Oktoberfest: Track your calories

style="float: right; margin-bottom: 10px; font-weight: 600;"Sun 16th Sep, 2012

Soon it will be time for the Oktoberfest, and many people will go to the Wies'n to eat, drink and party. Just how healthy is the food served at the Oktoberfest?

In this article we give you a breakdown of the calories contained in the 'Wies'n foods', from the reason for the season (maß Bier) to Lebkuchen Herz (Gingerbread heart), which is not really meant to be eaten but to be worn around the neck. You might want to go to the gym this winter to burn off these calories...or you may choose to retain them, just in case this winter turns out to be half as harsh as last year's. Whichever you choose, we at The Munich Eye Health wish you a pleasant Oktoberfest season.
