Why Japanese Are So Thin According to Science

    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.

Hey everyone! How much do you weigh? 🙂 What is your dream weight? Here's a Japanese method to lose weight. It's unusual but it does work! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PE4nLROBng&t=1s

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.

my Japanese friend loves getting pizza and lemonade in between classes lol even during class she’ll have a few hard candies. sometimes once classes are over she’ll want to get gelato. but she does remain skinny. when there’s no classes she likes to go on bike rides or to the beach and paddle board. so i don’t think the food part really matters, just reasonable portions and plenty of exercise is key

I am a Canadian. I am 152 pound male 5'7" in height. I have a 6 to 8 hour eating window and I never snack outside this window. I don't eat fast food or sugary drinks. I have a little sugar in my coffee. I eat whole foods and no processed foods. I am not a fanatic. I eat this way because I enjoy it. I enjoy being at an appropriate weight and I appreciate the feeling of well being I have. Too many people make excuses and dont take responsibility for what they stuff in their face.

Not trying to be rude, but just because Japan is known for its sushi, doesn't mean everyone eats them regularly. After all, they are humans too and have different taste. It wouldn't surprise me to hear a japanese say he/she doesn't like sushi.

Believe it or not but science has proven that GENETICS play one of the most important rolls in if you are overweight or skinny. Sure, someone can go crazy and diet diet diet and lose weight, but genetically speaking they have to WORK REALLY HARD at being thin, where genetically, A lot of Asia has genetics where they will naturally be thin, and would STRUGGLE to gain weight, no matter what they eat or how active they are. Don’t get me wrong some people fall in between, but people need to start realistic that genetics play a big roll.

There are a couple of Asian cooking channels I very much enjoy on YouTube . There’s something relaxing about watching how different cultures address food. Here’s a trick for combatting that sweet tooth we have in America: buy bags of Mandarin oranges and keep them in the fridge. Peeling them is easier than dealing with their “full grown” cousins and when they are chilled they explode with sweetness. Plus they’re around 40 calories per fruit.
