Hope you really do continue to enjoy your time in Chengdu. My wife and I have lived there before and enjoyed it, and the food. The language will come for you as you diligently work at it and use it. Hope you have fun.

I can't exactly say "Welcome to China" because I just left, but what an exciting opportunity for you! I hope things go well. The walking required for life there is a definite help! And, have fun with the language :-).

Hey Everyone,
Not sure if anyone actually reads these posts, but I thought I'd write anyway. My family and I have been in Chengdu for a little over a month. So far, we love it even though we still don't speak more than 10 words of the language. We are grateful, however, that our 3 children are learning it extremely fast..lol. Haven't been tracking anything on SP because we have been adjusting to life here but I was surprisingly happy to find out I lost 5 pounds since coming here. I have been watching what I eat and exercising though. I contribute it to the fact that I must walk up the 6 flights of steps to our apartment. I hope this team is still active because it would be nice to find people that have similar experiences. Let the journey of life be fun and yummy... especially in spicy Chengdu!!

Hi everyone,
My name is Rachel, and I'm an american living in Hong Kong just over four years now. I love it here, but over the last four years, I've been quite hard on my health so since I intend to be here as long as possible, it's time to turn that around. I'm so happy to have found this group!

Dajia hao ^_^ I'm an American living in Lanzhou, Gansu province. I'm a teacher and our school year is just getting going. I love the food here, but like everyone else, am a little confused about exactly what I'm eating.

I also like to cook and have a Chinese cookbook, but I'm stumped at how to reduce/replace all the vegetable oil. I'll wander on over to the food forum and post there.

Welcome, Acreek! I hope you find some help here. The biggest tip I can give is that on SparkPeople, jiaozi are called "potstickers". But I think the calorie count may be off, since potstickers are technically fried, while jiaozi are boiled.

My husband and I recently moved to China and are working as teachers at a university in the Hubei province.

I've been on sparkpeople for only a couple of weeks and have already discovered how hard it can be to track the food I eat here.

Today I decided to do a hunt for a new team...and I discovered "Chinese Firecrackers" to my pleasant surprise.

Hopefully this group will be a great help!

Hi Trent! Welcome to the club. :) How's life in Shanghai?

I hope you are able to regain your good habits. I know what it's like to have injuries/health concerns set you back a ways. But your previous victories are a great place to begin.

Best of luck!

My name is Trent, I live and work in Shanghai, we have been here for 5 1/2 years this time. Jul '03 to present.

Last time we lived here (1997-2000), I bulged up to about 283 before I decided to stop the bleeding. I managed over the course of 14 months to bring it down to 225 which was good.

But, a string of injuries, combined with loss of habits, returning to the US, family medical concerns, stressful job etc, brought me back to China at 264 and over the past five plus years, I have gained even more.

Now, humbly I begin what I call my INDEPENDENCE MOVEMENT to 194# which will take me through a long and difficult process to a much healthier me by my 50th B-day in 17 months.

I don't plan to leave China, so you guys are my best support group!

Greetings,
What a great team! I am new to the team but not Sparkpeople. In 2006-2007 I lost 35 pounds with Sparkpeople. I have since moved to China, Sichuan province and want to lose some more weight. I have not gained back any of the weight I lost but am ready to get started again.
I was so excited to see this team and some of the calorie lists for Chinese foods. Does anyone know the calorie count for youtiao? :) My favorite breakfast food!

Hello, I'm a Canadian who has been living in Dalian, China for two months now. Two years ago I used Spark to help me lose 20 pounds... today I'm back where I started and ready to get back on the bandwagon. I was worried about trying to track Chinese food, but I can see already this group will be a big help!

hi
I am kathy, from hawaii, have visited hong kong and canton many times over 35 years or so.
my husband is Chinese and loves dim sum.
here is a site I found about calories for dim sum and other chinese foods. I tried to enter some of them in the foods list in the nutrition tracker for others to see, but when i tried to find them I could not. The chinese food can have a lot of calories. who ever figures out how to have a low calorie dim sum please let me know. aloha

Hi everyone. I'm an American living in Beijing. My husband and I moved here about four months ago, and I've found cooking to be a difficult thing to do in such a different culture. I really love the calorie counts that you have posted because, whenever I don't know what to make, we eat at our local "hole in the wall" Chinese restaurant for super cheap. Try putting "gan mien bein dou" into the food counter, though. Haha. Anyway, I look forward to sharing this new experience with you all.

I think I am quite lucky that I have a lot of Chinese supermarkets here. I know some of the western people like using hoi sin sauce for cooking also.

