It turns out that, “How Many Burpees to Burn Off a Donut?” is an extremely popular search on Google.
I’m forever checking out the weird and wonderful things that we tend to search for via the Big G, and this one definitely caught my eye.
I note that it is the US spelling, i.e. donut, and not the plain old “doughnut”, as we refer to it in the UK.
However, I’m still intrigued.
I’m not exactly a great one for eating donuts.
In fact, I would hazard a guess it’s been at least 2-3 years since I last indulged.
Nevertheless, after the research and writing I’m about to do, I can definitely see a nice cup of coffee and donut in my very immediate future.
How Many Burpees to Burn Off a Donut?
The old-fashioned donut from Dunkin’ Donuts contains 310 calories. The average male weight is 77.3kg (170lbs), and he will need to do 230 burpees to burn off this donut. The average female weight is 68.5kg (150.7lbs), and she will need to do 261 burpees.
The Donut-Eating Stats
Okay, I had to do some research to make this as information-packed as possible.
So, I checked out the World Data Info for the average weight for men and women.
This is broken down into 23 different areas around the world, so I just took the average of these.
I then checked out Dunkin’ Donuts online to see what some of their most popular donuts were.
Give me a couple of hours, and I’ll be checking them out in person.
I have previously spoken of the research that Dr. Jeff Godin did in 2014.
He basically wanted to know how many calories were burned by body weight for burpees.
I have written about this in more detail in my article, How Many Calories Does 100 Burpees Burn?
The “Average Person” Results
The average male weight in the world is 77.3kg or 170lbs.
Whereas, the average female weight in the world is 68.5kg or 150.7lbs.
Dr. Godin’s calculations were based on weight in pounds for people weighing between 120-210lbs, in 10-pound increments.
Therefore, (for ease) I have based all the following calculations on a man weighing 170lbs and a woman weighing 150lbs.
Although, there are many more factors to take into consideration, I wanted to keep this as easy as possible.
So, our man will be burning 1.35 calories for every burpee he performs.
Our woman will be burning 1.19 calories for every burpee she performs.
I have used Dunkin’ Donuts “Old-Fashioned” donut for my initial calculation above.
I guess this is what we would refer to as a sugar doughnut in the UK.
For 30 seconds of pure pleasure you’ll be stacking up 310 calories.
Therefore, our man will need to do 230 burpees to burn off the old-fashioned donut.
And unfortunately, our women will need to wrack up 261 burpees.
I bet that donut doesn’t seem so alluring now, does it?
You may want check out Matt Stonie eating 10,000+ calories of Dunkin’ Donuts just below.
12,880 calories to be exact (that will be 9,541 burpees for Matt if anyone’s interested).
Definitely NOT Mr. Average.

How Many Burpees to Burn Off a Jelly Donut?
Next on the list we have the good old jelly donut.
Or as we would refer to it in the UK, the jam doughnut.
It surprised me to discover that the jelly donut only contains 270 calories, so less than the old-fashioned donut.
I’ve never actually had a jelly donut from Dunkin’ Donuts, so I’m not entirely sure what to expect.
I tend to favour some of the donuts further down in this list.
However, here in the UK, the “jelly donut” would typically be smothered in sugar too.
Anyway, back to the burpees.
Our average man would need to do 200 burpees to burn off the jelly donut.
And our average women would need to perform 227 burpees.
How Many Burpees to Burn Off a Cookie Dough Donut?
The cookie dough donut happens to be stuffed with cookie-dough buttercream and covered in chocolate chips.

This is going to take a huge effort and some serious fat-burning exercise.

How Many Burpees to Burn Off a Chocolate Glazed Donut?
One of the most popular offerings at Dunkin’ Donuts happens to be the chocolate glazed donut.
The donut is more reminiscent of a hot cocoa mix, as opposed to a chocolate smothering.
The chocolate glazed donut however will set you back 360 calories.
Our man and our woman are going to need to do 267 and 303 burpees respectively to burn off a chocolate glazed donut.
Burpees are hard enough as it is, so hitting the 300 mark is going to take some doing.

How Many Burpees to Burn Off a Strawberry Frosted With Sprinkles Donut?
I’ll admit that I’m very partial to any type of dessert with strawberries or strawberry flavouring.
So, I was pleased to hear that a strawberry frosted donut with sprinkles was a lowly 270 calories.
Therefore, exactly the same number of calories as the jelly donut.
That means that Mr. and Mrs. will need to do 200 and 227 burpees respectively to burn off this donut.
How Many Burpees to Burn Off a Custard Donut?
I’ve moved away from Dunkin’ Donuts for the last two offerings.
In fact, these are two doughnuts that you’ll tend to find in the UK.
Firstly, we have the custard doughnut.
This also happens to be the “leanest” doughnut on the list, as it only contains 267 calories.
Unfortunately, “lean” or otherwise, there’s still plenty of work for our burpee participants to do.
Our man is going to have to crank out 198 burpees, and our woman 224.
How Many Burpees to Burn Off a Cream-Filled Donut?
Finally, we have the type of donut that I tend to go for.
Easily available at most supermarkets in the UK, we have the cream-filled doughnut.
I do have a penchant for anything filled with cream.
I’ll openly admit it is one of my weaknesses and goes a great way to satisfy my sweet tooth.
The cream-filled doughnut will set you back 320 calories.
So, we’re looking at 237 and 269 burpees respectively.
Well, I don’t know about you, but I really fancy a donut (doughnut) now.
I happen to have a Dunkin’ Donut store nearby, so that is definitely my next port of call.
I didn’t want to get into the ins-and-outs of it being extremely difficult to out-train a bad diet.
So, I have solely concentrated on how many burpees it would take to burn off each individual donut.
As you can see, there’s a huge amount of effort required for such a short timespan of pleasure.
But, who am I to judge?
I see nothing wrong with the occasional treat every now and then, as long as it is only “occasional”.
