Well, have no fear! This article helped me create the following info-graphic!
Average Total Calories Consumed
Fourth of July
New Year's Eve
St. Paddy's Day
Cinco de Mayo
The best part? Where the Fourth of July calories usually come from:
- 155 calories per hot dog
- 317 calories per cheese burger
- 277 calories per slice of apple pie
- 358 calories per cup of pasta salad
- 150 calories per beer
I'd like to contest the above list. Where the hell are the s'mores?!
With our without the extra sweets, I just have one word of advice. Don't partake in the 150 calorie option above and then light off fire works. It won't go as well as you'd imagine it to be:
Happy 4th of July. Celebrate wisely, my friends.
