We're ordering Chinese food's a new years tradition. What do I do? (Oh and btw, happy new years everyone!!) Today I've had about 300 calories so far, so does that mean I can eat like 700 calories of Chinese food? Is Chinese food high in calories, does anyone know the exact amount? I would guess it is since it's all greasy and fried.

just "by the way", 100cl isnt enough. You need to be consuming a min. of 1200. And anything in moderation is ok. Just dont go crazy. Its a once a year thing, right? so enjoy it!

chinese people are skinny because they walk a lot,because the streets are really crowded to fit cars through. chinese food isnt that bad its actually really well balanced, rice is carbs, vegtables, and chicked or beef as protein. americans fry food in oil that is why its semi-unhealthy for you. but splurging one day isnt bad for you especially on new years.

chinise food is not that bad for you if you only eat a good portion of it. Take a little on ur plate. After ur done, leave the table and get away from the food so you won't be hungry. When my mom was on a diet when she was our age, she took a little bit of food then went to bed, even if she was hungry. Sometimes she went to bed starving. By that she lost 80 lbs, but she didn't workout. If you do that and workout, you will be sure to lose a lot of weight!!! Good luck! *jenn*

The Chinese food we eat is all Americanized, real Chinese food isn't as greasy and stuff. Hence skinny Chinese people.
