I happen to have gone to a local music festival in Fresno yesterday. It required a lot of walking or bike riding if you wanted to see all the bands you could. Which is awesome for me as I enjoy seeing local bands.
Also awesome is the festival took place in a area of Fresno with lots of Craft Beer options to stop and enjoy while walking around.
It made me think about how many calories I burned walking and how many I drank in.
Using this dead blog’s post about beer calories, here are the beers I had and the calories I obtained from them:
- Procreations Brewing “Next West Friend” WCIPA. 7.5% – 300 calories.
- There Does Not Exist Brewing “Stag” Pale Ale. 5.5% – 220 calories.
- Machinehead Brewing “10 Speed Machine” – 260 calories.
So I consumed 780 calories in that session.
I roughly walked five miles, going around to many different stages and venues while at Tower Porchfest in Fresno.
This is where it gets tricky as to how many calories I burned walking.
I don’t have a smart watch to tell me so I have to filter what the Internet says how many calories a dude my size would burn walking that much.
The number I came ip with is 450.
So 780 in, 450 burned, I carried over 330 calories. Not terrible. But more than I would expect with all of that walking.🚶
Maybe it’s best not to think about it and go enjoy another beer. 😆
Hey, but a good walk or meander through your neighborhood after a beer or two is a nice thing to do whether you’re worried about calories or not.
