After our Halloween infographic, a few people told us they wish they hadn’t see that information; they’d never be able to look at a Snickers bar the same way again. And, you know, there are two sides to that.
First, you should never feel like you need to burn off every calorie you consume, so it makes sense that some folks would rather just not know. If moderation comes naturally to you, then you can probably live in ignorant bliss and be perfectly happy and healthy.
For the rest of us (and yeah, I’m definitely including myself here, because moderation is not my natural state of being when it comes to delicious foods), knowledge is absolutely the most powerful tool in our arsenal, and having a general idea of how the food we eat impacts our health helps us make good choices. Or at least, keeps us from going up for a third slice of pie.
(What? It’s pumpkin. Pumpkin is good for you, right?)
So, with all that in mind, we’ve got another infographic for you, this time, based on some of the most popular Thanksgiving foods. Anybody up for a 15.5-hour walk? Oy.
Eat well, enjoy your splurges and stay healthy, Fit Bottomed friends! And let’s hear it — what’s your favorite Thanksgiving food? —Kristen
