    Why is it that sushi is so filling, yet doesn't look all that?

    I can only guess it's because it's square and fills your stomach at a strange angle...

    Unless your stomach is constructed like a Tetris box. Such a neat theory Obituary, but so badly flawed...:becool:

    Sushi is vile. I hate it.

    Perhaps I haven't had the right kind but it really was horrid.

    I don't like it either that much, but have to eat it at lunches sometimes, so I just douse it in soy sauce and wassupi and swallow it whole.

    Often then I can't eat for about half a day after

    Soy sauce is definitely the way forward! Otherwise :becool:. I'm not dissing nipponese food as some of it is exquisite - things like Ramen and Katsu Kare are ace :smile:- it's just that limp cold ricey fish fragment stuff I can't stand.

    Just cover it in soya sauce and wassupi and swallow it and it's not so bad

    I think its the possible after effects that worry me most.

    as a sushi (and sashimi) lover I'm sorry to read the responses above. There's nothing quite like having some fish, patently fresh, sliced to melt in the mouth. And good sake is a real treat.

    My daughters took me out to dinner just before Christmas, and their accomplished ordering of sushi convinced me that I wasn't a complete failure as a parent.

    If only you'd told me that when mother was force-feeding me sprouts at Christmas.

    I'd have more iron coursing through my veins, and she wouldn't be locked in the airing cupboard.

    because sushi is compact, and thus fairly dense.

    So it expands in the stomach?
