Have you heard...

...How much you have to exercise to work your christmas calories ?

 

 

At Christmas, we have a feast, like to nibble, and eat all tasty titbits, which are barely available throughout the year. A plenty of sweets is offered and resisting is difficult. Many Christmas fairs tempt us with Christmas titbits. You get in the mood of Christmas with mulled wine and other drink varieties.

When you survive this time irrespective of putting on the winter (Christmas) flab, you face the next temptation, the Christmas dinner, you should firmly resist - from the delicious Christmas goose on Christmas Eve to the cheese fondu on the first Day of Christmas and finally the "light" potato salad with sausages for the third lap.

Moving is reduced to a minimum more or less of one's own free will between the days. In best case, you have consumed so many calories because of hard searching for presents as Christmas approaches, that you compensate the negative balance by Christmas feasts. If this is not the case, that means kicking, jogging, rowing, or climbing stairs.

 

How many calories do we intake with our food during Christmas time ?

How much time do we need to get rid off the collected calories by exercising ?

 

When you orientate on a rough estimated value - whereat an average person (75kg) burns approximately 120 kcal at an average running speed in 10 minutes - the time, which has to be run to burn Christmas calories, can be calculated.

A number of additional calories, which we often intake unconsciously on a Christmas day, is listed below. How quickly 5 gingery biscuits are eaten without being noticed. These are only snacks, which are basically completed by opulent main meals.

 

Examples of calculations:

  

4 cinnamon biscuits
2 ginger bread
3 dominoes
40g doughnuts
2 beakers of mulled wine
