Burning Off High-Calorie Foods: Fair Foods
Fair foods are famously fattening; we'll clue you in to their calorie count, and just what it takes to burn each one off.
Is your family hitting the local fair circuit this summer? Carnival concessions are famously fattening. We’re not saying to boycott fair foods all together but since these treats don’t come with a food label, we’ll fill you in on just how many calories you're gobbling down, and what it would take to burn them off. As always, moderation is key!
Everyone burns calories a little differently, the values below are averages based on a 155-pound person.

Make your summer fun a little easier on the waistline by using these tips.
- Stick to water and avoid extra calories from soda or other sugary drinks.
- Pick ONE favorite guilty pleasure and indulge in only that.
- SHARE - nobody needs to eat an entire fried Twinkie by themselves!
- Eat before you head to the fair – an empty stomach will make you more prone to overdo it.
