Christmas and New Year is just round the corner, and most of us will be celebrating the festivities with parties and lot of good food and goodies along the way.
With the objective of ‘Eat Wisely and Be Active’ in mind, Khoo Teck Puat Hospital has published some tips to stay healthy when we enjoy the Christmas and New Year parties.
For example, a slice of Fruit Cake contains 215 kcal#. To burn away these calories, you will need to climb 135 Floors*!
What does it mean to you?
Assuming 1 floor equal to 16 steps or 2 flights of stairs in a HDB block. Meaning to burn 215 kcal, you will need to climb 135 x 16 steps!
And for a small piece of butter cookie, you will need to climb 20 floors.
Therefore, eat wisely!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
