Calories in Chinese Takeaways

Chinese food has been an amazing addition to our food offering in the UK. Yet many Chinese takeaway dishes may have a negative impact on our calorie count.

Possibly the most popular type of takeaway in Britain, Chinese food has surged in popularity. Generally speaking, its not so great for trying to shed those extra pounds though. If you cant resist the temptation, at least try to avoid the deep fried dishes.

What To Avoid

This includes starters like prawn crackers and spring rolls. Just one serving of crispy duck contains over thirty grams of fat.

What To Choose

Instead try fish and steamed vegetables. Other dishes that are higher in vegetables and therefore lower in fat include beef in black bean sauce. Still a typical serving contains 432 calories where chicken and cashew nuts have 311 calories.

Stir fries aren't as bad as you might think as the amount of oil used is generally not high. Go for the plain rice rather than the egg fried which contains more fat.
