Johnny20270 Posted November 17, 2014 at 06:22 AM Report Share Posted November 17, 2014 at 06:22 AM Naturally it depends on what you eat, or if in a restaurant what you order etc but I am in two minds if I am eating healthier or worse than at home. But my post is to gauge where you are gereally eating better or worse than your own country. Some observations on my limited experience compared to the average UK diet - People fry far too much here. Note the absence of a oven in Chinese apartments - I find I that I am eating a lot more vegetables here and actually kind of like them! - Fruit: hit or miss, I think in general, UK is better noting cost. - Dairy products, not existent, only a bad thing in my view. - Eggs, noticeable difference, can't find 'true' free range eggs. - Sweets, I don't snack as much here on chocolate, biscuits etc A snack seems to be nuts, dried fruit. - Cakes / pastries, No where near as good as UK France etc Much more artificial here. French style patisserie are a long way from France - Wheat products, I miss good whole meal bread. Not good. Standard supermarket bread here is awful - Salt: hard to tell, on one hand soya sauce is abundant but in UK processed food is notoriously full of salt - Meat: No comparison in quality. UK better. - Fish: I eat a lot more here, good In a few weeks I have noticed my skin has improved so gotta be a good thing but energy levels dropped. Maybe due to lack of red meat. In the gym I have dropped in strength significantly. Other aspect is I never know what I eating as always in a sauce or coating with something. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
