Instead of being presented with a list of quantified nutrition facts, a new study out of Texas Christian University says that people tend to make healthier choices if they’re presented with how much exercise it would take to burn off what they’re considering eating. From mozzarella sticks to a cheesy pizza, here are some tempting favorites and the amount of exercise it would take to burn it all off.
*Note: Estimates are based on a 140-pound woman.
One basket of mozzarella sticks at 763 calories equals 84 minutes of singles tennis (or two hours and 15 minutes of doubles!).
One 12-oz light beer at 103 calories equals 30 minutes of bowling.
