    Should food be labeled with exercise penalties?

    "I just earned my ice cream" said treadmill guy after burning off 140 calories walking.


    NOT a good idea, in my opinion. Sweating off your junk food (or even too much good food) just doesn't work.


    We all know people at our local gym who do this, and aren't they the same today as they were when they started? Overweight and unhealthy.

    Food 'should show activity needed to burn off calories' - BBC News


    I'd actually prefer the reverse. Exercise equipment should tell you how little junk it takes to reverse your hard work.

    Bad idea. List the ingredients and the nutrition facts, but leave exercise off. It sends the wrong message.

    I somehow think that the people who would read that stuff already know it, and those who don't wouldn't care.

    Many people don't care, but you might be surprised at how many people don't know what's in food, what's healthy, and are genuinely surprised by info on labels.

    Most people don't care, and the ones who do probably have an idea of how many calories are in the food they eat and how many they burn working out.

    After all, do people ever really pay attention to how many calories are in the restaurant food they eat, even when they are posted?
