Do Calories Count?

Yes, as a matter of fact, they do. And the amount one consumes, as opposed to the amount of exercise one does, determines whether one is losing or gaining weight. Just for fun, look at the calories in the list below and think of how much exercise you would have to do to get rid of them!
By the numbers
New York City now requires chain restaurants to post calorie information on their menus. Here are the counts for a few popular fast foods:
Food Calories
McDonald's Big Mac 1,130
Burger King Whopper with cheese 770
McDonald's Big Mac 540
Medium Coke Classic (21 ounces) 210
Taco Bell beef soft taco supreme 250
Dunkin' Donuts sausage, egg
and cheese croissant 630
Starbucks blueberry muffin 320
Domino's Pizza slice, with cheese & pepperoni 210
