How Much Exercise Needed To Burn Off Fast Food Calories

The U.S. based health website, HomeRemedyShop.com, created a calculator to figure out how much exercise you need to burn off a fast food meal, taking menus from seven different fast food giants including McDonalds and Taco Bell.

The website uses the following equation to calculate how much time and energy you would need to get the calorie count back down to zero:

Calories = METS (calories/kg*hours) x Weight (kg) x Time (hours)

The site also calculated how to get the factor for METS:

In the above equation, the energy cost of a given activity is represented by the constant “METS,” which denotes the activity’s “metabolic equivalent.” To find the hours of activity needed to equate with the caloric intake during a night out, we rearranged the above equation to solve for hours: Time = Calories/(MET x Weight)

The website does not take into account a person’s muscle mass, body fat or the fact that everything — even sleeping and breathing — also burns calories.

Here are a few examples as you consider your cheat day ruined, Share the post to ruin your friends dinner plans 🙂
