Popular Food’s Calories | Sproting Life

Posted on: November 15, 2012

It’s good to know how many calories you are consuming whether you are on a diet or just making sure you eating enough to stay healthy. We’ve put together a list of common favorite foods and their calorie content. This way you can keep track of your caloric intake and if you’re desperate for those morning pancakes (520 calories for two) you’ll know where to compensate elsewhere or be more inspired to hit the gym later.

Also remember, there’s a lot of great low calorie substitutes for high calorie foods such as a chicken burger (130 calories) versus a hamburger (250 calories).

Calories give you energy, which is needed to keep you and your body going throughout the day, but if you’re not burning enough calories then that’s where weight gain occurs. So it’s important to make sure you’re not eating food that’s too high in calories, which will add to extra, unwanted weight gain.

The important thing to remember is to live a healthy style. The calorie content in food should play a role in your diet along with exercise and your scale will thank you.

  • Getting Exercise

Determine what type of physical activity best suits your lifestyle. You should work your way up to regular aerobic exercise, such as brisk walking, jogging or swimming, since it is a key factor in achieving permanent weight loss and improving health. Aerobic exercise works the body’s large muscles, such as the heart, and should be moderately vigorous, but not exhausting, to be most effective. For maximum benefits, most health experts recommend exercising 30 minutes or more on most, preferably all, days of the week.

Try to incorporate some simple calorie-burners into your everyday routine. Even the most basic activities (such as taking an after-dinner walk, using the stairs at the mall instead of taking an escalator, or parking farther away so you have a longer walk) can get you prepared for more aerobic activities.

Exercise not only burns calories, it may increase the body’s metabolic rate and actually decreases appetite for some people. Exercise also has psychological benefits. It improves your sense of well-being and decreases stress (which often leads to overeating).
