FORT MYERS, Fla. - Ever wonder how much exercise you'd have to do, to burn off your favorite foods? Mike Drumm from Gold's Gym shows us the time before you do the crime.
CRIME: Chili cheese fries
Exhibit A: 1,920 calories, 147 g fat, 3,570 mg sodium
Exhibit B: The prosecution rests.
SENTENCE: 2 hours, 25 minutes of full-speed running
CRIME: Six-inch deli meat sub sandwich
Exhibit A: 410 calories, 16 g fat, 1,450 mg sodium Exhibit B: Maybe it's not the worst thing you can eat, but it's definitely not the best. The values above don't reflect any of the tasty fixin's, like mayonnaise, oil and vinegar, and fancy flavored dressings. Depending on how heavy-handed your server is with the squeeze bottle, you could be squirting another 200 calories on that sub. Oh, and over 50% of daily recommended sodium intake. SENTENCE: 1 hour, 6 minutes on the row machine
CRIME: Large blended coffee with vanilla shot
Exhibit A: 440 calories, 4.5 g fat, 330 mg sodium Exhibit B: Top it off with whipped cream for an additional 120 calories and 11 grams of fat. SENTENCE: 37 minutes on the elliptical trainer
CRIME: Deep-dish pizza
Exhibit A: 220 calories, 7 g fat, 240 mg sodium per slice Exhibit B: Add extra cheese, pepperoni, sausage and ham for an extra 120 calories per slice. And let's be frank - are you going to stop at just one? SENTENCE: 37 minutes on the stair climber for each overloaded slice
CRIME: Cobb salad
Exhibit A: 708 calories, 55 g fat, 1,328 mg sodium Exhibit B: We haven't gotten to the dressing yet. How about reduced-fat vinaigrette? Boom! 100 calories. SENTENCE: 1 hour, 29 minutes on the stationary bike
CRIME: Fat-free soft-serve vanilla frozen yogurt
Exhibit A: 110 calories, 0 g fat, 65 mg sodium per ½ cup serving Exhibit B: On paper, this sweet treat doesn't look so bad, until you realize that a size "regular" holds more than two and a half servings! Order the extra large for the equivalent of 4.6 servings in one tiny Styrofoam cup. Not to mention that fat-free desserts tend to overdo it on sugar to compensate for taste. You may end up consuming the same amount of sugar as found in a bottle of soda. Sugary toppings will only make matters worse. SENTENCE: 1 hour, 30 minutes - the equivalent of 4.5 miles, or 18 laps around the track - of walking
