Instead of fries, onion rings can be a popular go-to side choice. But how many calories can a vegetable-based food item like onion rings contain? In this video, Herbalife nutrition expert Susan Bowerman, MS, RD, CSSD, FAND, gives you the calorie value of a typical order of onions rings, and how much exercise it would take to burn off those calories.
Now, a large onion contains about 60 calories, but when it’s sliced up, battered, breaded, and deep fat fried those calories rise to about 500 calories. Around half of those come from fat, alone. There are certain fats that can be beneficial, as part of a healthy, balanced diet. For a better idea and guide into what types of fats to include—and avoid—in your diet, check out this article from Susan Bowerman: How much fat should you eat?
If you’re tempted to indulge in some crispy onion rings as part of your meal, here’s how much exercise a 150-pound (around 70 kilos) person would need to endure, nonstop to burn off those calories:
– 37 minutes of jump rope
– 55 minutes of ice hockey
– 63 minutes of swimming
– 80 minutes of mowing the lawn
– 98 minutes of belly-dancing
– 3 hours of yoga