Siu Li, I don't know about the weather in your area, but even in Toronto, we can plant winter melon in our backyard in summer time. It is easy to grow, so far as it has enough water. Before winter come, you may cut out the melon and place them in the basement which can last for the whole winter. emoticon

I didn't know that about Bing cherries.

Speaking of Chinese and western mixtures, once when my sister was visiting me in Beijing, she almost made a peanut butter and hoisin sauce sandwich. Fortunately I caught her in time.

LOL! Lotus -- your mentioning calling long distance to Hong Kong for a recipe reminded me of the time my daughter called from England. She wanted to make Red Cooked (hongshao) Chicken Wings, but couldn't find any wings in the market! (I told her to cut up a chicken and adjust the cooking time) Also, a son called from Texas while I was in a meeting.(I live in NJ) He needed some hoisin sauce, but there were no Chinese stores near him. (I told him to use plum jam) LOL!

I had heard of the Canton town connection with Sunkist oranges. Also Bing cherries were named after a Chinese farm foreman, who worked closely with a famous horticulturist, in the late 1800s.

Dear all, my grandmother was talented (just like most of the ladies from her homeland) in cooking. She could cook most of the famous Shuen Tak food (which I learnt a little bit from my elder brother and will share with you later.) Sometimes after my elder brother dined out, he might describe to her what new dishes he came across, then grandma could cook it for him.
When I was small, grandma was the cook in my family and so even my mom didn't have to cook and so she learnt very little from her. For me, I learnt even little from my mom. However, my elder brother is a good supervisor in cooking (he only talks and seldom cooks). He is now living in Hong Kong, whenever I have problems in cooking, I give him a LD call.
After immigrated to Canada, because of the ingredients being sold in the supermarket, I have to learn more western style cooking too. I have a lot of Chinese cookbook at home, but, as you know, there are always some important hints which are not mentioned in the books. At that time, I have to share the experience from my family members and friends.
BTW, my late mother-in-law was also from Shuen Tak also. Her famous recipe was soya sauce chicken.
Talking too much this time, I hope I didn't make you feel boring. Tell you more next time. It is so nice to know you all. emoticon

Hi Lotus! Ni hao! So happy you have joined up!

I am not Chinese, but my love and passions are all Chinese. I am totally immersed.

Toronto's Chinatown is one of the two Chinatowns I would love to visit. I live near NYC and have visited many Chinatowns in the US -- but hopefully someday I will have a chance to go to Toronto and Vancouver. You are from my favorite city in the world ---- HongKong.

What do you cook, and how is it different from what your Grandmother did? Do you follow cookbook recipes, or just use your own routine ?-- (if that is a way to describe cooking from your mind and heart.)

Dear Lotus, how wonderful to have you with us. I am 1/2 Chinese. My father was from Sun Wei City-outside of Canton. I didn't learn the language from him but am studying now on my own. I also love to cook Chinese food. Please share all that you can. emoticon

Hi, everyone. I just drop by and would like to say hi to you all. emoticon
I am a Chinese and was born in Hong Kong. I immigrated to Canada a few years ago and now I am living in Toronto. My grandmother was from Shuen Tak (I don't know it's official English spelling), a place in Canton which is famous as a 'land of fish and rice'. She was a very good cook but it is pity that I didn't learn much from her and she passed away almost 20 years ago. I am now living in Toronto, some call it a mini Hong Kong. We have plenty Chinese restaurants here and I cook Chinese food most of my time. I have been to Beijing about 2 years ago for a short trip. I practice Chinese calligraphy also.
We have some very active members here and I hope I can share my Chinese 'knowledge' (though it is limited) with you all.

Watching the film and pictures coming out of that devastated area makes me want to cry. When I see couples with children that survived I have tears of joy for them and tears of sadness for one couple with their little one who didn't make it. Who is to say who is going to make it and who isn't?

I understand that people are now getting angry for sub-standard buildings. For instance in those schools.

But one thing that stands out is the stark difference the way the Chinese government, (both national and regional) is handling this tragedy. Such a contrast to what is happening in Burma!

It breaks my heart to watch the news also. I was in a lot of earthquakes when I lived in the Phillipines but nothing devestating.

I felt it in Beijing (http://willnot-willso.livejournal.com/109
900.html), though at the time I had no idea it was such a huge earthquake.

It was the third one I've felt since moving here, and the others were closer and smaller. I couldn't imagine that the earthquake I felt could have been all the way from Sichuan.

I have to avoid watching the news. It makes me cry.

It is really terrible, over 20,000 casualties. I'm in Shanghai and I've heard some people in skyscrapers here at the time could feel tremors from it.

I guess those on this forum, who live in China, are all in the Beijing area --- and not effected (physically) by the horrors in Sichuan. Such a terrible thing. God bless all those who have lost their lives, their families, those who are injured and all those who are there trying to help.

It should. It is available on cd also, but I like the chip. I just ordered Chinese 2 & Spanish so that I can keep my Spanish up to par. You can listen to a sample lesson on the web site also.

Please don't be too impressed. I just love to learn.
If you are interested in learning French (which I would also like to learn along with about 6 other languages!!) try the Pimsleur method. Just load the chip into your ipod & there you go. I love the portability of it. I use it in the car a lot & it's a good way to learn. www.pimsleurdirect.com
Right now they are running a sale of 20% off of everything. Just use the code GRANDOPENING when you place an order.

That is impressive Suili. I can use some lessons in both Cantonese and Mandarin too! It is more useful if you first can understand Cantonese, I can make out some Mandarin words when I hear it because my mom speaks both.
I would also love to master French someday.

Hi Jo Ann- About 3 years ago my boss did ask me to do work on Disney Hong Kong but I turned it down because it was too much of a long commitment. It was 3 month+ and at that time I just couldnt do it and it was during the summer months! Working on a construction site is not all that glamourous. I have my fair share working on site and it's pretty grueling physically.

Cantonese has more tones (9) then Manderin (4), so yes it is more difficult. I grew up listening to Cantonese though so I am more used to hearing it.I do pretty well with not getting them mixed up. Sometimes I booboo. I took Spanish in school & have also studied that off & on over the years. I've had a lot of Spanish speaking friends & neighbors which has helped & spent a little time in Mexico. I love languages & different cultures but Chinese is at the top of the list.

Belated Mother's Day wishes to all!

It has been a while since my last visit to China (1997) but I guess the food has changed since my first visit in '84. There wasn't a McDonalds to be seen then!! If I were back there now, tho, I think I would still search out the traditional places. Even the most run-down places seem to have dishes that are gems. There was one place that was crowded with guys that spit. The table was wiped off with a dirty rag. BUT -- they had the best Salt and Pepper Shrimp I've ever had. I'll always remember them!

SuiLi -- I now realize that you are also studying Cantonese. I am in awe! Mandarin is one thing, but Cantonese has got to be really difficult. Do you get them mixed up?

Sunnibunni -- will your work travel ever take you to China? The first time I was on the Great Wall, I walked into some fog. I was way up beyond where people usually go, and I was all alone. It was almost a mystical experience!

Hi everybody! I'm Annie and I dont live in China but I've visited Beijing, Shanghai and Fuzhou about 5 years ago. I was born in Canton and I grew up NYC.

I had to join this team becauce I've saw the Great Wall pic. That was an amazing climb!

Hey Suili, good to see you again.

Hi Jo-Ann: Sorry it took so long for me to get back to you. I have only started to study Manderin this year. I am more actively studying Cantonese since it is the language of my family. I don't expect to be fluent, but I enjoy the program (Pimsleur)that I use & am learning. Please share any recipes -culture info on China if you can. emoticon

Haiqin -- I envy your living so long in China AND -- that long in Beijing! I also crave everyone of the dishes you mentioned. They sound wonderful! Simple but regional food at its best. I know of a mei cai, but is it not a fresh vegetable -- but a pickled one. Is the one you mentioned a fresh leafy green? There are so many wonderful Chinese vegetables -- and leafy green ones, that you find here in Chinese grocers, but rarely in a Chinese restaurant. Dou miao and Chinese broccoli (gai lan cai) and cai xin are onlyfound in a really good place or one with a Chinese menu and clientel. And yes -- there is too much emphasis on the meat part. I understand why there are so many stir/fried foods or deep/fried foods -- fast stuff that can be on a table in minutes, but there are so many good casseroles and steamed foods that no wonder most people don't know the range of what Chinese food is all about. And --- I am married to a guy who would order Chicken Chow Mein EVERY time -- if it was left up to him! {{{{{{sigh}}}}}}}

Wo hao, Suili, xiexie! Ni ne? When I was a kid,I went with my parents to Boston's Chinatown quite often--- the time of chop suey, chow mein, and when egg fu yong was exotic! I don't know where I really moved into the total love and fascination, but it was before we were married (50 yeqrs now) and along the way, my cookbooks became my teachers. Before I started teaching I was quite good about boning and stuffing a duck, for instance, but I have to say that I love to eat out or get take-out now. But I am quite fussy. Thank goodness there are plenty of places, in this area, where the chefs go beyond 'sweet andsour pork' and use pork belly in their Hui Guo Rou, or make a dish with Chinese sausage -- and where the vegetable of the day is a wonderful leafy green with oyster sauce. I also found a Sichuan place that makes a shredded potato dish that I had only seen in Beijing and in only one of my cookbooks -- shredded with a Sichuan peppercorn flavor. A wonderful dish!!

How long have you been studying Mandarin? I do so wish I was fluent, but I'm happy just my little knowledge and my appreciation and wonder of the Chinese character is neverending.

I combine eating out and preparing food at home. I only cook once in a while, and when I do, it's usually western food. I doubt if I could make the Chinese dishes as well as the restaurants do, and it's a lot easier to eat out. Even the cheapest restaurants usually have great food.

When I eat out, my favorite dishes are:

1. gang bien bien dou (a spicy green bean dish)
2. di san xien (a dish from northeastern China that has eggplant, green peppers, and potatoes)
3. stir-fried bokchoy with mushroom
4. a stir-fried green vegetable that you don't have in America (I think) It's called you mai cai
5. lamb, cilantro, and cumin
6. Mongolian hotpot (with lamb)
7. a dish that has pork strips and onions wrapped in dried tofu (like a poor man's Beijing duck)

Those are just a few. The eggplant dish is my all-time favorite, from when I lived in the Northeast.

I have eaten a lot of weird things, mostly at banquets. The only thing strange that I really like is chicken hearts, skewered and roasted over coal. Yum!

Ni Hao, Jo. Chinese food is a real passion for me. My cookbook collection is taking over my kitchen. I don't live in China, but I cook Chinese several times per week. I grew up with good authenic Chinese food. My father & half brother were/are supurb cooks. What we get in resterants here is not good Chinese food in most instances. I remember my father taking me to Chinese resterants when I was a child-totally different. There is too much emphasis on the meat part now which is geared to American tastes. I remember my brother coming to stay with me for 2 weeks years ago after I married. I bought 1 pork butt & he made a beefsteak dish. We ate like kings. Watching him make fresh spring roll wrappers was amazing.I am fortunate to have a good Chinese rest. in Gettysburg. I am 1 1/2 hrs. away from Wash. D.C. Chinatown. I am going to a large Asian grocery today to re-stock. Flavor & Fortune is a wonderful magazine. I am so happy to have found it. I wish there were more Chinese cooking shows on tv. I watch CCTV a lot but there is not much on food & cooking. I have enjoyed the Chinese/Asian by Andrew Zimmern & Anthony Bourdain.

Hopefully I can add something to this forum. My interest in Chinese food is real, deep, and always curious and expanding.

I was wondering about those of you who are now living in China. Do you cook for yourselves, and if so, do you cook in a Chinese manner? Or do you eat out most of the time? What do you eat when out? Are you daring?

One of my study sessions in Beijing, I ate dorm food -- and it wasn't bad. Also, I ate localy with some interesting experiences. At the other 6-week study session, also in Beijing, I was in a Chinese hotel and ate out all the time. Steamed buns and tea eggs from a street stall were breakfasts most of the time --- eaten in a vine covered arbor. Wonderful memories of that! But what comes to mind, when I think of street food are Jian Bing! I live in Northern NJ, and not too far from NY's Chinatown. How I wish they had a Jian Bing kiosk there!! I'd be there all the time!!

I just renewed my Flavor and Fortune, so I guess I've been getting it for a year. A great magazine! I had heard of Jacqueline Newman a few years ago and was amazed at her ?Chinese cookbook collection. She topped what I had/have!

Years ago, there was a Wok Talk, published by the Chinese Grocer in San Francisco. But after a few years it phased out -- sadly. I loved it and refer to my old copies all the time.

One of my books -- An Ency. of Chinese Food and Cooking (Chang/Kutscher) has a 3 page section of nutritional % of a few specific items, rather than dishes, but 3 pages is really not much. One salt-free book has 5 pages of specific foods also, but neither of those two books cover sugar grams.

"Secret's of Fat-Free Chinese Cooking" and "The Healthy Gourmet Chinese Cooking" have nutritional values for all their recipes, but also not for sugar grams.

I checked out Asian Forum, but nothing was going on. I do go to About.com's Chinese Cuisine daily and it is a great site for Chinese food and cooking in general, altho not as active as it use to be in the forum. Also I link on to e-Gullet China and Chinese Cuisine where most are Chinese and some great food subjects.

With all the people involved in SparkPeople, and all the different topics, I was suprised not to find something here - until I found this site. Ihope I can add to it.

Hi, Jo: Don't worry-I don't live in China either. I am 1/2 Chinese living in PA., but love EVERYTHING Chinese. This team has welcomed me with open arms & hearts. I also belong to Asian Fusion but they don't post much. My collection of Chinese cookbooks is awesome. There is not too much with calorie counts though. Whenever I purchase items at the Asian grocery I put the counts into my Palm Pilot. I have 1 book from Hong Kong but there is not too much in it. It doesn'ttell you what a serving is for most items. Stay with us here & we'll all work together on this. Are any of you familiar with the magazine Flavor & Fortune? It is the only mag I know of that is devoted to Chinese cuisine.

I have looked all over SparkPeople for a good Chinese food forum ------ but can't seem to find any. There was one, but it seems to have eased on out. Do any of you know of one?

Since I am neither Chinese nor living in China, I really don't qualify being here, but the topic of calorie/nutrition counts on Chinese food intrigued me, so I thought I'd drop in to just add my 2 cents.

I have an awful lot of Chinese cookbooks (I teach Chinese cooking) but it only seems to be the newer Chinese diet books -- or those with a health angle -- that list nutritional values, and those don't seem to include sugar grams.

On line, there are some sites that have some nutritional lists of certain dishes. One is here on SparkPeople:

http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/Calor
ie_Finder_restaurant.asp?FoodID=Chinese


Another is About.com's Chinese food:

http://chinesefood.about.com/library/blc
aloriecounters.htm


Some 'calorie counter' paperbacks have Asian listings, but there doesn't seem to be any that are totally dedicated to not just dishes, but ingredients, too.

I envy those of you who are living in China! Oh -- to spend even just one year there would be a dream. I have travelled there many times and have studied in Beijing, but the study was just for short 6 week terms. When I've travelled there I kept food logs and they are now treasures. I don't think I will ever go back. Age and arthritis are taking their toll, but I still am fascinated by the food -- language and culture.

If I should come across a good listing of calories in Chinese food, I'll grab it and let you all know.

Welcome, Blue and Babylova! I'm so glad to see you here.

I looked for calorie count books for Chinese foods while I was in Hong Kong, but I only found things for Western foods. I'm sure there was something there in the Chinese section, but everything was in complex characters, and it was too hard to figure out.

Maybe we should compile our own book, and make a few yuan....

Hi, I just joined the team. I'm an American living in Shanghai. I have been living in China for almost 2 years now. My husband and I teach kindergarten and it's exhausting! I need to find motivation to go to the gym after working all day. I'm going to start going again over this May holiday.

I might be going to Hong Kong for the May 1 holiday, so maybe I'll look around there for some books about that.

If not, I'll just keep trying to add up the ingredients.

Calorie counts for Chinese food are difficult. I've always wondered if there is a calorie counter published in China. My calorie king program has a few Asian items but that is resteraunt food. Home cooking is more difficult. Sometimes I try to break down the components in a dish but that can be hard too. There is a book called "Let's Check the Calories" which I ordered from Hong Kong. It has 83 pages with counts on some things. I will include the link for the place I ordered it from. They have a wonderful list of Asian cookbooks.

Welcome Sherry / Sui Li! Of course you can be here!

Studying both Cantonese and Mandarin would be a big challenge! Have you found any tips for counting calories in Chinese food? I've created some food combinations and saved them using the nutrition tracker here. But most of the time I just guess.

Thank you. Chinese food is my absolute favorite to eat & cook. I probably have about 150 Chinese cookbooks-one of my hobbies is collecting them. I am also trying to study both Cantonese & Manderin as my father did not teach me his Cantonese. I am looking forword to being a part of your team. emoticon

Hello. I do not live in China but I am Chinese on my fathers side. I have been looking for a Chinese team as I love anything & everything Chinese. Am I allowed here or should I look elsewhere? I am in PA. USA. I have many Chinese friends & extended family.

I haven't had problems with Chinese food being bad for me in itself (I'm not into the oily fried things so much). But I have a big problem with not knowing how many calories the food is, and not knowing how much I've eaten. It makes it really hard to limit myself.

Hmm... well, Chinese food is bad for you. I have noticed that all the girls I see here are either really skinny or pretty fat, like they could stand to gain five pounds or lose fifty -- there is nothing in between. That's because a lot of the girls have the metabolism to eat this food, and some don't. I definitely don't and I live in Beijing now and I am trying SO hard but it's really difficult!
