In just a few more days, we will be celebrating Chinese New Year, and just like any other festive celebration, food will always be a huge part of it. All of us are aware that the calorie count of the food during CNY can be a bit high.

So let’s see what the caloric count of CNY foods is. To put things into perspective, let’s see how long you need to walk in order to burn them off.

Here’s how long you need to walk if you eat a specific type of CNY food, based on a guide provided by the Straits Times. The calorie count is based on a 55kg woman walking at a moderate pace.

The buttery smell coupled with the tangy pineapple filling is always a delightful experience during CNY. However, do not binge on these as you might cause your blood sugar level to reach an all-time high.

3. Mandarin Orange (39 kcal per orange)

Most probably the healthiest CNY snack on the list. Mandarin oranges contain high levels of vitamins and nutrients. They are very low in fat too. But, don’t overeat as you might get a sore throat later.

In order to burn it off, you need to walk for 12 minutes.

4. Bak Kwa (370 kcal per slice)

Whenever it is almost Chinese New Year, you will see stalls popping up selling these everywhere. Eating these slices of sticky, chewy and sweet barbecued pork jerky can be heavenly, but bak kwa sneakily has the biggest calorie count. Also, you will definitely not makan one slice je. So watch out OK?

In order to burn off just one slice, you need to walk for a whopping one hour and 53 minutes.

5. Love Letter/ Kuih Kapit (56 kcal per piece)

Another staple for CNY; this thin, crispy, crumbly and light snack is not actually light on the calorie count. So be wary when eating them, you might terlajak and eat a lot!

In order to burn it off, you need to walk for 17 minutes.

So now that you know how long you need to walk in order to burn off those calories you are going to accumulate this Chinese New Year, approach the feast carefully and enjoy the food in a moderate fashion. But most importantly, enjoy the moments shared with your loved ones.

Happy Chinese New Year from all of us at WOB!
