Want to be Healthy and Live Longer? Take Cues from Japan

(ARA) – Japan has the lowest obesity rate in the developed world – 3 percent versus 32 percent in the United States, according to the International Obesity Taskforce. Many believe the good overall health and long life span of the Japanese is due to their diet.

Dr. Mark Drucker offers these ideas for enjoying the benefits of the Japanese diet at home:

1. Try cultural cuisine

Sushi, a Japanese diet staple, is popular throughout the United States. Many grocery stores now carry pre-made sushi you can buy and snack on at home. Another fun way to enjoy sushi is to make it yourself. Try having a sushi rolling party with your friends as a fun way to eat healthy and learn about another culture.

2. Eat fresh veggies every day

Eating more fresh vegetables, raw when possible, is a great way to get many of the health benefits enjoyed by the Japanese people. A general rule is to eat a wide range of color in vegetables.

3. Consider a healthy, detoxifying supplement

Supplementing your diet with powerful green whole foods can provide a great alternative to fresh vegetables. Much like how Americans regularly take a vitamin C supplement, many Japanese take a supplement called Sun Chlorella to utilize the superfood benefits of chlorella, an ancient alga with powerful health benefits.
