Would you eat less if you knew how long it would take to burn them off? For years as I have waited in line for my morning coffee staring at all the cinnamon rolls and other baked goods, I have asked myself “is this cinnamon roll worth the last hour or two in the gym?” For me, the answer is always “no.” I work hard in the gym and sacrificing that hard work for something that makes you fat and sick just isn’t worth it. I truly believe that one of the benefits of weight loss hypnosis is that it makes you more mindful of food and other lifestyle choices.
Eat Less if You Know Time Needed to Burn Calories?
HealthDay News, April 23, 2013: Menus that show how much exercise will be needed to burn off the calories in meals may help reduce how much people eat.
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.
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 people given the menu listing the minutes of brisk walking needed to burn food calories ordered and consumed fewer calories than those given either of the other menus.
However, among those who received the other two menus — with or without calorie labels — there was no difference in the number of calories ordered and consumed, the investigators found.
When making food choices, stop and think – be mindful. Ask yourself if this is really worth the amount of exercise you will have to do to burn off the calories.
