Here are more frightening nutritional figures, from the Calorie King web site, about fat and calories in food that can be found at amusement parks, fairs, festivals, and carnivals:
|Deep Fried Twinkie|
Fried Snickers (5 oz.): 444 calories and 29 grams (g) fat
Fried Twinkie (2 oz.): 420 calories/34 g fat
Funnel cake (1): 760 calories/44 g fat
Twinkie Dog Sundae: 500 calories/14 g fat
Cotton candy: 171 calories/0 fat
Fried cheesecake (6 oz.): 655 calories/47 g fat
Foot-long hot dog and bun: 470 calories/26 g fat
Giant turkey leg: 1,136 calories/54 g fat
Eating these foods and more like them at a fair or carnival can wreak havoc on your waistline because they contain hundreds, sometimes thousands of calories and more than 10 grams of fat. If you participate in no exercise activities, it really is not a good idea to eat these foods AT ALL because you're not doing anything to get rid of them or work them off. Thus, OBESITY & OVERWEIGHT kick in.
