Too much lamb is not good for some people

TRADITIONAL Chinese medicine doctors are warning people not to eat too much mutton in winter as the meat can make them feel thirsty and dry-throat.

It is a Chinese tradition to eat tonic foods that can increase circulation and strengthen the body against cold weather. Lamb and beef are top choices as they can generate a lot of energy and heat.

"A person should take nourishment according to his or her physical condition," said Dr Wang Qihuai from Shanghai Xupu Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital. "People lacking vital energy and having cold hands and feet in winter can try lamb and beef dishes, but those who feel thirsty and hot should avoid these dishes which only yield opposite effects."
