Eat it because its delicious

How many times have you seen TV segments, or magazine articles that describe in detail what you specifically have to do to burn off a certain meal?

“It takes a 12km run to burn off Pad Thai.

“It takes 300 squats to burn off chicken and chips

If you want to burn it off, why are you eating it?

How useful is it to know that if you’ve just had a double cheeseburger, you’ll need to do 500 push-ups to burn it off?


Would anyone actually do the 500 push ups?

It’s not like you would walk past McDonalds and see people out the front doing push ups on the floor.

Or down some Thai takeaway and then leg it to the next suburb.

“I read about it in Cleo. I need to burn it off now so I’ll see you all tomorrow.”

If people don’t want the calories, don’t eat it. It’s that simple.


Eat it and accept that there is actually some good content too and maybe don’t do 500 push ups so your body makes use of what you’ve just consumed, which is the intention of food.

Because life’s to short to follow every scoop of ice-cream with 200 burpees, for the sake of getting into those skinny jeans.


Last I checked, skinny jeans came in sizes 8-20.

So basically, anyone can eat ice-cream and wear skinny jeans.

Ok unless your vegan or coeliac. But self inflicted in most cases, so I have no sympathy. And they probably don’t wear jeans in general because of something like the material being transported in the same box as the grass that was ripped from a scared wallaby site. Or they were made in the middle of Syria where the women who construct them use needles which are not organic.
