Maybe you've heard that statement before, but what does it mean? It simply means that it takes a lot longer to burn a certain number of calories exercising than it takes to eat the same number of calories. For instance, it takes a 150lb person approximately 1 hour to burn ~500 calories, and that varies greatly depending on how hard you're working out. In 15 minutes, you can eat a Big Mac which has approximately 550 calories and blow your workout out of the water. Not to mention the sodium and fat content.

 We need to bust myths because of all the noise and confusion of what is good or bad for you. Here are my top 3. 1. Energy drinks are less harmful than soda- A 16-ounce can of Red Bull or Monster delivers as much as 280 calories of pure sugar, which is about 80 calories more than you’d find in a 16-ounce cup of Pepsi. Wow.

 1. Pay attention to the descriptions- focus on food with descriptions such as steamed, broiled, or grilled. Obviously avoid anything deep fried or covered in sauce. 2. Drink water with your meal- Soda is empty calories. And as you know SUGAR IS THE ENEMY. 3. Hold the extras: be aware of dressings, spreads, cheese, and other condiments that are loaded with fat and calories.
