    Sigh...pizza and tortilla chips are my favorite things on that list and they just happen to have the worst quantity to calorie ratio.

    Seriously though, the calories in tortilla chips is just stupid. At least pizza can be a full meal.

    I'd have to walk an hour or more for a can of coke, the exercise cals are sort of meaningless.

    I actually hate looking at food in terms of how much I need to work off in order to consume it.

    There's also the loose insinuation that you get exactly as hungry for calories as what you burn, which is far from the truth.

    true and its also funny to me that we will never be able to burn exactly what we plan to eat as the image implies. Exercise burns are just estimations.

    I might argue that the general culture is arguing to be right rather than to be helpful... but then I'm just feeding into that culture, aren't I?

    But to your point... I don't disagree. I'm merely suggesting that it's not always necessary. Generalizations can be perfectly fine at times.

    Are 'right' and 'helpful' mutually exclusive? I would definitely argue that when it happens being wrong and helpful is accidental.

    They can be. We might be getting to that point here.
