It is no secret that the Chinese New Year goodies are basically tons of fats in disguise and with the festive mood in the air, our stringent diets become more lax and our exercise routine… well, what exercise?

An indulgent diet and a lack of exercise is essentially the perfect recipe for weight gain. While losing that additional weight that we have gained over the festive seasons require truckloads of hard work and serious dedication, we first need to know just how much calories there are in the goodies to determine how hard we need to pay back in the gym.

And on that note, let’s begin tapping on our calorie-calculator…


Bak kwa

The combination of savory and sweet makes Bak Kwa one of the most sought after snacks during the festive season. Being one of the most calorically dense Chinese New Year snacks, this square of goodness packs in179 calories in a single slice and while it take an average of 2 minutes to consume this heavenly slice, it requires an average of 33 minutes of torturous labour at the gym to burn them off.

Srping rolls with chicken floss

They may look tiny and harmless, but these insidious spring rolls with chicken floss can do some serious damage to your waistline. With just 5 of these mini spring rolls pack 110 calories and judging by how addictive these crunchies are…  who are we kidding if we said we stopped at 5. In order to burn off the calories consumed in just 5 tiny spring rolls, an average of 21 minutes of hard work to say goodbye to these calories.

nian gao

This ooey gooey piece of decadence is a must have during the annual Chinese New Year festivity. But just a tiny square of fried nian gao contains a substantial 380 calories, more than a bowl of white rice. So if you are like us, who simply can’t say no to the subtle sweetness and melty texture of fried nian gao, say hello to an average of 69 mins at the work out station just to burn off the tiny square of awesomeness.

Did you also know that just 3 pieces of Kuih Bahulu contain 120 calories and takes an average of 23 grueling minutes to burn off? And those 3 melting pieces of heaven of Kuih Bangkit contain 70 calories and takes an average of 14 minutes to eliminate them while 3 rolls of love letters is enough to pack in 170 calories. That takes an average of 32 demanding minutes at the gym to work off the calories!
