Gong Xi Fa Cai!

 

It’s Lunar New Year, and what else better to do than to munch on those tasty festive goodies. Chances are, you ain’t stopping at one. But wait! Don’t bite off more than you can chew! These goodies are notorious for being high in calories. If you don’t work it off, it builds up, turning into the kind of love handles you probably don’t want to be flaunting for Valentines’ Day.

So how about burning those calories off in the Singaporean Son way? IPPT is a yearly affair for every NSmen (unless exempted), making sit-ups, push-ups, and running familiar forms of exercises. How many minutes of each would be required to burn off the calories from a single piece of the festive delicacies? Find out in this table today. We’ve even thrown in light squats for good measure if sit-ups and push-ups are too strenuous for you!

 

Disclaimer: Calories Burned are based on the average weight of a Singaporean male (~73kg)
