A recent study came out that illustrated that people who ordered from a menu that listed the minutes an average person would have to walk briskly to burn that particular food ordered less food than menus with calories listed or a menu with no calorie or exercise count. The study also showed there was no difference in the amount ordered by those viewing a menu with calories listed and a menu with no calories listed.

Here is an infographic that shows the amount of walking the average person would have to do to burn off certain foods. This is based on holiday foods and meals, but I thought it was a good illustration of some typical foods.





Would this influence your food decisions? Does this make you think twice about any indulgences you have?
