The heroine 'Guardian of Health' saves unwitting diners from feasting on an unhealthy meal in a slick Chinese martial arts flick.

In the video, she battles the 'Sugar Arch Villain' and his cronies, highlights the high sugar content in some popular Chinese New Year dishes, and uses her skills to reduce the amount of oil, salt and sugar in them.
