Eat Well During the Festive Season
The heavy focus on eating during the Lunar New Year would cause some people some kind of weight and health issues. But completely ruling out natural fatty food doesn't necessarily help us lose weight. It's not entirely what we eat but how we cook it and how we eat it that makes the difference. The key is to have a good balance, say, teaming Dongpo Braised Pork Belly with Chinese Tea Boiled Rice; the substance in Chinese tea will neutralise the fat in the pork belly.
