How Many Miles of Walking to Work Off a Bowl of Steamed Kale?

An interesting study shows that people respond to nutrition labels that tell them the walking distance required to work off that burger they’re about to order. See this article in the Washington Post “Want a Treadmill with your Burger?”.

Of course, one of the cool things about the plant-based program I follow is that the days of counting calories (or counting distance walked) are in the past. I can eat all the vegetables I want and not gain weight.
