CHINESE DIET: Here’s How To Lose 10 Pounds In 7 Days!

The traditional Chinese diet features vegetables that have been lightly steamed or stir fried, accompanied by starches like rice, noodles or dumplings. Meat and fish are part of the traditional diet, but are served in much smaller amounts than is typical in the Western diet.

In far too many countries, Chinese food has a not-so-healthy reputation. We mostly only know what we get from many take-out restaurants or shopping mall food courts, which tends to be mystery meats flavored with monosodium glutamate (the dreaded “MSG”) piled on a hefty amount of greasy noodles or refined white rice.

But properly prepared, says Chinese food expert Lorraine Clissold, the very opposite is true: the Chinese way of eating is healthy and fulfilling, fights illness and prolongs life.

PROS AND CONS OF THE CHINESE DIET

One of the longest standing truisms of dieting is that a calorie is a calorie and the more of them we consume (and the fewer we expend), the fatter we will get.

Traditional Chinese medicine, TCM, posits that everything is made up of five elements: wood, fire, earth, metal and water. Each element has a corresponding flavor: sour, bitter, sweet, hot and salty.  If you have diarrhea, sour foods like lemon or food pickled in vinegar can help. The sweet taste, exemplified in honey and many fruits, offers mood-elevating effects.
