How much exercise to work off that chocolate chip cookie?
Want to know how long you’ll need to ride a bicycle to burn off the calories of a chocolate chip cookie? In this video, Herbalife registered dietitian Susan Bowerman, gives you the nutrition facts on chocolate chip cookies and how much exercise it would take to burn off the calories.
A chocolate chip cookie, like the one in this video, contains about 310 calories. If you weigh around 150 pounds (roughly 70 kilos), in order to burn off those 310 calories you would need to do:
- 23 minutes of water polo
- 33 minutes of basketball
- 35 minutes of backpacking
- 53 minutes of strength training
- 1 hour and 10 minutes of bike riding or yoga
If you decide not to do any exercise at all, it would still take your body 3 1/2 hours to digest and burn those calories.
