Have you ever thought about energy value of a doughnut and how long you need to exercise to “burn” its calories. The average size doughnut has a weight of about 70 g (depending on its size which varies from 60 to 80 g). Energy value of one doughnut (70 g) is approximately 290 kcal (because it is approximately 414 kcal/100 g of product).
Nutrients in one doughnut (per 100 g of product):
protein: 7.6 g
carbohydrates: 62,1 g
fat: 15.5 g
fiber: 1.5 g
Nutrients in one doughnut (at 70 g of the product):
protein: 5.3 g
carbohydrates: 43 g
fat: 10.9 g
fiber: 1 g
If you have any concerns arising from the possible consumption of excessive amounts of calories of doughnut, you can use the following examples of activities that when performed with a particular intensity and duration will make it possible to “burn” doughnut’s calories.
To burn the amount of energy similar to the amounts contained in one doughnut (290 calories), you can perform: how to burn calories with a donut
Variant of light intensity (duration of 60 minutes):
– walking at a speed of 5 km/h
– domestic house works
– cycling at a speed of 11 km/h
Variant of moderate intensity (duration of 35 minutes):
– quick walking at a speed of 7 km/h
– cycling at a speed of 16 km/h
– skating/roller skating (with moderately high intensity)
Variant of high intensity (duration 25 minutes):
– a very brisk walking at a speed of 8 km/h
– running at a speed of 9 km/h
– cycling at a speed of 21 km/h
– climbing stairs
– squash (intense)
A variant of the very high intensity (duration 21 minutes):
– running at a speed of 11 km/h
– swimming freestyle with a speed of 50 m/min
– squash (very intensive strong)
