Little Things Make A BIG Difference
Thursday, September 10, 2009
I gained 40 pounds, but it took me 5 years to do it.
Whether it's my age, lack of exercise, etc., doesn't matter. What matters are the numbers.
40 pounds in 5 years means 8 pounds per year. 8 pounds, at 3500 calories a pound, means an extra 28,000 calories in each year. Divide that by 365 days, and it means I've overshot my calorie allotment by
LESS THAN 80 CALORIES A DAY!
EATING ONE EXTRA MEDIUM APPLE PER DAY than what my body requires has resulted in 40 EXTRA POUNDS!
This is amazing, don't you think?
So here's my conclusion -- it wasn't the fast food, fried food, ice cream & chips, it was that daily extra apple that did me in!!
