Christmas Treats versus Treadmill pain

Have you ever wondered how many calories you can put on at Christmas? Or how long will it take to lose the extra pounds? Read on to find out how long you have to spend on a treadmill to burn off a 4000 calorie dinner.....how long you have to run for one 70g mince pie.....

So if you ever wanted to put those snacks in perspective and see how much time it will take to “burn” them off on a treadmill then here you go:

To brighten your Christmas even further, here's a short list of popular drinks and their calorific value:

Small glass of wine (175ml) - 160 calories (15 minutes on treadmill)
Large glass of wine (250ml) - 228 calories  (20 minutes on treadmill)
Bottle of wine (750ml) - 680 calories (60 minutes on treadmill)
Pint of lager - 227 calories (20 minutes on treadmill)
Pint of beer/stout - 250 calories (22 minutes on treadmill)
Gin and tonic (normal mixer)  - 120 (s) 175(d) (10 minutes on treadmill)
Gin and tonic (slimline)  - 56 calories (5 minutes on treadmill)
Bacardi and coke - 129 calories (10 minutes on treadmill)

And don't forget kids, these amounts are JUST ONE of each drink.......

Other useful fat burning info:

 To lose 1llb per week you need to create a 3500 calorie deficit (i.e. less than your BMR total for the week). So if your BMR (Basal Metabolic rate - the rate you need to stay the same weight) is 1500 per day (average for a woman) you need to be at 1000 calories which includes exercise. So you could eat 1500 calories but you would need to burn 500 to get to your 1000 calorie total for the day. On a no exercise day try to eat 1000 calories.

Simple rule: the more calories you burn (or don't consume) the greater the calorie deficit and the greater the weight loss.
