How much does your fast food fix cost you?

16 05 2011

One of the lessons we have learned talking with hundreds of weight management participants is that sometimes the lure of convenient, fast food is difficult to ignore. Its cheap, and its everywhere. I personally think the food I cook at home tastes much better but that is a debate for another day.

There are certainly some better choices out there if you do make the decision to eat fast food, but have you ever wondered how much those choices “cost”? I’m not talking about the value menu price, I’m talking about the hard earned calories burned that many of us put in walking in our neighborhoods or exercising at the gym. One of our counselors, Jessica Peacock, found this interactive tool that will help you determine – before or after the act – how much those choices cost. Educate yourself, and see if you think those decisions are work the price you have to pay in sweat. Enjoy!
