Do chopsticks make you thin?

Posted on January 16, 2009. Filed under: American culture, cuisine |

I just read about the chopstick diet and at first thought it was a joke. The basic idea is that if you eat with chopsticks, you will lose weight. Forks, apparently, are to blame for our eating so much. They make it much too easy to get your food to your mouth, unlike chopsticks, where 60% of your food falls back on your plate after you’ve picked it up.

This is a new hot trend for Americans, who will do almost anything to lose weight except exercise and eat sensibly. Somehow, I don’t think a McDonald’s quarter pounder with cheese and a large fries and going to be any more slimming if they are eaten with chopsticks.
