So, today’s episode is its Christmas and I know everyone celebrate Christmas, we have Hanika we have other you know holidays that I want to recognize but I think with Christmas the killer foods, oh my gosh you know they gets bad. So, I know for a lot of people it’s time here, it’s well but this episode is the truth about Christmas food, calories. So, I’d picked standard foods that you may see the typical spot when you go to a holiday party you have you know you got your candy canes, you nasty fruit cake which will get to the moment, the egg nogg. Who the heck even eat, I don’t even know. Well anyway, the cookies, the hot chocolate we got it all here so I want to break it down for you. What you have to do A what the serving is and B what you would actually have to do to burn off one serving of these items okay so it’s pretty interesting. Alright, first thing we are going to do, hot chocolate right over here. Get that hot chocolate, it’s about 68 ounces you can mix it water, a little bit of skim milk that would increase the calories but roughly your average hot chocolate is about 150 calories okay. 150 calories so what would you have to do to burn a 150 calories? It’s pretty simple, dance. Dance for half and hour okay that’s pretty you can go on this parties having dancing anyway so I would say the hot chocolate isn’t such bad thing because you will be dancing and you are dancing as fun so to burn off just that 150 calories it would take about that. Of course there are other things you could do but you know being creative dance for half and hour. Okay, the next thing egg nogg, okay this is pretty interesting. Alright because everyone thinks hey have you eve the eggnog, oh give me seconds this is so good. Alright see I bought this and this is not alcohol, just the typical egg nogg. Its 90 calories per serving but what is the serving you ask? You find think off, this small glass right? I’m just going to fill up and I want to slum it and we are going to have a good time. Alright one serving of egg nogg is best folks. Okay, that’s the serving of egg nogg now how many people do you know are just going to drink this? Now this alcoholic, I could think yes, sure you just kind to sip it throughout the evening but I’m sure chances are a lot of you are going to be drinking about twice those or three times this I mean. Alright so for these 90 calories and just to check the fat, 2 grams of fat not too bad 15 grams of sugar. But in order to burn just four ounces of this egg nogg you would have to do 10-15 minutes of jumping jacks. Now if any the guys call my boot camps so I make to do jumping jacks your actually screen the next day. So, I mean if you prefer jumping jacks and you just got up in the morning and do you know ten of them in one day you just end yourself four ounces of egg nogg. But if you want to have two servings of egg nogg got to do about 20 minutes to half hour jumping jacks and if you add and alcohol I’m sure you have to do about 45 minutes of jumping jacks so that’s not fun for everyone. I wouldn’t recommend it because that was kind a hurt alri
