Diet Tracker (Calorie Counter)

Postby mathsparks » Mon Nov 30, 2009 11:50 pm

Hi kiasuparents with ever growing waistlines,

Check out health promotion board's diet tracker which can be downloaded to your mobile phone. So you know how many calories that fish head curry, laksa, durian, dumpling etc has.

I'm not advocating counting calories, but this is an excellent guide (in terms of fat, salt, calorie content) to our local food; so you know when to indulge, what's healthy blah blah blah.

You can download to your mobile phone here: http://www.hpb.gov.sg/diettracker/

If you find it laychey (aka 麻烦), have a look here:
http://www.hpb.gov.sg/hpb/default.asp?pg_id=993

So, if I have my fav briyani (excellent :drool: in joo chiat complex) on weekends, I've to climb Bt Timah hill or eat fruits for the rest of the day; as for hubby, his fav bak chor mee is the reason for his increasing waistline.


Nasi briyani with mutton Mee pok, minced pork and black mushroom, dry
Energy (kcal) 752 511
Protein (g) 36 20
Total fat (g) 25 23
Saturated fat (g) 12.1 9.2
Dietary fibre (g) 8.1 4.9
Carbohydrate (g) 96 57
Cholesterol (mg) 96 29
Sodium (mg) 1,858 1,491

briyani, lagi shiok! bring him to the one at jc complex when he needs to indulge.

I've sworn off indian rojak, not coz of that infamous incident (:sick:) but becoz they ALWAYS charge ridiculous prices.

Indian mee goreng+prata kosong+mutton soup at Jln Kayu, fantabulous :drool: :drool: again.

Hmmm :idea: maybe soon...

Ahh, try the rojak at Ayer Rajah Hawker centre, West Coast road. Price is resonable and gravy super shiok with mee goreng. Zack is a great fan, me work nearby, so you know.... but I limit myself to once a month. heres the link to the discussion about the rojak store there: http://www.kiasuparents.com/kiasu/forum ... 9&start=30

Where is jc complex? Jln Kayu is fab, but too far away for us. We go for prata treats at Clementi road Cheese prata store. Alamak, deviate to foodies paradise talk :heresmyfish:

Me don't use the points, so will award when receiving great tips lor.
And u are welcome :celebrate:

Joo Chiat complex. There's a renovated kopitiam at ground floor. Indian briyani, super shiok. rice is not the dried-out type, very fragrant, mutton tender. But strangely after eacting I tend to have a good long nap in the afternoon. Could be one of the spices they used.

Never been to Ayer R Hawker Ctr. Out of way; but maybe will try since price not reasonable and they dont anyhow charge hor?

Yep. We shoudl stop here. From health become food. *toing toing* myself

After all the yearend feasting, and before the CNY comes around, I shall revive this topic for parents out there looking to shed some kilos...

But, counting calories is just one way..you've to include exercise as well.

Sorry I'm a bit blur. Kcal is different from calories, right? I remember roughly we should eat about 2000 calories per day. What about kcals? Tks!

i'm also blur about kcal. Though i suspect the rough guide of 2000 cal is actually referring to 2000 kcal.

But how can my subsistence mee-pok be 511 cals, wail!! :cry: Briyani, I understand. But mee-pok???

I googled it, and although I didn't do a very thorough search, you could be right.

This is a sad day. Ok I know. Ignorance is bliss! :idea:
