Is it true....that supplements such as FIVE ALIVE (which has 26 veggie vitamins in each tablet) will help make up for the lack of veggies in a diet? This wouldn't include fiber, which can be had from other sources.

Let's see...

A single M&M is about 3.4 calories (34 calories for a 10 candy serving).

To take my running average, I'll burn about 500 calories on a one hour 10k run. So, that's about 50 calories per kilometer, or 5 calories per 100 meters. I'm going to be stubborn and use a Canadian football field, because I don't want to have to travel all the way to Montana to burn off my M&M. That's about 100 meters long (110 yards - we're funny that way). So, as I run across the field at full running speed, I'm going to burn off a little less than 1.5 plain M&M's. If I walk across it, I'll probably come in closer to half an M&M, so I'd really have to start doing laps.

And this is why you can't out exercise a bad diet emoticon

It make sense to me that this applies to probably all fruits. Bananas are a great food but some diabetics cannot tolerate them.

Is it true that bananas that are barely ripe have less calories then one that is really ripe, if so does that apply to all fruits as well?

Good to know. Someone at work had told me that the other day about the 30 minutes. So, it got me to thinking and I just thought this would make a good topic. Maybe some people will be able to get some answers to some of their weight loss/exercise/energy questions. :)

Ask a question about exercise or food that you've heard something about and see if we can get accurate answers. I'll start with one I heard....

Is it true that eating one (1) banana will you give you the energy to be able to walk for 30 minutes?
