  • 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

  • I am 5’8.5″ tall and I am Japanese, weighing 110 pounds.I’m not gaining weight, what should I do?I often eat sushi, natto (fermented soybeans), miso soup and white rice.

  • Exactly! Totally correct… I agree. Also: Hara Hachi Bun Me; eating only until you’re 80% full.

    Japanese philosophy is also about eating while using all of your senses and appreciating every little thing in connection to the food.
    Meaning: having a deep appreciation and thankfulness for the whole process that has gone into making the meal; form start to finish, having respect for each of the things in the process. This is also done by saying “Itadakimasu”.

  • I never understood why people eat salads for meals.. it’s not supposed to be the main course. It’s supposed to be a snack or something quick to eat whilst you’re waiting for your actual meal. It’s low in calories but can fill you up in a pinch. However it won’t last long.

  • AHHH BEETROOT IN SOUP YES! My grandmother made a chicken beetroot soup a few years ago, and my sister and I still talk about it sometimes! But all the chicken beetroot soup recipes online are borscht….. D:

  • I am currently living in Japan.. I don’t eat so much Japanese food because I am Filipina. I eat a lot as in a lot. what made me slim is my work.. We should work work work like a robot in Japan. everyone works fast and efficient here so that’s why people are thin. Work is our boyfriend/girlfriend here. and not all Japanese people are eating small my Japanese workmates eats a lot and they are slim as well. They drink a lot of soda as well everyday..

  • I know people who go super overboard on protein powder. I can’t seem to get people to understand that too much protein can wreak havoc on the kidneys, but also excess protein will be broken down into sugar.

  • はい、そうです。Hai, sō desu.Yes, that’s right.1 EXAMPLE ▾野菜yasaivegetables1 EXAMPLE ▾日本のNihon noJapanese (item, thing)1 EXAMPLE ▾お菓子o-kashisweets, snacks, candy1 EXAMPLE ▾これkorethis1 EXAMPLE ▾魚sakanafish1 EXAMPLE ▾ようかんyōkansoft sweet red bean jelly1 EXAMPLE ▾日本NihonJapan5 EXAMPLES ▾肉nikumeat

  • Bright Side: No snacking
    No One:
    Literally No One:

    ShinChan every time he goes to a store with his mum: MOM CHOCCO CHIPS MOM CHOCCO CHIPS!

  • Again mistakes by Bright Side, false information…Australia has small portion sizes…I’ve lived in USA, Japan, Australia and China….Australian portions are small

  • Just FYI. Asian Americans have a life expectancy of 86.3 years, which is even higher than the Japanese (85.03 years). Life style is certainly the most crucial factor. Meanwhile, is genetic difference also plays a role here?

  • Respect respect respect respect respect respect to foods is heaven on earth love love love love love love love love love love love from Kenya

  • Respect and honour his soul journey from Kenya heaven on earth love love love love love love light from Kenya beautiful beautiful beautiful soul

  • I’m from the Netherlands. I’ve lived in Japan for six years. I never looked and never felt better as I did over there.
    My mom always has hot flares due to menopausal issues.
    When she came to visit me in Japan, they went away and when she was back home, it started again.

  • (as a Russian who gained more than 11-15 kilos or 30-33 pounds for one year in Japan)
    1. Fish is good, but only fish I can afford on a daily basis now is surimi.
    2. Genetics! The first thing I was told to forget about by Russian nutritionist was white rice. It really made me frustrated that I couldn’t eat normal Japanese bento or had to leave the rice… Don’t eat any rice now.
    3. The oil thing is true! (tonkatsu and karaage tho)
    4. Gonna ignore escalators from now xd
    5. Envy those who lose their appetite in summer
    6. In my case, low temperature in the room causes weak blood circulation and swelling
    7. Big plastic bags everyday is kinda zeitaku xd
    8. Moyashi cabbage! Other vegs are zeitaku
    9. Same with white rice
    10. This one is definitely healthy. But neither green tea nor black oolong helped me to lose weight xd
    11. Always using drying machine xd
    12. I’ve got 2-3 plates and two cups, don’t even wash them every day
    13. Not sure about the US, but in Russia food is sold in much bigger portions, but you’re not supposed to eat it all at once.
    14. McDonalds portion sizes must be the same in Russia…
    15. That’s true, not only portions are small (but I guess cakes served in fancy oshare restaurants are small everywhere), the whole cakes are so small and super expensive!

