How to Work Off 5 of Our Favorite Foods & Drinks

British researchers are recommending the ultimate buzzkill... Adding 'exercise equivalents' to food labels! That’s right, all labels would have the calorie count, as well as what you’ll need to do to burn those calories. Donna Ruko and Nutrition Health Coach, Lindsay Hunt, have a sneak peek at what this might look like. They are breaking down five of our favorite foods and drinks.

1.  Cheeseburger

400 Calories = 40 Minutes of Jumping Jacks

2.  Red Velvet Cupcake

496 Calories = 30 Minutes of Step-Ups

3.  Glass of Red Wine

115 Calories = 12 Minutes of Jump Rope

4.  Bagel with 3 Tablespoons of Cream Cheese

450 Calories = 50 Minutes of Push-Ups

5.  Slice of Pepperoni Pizza

300 Calories = 30 Minutes of Burpees

That’s a look at all your favorite foods, and how much exercise it'll take to metabolize them!

Would you like to see ‘exercise equivalents’ added to labels, or is ignorance bliss? Join the conversation on our Facebook page, @TheListShowTV.
