Caloric intake and also walking culture.— Cernovich (@Cernovich) September 23, 2021
It’s hard to appreciate how inactive Americans are until you’re elsewhere and people all walk everywhere. https://t.co/3ivJZxwkEq
I noticed that at my workplace many years ago. Quite a few colleagues would jump in their cars to get coffee from a shop that was within walking distance. It was doubly strange when they did that during lovely spring weather.
An average person would have to walk 12 hours to burn off one pound. It's easy to do that in one month. That's 12 pounds in a year. It's low-level calorie burn but it adds up to a substantial amount over time.