  • 1.) Fish
    2.) White rice
    3.)less oil
    4.) Train
    5.) So hot
    6.) House is cold burns own fat
    7.) Shopping every day
    8.) Eat more vegetables
    9.) Healthy sweets
    10.) Drink Green tea
    11.) No Drying Machines
    12.) No Dishwasher
    13.) Food amount is small
    14.) Fast food is small
    15.) Delicious yet small and filling

  • Living in America the foods and sweets there is insane because in the store the amount of foods sold to us is more than the serving size. Also the fast food places are everywhere, there are less convenient stores than fast food places. Less healthier opinions. Everything has perseveres. Rice here makes us gain weight easily but the worst thing is that we are lazy and wouldn’t exercise like we are supposed to.

  • My culture is based on potatoes I simply do not like rise or pasta, actually I´d rather eat rise, than pasta and also we are the milk and beer culture, I hate the taste of green tea and black tea to me with lemon and honey is what I drink when I am ill. Also I hate the taste of meat and fish specially. It doesn´t help that I am autistic and have problems with new tastes, but I have cut out the brad and pastry and also do all the cooking at home and as I started to study Japanese I also started to eat some of these things and I have bought the special seasoning for rice via ebay not to eat it plain and since than I feel much better. The sugar and things made out of flour were hard to cut out, but the best thing is going cold turkey. So great that fast food is so expensive where I live. I also do not eat fried things.

  • Dr. Mike, what is your take on 0 calorie products such as diet 0, Walden syrup, Aspartame, etc. I would love to know your opinion since these products are surrounded by a lot of controversy.

  • I came back from Japan yesterday. I walked 3-5 hrs each day, took the stairs at train station. Ate Japanese food for 35 days. There servings are smaller than Australia. They do have dishwashers and clothes dryers but their accommodation is very small so most don’t have room for them. They eat vegetables for breakfast lunch & dinner. Using chopsticks slows down food consumption so your stomach says I’m no longer hungry,(if you listen) after all this I lost 1kg!!! That’s right only one!, it’s genetic they are small people. I’m not tall but I was a whole head taller than most (not all) females. In the onsen (public bath) I saw lots of chubby Japanese women my age. We can look fatter being bigger in bone and height but American do eat much too much sugar in their diet and the servings are huge.

  • Japanese lifestyle, they’re used to walk. The subway/metro in Tokyo, the stairs are very high and quite steep for Indonesian like me.
    Compared to Jakarta, the weather is colder.
    They serve food in small portion.
    So, I’ve proven that spending holiday in Japan, you’ll get slimmer. Or at least you won’t gain much weight ��

  • Thank you for the good information, I follow you from Iraq, take a look at our Iraqi food, it contains around 2000 calories per meal! =)

  • I believe everything you said, I lived in Japan for 2 years and it was so awesome and amazing, I miss the food and the shopping for my kids I wish to go back������

  • genetics, genetics, genetics!! fat percentage differs drastically from ethnicity to ethnicity. japanese body fat is lower than many others such as german, polish, italian.

  • I found you through the suggested videos. First your videos are very informative.
    I just made YouTube channel so I’m definitely doing research. Thanks for all your
    help. Please keep it up! Just Subbed!

  • Definitely eating healthy in Japan is easier to do. I lived there for for years and I can attest to that. Thank you for this video

  • Can you tell us how Japanese clean their house and how they keep it clean and what the rules and how do you keep everything organized

  • My diet plan for eating every 2 hours is
    6.00 am wakeup
    6.15 am 200 ml of boiled cumin water
    7.00 am green tea
    9.00 am Indian breakfast idly/upma/dosa/poha/vada/puri / waffles with blueberry jam
    11.00 am lemon water
    1.00 pm 1 chapati with any Indian veg or non-veg curry
    3.00 pm 1 medium glass of buttermilk/ 5 tablespoon curd (since my body is heat body )
    5.00 pm any kind of fruit/ nuts/ greentea/ lemon water
    8.00 pm Suffola masala oats 1 small cup/ 1 chapati
    10.00 pm sleep

    My daily Selfcare:
    8 hours sleep
    3liter of water
    Fitness chloe tings programe
    Meditation for 5 minutes
    no sugar
    no junk food/street food

    Note: If I get a little bit starving in between evening snack and my dinner I mostly eat a small or medium banana
    If you ask why banana? Banana will reduce our food starving and gives instant energy to our body.

