I think a lot of thai girls are getting fat from sugar drinks from Amazon/ Starbucks


Recommended Posts

I've noticed over several yrs many photos of my wifes friends on fbook all holding milky green tea drinks from Amazon cafe / starbucks. In fact there are many varieties of these cold drinks all loaded with sugar. And of course they are all getting so fat. 

 

I used to work at a thai govt uni and checked their photos as well. Same thing. All holding these drinks. 

 

My wife has to have one per day and her legs are getting chubby. 

 

Its not good for us lads. 

 

cheers

You guys forget one important point it's not only what they drink or they eat it's the lifestyle.   I mean most of them are lazy and seat on their fat a55 most of the time.  

I think a lot of young girls are getting fat before having babies more so now than ones getting fat after having babies in the last ten years or more it seems to me from what I observe where I live.

So is it that  you have a leg  or bum  fetish?

I am not  denying  what you  suggest as visual evidential  fact  or theoretical cause.

But even at  Govt. level the  average  consumption of  cane  sugar in Thailand  is  incredible without the added popularity  of  "healthy"  tea drinks as a  bonus has  been recognized as a  problem solvable  by  increased tax on such offerings!

Incidental to your opinion is that I  daily observe  that  the customers  who purchase  such beverages are  approximately 50/50 by  gender from a  vendor who leases a site  on my wife,s property.

I admit that I do  concentrate  more on the  physique of  the two  fit young  female  vendors than the customers in general  but can  not  ignore  some  obese tendencies in comparison.

It helps  conistently fill my bored time each day😅.

Sugar even goes into a traditional dish such as pad thai goong. It's used to blunt the chilli. I ask the cooks to leave it out.

I'd agree there does seem to be an increase in porkers over the last ten years.

My wife has a small zojirushi thermocan, we make real coffee in the percolator, it goes into our thermocans and that's we drink...just coffee, milk and sugar.

 

That icecoffee from Amazon is very fat, they use sweet condensed milk.

It is not the fat content,it is the sugar.

For decades the governments have been able to fool the people by saying fat makes you fat,no it doesn't

it is the sugar!!!!

In all seriousness I do believe  that it is  the expansion and proliferation of the franchised  operations  listed  above that  has a had a dramatic  effect.

My wife was  quick  to  comment on the  incremental obvious "size "of  people initially  in  Bangkok but  which as  spread even to the northern districts as has the proliferation  of  the 7/11's, Macs, KFc, Pizza this and thats, etc.

More  than  just increased disposable income for "street food" which is an historical Asian feature I am convinced there is something  insidious  in the content  of  the  modern  convenience  foodstuffs from these  franchised  outlets that have  achieved a proliferate profile that approaches an almost  obscene  presence  in  numbers that  has  stretched out  into  even  relatively  small  rural  towns.

I am of the  believe that it  is  the  combination that is the problem. Avoid  one or  the other avoids excess  weight  gain. Fats  and oils  are  the  same  in  end  effect  anyway . So  oily  or  fatty in Thailand   must  also  be   extra sweet  !

Eventually, a whistleblower from the food industry is going to go public with the results of a myriad of industry studies that prove some of the minor additives are designed specifically to addict people to the product, and jigger with their metabolisms so they need to eat/drink more to get the feeling of fullness.


I think it's the sugar that makes 'em gain weight.  But it's going to be something from the likes of Bayer/Monsanto with a name like potassium polyunsorbate that makes them consume so much more of it. 

 

It's not as if excess sugar has ever been lacking in Thai food, since long before Big Ag got involved.
