Ever wonder how long you'd have to workout to burn off indulgences, such as Caffe Mocha or chocolate truffles. Read on to see how much exercise a 150 pound person would have to do to burn off some of lifes' food 'treasures':

1 slice of cheese pan pizza = 1 hour + 10 minutes of tennis (650cals)

20 oz Caffe Mocha with Whip Creme = 40 minutes of swimming laps(400 cals)

2 Godiva Chocolate Truffles = 20 minutes of biking (200 cals)

1 tablespoon of oil = 30 minutes of raking leaves (120 cals)

1 bagel & creme cheese = 2 hours and 30 minutes of dancing (500 calories)

1 slice of NYork Style Cheesecake = 2 hours and 40 minutes of walking (700 cals)

Next time you reach for the treats, keep the amount of exercise time in mind and make sure it's REALLY worth it.
