This week's "winner"... the Banana Split!
Whoever invented the banana split, I want to shake that guy's hand. Or gal. This irresistible combination of ice cream, banana, chocolate sauce, crushed nuts, whipped cream, and maraschino cherries packs up to 1,000 calories, 350 from fat, 560 from sugar (some of it lactose), and 48 from protein.
Individually, the main ingredients in a banana split can be part of a healthy diet in moderation (bananas, cream, nuts, chocolate, even a little bit of sugar). Add them together, and you have something so irresistible it can lead to substantial overeating, even immediately after a full meal. A few bites of a banana split isn't going to hurt you. But who can stop after only a few bites? I certainly can't.
