overall calorie consumption? think of the twinkies diet, you'll lose weight eating anything if its under daily calories intake allowance..
im guessing here of course, just using common sense
also re korean food esp kimchi, hardly any calories at all, thats why theyre so thin, every korean eats kimchi every day you'd have to eat 10kg of kimchi a day to be at calorie intake http://www.caloriegallery.com/foods/calories-in-kimchi.htm
Plus while its made with sugar and spices, it has a lot of good ingrediants too, spices are good for increase in metabolism:
Typical batch of kimchi is made from:
5 cabbages, 2 radishes, 5 cloves of garlics, 5 cups of thick salt, 4 green onions, 1 bundle of dropwort. 3 ginger roots, 300g of mustard leaves, 1/2 cup of fish paste, 2 cups of red chili pepper, 1 cup of sticky rice paste, 2 cups of sugar, 2 cups of oysters
anyway thats enough about kimchi, this is High Fat low Carb thread, but surely it fits in the low carb category. Eat it with some samgyupsal (fat pork strips http://www.fatsecret.com/Diary.aspx?pa=fjrd&rid=759085) around a bbq, its great!
