How many Chinese do you find are over-weight or obese???
I am always disgusted with the many TV chefs that claimed eating Chinese food in restaurants or having a Chinese take-away, to be unhealthy. Anything deep fried, cooked in heavy sauces, or have high sugar content; are going to have high calorific values. This would be unhealthy if eaten every day or in volume, whether in an Asian catering establishment, or in any and every catering establishment.
Another dreaded ingredients in Asian cooking is the misuse of MSG ( mono-sodium glutenmate ). In itself, MSG, is not unhealthy. Most manufactured dishes contain some form of MSG, also known as taste enhancers. Look at your pack of manufactured crisps or snacks. Take a look at the labels of your favourite ready meals.
