GET READY TO WORK
I was able to find some info on Thanksgiving dinner so If you’ve ever wondered how many calories we eat on average and how long it takes to burn them off… Here you go.
Accounting for appetizers and desserts, the average American consumes a little over 3,000 calories and 150 grams of fat in a Thanksgiving meal, according to the Calorie Control Council.
Keep in mind this is without going back for seconds! Who doesn’t go back for seconds? To be more accurate lets say most people go back for a third of a plate or add one more dessert and end up at 4000 calories. How long does it take to burn that off?
According to the Mayo Clinic, a person weighing 160 pounds, jogging at about 5 miles per hour, will burn 606 calories per hour. To zero out your 4,000 calorie meal, you’re going to have to jog for six hours and 36 minutes.
I just realized this blog was not a good idea. My bad! LOL
