Hey there! Xining certainly far from where I am (Beijing)! I have been cooking at home a lot more recently, and I think it's been good for me. I found a place that delivers groceries (including fresh fruit and vegetables), and it's been great.

Hi, I am new to sparkpeople and to the Chinese Firecrackers. I am in Xining City in Qinghai Province. I noticed your topic and wanted to comment on it. All I can say is watch the rice. It's empty calories. I have some friends who do not order it anymore when they eat Chinese food. And if you can cook at home that's probably best for watching nutrition. I eat a lot healthier here than I do in the states because I am always cooking from scratch and eating mostly veggies.

Welcome! It can be hard to watch what you eat here, partly because of the oily food, and partly because who knows what portions you're getting. It is hard for me to cook at home, too, because of a lack of time and a very tiny and inconvenient kitchen! I feel your pain!

I am new to this team but not Sparkpeople. We moved to China about a year ago and have had difficulty figuring out how to eat healthy without a lot of hassle!
I am a retired nurse and my husband and I love to travel and decided to come here to learn the language.
I have been a member of Sparkpeople for several years and successfully lost 35 pounds with their assistance.
I have not regained any weight but would like to lose more...so any help with Chinese food choices will be greatly appreciated.

Wishing everyone great success!

Hi! I am a Canadian nurse living and studying language in Xining. I find it challenging to keep the weight down due to the oily, starchy food, but I am often too busy to cook for myself. I am also concerned about getting enough nutrients to avoid illness. I will be getting married in the new year and concerned about how I will look in the wedding dress and want to feel confident and not worry about body image.

I feel im not getting the nutrients i would back home.. Oh by the way im from California lived in Newport Beach and SF. Im also half Lebanese and love love there food. Any ways hope to hear from you guys. Peace
