  1. I have not noticed feeling hungry again after a (not home cooked) Chinese meal. I do notice I feel very thirsty afterward. And this is to do with the MSG they add to the food. Chinese takeaways are the worst culprits for saturating the food with MSG.

    • I always make sure to drink copious amounts of tea or water when I eat.

      However, I have noticed that when I eat Americanized Chinese food that I am often hungry an hour after I eat, versus when I eat authentic Chinese food, I am sated for hour’s after the meal has ended.

    • By the way, I love your article on cooking oils!
