Calorie ALERT: How Clueless Are We?!
Just some interesting calorie-related tidbits we've gathered here over at the
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!

Woohoo! ***While the reason why isn't fully understood, it has become
increasingly clear that eating lots of fruits and veggies is a great way to
lower your risk of stroke. 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. It has something to do with
the weight carried in hips and thighs being more conducive to brain growth.
Click for more scoop. Hip hip hooray! ***Hey! 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! Self checkout, anyone? That's all we've got. HG
