From the main menu select Calorie Challenge and choose Peppy Pizza as your opponent (far right). You need to burn 238 calories in 30 minutes to beat Peppy Pizza. Mini-games will be randomly selected, so if you're trying to do this legitimately you'll need a bit of luck. Now, I say "legitimately" because there is a much easier way to burn calories than actually playing the mini-games properly.

For most of the mini-games, you simply want to swing your arms across your body, as if you're hugging yourself. Give it a try now if you like, you probably deserve a hug. While swinging your arms and hugging yourself, kick with your legs. Your leg movement doesn't need to be excessive, just enough for the game to register that you're moving them. So no River Dancing. Unless the mood strikes you, in which case, go for it.

The games where the above method doesn't work too well are Javelin and Hurdles/Rapid Runner. For Javelin, if you swing your arms too far across your body, you will sometimes grab the javelin. You don't want this, as you will be unable to kick your legs (it will make you run). Instead, swing your arms straight back and forth. Hip thrusting optional.

Hurdles and Rapid Runner are both great mini-games for burning calories. However, they do require a lot of exertion. You can hold a controller and hit the guide button if you become tired. Hit the guide button again when you feel ready. When running, you want to get your knees up as high as possible and swing your arms as if you were marching. If at any stage your self-worth drops due to how silly you look, resume hugging yourself.

Using this guide you should not have any problems burning enough calories to beat Peppy Pizza. The achievement will pop when the timer reaches 30 minutes and you are taken to the results screen, not when you pass 238 calories.
