How Much Exercise Does It Take to Burn Off These 13 Classic Super Bowl Party Foods?

You don’t need a strict Super Bowl diet, but knowing more about what you’re eating is never a bad thing.

Artichoke Dip

Artichoke dip is delicious, but at 50 calories per tablespoon (not including whatever you’re using to dip into it) our woman will need to go on a leisurely walk with the dog(s) for a little under an hour to burn off a three-tablespoon portion. For our man? A 40-minute walk with Fido should do.

Chili

Chili recipes vary, but just under a cup of what could be considered “regular” chili will bring in around 290 calories. An hour and 15 minutes of volleyball in the yard will burn this many calories for our man, while our woman can burn them by playing for an hour and 35 minutes.

Deviled Eggs

One deviled egg has 64 calories. By jogging at 5 miles per hour for just six minutes, our woman can burn one deviled egg off. As for the man, he’ll need to jog at the same speed for about five minutes.

Fried Green Beans

Fried green beans aren’t as guilt-free as their non-fried counterparts, but at just 110 calories per seven pieces, burning them off isn’t too drastic an undertaking. Riding a stationary bike at a moderate pace for 10 minutes should help our man burn off seven fried green beans. Our woman can do the same for less than 15 minutes.

Guacamole

Guacamole recipes can vary, but on average a 100-gram serving will contain about 111 calories. For our man, swimming freestyle for 10 minutes is enough to burn the guac off. For our woman, 13 minutes of swimming laps will do the trick.

Hot Wings

If you’re enjoying baked hot wings on Super Bowl Sunday, you should account for about 50 calories per wing. So, let’s say you have six wings. In order to burn off 300 calories, our woman can jog in place for 30 minutes. Our man will need to jog in place for 22 minutes.

jalapeno poppers

Jalapeño Poppers

Bacon-wrapped, cream cheese-stuffed jalapeño poppers are 45 calories each. No one eats just one popper, but let’s assume our man and woman aren’t spicy food lovers. So, in order to burn off four poppers, he can play darts for a little over an hour. She’ll need to play for an hour and 20 minutes.

Mac and Cheese

Macaroni and cheese is a comfort-food staple in homes nationwide. This won’t change for the Super Bowl. At around 420 calories per cup, homemade mac and cheese requires our man to jump rope for 24 minutes and our woman to do so for about 32 minutes.

Meatballs

Bite-sized, appetizer-portioned meatballs are roughly 240 calories for a serving of six. If our woman does calisthenics (at a very moderate rate) for a little over an hour, she’ll burn off six mini meatballs. Our man will need to do so for closer to 50 minutes.

Nachos

Whatever your favorite nacho recipe may be, we can estimate that somewhere around eight loaded nachos will be close to 345 calories. To burn off eight nachos, our man would need to lift weights for an hour and a half. Our woman could lightly pump iron for just over two hours.

Pizza

Your run-of-the-mill chain pizza joint’s cheese pizza clocks in at roughly 210 calories per slice. For him, this means somewhere between 15 and 16 minutes of playing tennis. She’ll require 20 minutes on the court.

Pizza Rolls

Often hard to stop eating, premade pizza rolls run at 210 calories per every six rolls. That means our woman will need to play a friendly game of ping pong for about 50 minutes if she can limit herself to six pizza rolls. Our man can check out a little before 40 minutes if he enjoys six as well.

soft pretzels

Soft Pretzels

A moderately small, homemade soft pretzel will contain about 130 calories. We bet one won’t be enough, so for argument’s sake our woman and man will have three apiece. To burn off 390 calories of soft pretzels, our man can hit a punching bag (this may be quite necessary if his team loses) for 40 minutes. Our woman will need to hit the bag for about 54 minutes.
