Weight Loss Diet Secret Tips // Mooncake Mid-Autumn Festival
A normal mooncake is equivalent to 2-3 bowls of white rice!!!
This sounds so bad! I suppose you consume 1-2 bowls of white rice per meal. But I don't think that you'll only eat a quarter of it. Most people would end up eating 2-3 whole pieces of mooncakes just at one night. Mooncakes are worse than white rice as by producing a mooncake, you need lots of sugar, oil, and other bad ingredients like salted eggs (it's pretty yummy though!).
Way to prevent gaining weight during Mooncake Festival:
1) Control of your daily calories intake
When it comes to this festival, it'll always stay close to the BBQ thingy! Do not eat BBQ anymore if you intend to eat lots of mooncake! You may opt for salad. Do not drizzle the mayonnaise on top of your good friend - salad as mayonnaise contains a high level of oil and sugar as well. If you find that it's too bland, you may squeeze some lemon juices on top which may help in detoxing and perhaps lessen your inner stress or worry of eating too much haha!
2) Eat more of fruits and vegetables
This is somehow linked to the above one. But do remember not to eat excessively. One fist of amount per meal is acceptable. If you stumble upon the scenario of not getting your craving for mooncake fixed but in the meantime you wanna lose weight, you may use this approach to stay full.
3) Cleverly choose your beverages
Normally, Malaysian would go for the packaged or canned soft drinks or that kind of unhealthy box of juices which always narrates the healthy sense. Do not drink that! You may drink the gift from the GOD, water which is 0 in calories, tea or coffee. For those who struggle with insomnia, please do not take coffee at night. This will definitely affect your sleep and bear in mind that you'll get fat if you are not getting a good and sufficient sleep daily. As for green tea, in Chinese way of perception, green thing is always cold for our Asian especially Chinese. Hence, I suggest you opt for Oo Long tea rather than Green Tea.
4) Cleverly choose your mooncakes
From internet, I found out that doctors suggest that 1/4 of the mooncake is the best portion for everyone each day. They also claim that by having five kernel mooncake is better in spite of high calories as it contains nuts which are extremely beneficial.
5) Do not believe the low-fat / diet / low-sugar mooncakes mushrooming on market
Actually, they are all the same. Maybe it'll have lesser calories, but it also contains sugar and oil! Isn't it? People would always be out of control when the words related to low-fat or diet pop out and they'll eventually be tempted to eat lot more than usual.
6) NO snacks!
Please don't eat any more snacks like peanuts with shells, junk food and the must-have water caltrop or better-known as ling jiao. All of the items mentioned above are all categorized under 'carbohydrate'!
7) Exercise and work-out
Shake it off girls!!! There's no easy way to get figure like Kendall Jenner or Gigi Hadid! MOVE now!!!
