Several people who recently watched Crazy Rich Asians asked me if it’s true that women in Asia are all that skinny.
Honestly, when you are walking on the streets in large cities like Shanghai and Beijing or in the countryside, you just don’t see overweight people that easily, and here are a few facts to make it more intriguing:
- They eat rich meals all the time: 3-5 dishes for a meal.
- They eat carbs every day: moderately speaking, 150-200g of carbs for women (with the majority being the refined carbs).
- They never count calories or macros: most don’t even know what they are.
- Only 2% of the population go to the gym frequently: with almost half doing yoga or learning belly dancing.
The Asians have done EVERYTHING that dietitians would warn you against. Yet they are SKINNY, beautiful, with tons of vitality and glowing skin!
