Calories in Chinese Food

Most of our users have become to regard Weight Loss International as
not only the leading web site for weight loss information, but as
we're noticing, the place to research any new and interesting dieting
fact imaginable. So when we were ask by a number of our users, "What
are the number of calories in Chinese food?" it hardly came as a
surprise.

But it makes sense. We're all eating a widely eclectic diet full of
rich foods from a plethora of cultures, and yet, we all need to watch
our waistlines.

Revealing Facts about the Calories in Chinese Food
Your friends coming over to watch a DVD or party on a Saturday night?
You could order some pizza, fish n chips... or for a healthier
alternative, you could order some Chinese food. Or so people believe.

In actuality

an order of House Lo Mein has as much salt as a whole Pizza Hut cheese
pizza

an order of Kung Pao Chicken has a much fat as four Quarter pounders

an order of Moo Shu Pork has more than twice the cholesterol of a Egg
McMuffin

Fat in Chinese dishes range from a more respectable 19 grams in
Szechuan Shrimp or Stir-Fried vegetables up to an outrageous 76 grams
in Kung Pao Chicken.

The lowest sodium dinner (stir-fried vegetables) has over 2 100 mg of
sodium (salt) which is basically your recommended salt quota for the
day. The highest sodium dish is House Lo Mein topping the scales at
3 460 mg.

Redeeming Feature
On the plus side, the saturated fat levels of Chinese foods are
typically lower than many western dishes. The dish with the highest
level of saturated fat is Moo Shu Pork.

Three Step to Healthy Chinese
Having dispelled the myth that Chinese dishes are a healthy
alternative to other take-away dishes, let's explore our top tips for
enjoying a good night of eastern cuisine.

The biggest secret to making Chinese food healthier is called RICE.
Add in one cup of streamed rice for every entree, and the resulting
dish markedly moves up the healthier foods scale. To reach that
balance, you'll need two orders of rice for every entree

The second biggest secret? Steamed vegetables. Order a portion of
steamed vegetables and add it to your entree. The percentage of fat
in the overall meal is markedly reduced

Finally - leave the sauce behind. Eat your Chinese dish with a fork
or chopsticks, lifting the food up out of the sauce. Leave any extra
sauce, nuts, egg etc behind. Eat your rice from a separate rice dish
