Sayali Naik

Junk food has become a part of the modern and fast life. However, tasty fast food is alarmingly unhealthy. And to get an idea of why you shouldn’t have it so often, you must know how many calories it contains and how it affects your health and also how to burn the calories coming from it.

Say ‘Fast food’ or ‘Junk food’ and the first thing that comes to mind is greasy, oily, and unhealthy garb. Okay, so we know fast food is unhealthy, but do we really know what we are consuming? How many calories does it contain? Or what are its ill effects on your health? Or how to burn it?

Here are some of the common fast food options and the activities you need to do to burn it:

SAMOSA-PAAV

The lip-smacking and favourite chai-time snack of Indian Families, one samosa gives you a whopping 400 calories. The calories coming from the added sweet and sour chutney and the Paav (bread). Oh, and yes don’t forget the additional bad cholesterol it brings along. The amount of exercise/activity needed to burn these calories is immense. That could count to doing good weight training, swimming, cardio for an hour at high intensity.
