Even if you’re dedicated to your fitness regime and healthy eating, you might be tempted to allow some leeway for an Easter treat.
But before you crack open that chocolate egg, it might be worth noting just how much exercise you’d have to do to burn off all those extra calories.
Experts from the online local services marketplace Bidvine.com have calculated the calories in the UK’s 20 favourite Easter eggs – and worked out how long you’d have to spend running, skipping, swimming, walking, cycling, squatting or doing burpees to burn each one off.
A Cadbury’s Dairy Milk egg is the worst offender in the top 20, meaning you’d have to hit the running track for three whole hours to burn off the 1,758 calories it contains.
Even the least calorific option – a Smarties eggs – requires one hour 12 minutes of running to cancel out. But if you’re a fan of swimming, a doable 48 minutes in the pool is required.
