How Far Do You Have To Walk To Burn Off Your Easter Candy?

Running Easter  BunnyIf you want to attempt to walk off the chocolate bunnies, jellybeans, and Peeps:

It takes a herculean effort to walk off lots of calories. It’s easier and more efficient to cut down on portion size. In case you want to make an attempt “to walk” off your candy indulgence:

If this is the candy in your Easter basket — and you eat it all:

  • 25 small jellybeans
  • 5 Peeps
  • 8 malted milk robins eggs
  • 1 ounce chocolate bunny
  • 1 Cadbury Creme Egg
  • 4 Lindt Chocolate Carrots

that adds up to 990 calories. You will need to walk 9.9 miles, 15.96 kilometers, or 19,800 steps, assuming you cover one mile in 2,000 steps.

If this is in your basket:

  • 25 small jellybeans
  • 5 Peeps
  • 5 marshmallow chicks
  • 8 malted milk robins eggs
  • 1 large 7 ounce chocolate bunny
  • 1 chocolate-covered marshmallow bunny
  • 1 Cadbury Creme Egg
  • 1 Cadbury Caramel Egg

that comes to 2076 calories. You will need to walk 20.76 miles, 33.48 kilometers, or 41,520 steps, assuming you cover one mile in 2,000 steps.

If you’re going “light” and only eat:

  • 25 small jelly beans
  • 5 Peeps
  • 1 medium (1 3/4 ounce) hollow chocolate bunny
  • 1 Cadbury Creme Egg

you would rack up 730 calories and you will need to walk 7.3 miles, 11.77 kilometers, or 14,600 steps — assuming you cover one mile in 2,000 steps — to walk off that number of calories. Sounds like a lot, but it is very doable over a few days.

Holidays and Celebrations

Holidays are days of celebration. But remember that a holiday is just one day and our bodies can easily compensate for a day of indulgence. Problems start when the holiday eating keeps going and going — which is easy to do when there are cabinets stuffed with Easter candy and bowls full of it every where you turn.

So arm yourself with some information, enjoy your holiday, and don’t feel obliged to eat every piece of candy in sight – the first bites always taste the best!

Happy Easter
