The Ephemeral Nature of Chinese Food

So we tried to eat at a new sports bar-type restaurant that opened today downtown. After nursing our drinks for an hour (!) we all bailed and decided to hit the Chinese buffet for some instant gratification because we were, by that point, starving.

Two plates of mediocre-to-decent generic "Chinese" food later, I was wondering:

What is it with Chinese food that causes you to feel miserably bloated, yet still hungry, for the rest of the day?

I have a suspicion that it has something to do with sodium. I'm drinking enough water to float a small dinghy and I still feel like a lo-mein-filled balloon.

So I'm off Chinese food for a while...
