    Japanese people i believe despise fat people. Therfore, the majority of the japanese population eat healthy to stay fit. Fish and rice is part of their culture. On the other hand, eating junk food is part of our american culture.

    Firstly, a burger is not poisen anymore then a candy bar.

    Secondly, the Japanese diet is determined by several centuries of religious vegetarism and it's status as an island nation with the richest fishing beds in the world. You cannot say they watch their diet since in places like Tokyo it is not uncommon for people to eat out 3 meals a day, usually "fast food". It's just that their fast food is different from fast food found on continents with large rangeland.

    ... But I would not want to eat rice and fish everyday either.

    They DO eat rice every day with side dishes (e.g fish, vegies, curry, etc. . .) because rice is a MUST HAVE in their every meal like Chinese. . .

    ....and noodles. They will eat noodles everyday. It might even be considered the noodle capitol of the world even over Italy.

    In MY case there is no food I would want to eat every day.

    the majority of the people of Asia practice some type of martial art, which keeps them limber and flexible, they also have a nice diet in Japan which consists of more healty foods that here in the US

    Diet *is* a key factor. It is a fact that the United States is the "fattest" country on the planet. The citizens (as a majority) don't receive adequate exercise. Those two areas alone would go very far as to our life span. Red meat is the real killer here in the states, all of the steak, beef ribs, burgers, pork chops, etc. is terrible for our health. Pretty much anything that comes from a cow/pig is not good for you. Primarily seafood & chicken are the ideal types of meat to encourage a healthy lifestyle. This of course doesn't do it all, people have to get "off the couch" and do some exercise. I'm not talking about going crazy at the gym, just start out small with something (jogging crunches, etc.) The most important part is consistency. If you notice, a lot of elderly Japanese are still very active. Green tea does help as well, i'm addicted to is myself!

    well most of the food they eat is good.
    but it's what they put on their skins...ever notice the seaweed!
    and all those oils....... they also soak in coffee grounds too, it's a detoxifier too!!!