    Iam 18 years old.Iam suffering with PCOS from 1 and half year. So I cured them by following 3 days egg diet and after 3 days I started above diet and I cant find my pcos…so its cured…Iam getting regularly

    Hope you guys are safe in quarantine…hope it helps

  • Genetics. A bigger reason.:) I love fish also. Depends on genetics. I really think its nice to watch your food but its life. Love different foods. It’s funny. But I believe some of this is partly true.:)

  • I love you.

    For clarification, what makes Japanese slim are:

    Stairs and not train
    Poor airconditioner
    First world problems like lack dryers and diswashing machine.
    Middle eastern countries are not slim…though its hot…

    These makes me laugh… I do and lacks this things but l’m still fat

  • America is a bit too dependent on cars and fast foods and not too worried about sidewalks and less cars. Maybe if we take out most cars, make places easier to walk to, and cut a large amount of calories off of the food we eat and start making the food ourselfs, we can be how we want to be without too mucb effort.

  • After watching this video many times, I’ve been trying to incorporate more healthy options like you XD also, I know this isn’t related, but I really like that blue shirt XD I want to know where you got it loll keep up the good work <3

  • Ok. It’s a lifestyle that individual’s possessed and adapted. Every human, different lifestyle they lived for. No matter Japan held the title with long expectancy based on a survey, that doesn’t mean they live that longer than any other countries. I don’t believe any of survey without my eyes took a picture out of it and analyze in my mind if it’s true or false or maybe tralse.

  • Could you please do some more weight-loss tips ect! I need to lose weight and I have been cal counting! Could you do a video on more of this topic?

  • I also post what I eat everyday on my instagram stories hope that would give you some meals ideas and tips!

  • Counting calories are driving me nuts! Then I’m over exercising to the point of exhaustion and end up being feeling so starved at midnight!!! I have to eat!

  • I’m blasain and my parents are asking me why I’m more Asian i eve have the accent and I eat Asian food and I said it’s bc of YouTube

  • THANK YOU FOR THIS!! I’m originally from HK too and I never want to sacrifice any good chinese food for the sake of being healthier but this was so nice to watch and relate to!!

  • Im so happy this is a video because all these healthy videos I see are people eating avocado toast and fruit smoothies and protein shakes… and as an asian, I don’t really eat any of this stuff. I was concerned about not being healthy, but I saw this, and it helped me relax more.

  • hi emily just want to. thank you for all the work out youve shared everyday. i feel energetic and your work out always complete my day keep. up. the good work more. subscribers to come. Godbless

  • what a success. very honest. here are some other effective recipes that can even reverse obesity, diabetes, high blood, and other diseases from dr. terry shintani’s peacediet.org or see his videos from http://www.AskDrShintani.com, please see them too!

  • In my case, I eat too much at a time from stress and trauma. I tried the chopsticks…. I certainly couldn’t eat as much! I would love to learn more about Japan and Japanese culture.

  • In Japan, there is the word “Moderate eating keeps the doctor away”. It means moderate eating will not make you sick. We are taught this word by our parents when we are children. That is one of the rational reason. Sorry for my poor English.

  • Your home food looks so healthy and wholesome, at home we have alot of rice with black sesame and very meaty meats with lots of sodiums and good veggies like fermented cabbage with spinach or sweet potato but the meats and rice plus we have lots of big portions makes the foods feel unhealthy

  • Japanese are following the rules of prophet hazrat muhammad (S.A). In islam says that when you eat your you sit down in flat places and not fulfill your stomach. Which people following this rules they aren’t sick.They always expect a healthy life.

  • Actively spoiling food is the most horrible advice I ever head. There’s people out there that go hungry or even die of hunger and you’ll throw perfectly good food away?!?! It’s stupid enough that slightly damaged or short before expiration goods are thrown away at food stores while it’s often still good for days to come (at least here in Germany) are you actually willing to throw away something that you bought from your own hard earned money?

  • So am I the only one who noticed how uncomfortable she looked with that guy when he was getting affectionate…are we just ignoring that?

  • live in asia
