80 Singapore Hawker Food And Their Calories

80 Singapore Hawker Food And Their Calories
by

With less than 100 days till the end of the year, and New Year resolutions of keeping fit and losing weight looming in the corner, people will be watching what they eat.

I have updated the previous list of Calories of 50 Singapore Hawker Food to the present 80.

Some observations
– While the Murtabak tops the list at 1102 kcal, I suspect most people generally share this dish with at least one or two other people. Therefore, the calories should be divided… which brings me to the next point…

– Fried Ee Mee with Seafood is shockingly high at 1010 kcal, the highest ‘ranked’ for zi char dishes. I suspect it is because ‘Ee Mee’ is prepared by frying till crisp brown. Other interesting (and ironic) note: Ee Mee is sometimes eaten as a form of longevity noodles.

– Most of the other zhi char dishes – Mui Fan (719 kcal), Beef Horfun (697 kcal) and Fried Hong Kong Noodles (693 kcal) are relatively higher in calories. Tip is to share those dishes, and stop trying to finish the gravies. #ReminderToSelf

– What is sometimes perceived as ‘healthy food’ – Ban Mian with Fish Head Soup has 833 kcal. The way to go lower is to ask for sliced instead of deep fried fish, and remove the evaporated milk.

– A plate of Ngoh Hiang with sweet sauce is already at 805 kcal. Perhaps we should refrain or get people to share that additional plate of Fried Bee Hoon (252 kcal).

– Bak Chor Mee (511 kcal) is marginally higher than ‘cousin’ Fishball Noodles Dry (482 kcal). The soup version (372 kcal) generally contains less calories.

– Go easy on the desserts. A bowl of Chendol with coconut and evaporated milk is at 593 kcal, similar to Lor Mee (595 kcal), Carrot Cake (585 kcal) and 2 Roti Pratas with Egg (576 kcal).

– Tau Hway Beancurd with added syrup is at 342 kcal. For comparison, one Chicken Curry Puff about 339 kcal. Are you having one for tea-break NOW?

– Some ‘snack-ish’ types of foods add up to the caloric content. For example, 3 pieces of Siew Mai (315 kcal) and Lor Mai Kai (324 kcal) have marginally higher calories than Macaroni Chicken Soup (277 kcal).

The average moderately active Singaporean male needs 2600 kcal a day, and female 2000.

To lose 1kg of weight, you would need to cut around 250 – 300 kcal each day for a month. This can be done with a combination of healthier eating and increased physical activity.

It’s not too difficult. We just need to make healthier choices, such as choose a lower-calorie meal, cutting down on sauces, ordering soup-based dishes and avoiding dishes with too much coconut cream or milk.

All the best for achieving those health and fitness goals!
