The diet trend/technique that asians (females in particular) use to aid in their conquest of fasion and trendy-ness. They starve themselves to successfully save up their money to be able to purchase anything designer and expensive.
That is why you always see slender asian females sporting the ever so glam Gucci sachels or Chanel Clutches. Forget Hello Kitty, this is a Hello Couture diet!
Ling Lee: Hey Mimi San! Let's go grab some sushi and Cocktails.
Mimi San: Sorry Ling Lee I would, but i have my eyes on a nice pair of Fendi pumps and a matching tote. I need to save my money so maybe next time.
Ling Lee: I see that you are practicing some Asian Starvation Mimi, Good luck!
