in Chinese Food
- Most Chinese food is high in calories
and very high in fat. Up to 70-80 per cent of its calories come from
fat. To reduce calories when eating Chinese foods, follow these tips:
- Choose mostly vegetable foods.
These are usually lower in fat and calories.
- Choose boiled/steamed rice, NOT fried
This alone can cut calories by 50 per cent.
- Watch your portion size.
The bigger the portion, the higher the calories (and fat).
- Do not be tempted by high-calorie extras
like fried noodles or spring rolls.
- When in doubt, order soup, a vegetable
main course with steamed rice and of course tea!
- This way you can enjoy Chinese food
without wearing the calories on your butt.

Calorie-Counting Has Limits
Counting calories in Chinese food only
works up to a point: nutrition is also important. Under certain circumstances,
food energy cannot be properly metabolised without sufficient minerals
and vitamins. For example, the energy in "empty calorie" foods
becomes unavailable to our body and is stored as body fat until we ingest
the necessary minerals and vitamins at some later time. This is why a
healthy calorie-controlled eating plan should be based on nutrient-dense
meals and snacks.
