Cycling vs Burger, Skipping vs Pizza: Who will win?

Sep 15, 2016 | Living

My father once told me, “Eat to live, don’t live to eat”. While I did try to do that, our fast-paced and busy lives entail us to indulge in easily available ready-to-eat and processed foods. Although this satisfies our hunger, it’s quite shocking to know the nutrient proportions and calories that are contained in these foods. What is even more horrifying is the amount of effort required to shed these calories!

“Dieting isn’t complicated: if you eat 2,000 calories, you have to burn it off; simple as that.”

James Purefoy

Don’t believe me? The list below shows the calories in various “junk” & “fast” foods and the equivalent workout required to shed those calories.
