Well tbh those are just the ones you see in the media... um unless you've actually been to Japan and seen everyone there

Most westerners you see in the media are pretty slim too.

NO we have global charts that show that Japan in general meaning over all, have far less fat people than most other nations. America is ranked one of the fatter countries.. Americans like the fast food and Soda Pop to much.. It is mostly do to Diet... (that is what you eat for those that do not know what Diet stands for.)

OP never mentioned those, and I was talking in context.
But yes I do know that overall Asian nations have a lower percentage of obese people...

I guess it's cause fast food over there is typically ramen, not a triple bacon big mac with fries and a mcflurry for afters.
Their diet is generally less fatty... but I've noticed it has a lot of salt in it too... :S

It's not just the japanese. I think it's most asians. Also my theory is the chopstick. You put small amounts of food in your mouth with chopsticks than you do with spoons.


You and your weird theories.

Well, asians really care about their image ALOT. Well, most of us. I am always on diet because it's pretty hard to maintain my desire weight. And Kippu, I have to say that the food in Canada are torturing me every single day. I love ALL of them but they just contain freaking high calories! Like, I ate cookies and pasta one night and the next morning I put on 1kg! Wtf seriously. The food tempt me too much.

healthy food, tiny portions, active lifestyle, pressure from society, stuff like that
it's a lot easier to be thin in Asian countries than places like the U.S

Maybe it's because Asian people don't eat as much fast food as Westerners do, eg: Burger King, McD, fish n chips; you get my point. Besides, it is not true that Western people don't walk to places they wanna go. They do a lot of walking too.

You think people who have to go through winter would bath in cold water? And whoever said that cold showers will not lead to weight loss? O_O

Asians do not care about their image compared to Westerners. o_O In most Asian countries, women don't even bother to use make up. Maybe with the exception of Japan and Korea. Even guys use make up there. On streets.

Chopsticks does help in making you slimmer though.

its the lack of crap in their food try comparing the ingredients between most asian food to western foods plus they are more likely to eat rice as a staple as well as noodles instead of fatty meats they also eat far more fish.

all those reasons reduce how much fat they intake as well as reducing the horrible chemical additives they eat plus most Asian countries have better PE than western countries do which helps burn off the excess they might eat.
