping saturated fats less than 10% of your diet. 

Some bad things that fat can do, is if you consume too much saturated fat you will experience a weight gain, raise cholesterol, and increase the risk of heart disease and stroke.

Strange/interesting fact: Your brain is made out of 60% fat 

The six important nutrients:

Consuming too much protein could result into the extra protein being turned into fat.

Protein has to be what most people enjoy to consume, it's good for you and makes things such as your hair and nails stronger, and is important for functioning. It's practically the power house of our cells. Protein is good for healing broken tissue, it also makes up other chemicals in your body. Protein is a strengthener for bones, muscles, skin blood and cartilage. 

Nutrient 3: Protein 

An interesting fact about Protein is that the world "protein" was derived from the Greek word, "proteios" which means "primary"

You should consume at least 48 grams of protein a day. 

The six important nutrients: 

Nutrient 4: Vitamins

You have probably heard of vitamins such as; "Vitamin A", "Vitamin B", "Vitamin D" and so on. These vitamins are good for your body, Vitamin A for example, is good for you sight. Vitamin B6 is good for stabilizing blood sugar, and fighting disease and sickness. Vitamin C is good for metabolism. Vitamin D is important for growth and  building up immunity and cells, and fighting against inflammation. 

Vitamins are important for a human to work, to get proper vitamins in you means you get good energy and functioning. Vitamins is a group of organic/healthy "compounds" that are necessary for growth and human nutrition. 

A fun fact about vitamins: Every vitamin known today was found within 28 years, the first being Vitamin A.

Consuming way too much of different types of vitamins has different effects depending on which type of vitamin you consume. Here's a website that shows how much you can consume to the max before the symptoms of high vitamins: 

The six important Nutrients: 

What do you first think of when you hear the word, "Minerals." Maybe Mineral water, or perhaps rocks found deep underground. Well, both or correct, but they are also important for us to consume. (Not in rock form, of course.) Minerals are important for growth and health, minerals that are important for a human growth includes; Sodium, water, potassium, Chloride, phosphate, and other types of minerals forged into our foods. 

Nutrient 5: Minerals

Much like Vitamins, consuming too much minerals can have different effects depending what kind of mineral it is. 

About 1 gram a day (1000 milligrams)

Vitamins are good for growth in people, they help our bone strength, regulate our heartbeat, and help our nerve transmission. 

The six important nutrients: 

Water, something that every single human being knows about. We drink it from a day-to-day basis, and it's what keeps our blood pumping. When it's hot out we drink cold water, when we're tired we drink water when we're lightheaded we drink water. Water is what keeps our blood flowing, there really isn't a downside to it. Drinking water improves every day functioning, it helps your blood flow and keep you hydrated. 

Nutrient 6: Water

You should have about 1/5-1 ounce for each pound you weigh, per day.

10 Unhealthiest Vs. Healthiest drinks at Starbucks 

This drink is one of the most sugary, unhealthy drinks from Starbucks. In this drink, there is 410 calories (140 of that being from fat.) 10 grams of saturated fat, 16 grams of fat, 45mg of cholesterol, 230mg of sodium,  62 grams of carbs, and 5 grams of protein. A drink like this may taste good, but all of that sugar and artificial coloring and whatnot is really bad for the body. It causes gain weight, and a lot of inner problems that most people wont be able to see. Feeding your body something like this is very unhealthy, hence why it's put under one of the unhealthiest drink from this store.

Cost: N/A (Not selling them anymore) 

Unicorn Frappuccino


This coffee has 15 calories (not from fats.) There are 0 saturated fats, 0 trans fats, 3 grams of carbs, 1 gram of protein, yet 255mg of caffeine. This coffee doesn't really do anything other than give you the energy boost from drinking it. It's the healthier choice because it doesn't have artificial sweeteners or anything like that.  

Blonde Caffè Americano


10 Unhealthiest Vs. Healthiest drinks at Starbucks 

This drink is also one of the unhealthiest drink on Starbucks list. This drink contains 420 calories (190 of those from fat.) 21 grams of fat (13 grams of saturated fat, and 0.5 of trans fat.) 220 mg of sodium, 53 grams of carbs, 50 grams of sugar, and 6 grams of protein. This is unhealthier because there's more than what should have (if any) of saturated fats, despite that they are under the amount of carbs you should consume, there are still many other unhealthy aspects of this drink such as the fats and the sodium. 


Christmas Tree Frappuccino

This drink is on the healthier side of things because it has 160 calories (non from fat.) It has no Saturated or trans fats, yet 210mg of sodium. It's a bit less than the range of what you should consume of Carbohydrates (This drink contains 36 grams of carbs.) and 34 grams of sugar. and 3 grams of sugar, with 95mg of caffeine. These are less powerful when it comes to your body, it's not as sugary and doesn't work 

Cinnamon Dolce Light Frappuccino


10 unhealthiest vs. healthiest drinks at Starbucks 

The Pokemon GO frappuccino  


This drink made it on the "UnHealthy list" here because it's 450 calories (140 being from fats) with 10 grams of saturated fat, .5 of trans fat, 50mg of cholesterol, 240mg of sodium, 73 grams of carbs, 69 grams of sugar and 3 grams of fiber. I would say this is unhealthy because though it's all under the requirment of how much of each you should consume, it has a lot of the bad fats, the saturated and trans fats are bad for you and there's a lot of sugar in it meaning that your body is consuming a lot of sugar and turning it into fat. though it claims that there are fruits in it, they tint the healthy parts of it by putting in extra syrups and a lot of sugars and bad fats. 

This drink is on my healthier list because it has 180 calories, 41 grams of carbs, 210mg of sodium. I chose this to be more healthy because it doesn't have as much trans fats or bad fats, compared to the other drinks this is one of the healthier drinks on their list.
