Gold’s Gym West GA helps you understand Calories vs Cardio

 How long does it really take to work off the calories in the foods you eat?  We’ll show you the time before you do the crime.  You already know that eating  a bacon cheeseburger and fries will cost you a couple thousand calories — and a couple hours of cardio at the gym. But you may not realize that any food, no matter how healthy it seems, becomes instantly unhealthy once you eat too much of it. Here are some surprising — and not so surprising — caloric offenders, and exactly the price you’ll pay in sweat.

Deep-dish pizza

220 calories, 7 g fat, 240 mg sodium per slice
Add extra cheese, pepperoni, sausage and ham for an extra 120 calories per slice. And let’s be frank — are you going to stop at just one?
37 minutes on the stair climber for each overloaded slice

Large blended coffee with vanilla shot

440 calories, 4.5 g fat, 330 mg sodium
Top it off with whipped cream for an additional 120 calories and 11 grams of fat.
37 minutes on the elliptical trainer

Multigrain bagel

400 calories, 9 g fat, 600 mg sodium
Who gets a bagel without cream cheese? Add a schmear of reduced-fat strawberry cream cheese for an extra 150 calories and 10 grams of fat.
52 minutes of intense circuit training

Six-inch deli meat sub sandwich

410 calories, 16 g fat, 1,450 mg sodium
Maybe it’s not the worst thing you can eat, but it’s definitely not the best. The values above don’t reflect any of the tasty fixin’s, like mayonnaise, oil and vinegar, and fancy flavored dressings. Depending on how heavy-handed your server is with the squeeze bottle, you could be squirting another 200 calories on that sub. Oh, and over 50% of daily recommended sodium intake.
1 hour, 6 minutes on the row machine

Cobb salad

708 calories, 55 g fat, 1,328 mg sodium
We haven’t gotten to the dressing yet. How about reduced-fat vinaigrette? Boom! 100 calories.
1 hour, 29 minutes on the stationary bike

 Honey BBQ wings (10)

90 calories, 5 g fat, 260 mg sodium per wing
A tiny serving of zesty ranch or blue cheese dressing tacks on an additional 140 calories.
1 hour, 33 minutes of jogging

Bacon cheeseburger

790 calories, 39 g of fat, 2,070 mg sodium
You probably also ordered a medium fries (380 calories, 19 g fat) and a medium soda (210 calories) for a heart-stopping total of 1,380 calories.
1 hour, 32 minutes on the elliptical trainer

Chili cheese fries

1,920 calories, 147 g fat, 3,570 mg sodium
The prosecution rests.
2 hours, 25 minutes of full-speed running
