Bowl Your Way to a Better Body

Believe it or not, bowling is actually a calorie burning activity. According to an article in the February 2009 issue of Prevention Magazine ("Your Winter Weight-Loss Fix," pg. 77), bowling for two hours can help you burn a whopping 400 calories. I wonder how accurate that number is? If you're on a league and really know how to score, I can see that being true. BUT, if you're like me and like to throw the ball granny style, I don't really see how that can be considered exercise. Yet, since I'm all for engaging in activities that are fun and don't feel like work, I don't see how it would hurt to give it a try!
