For this reason, most adults, at one time or another, deal with issues of weight loss, nutritional value, and overall health. It’s actually no surprise that various and sundry diet programs have become an important part of popular culture. The Zone Diet is well known, and who hasn’t already read about a low carbohydrate diet? There is even a cookie diet regime.

With our country’s body fat problem so interwoven with our culture, perhaps it’s a good idea to look to other cultures that do not exhibit these problems. It would not be advisable to look for answers in agrarian nations. Certainly, reworking our existing economy around weight-loss and health is just not likely. So, let’s consider other nations with similar economies to ours.

Why not consider Japan? The small island nation is unquestionably a high tech, service oriented economy just like our own. Although, aside from the Sumo Wrestler, the Japanese are not thought of as dealing with a weight issue.

Let us start by checking out the quintessential Japanese food: Sushi. Is sushi healthy? Sushi is made up of small servings of rice (carbs) and fish. Fish is nearly pure protein. Despite the fact that some fish is fatty, most fish isn’t. Low fat fish includes tuna, albacore, halibut, red-snapper, and shellfish.

Although, some sushi may be fattening. Keep away from rolls with mayonnaise or any other elements that include unhealthy fat, along the lines of Philadelphia rolls or tempura rolls. Stay with the straightforward, traditional rolls composed of rice and fish. The smaller the amount of rice, the better.

Could sushi be the secret to Japanese weight control? The food balances reasonable carbs along with a low-fat, high protein fish. Undoubtedly, there are lots of other variables, however eating sushi certainly can’t hurt.
