What do calorie counts really mean? Today, a concept gaining popularity is "sweat equivalents". It's very simple: an estimate of the calories burned per minute in a particular activity expressed as time spent in that activity. So, if your calorie consumption were average on Thanksgiving you would need to run for 7.7 hours or cycle for 15 hours or swim for 10.6 hours to burn off those calories. Thought provoking indeed!
