It is a harsh reality to think about how long you will have to work out if you indulge in a special treat if you want to stay on track with your workout goals.

The Nutrition Action Health letter quotes these statistics:

1. Five guys fries (620 calories) = bicycle (9mph) for 1 hour, 35 min

2. AMC popcorn, no butter added (410 cal.) = low-impact aerobics for 1 hour, 15 minutes

3. Smoothie King Slim-N-Trim Strawberry smoothy(32 oz. 560 cal.) = doubles tennis for 1 hour, 50 minutes

4. Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Latte, whipped cream (20 oz.- 410 cal.) =jogging for 50 minutes

5. Panera chocolate chip cookie (440 cal.) = brisk walking for 1 hour, 30 minutes

6. Starbuck’s banana loaf (490 cal.) =swimming laps at easy pace for 1 hour, 15 minutes

7. Pinkberry original frozen yogurt (large, 2 cups, 370 cal.) = elliptical machine for 1 hour, 5 minutes

Sobering facts but information allows you to make good choices.  There are times, when a handful of dark chocolate is “worth it” to me, but I know that there is future work that must be done.  It’s a trade-off at times, but for me many times, some silly drink or mediocre tasting fruit bread, just isn’t worth it to me.
