People babble about exercise regarding weight control. The media is humping about this nonsense constantly. Weight loss is impossible by exercising.

Example:
Donut Plain 70g. It takes 57 minutes of walking at 5 km pre hour to eliminate one donut. This is not waddling. Most people waddle km per hours.
Pizza – 2 Slices 94 minutes.
Cola – 1 Can 26 minutes.

Weight loss is a simple equation. Consume more calories than you burn = weight gain. Consume less calories then you burn = weight loss. The whole weight loss industry is a money making machine.

Exercise, though, keeps you fit - quite an attractive reason for doing it, in whatever form. Weight loss is also a good thing, assuming you're overweight in the first place. In which case, go on a diet (a proper one, though, not a doohicky new-world stupid one with the description macro-anything). Eating less fat usually does it. If that's not quick enough, cut down the carbohydrates temporarily.

Me thinks the essence of the article is:
But in order to persist with a diet, many of us include food treats to keep ourselves from getting bored. The problem with this is, once we’ve consumed a treat we have to burn it off.

In this article we tell you how much exercise it takes to burn off common food treats so you can decide whether they are worth it or not.

well said!
Put yourself in front of the mirror and jump: all what you see bouncing you don't need (well, in big lines :wink: ).
Once you pass 45 years old or so you can survive on very little food (albeit varied). By building fat your body is telling you that you don't need so much food!!!
Your body will be very understanding of the odd treat if you generally intake the right amount of food.
This is my own deduction but I am pretty sure I am right.
