"Eat for the Body, not for the Mouth"...Why Chinese Women Don't Get Fat?
Honestly when I first noticed Why the Chinese don't count calories a new book by Lorraine Clissold (actually her first), I could not help but think of it as a Chinese riff on Why French women don't get fat.
Sophie Morris (The Independent) offers her take on the ideas explored in the book and has 2 nutritionists, Patrick Holford and Ian Marber 'The Food Doctor' fact check the claims it makes.
Her title Use your noodle: The real Chinese diet is so healthy it could solve the West's obesity crisis would have made for a more catchy title.
One part where it seems there is broad agreement is that it should all start with soup...
