Nothing is better than homemade guacamole with corn tortilla chips while watching the big game with friends. Did you know that one serving size of tortilla chips is around 7-12 chips (depending on the brand and how big the chips are). When was the last time you ate just 7 chips?

After doing some calculations of what people consume while watching NCAA® March Madness® basketball games, we came up with a list of exercises you’ll need to do to burn off those game day snacks.

Sometimes we can get a little carried away with the “good stuff” and not even know it! Everything in moderation is okay, going overboard is what can hurt your calorie count for the day! Check how much exercise you would have to do if you ate two slices of pepperoni pizza and other game-day snacks!
