Walking Fact Wednesday

Walk With Joelle_football field 4_CMJ

A person needs to walk the length of a football field — 100 yards — to burn enough calories to offset eating a single piece of candy-coated chocolate.

(Think plain M&M’s or similar candies.)

One serving of M&M’s is about 50-odd pieces … which means 5,000 yards of walking to burn it off. That’s equal to nearly 3 miles, or a 45-minute walk at a 4 mph pace.

Food for thought next time you rip open a package!
