How Many Calories Does Walking Burn?

There’s a cool study recently released that shares how folks respond to their eating choices when a menu includes how much time they would have to walk in order to burn off the calories consumed.  Would you change your eating habits based on this? If you are already committed to exercising regularly, you know what it takes to burn calories when you eat unhealthy foods. A sinful pleasure is just a reminder to not stop your exercise routine 😉

The new study included 300 people, aged 18 to 30, who were given either a menu without calorie labels, a menu with calorie labels or a menu with labels for the minutes of brisk walking needed to burn off the calories in the food.

Brisk walking was chosen as the form of exercise because it is something that nearly everyone can relate to, said lead researcher Ashlei James, a graduate student at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth.

The findings were scheduled for presentation Tuesday at the Experimental Biology meeting in Boston. Data and conclusions from research presented at medical meetings should be considered preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed journal.

As an example of the information given to the participants, a woman would have to walk briskly for about two hours to burn off the calories in a quarter-pound double cheeseburger, the researchers said.

“All menus contained the same food and beverage options, which included burgers, chicken sandwiches and tenders, salad, fries, desserts, soda, and water,” James said.
