Halloween is only one week away and as an adult, I'll admit that I sneak in a piece or two (or maybe more) of candy as I hand out the candy to the trick-or-treaters. Then there is November 1st and all that leftover candy to dive into! Before you do, let us put a big bah hum bug into your Halloween.


Men's Health has broken it down for us. This is an interesting, yet discouraging look at how much exercise you'll need to do to burn off that Halloween candy.

Here are a few examples:

5 Mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (my favorite) 220 calories, 13 grams of fat, running 17 minutes, swimming 15 minutes, cycling 39 minutes, lifting 26 minutes or 17 minutes of sparring.

2 Fun Size Kit Kat Bars (another favorite of mine) 210 calories, 11 grams of fat, running 16 minutes, swimming 15 minutes, cycling 37 minutes, lifting for 24 minutes or 16 minutes of sparring.

These statistics are based on a 180 pound male. Running at an 11.5 minute mile and cycling at an easy pace of under 10 MPH.
