    Why are Japanese people so thin? What do people eat in Japan? While the rest of the world is seeing anywhere from 15 to over 30% of its population severely overweight, Japan has managed to keep that number at just 3.6%. When it comes to health tips, it's better to turn to the country with the longest life expectancy and one of the lowest obesity rates on the planet. If you’re ready to find out how the Japanese manage to stay so effortlessly thin, keep our new video!
    In Japan, they usually stick to 3 wholesome meals a day that don’t leave them hungry or dealing with sudden cravings. Those who do snack keep it in small quantities and with a lot of moderation.
    Also, the secret to Japan’s success begins with their diet, which is pretty carb-heavy and low in saturated fats. Their main dishes of choice include vegetables, grains, fish, and meat. Dairy products and fruits are consumed in moderation. They tend to stay away from foods with excessive amounts of salt and sugar, like burgers and soda.

    SUMMARY:
    - The secret to Japan’s success begins with their diet, which is pretty carb-heavy and low in saturated fats. Their main dishes of choice include vegetables, grains, fish, and meat.
    - Just like the rest of the world, a lot of Japanese people have a hectic schedule that doesn’t leave a lot of time or opportunity to prepare a home-cooked meal. In that case, they can turn to their version of fast food, which is usually a lot healthier and resembles home-style cooking.
    - Most Japanese people have very regulated meal times. They eat 3 filling meals a day, with breakfast usually happening between 8 and 9am, lunch from 12 to 1pm, and dinner between 6 and 8pm.
    - It’s a lot more common for Japanese children to walk or cycle to school. Of course, other countries have a lot of reasons why it might not be efficient or safe for kids to hoof it to class.
    - Portion sizes have been on a steep rise in the last 20 years throughout the world. For example, countries like Australia, Canada, Germany, the U.S., and the U.K. have much larger fast food portions than Japan.
    - Separate bicycle lanes and plenty of safe areas for pedestrians are common sites in Japan. This allows the Japanese to naturally burn calories as they commute to and from work or school every day.
    - Tea, especially the green variety, is the number one beverage in Japan. Green tea has been praised for having a ton of major health benefits, like increasing metabolism, burning fat, fighting anxiety, and reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, to name a few.
    - The practice of using chopsticks also helps in weight management, since they make you eat more slowly and in smaller bites. This slow process of eating helps people catch when they’re feeling full and avoid eating too much. The fact that food is served on a bunch of plates also slows down the process.
    - The number one way that the Japanese stay thin has to do with removing distractions and being mindful about the process of food consumption. Eating in Japan is treated with respect.

Have you ever been to Japan? It's very common for young Japanese to eat out while at work for lunch and it's a huge social norm to eat out on dates. The most common restaurant food in Japan consists of fried pork cutlets, Deep Fried chicken, don (things on a bed of rice), Tempura which is basically deep fried stuff and yakitori which is grilled meat braised in sugar. Also, 7/11 and Family Mart are some of the most popular shops per square mile which specialize in selling snacks with high calories. Many young Japanese people are not thin because of these reasons. Much of what we are sold about Japan is simply not true. The only way to really know is to go there. FYI Japan is also not futuristic, there are no flying cars and it's not common to see Gashia all over Japan. Just saying.

Really? I go to Japan and China no less that 6 times a year for work. MacDonald's, Burger King, Pizza hut are just as busy there if not more so than in the states. I agree the middle age and older adults eat fast food less but you see just as many 45 on down at the fast food places. In reality Japanese people work from sun up until way past sundown so they have little time to go home and cook. As with the USA most the time both the male and females both have to work in the family to stay a float. A large part of why they stay thin is WHAT they eat, even at fast food places and DNA.

Being thin isnt always ideal. Ive seen many japanese and they dont look fit. Imo thin is better than obese, but their thin is not the healthiest either. They are slender but have no muscles. Walking and cycling are good cardio but many don't lift weights. Many aren't as strong.

I'm trained in culinary art. Unlike America, their "fast food" cooks are too proud to be made from anything but scratch, so it's nothing like the frankenfood we get from restaurants (pre-processed, nuked, etc.,... ).

this video is filled with bunch of stereotypes about japanese people that are either generalization or untrue. the major reason why japanese people are healthier is cuz they eat healthier food. they est rice and fresh food that are much healthier than bread and overcooked vegetables and meat like people do in west. they eat much less sugar and the desserts are much smaller. their drinks are also healthier and based of either fruits or tea with less sugar and less to no additives. and beside sugar additives also play a huge roll in unhealthy life so japanese people tend to not use additives or at least use them less. when you buy snacks there you'll realize that most of their popular snacks are either based of fruits or seafood. it would be a dried squid or crab flavoured crisps/chips while in west people eat a lot of junk food with additives. and it is also not unnoticed that they love to play with snacks so that also makes people have fun and do something while preparing snacks which keeps body active instead of just sitting on a bed and eating a bag of chips and cookies while drinking coke.
