    The dishes we buy are made to sell, in other words, to suit the American pallet. You can bet in their native country, they don't taste anything like what we buy here in the restaurants/takeouts.

    How can anyone not retain water? Doesn't make any sense.

    If anyone were to have a meal there will be some kind of drink nearby, usually it would be water.

    Too much of anything will affect anybody so why is it different with Asians?

    Because you're buying Asian style American sauce, not traditional stuff. They also exercise.
