Burn Calories by Reading!

Just before Thanksgiving, I received a forward that read “The average person consumes 4,500 calories on Thanksgiving Day”.  This got me thinking about what I would need to do to counter all those extra calories.  Hint: it will not include portion control.

With the holidays around the corner, I guess my Christmas wish list could include new running shoes or some sort of ab blaster but why torture myself when I can do something I really enjoy?  Did you know that you can burn Calories just by reading?  It’s true I read it online and I burned a calorie doing it too.  So I crunched the numbers and at my weight, I will only need to read for 2800 hours to offset this past Thanksgiving dinner!  Well I guess my Christmas list just got condensed to just BetterWorld.com and since it is open 24/7, there will be plenty of time for my family and friends to get my Christmas gifts.  Happy shopping!
