Laura Dolson over at About.com has a helpful list of low-carb veggies. Helpful if you:
- experience excessive blood sugar spikes from high-carb items
- are restricting carbs for weight management
- are eating a Paleo Diabetic diet
Weight: 161 lb
Exercise: 90 minutes horseback riding and horse grooming
You can find out how many calories you burn in various exercises at ShapeUp.org. “Horseback riding” was not on the list of options, however. “Calorie Count” at About.com has a list of calories burned in numerous sports, including general horseback riding, trotting, saddling and grooming. For general horseback riding, a 150-pound person burns about 272 calories per hour, which is the amount of energy in one Snickers bar. Sophisticated calculators let you enter your weight for a more accurate assessment of calories burned. For example, it takes more energy (calories) for a 250-pounder to walk at 4 mph than it does for a 150-pounder.
I realized clearly today that 14 oz (400 g) of tomatoes and cucumbers—the max on KMD—is not all that much in terms of volume. But 4 oz of baby spinach is a huge amount. You can compare the nutrients in tomatoes, cucumbers, and spinach at NutritionData’s “Compare Foods” page.
