Here are some classic Easter treats, and how long it would take to burn off those chocolaty calories!

Food for thought

For 'proper' size Easter Eggs, seeing how much exercise you need to do to burn off the calories is a very good incentive to spread the eating enjoyment over a few days. Being conscious to 'up' your activity level at the same time will really help to offset the extra calories and ensure no permanent damage is done to your weight loss progress!
