Like most of you I am not sure what the calories are in many of the Chinese Foods I eat.

I did find the Calories for Ma La Tang- Spicy Soup. I added it to the food list, so that anybody can find it.

Does anybody know the calories for Di San Xian? This is my favorite dish. I will look it up on the websites that people listed below.

Any suggestions or comments about finding nutritional information for Chinese food would be helpful.

If you read Chinese, you can use http://www.boohee.com/assessment/calory to find caloric info of almost all Chinese dishes.

So, according to http://baike.baidu.com/view/9872.htm , a youtiao has 252 calories, 4.5 grms proteins, 19.2 grms fat, 15.9 grms sugar, .6 dietary fiber, 153 mg sodium.
I also found this page http://www.365zn.com/food/htm/133.htm with more detailed information, and this one is for every 100 grams of youtiao. You can use google translator or nciku.com if you don't read Chinese.

Good luck!

OMG I finally found a group that understands what I'm going through!!! I've been in China for 4 years, and man did it made me gain weight!
I h.a.t.e. that most foods don't have nutritional information... the only good thing about it is that I've been cooking more at home and that has made me eat healthier, and so far it's working.
I know I'm not being of much help, and that this is an old post, but still wanted to throw in my opinion.

加油!or should I say 加代替油? (how would you say substitute oil in Chinese??)

I have been trying use the food grouping technique which seems to give me a good estimate, but getting stuck on foods that are not on the list at all like things in sauces -ie: How many calories for sweet & sour sauce? How about wood ear, goji berries, red dates...Ok, as you can see I am frustrated. This is a big obstacle for me and makes me feel like giving up tracking. Although, on days when it has been easier to track, it has given me some good info. about what I am eating and how I could do better. Well, just had to vent a bit.

I use the "food grouping" technique to estimate the chao cai. It's pretty easy for things like eggs and tomatoes and gets harder for more complicated dishes. I guesstimate how my favorite restaurant makes it and estimate high on the oil.

I am wondering if anyone knows the calorie count for the following Chinese foods:

Egg & tomato (xi hong shi shao ji dan)
Chao mian
mian pian
bingzi (small round bread)

I do not find it hard to track regularely as long as I know what I am eating. But, I find it hard to know how much the calories are when we eat out in China. The calorie dense food is making it so difficult to lose any weight. Well, i can't blame it all on that. I am also finding it hard to be motivated to exercise, especially during the winter. At least that will be short from now on.
