Masters Champions Dinners – Infographic

Masters Tournament Champions Dinners

One of the great sports traditions wrapped up yesterday as Adam Scott of Australia donned the green jacket at Augusta National Golf Club becoming the 77th person and first Australian ever to win the Master’s Tournament.  Did you know, however, that each year on the Tuesday before the tournament begins the past year’s champion plays host to a Champions Dinner attended by past winners and select VIP guests?  They also get to choose the menu which usually is the golfer’s favorite foods or something  indicative of their homeland..  Today’s infographic from cable.tv highlights the past 20 selections along the calorie counts for those of us watching our waistlines.

Caffeine vs. Calories — Infographic

“Buzz” v. “Bulge”

If you are anything like me, you need your daily dose of caffeine to function, but are desperately trying (in my case someone unsuccessfully) to watch your caloric intake and “battle the bulge”.  Have you ever considered the number of calories that are in some of our “high octane” caffeinated beverages though?  Today’s infographic tries to put this in a little perspective, showing some of the most popular drinks with corresponding food items and exercises needed to burn off those calories. (Low calorie, high caffeine drinks in the upper left to high caffeine, low calories drinks in the lower right.  Well balanced beverages hang toward the middle of the graph. [VIA]
