Have you ever wondered, “why are Asians slim if they eat rice?” If rice is so bad, and the Asian diet or Chinese diet typically has a lot of rice in it, why are the Chinese skinny?

Well, the Chinese may not actually be as healthy or as skinny as you think.

From 1985 to 2015, there was actually a massive spike of obesity in children. I’m not even talking about overweight kids. I’m talking about actual obesity in China.

Yes, the Chinese once were considered one of the leanest populations in the world. Now, if you look at obesity in China vs. America, there is a lot less of a difference. China is ranked #2 behind the United States for obesity. Yes, the Chinese have always consumed rice. But, the Asian diet has also changed a lot over time.

How the Chinese diet has changed:

• They consume a lot more sugar
• They don’t consume as many vegetables
• They used to consume more fish and seafood
• There are more fried foods now instead of primarily boiled foods
• They don’t consume as many fermented foods
• Western food and beverage companies have helped shape the science and public policy on obesity in China.
• There is a lot more snacking going on
• There is a lot more GMO soy being consumed

The Chinese are not getting thinner. They are actually getting fatter. The obesity situation is not because of rice.

It’s because of:
• Sugar
• Refined carbs
• Soy products
