SINGAPORE (SHAPE) - Chinese New Year usually heralds a time of feasting for most of us.

Pineapple tarts. Bak kwa. Love letters. Kueh lapis.

The list of goodies is never-ending, but you don't want the same to be said of your weight gain.

Make a more informed decision this Chinese New Year by moderating your intake of snacks and keeping up with your exercise regime.

No time to hit the gym? Well, you can always walk off the calories - but be prepared that you'll be walking for a long, long time.
