Went to a Korean BBQ now I know why Asians are so skinny
So I went to a Korean BBQ place and the sides were just veggies and the meat was obviously done on the BBQ/Grille.
I'm no culinary expert but what was very evident was:
A. Lack of breads
B. Lack of buns
C. Lack of cheese
D. Lack of desserts
Literally all they eat is grilled meats and raw vegetables like Kim Chi.
It's a zero-carb and zero-sugar diet.
Compare that to the natural intake of your typical American:
A. Daydrive-thru with a latte (300 cals)
B. Fries and sammich (600 single patty 1000 double patty with cheese)
C. Sugary beverage again for lunch (Sprite undieted 140 cals)
D. Pizza for snack and fries at 6 PM (1500 cals)
E. Pasta for dinner (1000 cals) with lots of cheese
Now this is a generalization but it's evident that it's very hard to come across a fat Japanese, Korean, et cetera.
One wonders if they deliberately chose this lifestyle or it just worked out naturally.
