No, we’re not stupid enough to think you would actually ASK how much damage your doing to your body with your culinary consumption today.
Yet, we realize that deep down…like wanting to stare at the car wreck…you REALLY want to know. So here goes:
According to the Calorie Control Council, an average American consumes 3,000 calories and 150 grams of fat in a traditional Thanksgiving meal.
That’s without seconds!
How much is that?
Okay, sit down. That’s about the same as having 6 McDonald’s Big Macs, or 16 slices of Pepperoni Pizza, or 12 servings of Haagen-Dazs ice cream.
I know, right?
Wait, it gets worse. To burn off Thanksgiving dinner, a 160-pound person would have to run moderately for 4 hours or swim for 5 hours.
Maybe you should have read this BEFORE lunch? <g>
