How much are those apple fritters going to 'cost' you in calories?

So you indulged in a pair of apple fritters. (No one is blaming you.) But now you want to undo the damage.

Each fritter is about 300 calories, according to CalorieKing.com. Here are some ways a 145-pound person could burn off 600 calories. The precise number of calories a person burns are influenced by the person‘s age, body weight, gender, activity level and movement efficiency. Use this only as a guide.
