Why Is It So Easy To Stay Thin In Japan?

This video highlights the difference between the food environment of America and Japan. America’s obesity rate is about 30% (biggest state is 37.7%, smallest 22.3%) whereas Japan’s obesity rate is 3.5%
While there’s other countries on each side of the obesity spectrum, I chose to compare these two because I grew up in America and spent the last 7 years here in Japan. The places that I describe as “reasonably healthy” in Japan aren’t necessarily places I recommend as “optimally healthy” – I’m simply point out that while convenient food in America ranges from very unhealthy to unhealthy, convenient food in Japan ranges from very unhealthy to pretty healthy.
