How to Burn Off the Calories for Each Item on the Thanksgiving Menu

Studies say the average American will eat about 4,500 calories during their Thanksgiving meal. That's a lot... 

In terms of calories, you would basically have to run from NoCo to Denver to burn off the whole meal. 

But thanks to the good folks at Denver's Channel 2 News, we know how much you'd have to do to burn off each menu item also: 

  • 4 oz. turkey = jump rope for 2 hours and 20 minutes
  • ½ cup stuffing = 10 minutes of stair running
  • ½ cup mashed potatoes with ¼ cup gravy = 150 burpees
  • ¼ cup cranberry sauce = 60 push ups
  • 6 oz. red wine = 35-minute walk
  • 1 slice pumpkin pie = 60 minutes of yoga
  • 1 slice apple pie = 5k run

Good luck!
