Chinese New Year is here once again, and amidst all the shopping and spring cleaning to be done, there’s also the feasting aspects to be done. However, do you know how much calories you are consuming exactly and what it amounts to exactly?

Take a simple piece of pineapple tart. At 82kcal per piece, that means you would have to walk up 100 flights of stairs or 50 floors just to shed it! So while these goodies are as tempting as they seem, do keep in mind to have them in moderation as they are high in calories! That means shedding off those extra pounds post New Year would definitely not be an easy job!
