Fast Food

How many calories would you burn if?


[dropcap]T[/dropcap]here are moments when the fear of looking fat in a dress can’t stop you from gobbling down junk food. All those ‘diet motivational quotes’ go right down the drain when your eyes latch onto delicious, fattening food.

Even the worst crimes can be redeemed, but at a price. Read carefully, here are the punishments for your calorific misconducts.

1. It may have been due to a rare moment of weakness, but you still said ‘Yes’ to a slice of pepperoni pizza.

Calorie count:

290 calories.


There is no point sobbing now. You can get creative with the way you want to burn off those calories. 60 minutes of fast dancing or 90 minutes of vigorous cleaning of the house will let go off those pesky calories.

2. ‘You didn’t eat those doughnuts, you say?’ The chocolate sauce just happened to jump off those doughnuts and plaster itself all over your mouth. I understand.

Calorie Count:

260 calories


Assuming you had only one, 25 minutes of energetic running ought to rectify the problem. Go and make your gym teacher proud!

3. Ate a whole bar of chocolate? Didn’t bother to share?

You’re in trouble now.

Calorie Count:

Since you didn’t share the calories, the price to get rid of those calories will be to climb up and down two flights of stairs continuously for 13 minutes.

4. It’s a cause for celebration so it is understood that you had no other choice but to gobble down the cake with a guilty conscience.

Calorie Count:

312 calories


50 minutes of hiking or 45 minutes of grooming the yard, the price has to be paid.

‘With the burger.’

Well, this can be fun. Not.

Run 7 miles on the treadmill. If you’ve eaten more, run more.

5 hours of slow jogging without complaining.
