Yesterdays sun "FIT BITS " under energy to burn : to burn the energy of 2 large glasses of orange juice you need to
1 38 minutes of high impact aerobics
2 Go rock climbing for 35 minutes
3 play netball for 46 minutes
4 do 2 hours 35 minutes of vacuuming

I was suprised by the huge amounts of sugar in fruit juice. I now water that stuff down 10:1.

From http://www.dailyjuice.com.au/DailyJuice_NutrionalSheet.pdf (first juice I could think of and find nutritional info for)

Breakfast Juice: 12.2g/100ml
Orange Mango: 10.4g/100ml
OJ (no added sugar): 8.0g/100ml

Compared with soft drink:

Coke: 10.6g/100ml

Birds arent stupid... fruit contains sugary goodness. Average juice is comparable to soft drink in carbohydrates from sugars. I like these sort of stats, another good one is that a professional athlete running a full marathon consumes equivelant energy of about 1.5 loaves of bread. Worth bearing in mind next time you chow down on 12 pieces of toast for breakie. Edit: damn you AJF and your near pre-cognitive web searching!

p.s. I like that rock climbing is equivelant to high impact aerobics! But do they include just the climbing (like in a gym) or also the dragging around a heavy pack and walking up and down access trails.

Actually, I would have thought that once your muscles adapt to general cranking, that climbing in the gym would not be a great calorie burning exercise.

I wonder if being fat and unfit, therefore weighing more but doing less in a session balances out with being lighter but climbing more in a session?

How much climbing do I have to do to burn 1 pot of stout?

I dont get fruit. It is sugar. Per wieght most veges have more vitamins, minerals and fibre and fruit just doesnt go with salt and pepper and meat.

Exactly. Even without the "added sugar", fruit still contains fructose. It's those words ending in "ose" that you have to be wary of. Fructose.... Glucose.... Lactose... Overdose....

Fatties like me get more of a weight training session. Muscle mass is an important factor too, more muscle equals more calorie burn.

Courtesy of Signe's marathon training regime and fancy watch, I now know that a 35km run burns way more calories than the average person needs for the whole day. It was about 2600 i think. Courtesty of my aerobics class on Monday night (thank you john brumby, free gym for a month), i also know that it's much harder work than 35m of climbing, unless that 35 minutes is on the last pitch of Five FIngered Mary. and i'll still take fruit juice over coke, although i have developed a penchant for chocolate milk whilst in the states.

Low fat chocolate milk is good. High in protein too..

Wendy, Runners World puts calories burnt over 42k at about 2900 so I reckon that fancy watch is working great. I used a Polar for my marathon training and loved it, really helped me set pace. Best of luck with the training.

Fresh fruit is mostly fibre and a little bit of sugar (usually in the form of fructose)
Fruit juice is basically all the sugar from the fruit. The supermarket variety probably has added sugar !
Coka cola is sweetened mostly with pear juice or corn syrup (sugar-fructose again)

Our bodies aren't designed to consume large amounts of fructose. Our ancestors got lots of vegies, grains, meat, and a little fruit, but wouldn't get a lot of sugars. So the body stores all that goodness quickly - taking advantage of it.

So:
eat fruit, its yummy, keeps you regular, unlikely to make you fat
don't drink fruit juice or cola, both will make you fat

fruit juice is basically soft drink dressed up as a health food!

Around the 34-35 km mark is only when it finally starts to get interesting. ;-)

I wasn't doing the running! I was off climbing whilst Signe did a campsite return run around the scenic loop at red rocks and hearing about the calorie deficit over beer later ...

That 2600 was on top of her normal daily calorie needs, making about 4600 for the whole day.

In that case, best of luck with laps on five fingered mary.

I have heard that even when they say "no added sugar" on the label that they are actually allowed to add sugar "to account for seasonal differences". They most likely take full advantage of this loophole. Food labelling is a joke (on the consumer). The food industry is laughing.
