Halloween is a sweet time of year.  Kids are excited with trick or treating, the super-hero costumes come out of the closet, the air is typically cooler, leaves are changing and of course… THERE’S CANDY!!!!!!

I often get asked… so how long do I have to work out to burn off the basket of bite-sized candy bars I ate last night???

The answer depends on how many calories are in that basket of candy or the individual candy bar.  For example, usually a standard full-size Snickers bars has 250 calories and 12 grams of fat (4.5 being saturated fat).  Of course there are numerous exercises that can be done to minimize the calorie intake.  Spin for 30 minutes; go on the step machine for 40 minutes or run for 2.5 miles.   However, the saturated fat in the candy bar stays on/in your body and will remain there for a couple of days so….  Keep on burning those calories my friends!
