For a role, an actor might have to gain or lose a lot of weight, and it could at times be quite unhealthy. For example Christian Bale, 183 cm tall, dropped to 55kg to play the role of an insomniac in “The Machinist”. He lost 28 kg by eating fewer than 500 calaries a day.
In Chinese cuisine there is a delicacy called the 100 – year egg. Such an egg is not a 100 years old, but rather several weeks or months old. The duck, chicken or quail eggs that are used are preserved using a special recipe to bring out interesting flavours.
