It seems that no matter where you go Asian girls are tiny and doll like and being a girl you usually hate it and try to justify it with sayings like their food is healthier or it's just genetics. While that may be true, there's more to it than that, at least from what I gathered. I think Paris Baguette would take Tim Hortons out of the running for numbers of locations per square meter. So with all this rice, huge portions and amazing bakeries on every corner these Korean girls do what every other girl does...diet. This was told to me by my 8 year old student who when asked how her weekend was replied terrible. Turns out she spent the weekend dieting because her father tells her she is fat all the time. And there I thought my parents were bad.
Another reason is all the walking, with so many people and such a wicked subway and bus system Koreans get around everywhere on foot. Not to mention all the public outdoor gym machines available to everyone and the running tracks where you can catch Korean couples taking nightly walks...alot of them in heels.
Heels, that's right! After spending several hours in heels it becomes obvious why these girls have no fat on their legs or elsewhere. If there was ever an enduring leg workout, heels would be considered that. And Koreans beat Europe in their girl to heel ratio with almost every woman here wearing heels all day, every day. Someone enlighten me on how Asia and Europe can do this? Because it really does look super cute.
There ya have it, some very common sense enlightment on why Asian girls are so tiny and how it's not just genes, food and secret diets.
