Calories vs Physical Activity Posters Might Be a NYC Reality, Let the Crying Begin

Calorie Posters

Since NYC mayor Bloomberg is losing his battle against banning large quantities of sugary drinks, the city has come up with an idea that might get a similar message across. The poster-based campaign would basically share caloric information of popular foods and drinks alongside how much physical activity it would take to burn it all off.

So let’s say you’ve got a hankering for a Sausage Double Beef Burger. If the city has its way, you’ll also be aware it’ll take approximately way too much exercise to reverse that calorie bomb intake. Woof.

While it’s definitely important to make conscious and healthy decisions, sometimes you gotta just say YOLO, and go for a mound of grease. Few things in this world would stop us from downing mounds upon mounds of donut poutine. Sorry, Bloomster.
