Celebrity Fitness & Chinese Food

Home Fun Stuff Celebrity Fitness & Chinese Food


Does celebrity fitness have anything to do with Chinese food? You bet. Some of the fittest people in the world relish Chinese food, not to mention those Chinese athletics who are world champions.

Chinese food is an enjoyment when you are on your way to fitness. It's normally not a weight loss diet on the market like the cookie diet, which are specially formulated for losing weight.

But some Chinese teas, such as green tea, wulong tea and slimming tea are pretty good drinks that can help you reach your health goals if weight loss is on your mind. These weight loss teas have been effective for many.

Celebrities & Chinese Food

Chinese food is a celebrity food, though it is also loved by numerous non-celebs. A good cuisine is like that, relished by all kinds of people.

Have you sat in a Chinese restaurant and turned to find a famous face at the next table? You are not alone. If you have a interesting story to tell, please share with me and others here.

Shaun White

Shaun White Shaun White: (Born September 3, 1986)

An American professional snowboarder and skateboarder, two-time Olympic gold medalist, a celebrity fitness icon. His favorite food: Chinese food.

Here is what from Asianista.com, March 3, 2010:

Shaun White was interviewed on celebrity gossip show The Insider tonight and quizzed about his favorite things.

Favorite food? “Chinese food,” he said.

I'm glad he likes Chinese food. It’s too bad he wasn't asked to name his favorite dishes. What does he like? Chinese lemon chicken? Mongolian beef? Chinese BBQ pork? Fried rice? I wonder!

Sasha Cohen

Sasha CohenSasha Cohen: (Born October 26, 1984 )

A U.S. champion figure skater, Olympic silver medalist, three-time World Championship medalist, celebrity fitness icon.

I love to watch her beautiful performances and am glad she learned to cook Chinese food as her entertainment. It's among the three things she loves doing... Cooking/baking with friends and family, seeing theater and sleeping.

And she'd been enjoying Chinese food for many years before she began to learn to cook it. She must be very motivated. She said she often went out with friends to eat Chinese food after training sessions when she was 12 ( Fire on Ice: Autobiography of a Figure Skater.)

I wonder if she uses a wok when she cooks. Does she even dive deep enough to know about seasoning a wok? Hmmm, maybe not.


Dizzy Gillespie

Dizzy GillespieDizzy Gillespie (October 21, 1917 – January 6, 1993), one of jazz's finest trumpet players, bandleaders, singers, and composers. He was also regarded as a master innovator and a superb showman. Chinese food was part of his life while he also enjoyed children and fooling around on the piano for fun.

Oct. 21, 2010, He was honored by Google with a doodle. I love how his cheek was emphasized. It's a signature of this famous trumpeter.

The following is from wabash.edu, magazine 2002 :

What I do remember is the perfect correspondence between the Dizzy Gillespie I had photographed and the person discussed by the panel. He loved children, had an affinity for Bangladesh, ate vegetarian Chinese food, and doodled on the piano during intermission. That conversation affirmed my love for Dizzy and the Teacup: the montage of image and story was honest.

I wonder if he had some of these Chinese vegetable dishes.
