Are YOU Calorie-Challenged?
Calorie ALERT: How Clueless Are We?!
Just some interesting calorie-related tidbits we've gathered here over at the HG HQ...
1. According to exercise physiologists, people WILDLY overestimate how many calories they burn during exercise. Many people don't pay attention to the information that's often provided on the machines in front of them at the gym. You must input your weight to get the accurate amount of calories burned -- and to be fair, you really should subtract the number of calories you'd burn doing nothing for that same period of time (about 50 - 100 calories per hour, depending on your weight and other factors).
2. Exercise makes people HUNGRY. And since people often think they've burned more calories than they really have, they can end up consuming more calories than they've burned! So don't use a workout as an excuse to pig out. Bad idea. BTW, studies have shown that exercisers overeat the most after a swimming workout. Interesting.
3. Most people grossly underestimate how many calories their meals contain, especially when dining out. Couple that with them overestimating how many calories they're BURNING, and there's a recipe for disaster!
Be careful out there, people!

And if you want to know all there is to know about fruits and veggies, check out produceguru.com -- it ROCKS! ***We're not sure if this is actually true, but new research suggests that curvy women may actually be smarter than non-curvy types.

If you do nothing else except IGNORE all the goodies at the register when you check out at supermarkets and stores like Target, you could actually shed some pounds. According to a recent study, women purchased and consumed 14,300 calories' worth of impulse items over a one-year period, most of which they snatched up while waiting in line to pay. Yowsa!
