At my old job, I visited my companies factories in Asia. There, the people actually live AT the factories, with dorm-type rooms. They live, eat, bathe, work, all at the same place. I was able to observe them for about a week.
So, mealtime comes. Twice a day, not three. They do not get a breakfast. At lunchtime, and at dinner (the exact same food), they sit at large round tables, and the cooks bring out these huge round stainless steel bowls. Each person has a medium-sized bowl and a set of chopsticks, plus a tea cup. In the SS bowls: One bowl is tons of veggies with a little bit of protein; it might be meat, fish, etc., depending on availability). The other bowl is a huge bowl of white sticky rice. Each person takes one serving of each. Twice a day. That's IT. We asked the management silly questions, like what about dessert? He laughed, and said "We never eat dessert".
We Americans (about 70 of us) seemed HUGE in comparison to them. Our average weight might have been, say, 145 for females, 190 for males. Their average weight would be, if I'd guess, around 90 lbs. for females, 120 for males. And their heights much smaller too. Average female there was probably 5'0; average male around 5'4".
They just don't eat as much, in my observation. Now I realize these were factory conditions, but they were actually clean and quite nice, relative to what we saw outside the factory. We even toured their dorm rooms: looked, actually, like any American dorm room. Two twin beds, pushed up against walls, 1 small dresser, and a community toilet. Very clean, and the people even came out after we were done touring to "thank us" for their jobs. They applauded us, as they said without us marketing their products, they wouldn't have these "wonderful" jobs.
