Our species evolved eating a protein rich diet (nuts, berries, leaves, roots, and meat - meat making up most of the calories). The part of human history we have grown crops is a tiny fraction of human history (last 6-4000 years of homo sapiens 100,000 year history). I was a semi vegetarian (I occasionally ate fish) for about 2-3 years in my tweens/teens, and I think it may have hindered my physical development, as I am smaller than the other men in my family. Of course there is no way to know for sure. What I know is this, you won't get ripped eating spinach and tofu.

@Tonyaod

I'm not a big fan of the word 'loser'. It implies that life is a competition, a race, where we derive happiness by feeling superior to others, and depression from feeling inferior to the 'winners'. Life is just a series of moments. Happiness shouldn't be derived from results/current status (which are temporary) things but from within.

Also, lets not start this bullying culture again, calling people losers because they date chinese girlfriends.

a very pleasant park with a tall pagoda you can climb and take photos of the city if you wish. Roses in summer, blossom in spring, nice lawn to sit on, bbq areas.

Recently the food seems to be better. Decent steak at a decent price, decent pizza, some decent wine, and the music is more suitable these days (Rammenstein wasn't the right mood music for Cantina)!

Had lunch - grilled chicken on top of mashed cuttlefish and a salad. The chicken was tasty and well cooked, and there was plenty of meat/fish to fill up even a hungry person. The salad was overdressed and nothing special - I won't order one next time. The service is a decent imitation of what you might find in the west. A large menu of food and drink. A nice civilised place to go for food or drink, but some of the dishes (i.e. the steaks) are very pricey. You could easily spend 300rmb+ per person here. Equally, it is possible to have lunch for under 60rmb per person (as we did). Warning - the bottle of water on each table costs an eye watering 48rmb! Don't be a sucker by opening it!

Went for a spot of lunch. Best pizza I've had in Kunming by some distance. In fact, one of the best pizzas I've ever had - quality ingredients, thin base, cooked to perfection. Sashimi salmon tasted very fresh and was well presented. The drinks are expensive, and one of the waiters was letting the side down by being a bit scruffy and impolite (hence not 5 stars), but definitely go and try the pizza.

Pretty mediocre burgers accompanied by completely overcooked 'fries'/chips. Drafty, a bit smelly, and infested with mosquitos and noisy teenagers. Soup not bad but nothing special. Nothing French about the decor or atmosphere (there isn't any outdoor seating). Haven't tried the coffee. I hope it will close and be replaced by a decent bar or restaurant. A burger bar with the Moondog chef in the kitchen would be perfect, and with Brooklyn just a few metres away way would make a great little foreign food and drink scene!
