Food and Exercise Needed

Postby Ally » Tue Dec 12, 2006 10:16 am

This was also in the Australian Healthy Food Mag it certainly makes you think twice about what we put in our mouths!!! An interesting fact on What's Good For You the other night...Jogging is the best exercise for losing weight due to its intensity. You would need to do double the amount of walking to gain the same amount of fat burn!!...the two areas below that are asterisked mean that for the large fast food burger meal, you would have to do 4 hours of walking as this is equivalent to 2 hours jogging...blimey!!!!

Food / Kilojoules / Extra Exercise Needed

1 large fast food meal (burger, chips & soft drink) = 4500 = *2 hours of jogging*

Can of soft drink = 660 = 1 hour walk

300ml bottle fruit juice = 460 = 40 minutes vacuuming

1 slice thick crust Supreme Pizza
= 850 = 30 minutes swimming

Potato or corn chips 50g
= 1050 = *30 minutes jogging*

Chocolate bar 60g
= 1090 = Over ½ hour on step machine

Large milkshake/smoothie
= 1480 = 1 ½ hrs brisk walking

Large muffin
= 2300 = 1 ½ hours aerobics

LOL thanks Ally sure makes you think. No burger and chips is worth 2 hours jogging. I figure if I want the burger and chips I have to cop the calories on the chin....or wherever else they end up! :shock:
