10 WORST Things to Order From A Chinese Restaurant: UNHEALTHIEST Chinese Foods

hey guys thanks for watching the Qin

Dynasty it's my champ you know there's a

stereotype that Asians are pretty

healthy individuals probably because a

lot of us are really thin but I do think

this statement is largely true as

countries in Asia especially those in

East and Southeast Asia

continue to rank as places with the

lowest obesity rates in the world and

just speaking for Chinese people

honestly when we do take a lot of walks

but now many of us really go to the gym

so I guess it's really about the food

I mean Asians do tend to eat a lot of

soy babies and not so much when it comes

to dairy products and we seem to have a

superpower when it comes to not being

affected by rice because we need that

stuff pretty much everything all that

but if you're one of those people who

think that everything you're gonna find

in a Chinese restaurant is gonna be good

for you then I'm here to tell you that

is just not true and although there are

healthy options in every restaurant I

mean even McDonald's most of what people

order from Chinese restaurants and I'm

just talking about Chinese restaurants

in the US are probably some of the

unhealthiest foods you can ever eat also

I do want to say that a lot of the foods

soda and Chinese restaurants in the u.s.

wore Americanized Chinese restaurants I

wouldn't even really call it Chinese

food or at least traditional Chinese

food so with that said let's just talk

about it let's talk about some of the

worst foods you can ever order in a

Chinese restaurant

number one General Tso's chicken and

this is probably the most popular non

Chinese Chinese dish ever and I do have

to admit it is a guilty pleasure of mine

I mean he fried crispy piping hot

chicken with sweet spicy sauce I mean

what's not to love but that's also

what's so unhealthy about this dish it's

deep fried chicken smothered with super

sweet sauce also there's usually no

veggies in that dish and it typically

comes with fries so it's so it's

basically kind of like eating Kentucky

Fried Chicken with barbecue sauce served

with a huge order of rice I think if I

had to compare that would be my Western

equivalent in an average order of

General Tso's chicken we'll have around

1,500 calories and a whopping 60 grams

of sugar also some of you may not know

this but typically Chinese restaurants

will fry this dish on what is called

dark oil which is oil that is very

seldomly changing the restaurants I

remember having to sneak this stuff like

a contraband from my parents buffet and

if I was ever caught by my parents let's

just say the 60 grams of sugar won't be

the only thing hitting my butt

number two roaming any lo mein hey you

know what I love these things as much as

anyone but next time you order these

delicious but also bad for you noodles

just take a closer look at them I mean

they shine like Beyonce at a concert

accept what's giving these things it's

glow is just a ton of oil and although

they may look really pretty they are

packed with more sodium than you need in

a single day and are mostly just refined

carbs that do nothing but spike your

blood sugar level a typical order of

these things will cost you around

fourteen hundred calories

number three it grows you know some

people take a look at these massive

edible paper weights and tell themselves

that you know what it's okay they're

filled with veggies it can't be all that

bad well they are and honestly in my

opinion it just tastes so awful I mean

it's almost all fried dough with just a

little bit of shredded cabbage inside it

maybe a little bit of minced pork also

just one egg roll will set you back

around at 200 calories and yeah that's

without that sweet and sour dipping

sauce number for fried rice I love rice

you know I just absolutely love rice

because one is delicious and secondly I

love eating thousands of something and

fried rice is another guilty pleasure of

mine especially when you cook it with

some eggs and roast pork drizzle with

some hot oil it's just a perfect

breakfast for me unfortunately flavor

comes with a price and here the price is

calories about 1,500 worth per serving

and because fried rice is usually just

stir-fried white rice which don't really

have much nutritional value and usually

won't come with any veggies number five

crab rangoon okay I have no idea what

when this became a Chinese dish because

traditional Chinese foods don't usually

contain cheese but this has become a

super popular item at Chinese

restaurants and yes it is as bad for you

as it seems although I do love this

thing it is another item I try to sneak

from our buffet I know this dish is bad

for me because is basically just fried

dough stuffed with cream cheese and crap

it's not even real crab it's just

imitation crap in just one order of

these ninja star looking things may not

set you back much in your wallet but

will set you back around a 400 calories

and at 28 grams of fat next up something

I really love in my body hates Chinese


these are sort of like your traditional

barbecue ribs except that there are not

fall-off-the-bone tender in fact they

are downright tough sometimes but it's

also good with

smoky flavor and sweet sauce but just a

tiny three ounce serving can net 300

calories and 26 grams of fats and I can

never stop at just one number seven Pam

fried dumplings

I love dumplings I have a channel named

after dumplings and if I ever get a dog

his name is gonna be dumpling put up

what I don't love is what dumplings do

to my body and if you were ever on the

frozen dumpling diet like I was you know

what I mean this is especially true with

dumplings you find out in Chinese

buffets and takeout restaurants because

they have the super thick doughy skin

and they'll usually come out to around a

hundred calories per dumpling I actually

really wish I didn't find out about this

because my typical order of dumplings is

around 25 to 30 also I ate 36 and 10

minutes once not my proudest moment but

yeah it really was

next yo tell this is a dish that is

extremely popular in China it just makes

me really wondering how we do actually

manage the state thin because this is

basically dull that is stretched out and

fried and when the dough absorbs all

that fatty oil is soaks it in and blows

up and then we basically just eat that

I mean it's so good but each one has

about 500 calories and usually that's

not the only thing we eat we usually dip

that in something else like soy milk or

tofu soup and everybody in China eats

this like little kids like every single

morning every single day that we are

alive we just eat this how how do we I

don't know

next up one of my favorite dishes in the

world Mapo tofu if you don't know Mapo

tofu is a citron dish it's basically

diced up tofu soaked in fermented bean

sauce covered in chili oil with mists

pork just one of the best dishes you can

ever have and unfortunately there's

really no healthy way to cook this dish

I mean the tofu part is healthy but

because it has so much meat so much

fermented bean sauce which is really

really salty this dish comes out to be

around a 400 calories per cup and don't

forget you cannot eat this dish without

rice and usually a lot of rice because

it's a saucy dish and even though I just

said all this I'm just gonna block out

in my mind I don't care I'm gonna

continue to eat it and finally something

I've been eating ever since well ever

since I can remember the Chinese steamed

abundant this thing it may look so

beautiful so smooth so full of fees so

pillowy he's gonna lay your head on it

but this innocent beautiful bun is not

so innocent traditionally made from just

regular white

flower it's basically nothing but we

find carbs and it's something we eat oh

so much in China I mean we eat it with

stir-fried dishes we eat it was soup we

did what kanji I used to just smother it

with hot oil and eat it like a hot oil

sandwich also at least in northern China

the steamed buns they're never small

okay they're usually the size of my head

so yeah like I said I really don't know

how Chinese people manage to stay slim I

mean it seems like every single day all

we eat is is rice and noodles and buns

and fried dough we even have a dish

where we put the fried dough inside

noodles and we eat that dipped in soy

sauce I don't know I just call it the

Asian genes I have no idea how this

works but yeah those are some of the

unhealthiest Chinese dish you can ever

eat from a Chinese restaurant so there

you go guys if you're trying to lose

weight maybe I'll void some of these

dishes or it could just be like me and

just not care but either way hopefully

much for watching I'll see you later
