Eat this - Suffer that

Ive decided how I can merge my candy obsession with my day job as a nutritionist! This segment is going to be called "eat this - suffer that". Basically, I will feature one candy a day, and show what type of activity you would have to do to burn it off - and for how long!  You can leave comments on whether you would eat it or leave it.

Segment 1 - Jelly beans

Jelly beans contain 41 calories on average for 10g
Average candy bag is 64g
Thus, a average bag of jelly beans would be 262 calories.

Now what do you ask can burn off 262 calories?

1 full hour of volleyball
an hour of gardening vigorously
1 hour walking
45 minutes on a stationary bike at a moderate pace

Now ask yourself - Eat it or Leave it?
