Recently we ran a trivia quiz for a group of high school students participating in our fitness program. We gave them a list of fast food and restaurant meals and had them guess what the approximate calories from exercise they’d have to burn in order to earn their favorite meals.
We had so much fun I thought I’d share with you the same list. Remember, diet is as important and exercise! Are any of these foods in your diet? If so, you decide whether they’re worth the punishment.
