    One Cookie = 18 Minutes of Exercise
    Sorry to ruin everyone's holiday spirit, but I just read this article about calories and exercise and it ruined mine!

    http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/front/4418584.html

    It's a good read and, hopefully, will lead to everyone making better food choices!

    However Vodka is a low calorie treat and tonic can be calorie free!

    80-proof Vodka - 65 calories per fluid ounce
    100-proof Vodka - 85 calories per fluid ounce

    Calories in a Vodka and Tonic using 1.5 fluid ounces of vodka plus 6 fluid ounces of tonic water and 1 slice of lime - About 175 calories and 16 carb grams.

    Calories in a Vodka and Cola using 1.5 fluid ounces of vodka plus 4 fluid ounces of cola - About 150 calories and 13 carb grams.

    Calories in a Vodka and Bitter Lemon using 1.5 fluid ounces of vodka, 3 fluid ounces of lemon-lime soda, 3 fluid ounces of tonic water and a slice of lime - About 180 calories and 17 carb grams.

    Calories in a Vodka Martini using 3 fluid ounces of vodka, splash of dry vermouth and a green olive - About 210 calories and less than one carb gram.

    Calories in a Tom Collins cocktail prepared with 1 jigger of vodka and 1.5 jiggers of Tom Collins Cocktail Mix - About 70 calories and 10 carb grams.

    Calories in a Black Russian cocktail prepared with 2 jiggers of vodka, and 1 jigger of Black Russian Cocktail Mix - About 75 calories and 7 carb grams.

    Hmm, so two martinis at 6 ounces each....uh oh. Looks like I need to hit the gym! I wonder how many calories are in the vermouth.

    Maybe I can just stop eating the olives.

    One Cookie doesn't have to equal 18 Minutes of Exercise. It could also just mean extra weight. Works for me. I have a moto when it comes to exercise... "No pain, no pain".

    BTW. You don't have to "excerise" just to burn calories.

    After a few Martini's, you could stumble around for 18 minutes and burn lots of calories.

    Or you could "make love" for 18 minutes...

    Just don't try to do both at the same time

    Happy Holidays,

    Actually, stumbling around IS how I make love. Oh sure, like you know what you're doing.

    Who drinks it in such minimal quantities?!

    At the end of the night, you end up consuming some 10-12 ounces, and that is some 750-900 extra calories...

    I'm SO pleased to see the spirit of Christmas is alive and well! Who counts calories at Christmas or considers drinking in moderation? - that's for January when you're bored stiff and stats are less interesting.

    I just wanna know what cookies you all think are so good they're worth 18 minutes of exercise.

    I nominate these: http://www.dancingdeer.com/Cookies/M...-MOLASSES.html

    Exactly!

    That's the time to pig out (literally) That's the time to eat a lot of roasted pig (pork) - (unless you're a vegetarian or from another religion)

    But since I am a capricorn , the celebrations don't end until February.

    So quitting smoking, or thinking about any new diet, etc, will never happen before my birthday on any January.

    Btw, by the title of this thread:
    One Cookie = 18 Minutes of Exercise
    I thought that CJ had come out with a new PSA about our CJ cookies.

    I like cookies!

    1 cookie = a comission!

    Fat comes later at the bakery spending the comission on a real cookie.
