I weigh about 70 kg, which in “old money” in 155 lb. So looking at the chart, for a 30-minute run at 8 mins per mile (my average speed), I burn 465 calories. Of course, the major caveat with this type of chart is that everyone is different. Some people have a really quick metabolism and can burn three times as many calories as others. The same can be said of the food we eat. It’s not an exact science.
Not that I eat them very often, but according to the average burn rate for a person of my weight in the chart, I would have to run about 64 minutes to burn off a Big Mac Meal or about 36 minutes for a nice bowl of Japanese tonkotsu ramen (like the one in the picture). It really is true to say “A moment on the lips equals a lifetime on the hips!” Or at least by this calculation, 20 minutes in McDonalds and a noodle shop, 100 minutes running down the road.
