Calculating How Much Exercise to Work Off Your Excess Food

https://digitalcitizen.ca/category/writing/How much exercise does it take to work off that excess and/or not so good food you allowed yourself? A week after getting my first ever smart watch, I have a means to find out, and I want to share it for anybody looking to get an idea for themselves. It will be different for everybody due to the exercise, challenges in the exercise, their size, body mass index, and so on. It won’t be exact, but it might be as good an estimate as you’re going to get without all the medical gear.

A Better McNuggets Meal

Upgraded McNuggets mealI don’t find McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets to be very filling if I only eat like a six pack. However, I don’t exactly want to be eating 10 or 20 just to be full, either. So recently, I conjured up this quick and easy idea to make a better meal with McNuggets, for the times when I don’t have time to cook a full lunch or meal. It’s my upgraded, upscaled or upcycled McNuggets meal.
