When the festive mood sinks in, it’s easy to indulge mindlessly, especially when you’re at a Christmas party with a widespread buffet before you. All that stuffed turkey, mince pies and log cake – who can resist? As the hours go by, it’s not just the rolling amount of calories you should be worried about, but fat and sodium content too. For instance, the ever popular honey baked ham packs a ton of sodium – one slice settles more than a quarter of your daily sodium intake!
Remember: an average Asian woman with a sedentary lifestyle should keep within her recommended daily intake of 1,800 calories, 50g of fat and 2,000mg of sodium. For a moderately active woman who works out regularly, it is recommended that you keep your daily intake to 2,000 calories, 55g of fat and 2,000mg of sodium.
