Surprising calorie bombs: A new book offers exercise equivalents of 7,500 common foods.

You're out, you're hungry, so you grab a bite to eat. No big deal, right?

Here, the lowdown on what you'll need to do, exercise wise, to burn off your favorite snacks, desserts, candies, and beverages.

Note: All exercise equivalents are in minutes.
