Are you feeling guilty about eating that burger last night? Wondering exactly how long you’re going to have to spend on the ‘orbitron’ to burn it off (that’s what one of my old clients called the eliptical … you know who you are). Whatever the case, I thought you all might find interesting a piece of an article I submitted to EzineArticles.com a few days ago:
“Here’s an example of the average calorie burn of a few common activities one might choose for exercise – this is based on a individual that weighs 155 pounds:
Aerobics, general: 211
Bicycling, stationary, moderate effort: 247
Calisthenics (pushups, sit-ups), vigorous effort: 282
Running, 6 mph (10 min mile): 352
Weight lifting or body building, vigorous effort: 211 … “
Not bad … but the point was that it’s a lot easier to consume too many calories than it is to burn them off … I’ll bet many of you consume two to three thousand calories when you go out to eat. Much better – and easier – to just have a little self restraint and save yourself and extra hour on the treadmill trying to burn off that Double Double from In’n'Out … well, actually, the burger might be worth it every once in a while. Just a little food for thought (pun intended). Let me know what you think – also, check out the article in it’s entirety at EzineArticles.com.
