How to Work Off That Donut
You ate the donut anyway. After reading all the healthy eating advice on HubPages, you still ate the donut. Fortunately, now you can find the calorie count of donuts, or anything else in a fast food joint, by reading the info in the store or online.
I checked donuts online from one particular place. The glazed had 220 calories, the jelly-filled had 260, and the glazed cake donut had 280 (and the list of ingredients was horrifying).
Now you want to work off those empty calories. Below is a list of what you have to do to burn off the calories from consuming that lone donut ranging from 220 to 280 calories.
