Latinos are Hot & Sexy… Until We Move to the U.S.

Finally, somebody has come forward with a sound explanation of why I don’t look like my gorgeous self back in Mexico City like 20 years ago.

A new book by Dr. Manny Alvarez The Hot Latin Diet: The Fast Track Plan to a Bombshell Body, claims to have studied dozens of Latinos who have seen their gorgeous bodies turn into chubby, disgusting flabs as soon as they hit American soil.

Excerpt: Most families who immigrate from the Caribbean basin and other points of Latin America are fit and trim when they arrive in the United States; however, if you look at this same community three years later, they are usually overweight.”

To help counter such alarming trend, Dr. Manny includes in his book a series of recipes that include some “South American classics,” including avocados, garlic, tomatillos, cilantro, cinnamon and jalapeños…

Wait a second: I grew up eating lots of that stuff and -trust me- I am far from looking like the woman in the blue bikini.

Perhaps Dr. Manny can help further?

    Joder, vaya verdad como un piano…
    Entre trabajar demasiadas horas, disfrutar en poco tiempo porque no lo tienes (traducción: beber demasiado, comer demasiado y pocas veces al día en cortos plazos de tiempo, especialmente por la noche (cosas grasientas que “asienten” el alcohol en el estómago”) para poder salir corriendo (figuradamente) al trabajo en el que te vas a pegar otras cuatrocientas horas sentada delante de la computadora, pues sí, este país es dañino para la salud. Y eso que nunca he pisado un MacDonalds.
    Este país se va al carajo con lo “rápido”: comida rápida para el que no tiene tiempo. Espero que el tren vaya rápido porque no tengo tiempo. Niños, rápido a la cama que tengo que trabajar. Un besito. Esposo, un cuchicuchi rápido si estamos de suerte… Uy, el despertador, corriendo al autobús. Qué hambre tengo, y qué poco dinero. Sí, hola, te puedo ver de 7 a 7.30, Yo también te echo de menos, pero entro al tercer trabajo a las nueve.
    Y luego nos preguntamos si la civilización occidental es buena para la salud…
