Think Before You Eat
Most people enjoy a good juicy burger with fries and some type of beverage. However, over indulging may have some consequences. According to The Insider, the average cost of a burger in respect to the fast food restaurant are:
- Price at McDonald’s: $1.09
- Price at Burger King: $4.29
- Price at White Castle: $0.75
- Price at Wendy’s: $4.44
Sure, the cost is right. Great tasting food. Your belly is happy. But do you think about exercising after a meal?
- Less than 5% of adults participate in 30 minutes of physical activity each day;2 only one in three adults receive the recommended amount of physical activity each week.3
- Only 35 – 44% of adults 75 years or older are physically active, and 28-34% of adults ages 65-74 are physically active.4
- More than 80% of adults do not meet the guidelines for both aerobic and muscle-strengthening activities, and more than 80% of adolescents do not do enough aerobic physical activity to meet the guidelines for youth.5
Most people know by reading or listening, that there is a correlation between what you are eating and amount of exercising needed to lose the weight. However, you may have a friend, family member or yourself that need some motivation. If people thought about not just the calories consume, but the amount of exercise needed to loose weight.
