Why We SHOULDN’T Be Afraid To Indulge This Easter

“A moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips.” It’s a phrase we all heard growing up and one that makes most people think twice about indulging in all the chocolate in the world at Easter.

The thing is, this phrase has recently been proven to be true as new research reveals the actual consequences of merrily living off Hot Cross Buns and chocolate eggs for a day.

And, it doesn’t look good…

It may take just a few minutes to gorge yourself on that creamy, chocolaty and deliciously sweet egg, but fitness experts reckon you will have to run solidly for 30 minutes just to burn through 300 of the 1000 calories consumed.

(Yes, really – one large Easter egg can contain up to 1000 calories – that’s about the same as two Big Macs)

On top of that, your lovely lamb roast dinner you’ve been looking forward to since Christmas contains, on average, 800 calories.

But, there is a way you can enjoy your Easter Simnel cake without too much guilt hanging over you…

The trick is to be prepared to graft hard after your day of indulgence and put all those extra calories to good use by working on some serious gains!

And, at the end of the day, a little indulgence isn’t going to kill you.  So, you can either wallow in misery for eating that extra crème egg, or you can kick back, relax and enjoy one day off your plan.

We know which we’d rather do…

However, if you are concerned about what all that lovely sugar, chocolate, cake, lamb, trimmings and eggs upon eggs upon eggs is doing to your body you’ll be thrilled to know that we have broken it all down for you.

Just how many minutes will you have to HIIT it, power walk or row to burn off your Easter day?

Chocolate Bunny

The Golden Bunny

In recent years the Lindt Golden Bunny and its little bell has become a symbol of Easter – a very tasty symbol of Easter, but this yum-fest of a chocolate creation contains 300 calories per bunny.

So, in order to burn off that golden delight, you will have to crank up the treadmill and perform an intense HIIT session for at least 30 minutes – that’s tough!
