Milkshake containing 2,010 calories - equivalent to 30 chocolate chip cookies - has topped the list of the 20 worst drinks in the US, a new report says. 

Previous studies had pointed out the stronger impact of liquid calorie intake on weight changes, stressing that limiting these calories can contribute to a considerable weight loss in short term. 

Despite strong recommendations regarding the need to limiting liquid calorie intake, the use of sugar-sweetened beverages is becoming more popular among adults. 

According to the list published in Men's Health, a single milkshake drink fulfills a woman's daily calorie intake and falls a few calories short of the 2,500 calorie allowance in men. 

While health experts recommend the maximum use of 20 grams of saturated fat per day, milkshake made with peanut butter, chocolate ice cream and milk contains 68 grams of saturated fat and 153 grams of sugar. 

Other fattening drinks on the list include smoothie with 1,498 calories equal to 20 chocolate and peanut butter snacks, and chocolate shake with 1,160 calories equivalent to 13 hot apple pies.
