Japanese diet must be the healthiest diet, so we can learn from them. According to The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). OBESITY UPDATE 2017, it shows that Japanese has the lowest obesity rate which is 3.7 percent. Thus Japanese must have healthy eating habits. Since I am Japanese, I usually eat Japanese cuisine called “washoku” which is basically composed by rice, fish, some vegetables and miso soup. According to a survey 80 percent of Japanese people use fast food chain restaurant less than once per week.

I realized that since we Japanese still have the longest average life span, I have to give up eating burgers and go back to eating traditional Japanese cuisine which is vegetables and fish based meal.
