One thing you’ll notice as you travel looking for the best countries to retire cheap is how much fatter the people in Malaysia are versus other Asian countries. 8.5 million Malaysians are overweight, while 4.4 million are obese.

I’ve lost quite a bit of weight travelling, due to carefully watching what I’m eating for budget and dietary reasons. It is difficult to gain weight when you’re spending $5 a day on food and going to the gym everyday and swimming. My traveling lifestyle has definitely reduced both my caloric intake  and increased my activity level.

Why are so many Malaysians overweight? A more recently developed nation, Malaysia has excellent transport and excellent food. Those two combined with hot weather keeping people indoors, has contributed to a nations swelling waist band. Coconut milk curries and fried food are definitely part of the problem. There are over 500 KFC restaurants with a 41% market share. KFC isn’t the only culprit, there’s a fried chicken place every I look, and it’s great fried chicken. I had a fantastic meal for $2 (6 rm), including unlimited fountain pop.

Pizza is also amazing here, it’s definitely the best I’ve had in Asia. Again it’s crazy cheap, a personal pizza was only $2  (6rm) at Dominoes. I could definitely seeing myself eating that every day.

And based on the fact that 11000 of the 122 000 police here are “obese” according to the national police chief,  they also love pizza everyday. What does that mean for you my fellow seekers of the best places to retire cheap?
