How can foreigners eat well and stay healthy in China? In this episode of the Millennials in China podcast Chris and Hope discuss a variety of matters related to diet, oily Chinese food, gyms and wellness, as well as hospital visits in China. While China likely doesn’t offer the same level of comfort and healthy options available back in your home country, there are increasingly more and more solutions available now for an expat to keep a healthy and happy lifestyle.

Show Notes:

  • Chinese food in China vs Chinese food in the West, and how everything is so oily.
  • Beware the “digouyou” or “gutter oil” in China, and be vigilant when frequenting small local restaurants.
  • Healthy eating options in China - vegan and vegetarian options, imported meat and dairy, and how to get them.
  • Gyms in China, and how they are now found everywhere.
  • Different types and classes of gyms in China and how much you can expect to pay for a gym membership.
  • Getting sick in China and the unpleasantry of dealing with Chinese hospitals.
  • Chinese local hospitals vs international standard hospitals - massive difference in service and of course, price!
  • Nitty gritty details of Chinese local hospitals.
  • Sports and recreation in China, and advice for staying active with a sport or hobby you enjoy while here.
