Did you know that consuming a slice of Bak Kwa requires you to jog for at least 45 minutes in order to burn off its calories? The amount of calories in 1 slice of Bak Kwa is almost similar to a cheeseburger or other small meal. Being high in sugar and fat the consumption of Bak Kwa may potentially increase risks of heart and blood vessel diseases, diabetes and obesity. Besides, it also contributes to increased risks of bowel cancers if taken in high volume on a regular basis.
So, moderation is the key. Having a balanced diet is highly recommended. Enjoy healthy eating in this festival season. Happy blessed Chinese New Year! Stay well.
