The Krispy Kreme Challenge.

It’s for charity, sure, but you run 2 miles, eat a dozen doughnuts, run 2 miles back in under an hour.

12 Krispy Kreme original glazed = 2400 calories
Running for 1 hour = 580-740 calories burned

Umm, yeah.

It’s not as healthy as you think

Healthier than McNuggets though.

Caloric information for sushi.

Let’s see, on the list I get spicy tuna (290 cal, 11g fat, 26g carbs), tuna nigiri (240 cal, 1g fat, 27g carbs), salmon sashimi (164 cal, 6g fat, 0g carbs).  I eat much, much more than just these three things, but even if I ONLY ate this (which would never happen), that’s 694 calories, 18g of fat, 53g carbs.  Sheesh!
