Burn It to Earn It: The Girl Scout Cookie Edition

By , Melissa Rudy, Health & Fitness Journalist
There are certain things you can't escape in March: Green beer, spring cleaning, basketball brackets…and Girl Scout cookies. You don't have to live with a scout—or even know one—to feel the pressure to indulge. Between grocery-store stands and sweet-talking co-workers, not even the most disciplined dieter is safe from the sugary temptation.
 
Whether you're a sucker for Samoas or visions of (not-so) Thin Mints are dancing in your head, moderation is key. Before "just a couple" turns into an entire sleeve, take a look at how much exercise you'll have to do to burn off each serving.
