MSN offers so-called diet secrets from skinny countries such as France (where 40% of adults are overweight), Italy (45%) and Greece, where more than two-thirds of adults are overweight. In its stead, I would like to offer real secrets from the really thin countries in the world: Ethiopia, Vietnam, Burundi and Somalia. You see, the real secret is to not eat too much in the first place. Ethiopia is one of the poorest countries in the world, Somalia has no government, Burundi has a GDP per capita of $90 (yes, ninety dollars) and Vietnam, well, their secret is their special Asian diet. That's why I suggest eating at Ginger on Yonge just south of Bloor.

The Burundi Beef Council did run an ad campaign a number of years back under the slogan "Beef: If only it could be for dinner".
