In Britain, health experts are considering a new twist to food labeling.  With 2/3 of the adult population being overweight or obese, the Royal Society of Public Health is considering exercise equivalent food labels.  This means every food label would include graphics the inform the consumer how much exercise would be required to burn off the calories of the food item.

You can never exercise your “way out” of bad food choices.  A super intense cardio workout can burn 800 calories, but this can be gained back by simply looking at ice cream!  Maybe this food label approach will help educate folks and guide them in the right direction.

This is an interesting concept.  Would it affect the choices you make?
