Chongqing Restaurant Offers Discounts Based on Weight

Chongqing Restaurant Offers Discounts Based on Weight
Dec 12, 2014 By eChinacities.com

According to CRI English, a restaurant in Chongqing has come up with a new promotion; customers are weighed and offered discounts based on their weight. For men, the heavier they are, the larger the discount. Women however, are offered a discount based on how little they weigh.

In fact, if a woman weighs less than 34.5 kilos she gets her meal for free! A pretty safe deal for the restaurant as any adult that weighs that little probably doesn’t ingest too much food.

There is also apparently a restaurant in Shanghai that operates on a similar basis; people are offered discounts according to their height.

This girl whose parents have made an online appeal for help because she is suffering from severe anorexia is too heavy to get a free meal at this restaurant http://www.thenanfang.com/blog/china-struggles-to-come-to-grips-with-anorexia/

It is also interesting to note that the restaurant is implicitly suggesting that women should loose (more) weight and/or become underweight (34.5kg being dangerously underweight for an adult).

Its an interesting restaurant, lol !!!! Making men fatter and the ladies thinner, I think it'll work out fine, as far as the food is good :)
