Burning Off High Calorie Foods: Summer Picnics
Gearing up for grilling season? Don’t let too many high-cal favorites keep you from staying trim this summer. Here’s what you should keep in mind at your next picnic.
Everyone burns calories a little differently, the values below are averages based on a 155-pound person.
1 ear of corn with butter = 200 calories = 1 hour 20 minutes pushing a baby stroller
1 serving strawberry shortcake = 325 calories = 45 minutes of doubles tennis
No need to call off that family picnic. There are some things you can do.
- Watch the servings of alcohol and other high calorie beverages – those calories count too.
- Pick and choose – check out all the offerings and decide what you really want before you dig in.
- Spread the love – really want to try both of those desserts? Share! That’s what friends are for.
