According to statistical data,China is the most obese country in the world, about 90 million obese adults.But as for our neighbor Japan, the obesity rate was only 4%,it is the world's lowest obesity rate in developed countries. 

We all are east asian countries, the diet structure is not very different, Why are Japanese the thinnest?

一、Light and diversified diet
Japanese diet has been successfully incorporated into the intangible cultural heritage of UNESCO, One of the reasons is that its balanced with food nutrition.

Janpanese diet has the following 5 characteristics:

1、Lots of seafood: Japan is an island country, fish, shrimp, crabs and seaweeds are the main part of the food, which can be acknowledged from the most typical Japanese food ——sushi, spines.

2、Eating more vegetables: Although Japanese vegetable prices are not low, most Japanese prefer vegetables, also in supermarkets a lot of half-price vegetables are sold.

3、Spices are light: Traditional Japanese cuisine has a principle that is delicacy can not hide the original food taste. Greasy and spicy condiments are used very little, vinegar, soy sauce and mustard are relatively more.

4、Variety and less oil:Japanese diets’ common cooking methods are cooking, baking, steaming, chilling, cold mixing,etc.even eating raw food. Compared with domestic cooking, oil is much less, and fat is not easy to exceed the standard.

5、Special frying:Although there are high temperature fried foods,such as shrimp, octopus, pumpkin, lotus root and others, these are demanded that the coating surface is too thin to be thinner, and absorb the oil from fried foods with oil-absorbing paper.

二、slow eat and small tableware

Take box-lunch by oneself: Neither the solitary young nor the parents who prepare school children's lunches are careful about nutrition and color matching, and the amount of the lunches is small, perhaps a little rice (or rice ball), a small two-piece fried chicken, plus some vegetables and a few small tomatoes.

Small tableware: Traditional Janpanese food is preferrable with very small dishes as containers, food content is very small, although a variety of food materials, but easy to make people to have a illusion sense of eating a lot and to develop a habit of eating less.

Eating slowly: Japanese eat slowly, even snacks, they are more accustomed to chewing slowly, moderately small mouthfuls.

三、Pay more attention to diet education

Japanese children are required to have "food education" from the early age(food education is except Virtue, intelligence, body and labor education).

What kind of the early age? Perhaps from the time of birth, the mother and child health care period was carried out until kindergarten, primary school and middle school.

At the stage of compulsory education in Japan, students are required to eat at school, either the school has a canteen to do it by themselves or the school entrusts a catering center.
The school makes recipes by dietitians, and requires nutritionists with teachers' qualifications to formulate dietary goals.

The so-called "dietary goal" is that recipes are also recognised as a teaching material. Through eating, the school should teach students the correct structure of staple food + main dish + side dishes, and the nutritional characteristics of different ingredients, so that students can cherish food and choose healthy food from an early age.

Where did Japanese’ 4% fat person come from?

1、Areas with convenient transportation, the obesity rate is high.

Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan's highest obesity rate for men, has free elevators everywhere because 80% of the roads are sloping, and everyone can use them, and reducing exercise. Moreover, Nagasaki residents like sweets, and it's hard to think they are not fat.

2、Europeanized diet.

Okinawa Prefecture, for example, has a long history of Okinawa cuisine, but with the development of postwar, eating habits gradually Europeanized, fat intake on the high side resulting in a high obesity rate of Okinawa women.

3、Life is fast and stressful.

For example, in Tokyo, people's lives are much faster, more stressful, and less healthy. There are still a lot of fat people at the streets.

4、Exotic ways to lose weight, and the more they lose weight, the fatter they become.

Influenced by popular culture and public opinion, Japanese women are also thin. As the times require, there are a lot of exotic weight loss products, exotic health products, exotic weight loss methods, but these methods not only do not play a role in weight loss, but may also harm the body.

Of course, Japanese thin not only because of their healthy diet, but also because of many personal or social factors, such as daily life, exercise habits, ethnic characteristics, age composition of the whole population.

But there is no doubt that healthy eating habits can help lose weight and maintain a healthy body shape.

Therefore, their good habits, we should still learn,to take the essence and discard the dross.

To sum up, that is:

1、Diet is light, remove the bad habit of heavy oil, heavy salt and heavy sugar.

2、A variety of diet, pay attention to nutrition and color matching, eating healthy and happy.

3、Diet education, from childhood to learn the importance of healthy diet, cherish food and cherish health.

4、Eat slowly and enjoy tasty food while reducing digestive burden.

5、Moderate exercise can not only reduce weight, but also help reduce stress.

Remember these, don't forget to share it with your friends, refuse to be overweight and obese, and enjoy a healthy life together.
