Working off bad eating habits.
It’s a common thought.
” I worked out today, I can have those french fries”
“MMMM, ice cream… I’ll go to the gym tomorrow.”
Everybody wants to believe that a hardcore workout will carry you through a day of dietary indiscretions.
Sadly, it’s not true. I know, I’m sorry, it took me a long time to accept the truth as well but there it is. Dry your eyes now; let’s go over some numbers.
A normal 50 minute workout at Bonza Bodies Small Group Fitness Studio in downtown Denver, 80202, burns anywhere between 400-600 calories. That may sound like a lot and in fairness that is one heck of a workout! But even that won’t help your waistline when it comes to your nightly bowl of ice cream.
It’s hard for a lot of people to fathom how hard it is to actually work off the calories we consume. As Americans we consume a huge amount of calories on a daily basis, most of us consume more than we need in a day. Hence, the growing obesity problem here, in the U.S. Click the link below to find out how much walking you have to do to work off the calories in one M&M. Or how many squats you have to do in one minute to work off one tater tot.
So what does this all mean? Does it mean a french fry can never cross your lips again? Does it mean your tongue can never swirl around an ice cream cone again? Nope, it doesn’t (okay it maybe actually should but, baby steps here). It means that your food choices should be a conscious decision. Don’t just eat what’s put in front of you! Don’t mindlessly order the super deluxe cheeseburger with a large side of fries! Look at your options, we have a ton of them. Get the cheeseburger if you must but think about how your jeans and waistline will thank you when you order it with a side salad or steamed broccoli! The foods we so often have a staple in our daily diets should be a treat, like seriously, once monthly. So put down the breaded chicken wing and ranch dressing and get in touch with the flavors real food has to offer. I promise you’ll like it better ;-).
“In some countries we need food that saves lives, in this country we need food that saves waistlines.”-anonymous. As it turns out we have plenty of food here that will save our waistlines, we just either ignore it or don’t know how to use it.
