What if the heat energy of food was not expressed in calories but "daily activities"?

So instead of
* chocolate cake : 500 cal/serving

You had
* chocolate cake : 5k run/serving

Or instead of
* celery : -1 cal/serving

You had
* celery : eat jellybean and lie down / serving

Do you think that would help some people a bit more with portion control?

It might at the very least help celery farmers.
