Ever wondered how long it takes to burn a typical fast meal? Myself and a friend did a kinda funny yet useful little experiment, my friend (test subject] ordered KFC Zinger Supreme meal along with french fries and regular coke. Typically KFC Zinger Supreme has about 685 Calories, Coke 200 Calories, and french fries 300 (so total is 1185 Calories).
We used Nike Fuel Band to measure calories before consuming the meal (His meal not mine) and after. The reading before was 257 calories and after finishing “finger lickin’ good” we got these results:
5 minutes later: 262 Calories burned
15 minutes later: 292 Calories burned
30 minutes later: 378 Calories burned
1 hour later: 480 Calories burned
2 hours later: 657 Calories burned
After two hours of regular activity the total burned Calories were 400 out of 1185, so I guess it would take him another 5 to 6 hours to burn the whole meal, unless of course he hits the gym or simply start running.
Note: All numbers above are approximate, burning process differs from one person to another, also increases with more activity.
