Okay, so I’m not going to lie, I definitely put on some holiday pounds this past month but I could never imagine resorting to eating roundworm eggs to lose the flab. Once digested, the eggs hatch in a person’s stomach. Apparently this is the new weight-loss scheme for female students in China who have felt a need to look thinner in order effectively compete in the grim job market.
Other strategies to get skinny Chinese girls have tried include staring at photos of themselves for hours, as a way to suppress their appetite. Another way is showering up to 10 times a day with a “special” soap that supposedly helps you lose weight. Desperate times surely do call for desperate measures.
Even the most petite Asian girls are critical of their body image. Are you wondering if you’re skinny enough for Asia?
