Are you a Fast Food Junkie?

To burn off the 410 calories in a Taco Bell Burrito Supreme, Beef, you'd have to dance for 70 minutes. Biking for 77 minutes will take care of a large order of fries from Wendy's.Here are some more popular fast foods—and an example of the exercise you have to do to burn them off.
1. Dunkin Don...uts Chocolate Frosted Donut (230 calories): 59 minutes of walking (3 mph).

2. McDonald's Egg McMuffin (300 calories): 32 minutes of running (5 mph).

3. Panera Chocolate Chipper (440 calories): 62 minutes of biking (10-11.9 mph).

4. One slice of a Pizza Hut Large Hand-Tossed Style Cheese Pizza (320 calories):

39 minutes of swimming (slow to moderate laps).

5. Starbucks Cinnamon Roll (500 calories, varies by location): 85 minutes of dancing.

6. Burger King Original Whopper With Cheese (770 calories): 94 minutes of swimming (slow to moderate laps).

7. 1/2 cup of Häagen-Dazs Vanilla Ice Cream (270 calories): 29 minutes of running (5 mph).

Note: The minutes of exercise are averages based on a 155-pound person. If you weigh more, you'll burn more calories per minute.

What do you think? If you're dieting, is the exercise you'd have to do after eating one of these foods worth the indulgence?
