The equation is simple: Calories in versus calories out. After your hard workout, you have gained the right to treat yourself to a snack.
It is difficult to get the math right. It’s far too easy to overestimate how many calories we’ve burned and to underestimate the calories in our snack. The truth is that many people (up to 68%) actually put on weight.
1 Hour swimming burns 772 calories – about 5 twelve ounce cans of Coke Cola.
1 hour of cycling burns about 700 calories – about 3 yummy doughnuts.
Running 1 hour burns about 1,000 calories – about 1 Big Mac and fries.
Party time 1 hour dancing burns about 400 calories – 3 glasses of wine.
1 hour setting at your computer – burns of about 1/3 of a candy bar or 4 pringles chips.
Sex 1 hour burns the calories contained in 1.2 ounces of cheese for women and 1.8 ounces for men.
Mmmm according to most girls/women, men must burn about 1 teaspoon(16 sugar calories) in such an intense experience.
Grin … do the math ‘Before’ you treating yourself to that ‘after’ activity event.
Country life is a good life.
