Keep Your Gut Happy & Stay In Shape This CNY
We may have made resolutions to eat healthy and lose weight at the start of 2023, but with Chinese New Year celebrations right upon us, that may be easier said than done. For many of us, Chinese New Year has always meant gaining a few extra pounds, thanks to the delicious CNY goodies available at every house.
We check out the calorie content in some popular CNY snacks and the exercise you may need to do to avoid weight gain.
Read on to find out how to prevent over-indulging on CNY snacks.
Take out the treats onto a small plate or a tissue paper, and only snack from there. Eating straight out of the jar can make you less conscious of how much you are eating.
Do workout within 8-10 hours after feasting as this is the most efficient window after you consume excess calories. The rate of caloric burn will depend on the exercise intensity, so try throwing in a mix of high-intensity cardio and strength training!
- Stay hydrated
- Drinking water right before a meal helps fill your stomach and can suppress appetite to ensure you don't over-eat. Staying hydrated throughout the day also maintains metabolism and boosts detoxification. Avoid sugary, packet drinks this CNY and ask for water or even Chinese tea.
