No matter how much money we spend on ourselves for looking slender and young, it’s never perfect for too long or permanent. We continuously keep on purchasing stuff such as anti-aging products and slimming products, unlike the Japanese who chooses to stay naturally fit and youthful though they age as well. They just don’t guise but even stay young and fit in an effortless manner; here are the reasons how.
10. Exercise is a daily ritual
Japanese people tend to be active with their daily work. Bicycle riding, walking, hiking are the incidental exercises that keep them healthy undoubtedly, they do get some time out for themselves for slight workouts but most of the Japanese do not build muscles intentionally.
9. Desserts are kept aside respectfully
Too much sweetness in Japanese people’s diet is not at all sweet for them; they know the effects which sugar can cause them so they keep it aside. They do like desserts, but they consume it in a minimum amount so they stay safe of every bad thing that excess sweetness may cause.
8. Breakfasts are like a king’s meal
The breakfast is said to be the major and the biggest meal of the day in Japan which really is, the breakfast consists of many fractions such as the green tea, steamed rice, omelette, fish, miso soup with tofu etc. It’s found that people who has a larger meal at breakfast and smaller at dinner tends to lose obesity faster.
7. Rice in every meal
In America, the major reason behind obesity is the flour, the bread that they have in every meal where else Japanese have their rice attached to every single meal. Rice is known to be one of the healthiest foods in the world as it gives us an ideal body weight and has many other benefits too.
6. Light cooked
Japanese are very health conscious when it comes to the food; they stay away from excess oil, heavy cooking or anything unhealthy. They choose fresh food, lightly and gently cooked such as quick stirs fries, pan grilling, steaming and boiling. They say, too much cooking destroys a good amount of food value.
5. A small portion of everything
Rather than having a food too much they go for varieties of food but in small portions, which is like they have a bit of everything in their meals. Japanese are trained to eat slow relishing each bite they take. They never fill up their plates, each item are served in separate dishes, dressed and garnished lightly and displayed by its natural beauty.
4. Fresh on season food
They choose food according to their season as the food turns out to be in its best quality by its environment and nature. Supermarkets in Japan are full of freshness and up-to-date foods, they believe in having food as soon as they are harvested.
2. Wholesome staple food
The ingredients every Japan homes own are nothing but treasures, all they have is wholesome, nutritious staples that make up their lives longer and healthier. They live longer and don’t look aged as their food habits and their living style are the ones which stand as a barrier against the wrinkles, aging spots, diseases and harmful fats in their bodies.
1. They enjoy food
Dieting is not into Japanese people’s list, they are more comfortable having and enjoying varieties of their food collections rather than starving themselves to lose weight. They have their own techniques and mind set to stay impeccable by consuming as a replacement of leaving. They appreciate their food habits which are a lifeline to their elongated lifespan.
