How do I deal with a stressful day? Read an article on runnersworld.com on a break of course!
The above article talks about the possibility of using pictures of runners or walkers on food labels to signify how many minutes of activity it would take to work off the calories of that food item.
It was a real eye opener for me when restaurants started posting nutritional information on the web. No more whining 'I'm watching what I eat, why am I not losing weight?!'
Now that I'm working out more than I ever have, the "activity labels" would give me a new perspective when deciding which foods I choose.
I wonder though about the people that are not active, that do not pay attention to such information for whatever their reasons may be. Would this make a difference to them?
I'm curious about what you all think. Would you like the "activity label"? Think of the people you know that lead sedentary lives. Do you think this information would spark something in them or would they roll their eyes?
