Study To Look At Whether Physical Activity Food Labels Will Motivate Smarter Eating

October 14, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
U.S. researchers, armed with a $2.33 million NIH grant, will be studying whether “physical activity food labels” can help curb the obesity epidemic. The idea is to put the amount of physical activity necessary to burn off the calories consumed in a particular food. The calorie-burning activity would be based on a 30-minute-a-mile pace, not very athletic or vigorous. The researchers believe that physical activity labels will allow people to appreciate “the trade-offs of high-calorie foods” and get them to make smarter food choices.
