While eating fat alone would not make you fat, excess calories will. And there are plenty of opportunities to fill up on all these extra calories. From the gerai in the morning where you get your fill of mee goreng, the hawker stalls at lunch selling fragrant chicken rice and char kway teow, to the afternoon minum kopi sessions of kuih-muih, you’re probably not very surprised when you find out Malaysians rank the most obese in South East Asia.

The mamak stall is another avenue to needlessly increase our calorie intake. While de-stressing after the long day with your friends and watching football late in the evening, it’s easy to mindlessly munch on and drink up hundreds, and even thousands of calories beyond your recommended daily intake. This doesn’t mean you should stop going to the mamak stall (no way!), it just means you should make conscious decisions and better choices.
