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? Trouble is, if you're like most of us, you have no idea how many calories you're actually consuming -- and all those little extras can really add up, says Charles Stuart Platkin, author of the new book The Diet Detective's Count Down. 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.
