Why are Japanese not obese?


Japanese food can make you thin, but are there other reasons for Japanese thinness?  Do Japanese people exercise more than Americans and Canadians?


It doesn’t appear so.  Americans, with higher obesity rates, exercise more than others in North America and Europe.  As for Canadians, according to Statistics Canada, 48% lack the proper amount of exercise in daily life.   And Japan?  Wow!   69.5% of Japanese people lack exercise.    



Exercise has immense benefits for every aspect of our lives, and is indispensable for maintaining reduced weight after a diet regimen.  However, there is no direct correlation between obesity and exercise on the basis of scientific research.  We can’t simply say that exercise is a cure for obesity.


So, is a Japanese diet a likely factor of Japanese skinniness?
