Publisher Comments:

An ancient cuisine reveals secrets that will change the way you eat, feel, and look.

Before Lorraine Clissold traveled to China, she had battled with diets for years and was obsessed with food. She was addicted to sweets, alcohol, and fried food, and she felt tired and rundown all the time. Her only experience with Chinese food was what she had eaten in malls as a child. Imagine her delight, then, when she discovered China's wonderful food culture. "I was fascinated," she writes, "to come upon a nation that positively stuffed itself at every meal and looked great." Clissold's journey through authentic Chinese cuisine began at her first meal in Beijing, which she left feeling full, satisfied, and healthy. By changing her diet to one based on Chinese principles, she changed her life.

Here, Clissold reveals the secrets of this little-known yet age-old cuisine, as well as the larger lessons she has learned about China's rich and varied culture. Readers will learn to regard vegetables as delicacies, forget about counting calories, eat a wide variety of foods, and "eat for the body, not for the mouth." Why the Chinese Don't Count Calories will delight American readers with the secrets of better eating, better health, and looking great from a culture that does it so well.

Synopsis:

An ancient cuisine reveals secrets that will change the way you eat, feel, and look. Lorraine Clissold always loved food, but like many Western women her enjoyment was tinged with guilt. She lived in constant fear of piling on the pounds. Then she discovered a nation of people who positively stuffed themselves and never worried about counting calories or getting fat. During Clissold's ten year journey into the 3,000 year old Chinese food culture, she discovers the 15 secrets that make it possible to enjoy delicious meals three times a day, and keep slim and feel fitter. Why the Chinese Don't Count Caloriesbrings a commonsense approach to eating—one which has worked for billions of people over thousands of years—into American kitchens for the first time.
