Unhealthy Lunch? Here’s How to Burn It Off

unhealthy-lunchThe American Dietetic Association tells us that a typical workday lunch can really take a toll, especially if you’re trying to watch your weight. Check these out.

  • A 6-inch Subway Melt with turkey, ham, bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, green peppers, cucumbers and honey mustard sauce on wheat contains 400 calories. Burning it off requires 30 minutes of vigorous biking or 78 minutes of gardening.
  • Enjoy a McDonald’s Quarter Pounder with Cheese and you’ll need to run at 6 mph for 27 minutes to burn 510 calories.
  • You’ll need 46 minutes of basketball to burn off the 420 calories in a medium order of natural cut fries from Wendy’s.

When you consider that we need to erase 3,500 calories to lose one pound, you may want to learn about healthier alternatives and use the calorie calculator available at everydayhealth.com.
