This is a ‘calories-for-thought’ for those who love 3-in-1 (coffee/milk with sugar and creamer) pre-packet tea/coffee. On average, one packet of this is equivalent to almost half hour of leisurely walk in the park.
So you may want to rethink if you are taking more than a packet a day:
|No.||Product||Type||Cal per packet||Sugar content per packet||Fat content per packet|
|1||Nescafe Breakfast||3 in 1||119kcal||21.1g (carbs)||2.4g|
|2||Old Town Milk Tea||3 in 1||191kcal||30g (carbs)||6.0g|
|3||Lipton Milk Tea (Hong Kong style)||Not available||Not available|
|4||Super White Coffee||3 in 1||175kcal||21g||5.2g|
|5||Chek Up White Coffee||Coffee + Creamer only||150 kcal (630k)||–||7.8g|
|6||Nan Yang White Coffee O||Coffee + Sugar only||120.8 kcal||16.8g||0.6g|
|7||Farmosa White Coffee||3 in 1||175 kcal||5g||20g|
|8||Café 21||Coffee + Creamer (no sugar)||60 kcal||5g (carbs)||2g|
|9||Nescafe Regular||3 in 1||89 kcal||16.4g (carbs)||2.3g|
|10||Nescafe Rich||3 in 1||96 kcal||18.0g (carbs)||2.3g|
|11||Aik Cheong kopi o||Coffee + sugar only||39 kJ||7.63g (carbs)||0.54g|
Note: Over 95% (and sometimes 100%) of the fat content is saturated fat (lemak tepu) as stated on most the packets.
You’ll need to work very hard to burn off those calories that you’ve drank in your workout. Here are some past articles that may be useful alternatives:
a. Cut down your 3-in-1 from 2 or 3 packets to only 1 packet a day (for me, I’ve split one packet into half in the morning, and the other half at about 3 or 4pm in the afternoon)
b. Go for walks after a meal or climb the stairs
c. Don’t take too much of carbohydrates during breakfast/lunch. Always mix with fruits/vegetables (knowing about Glyceamix Index helps)
d. Exercise in the morning before going to work.
