During the Fourth of July holiday many people spend the day eating burgers and hot dogs. Burgers and hot dogs are not always the most healthy things to eat, especially if you are on a diet.

Here are rough estimates how much exercise it will take to burn off the food you ate at the BBQ.

  • It would take about 3 1/2 miles of walking to burn off the calories consumed in a hot dog
  • It would take about 8 miles of walking to burn off the calories consumed in a burger
  • It would take about an hour of playing golf to burn off the calories consumed in a hot dog
  • It would take about 2 1/2 hours of playing golf to burn off the calories consumed in a burger
  • It would take about 23 minutes of swimming to burn off the calories consumed in a hot dog
  • It would take about 51 minutes of swimming to burn off the calories consumed in a burger

*The amount of calories burned in a particular exercise can change depending on a person's weight and how much effort they are putting forth into the activity.

*The amount of calories on the particular burger or hot dog depends on the size of the food and how many toppings are on it.
