Here's how long it will take you to burn off that free McMuffin...

DUN DUN DUN.

WERE YOU ONE of the lucky ducks to snag yourself a free McMuffin in McDonald’s in Ireland this morning?

Do you have a bit of melty cheese left on your chin after devouring one whole?

But what’s the damage?

According to McDonald’s Ireland, a sausage and egg McMuffin contains 430 calories per serving. To burn that off, you would need to…

  • Go on a brisk 2-hour walk 
  • Swim freestyle laps for over 1 hour
  • Do some vigorous work on the rowing machine for 52 minutes
  • Go rollerskating for 63 minutes

Meanwhile, a bacon and egg McMuffin is a slightly leaner affair and has 345 calories. To shake that off, you can…

  • Go for an 86 minute bike ride 
  • Or a 44 minute jog
  • Bate a punching bag for 1 hour 

As always, it’s worth remembering that the number of calories burned is contingent on a number of factors, including height and weight.

Also, the occasional dirty breakfast never did anyone any harm.

All figures included here are based on a person who weighs 130lbs. For further information, visit here.
