It’Sugar Candy Store

It’Sugar Candy Store

Spider-Man: Far From Home was awesome! But our date was far from over. Universal CityWalk still had much to offer. As we wandered around, we stumbled upon some interesting shops, including It’Sugar — and no, that’s not a typo.

It’Sugar is a large candy store that offers specialty sweets, some of which I had never even heard of before. The wife spotted the store and quickly led me into it. I was initially reluctant to follow, but she was so excited! It’s difficult to say no to an excited wife.

The thing about candy is that it’s delicious, but unless you have Mrs. Ramdolfi’s metabolism, you are certain to pay the price. If you’re like me, you were not blessed with the genetic material required to consume sweets and process them like they’re veggies. As such, I was not amused by the plethora of colorful temptations surrounding me — but wife was.

The truth is that I have actively been trying to get back in shape for the last few months, so partaking in any of these treats would be counterproductive to say the least — even if they do have all sorts of Jelly Belly jelly bean flavors including Krispy Kreme!

It’Sugar was a fun stop, but ultimately we chose to be responsible adults, with aging bodies that prefer nutrition over tasty empty calories, and leave before we changed our minds.

Tell me, do you have a sweet tooth? What is your favorite candy? Are you still able to consume sugar confections without gaining a pound, or have you reached the age of conscious eating?

How Far Would You Need To Walk To Burn Off A Pizza in LA?

How Far Would You Need To Walk To Burn Off A Pizza in LA?

This should explain my relationship with food rather well. As someone who possesses the will power to abstain from buying unhealthy foods, but has none of the will power to refuse the same foods when given to me, I wondered, just how far would I have to walk to burn off my favorite cheat meal: An entire Meat Lover’s pizza from Pizza Hut.

If one slice is 470 calories, then the 8-slice pizza is a whopping 3,760 calories, or about 2 days of your recommended caloric intake.

How Many Calories Does Walking Burn?

First we need to learn how much a person weighs. According to a 2012 study by the BMC Public Health Journal, the average North American weight was 80.7 kg, or 177.9 lbs.

Let’s be conservative and use the 180 lbs value because let’s be honest, for every 120 lbs healthy Angelino, there are two 205 pound Americans, like myself. After all, 177 lbs is the average, not the median.

Now lets burn calories. According to a Road Runner’s-Certified Marathon Coach, a 180 lbs person can expect to burn 96 calories by walking a mile at 2.5 to 3.5 miles per hour, which includes humans’ preferred walking speed (3.1 mph).

How Many Miles Would You Need To Walk?

With 3,760 calories to burn, and a rate of 96 calories per mile, an average American would have to walk approximately 40 miles (39.17 to be precise), or about the equivalent of walking from Santa Monica to Disneyland! If you added stuffed-crust, garlic bread, or had a soda, you may want to consider making that a round trip.

Finally, with all the math done, lets answer this post’s question. In order for you (as an average American) to burn off a pizza by walking in LA, you would have to walk just about the entirety of LA from end to end.

The conclusion, unfortunately, is to enjoy pizza in moderation. That is, unless you live on Ocean Avenue, own an annual Disney Pass, and your name is Forest Gump.

Tell me, would you walk 40 miles to justify eating an entire pizza? What is the furthest you have walked or ran? While we’re on the topic, what’s your favorite cheat meal?
