How to Maintain Weight and Lose Weight After CNY Feasting

January 14, 2020



The Chinese New Year (CNY) celebration is a time of feasting and abundance.


However, if we are not careful, it is easy to put on weight from the multitude of tasty snacks and food available during home visitations.


Follow the two steps before so that you maintain your weight during CNY, and get back in shape quickly after all the feasting.


  1. Maintain your weight during CNY
  2. Reduce inches around your weight after CNY


First Step: Reduce calories and maintain your weight during CNY


If we are mindful of what we eat, it is not a difficult task to maintain your weight during Chinese New Year while still enjoying the festivities.


Reduce Calories with Simple Swaps:
  • A can of beer or soft drink contains about 200 calories! Drink water or Chinese tea instead of packaged drinks or alcohol. It is easy to take in hundreds of calories while sipping on sweetened beverages


  • Have mandarin oranges or dried fruit instead of cookies and cakes. Apart from the lower calorie count, mandarin oranges are a good source of vitamin C and potassium.


  • For crunchy, savoury snacks, reach for nuts instead of chips or crackers. Nuts contain protein and healthy fat – which help you to feel fuller.



Other tips and tricks:
  • Have a portion of healthy snacks such as fruit or wholegrain crackers before leaving your house, so that you aren’t starving – and more likely to overeat – at your relatives’ home.


  • Limit yourself to 1-2 pieces of Bak kwa, pineapple tarts, and kueh lapis. Each piece are laden with sugar and fats.


  • Eat slowly! Savour each mouthful of food before taking the next. Slowing down gives your body enough time to detect when you are full.


  • Continue exercising throughout the festive season. You can also burn off more calories by standing and walking around, instead of sitting down all day during home visits.




Second Step: Reduce Waist Size After CNY

Gaining extra pounds after CNY can be unavoidable because who can resists those CNY goodies?


Thankfully, there are slimming treatments that help us get rid of those unwanted fats around the belly and love handles after CNY.


Many people book their slimming appointments before CNY too – so that they feel less guilty while indulging in food during CNY period.
