Your story reminds me of an Afghanistan memory. I was sometimes based at Camp Souter, the British Army Base in Kabul, and we ate in the soldier’s mess. We noticed that the ‘last out’ eaters, (apart from us) were new infantry recruits from some South Sea islands (Fiji etc), and when we mentioned that to one of the catering staff, he said it was a ‘cultural’ thing, these young men just weren’t used to being able to eat as much as they wanted, for free, and their eating frenzy usually disappeared after they had been there a few weeks, and got used to the idea.
