If you are heading out the the mall today to do some shopping you may have to battle more crowds than the cyber shoppers but YOU will be burning more calories while you shop! How many? Well, that depends on your body weight, how fast you walk, how many heavy packages you are carrying, and numerous other factors. According to Nutrition ATC, a 3 hour shopping trip to the mall will burn at least twice the number of calories that sitting on your couch and shopping from your laptop will burn.
So, if you are looking to work off a few of those slices of pie, ditch your mouse, tie up your sneakers and hit the mall for a shopping workout!
