  • 10 REASONS Why Asians Don't Get FAT

Transcription

Did you know? Asians don't get fat There may be some exceptions Ok, this video is on 10 reasons why Asians don't get fat Now of course, there are Asians who are fat or chubby Some might in fact be watching this video right now wondering 'Why have my Asian genes failed me?!' So, yes, Asians don't get fat, it's a bit of a generalized statement or stereotype but as a whole, there's definitely some truth to it And we'll get into why that is in this video If you look at this map, you can see the obesity rates of each country The red to orange countries have very high obesity rates 25 to 40+% of the population is obese With the U.S. as well as the Pacific Island nations topping the list The blue to green countries have low obesity rates About 0 to 10% of the population is obese We know why many of the African countries come under this Malnutrition and starvation is rampant but if you look at the Asian countries, most of which have a much higher standard of living what could be the reasons? I should point out that as a whole in Asia, especially East Asia, obesity rates are increasing and in some countries like China it's starting to get quite worrying So if we were to look at this map a decade or so ago many of these Asian countries would have had an even lower obesity rate Genetics is an obvious factor so I'm gonna leave that one off the list but it's really not even that it's not necessarily because of one's genes There are so many other factors and I'm gonna get into 10 of them right now So, let's do this 1. Fish & Seafood Asians eat a lot of seafood, they eat a lot of fish They love fish! No.... not what I meant Aside from the protein and nutrients, the biggest benefit to eating fish, I'm sure you've heard is the omega-3 fatty acids Fish gives our body and brain the DHA and EPA it needs EPA in particular has been shown to prevent obesity, or at least assist in weight loss Studies from 'The American Journal of Nutrition' suggest that 1.5 to 2 grams daily of fish oil can produce weight loss of a couple of pounds over a period of a month Fish oil increases fat metabolism in the body and this enhances weight loss Everywhere in the world, fish has always been part of man's diet, not just in Asia but Asian culture, especially Japanese culture has kept this part of their heritage alive better than most 2. Cooking Methods Everything tastes better deep-fried *Butter* and it's popular world wide, including Asia But I'm sure I don't need to mention how an excess of oily deep-fried foods can affect your health and weight If you compare Western and Asian eating habits, sure they both consume deep fried foods but Asian countries vary their cooking methods a lot more There's a lot less deep-frying and a lot more boiling, for example Some of you may think, well that can't be true the Chinese food I eat is usually deep-fried before, you know, being coated in some sort of a sweet sauce Well, that's probably Chinese-American food you're used to Chinese food in America, and in many other Western countries is more skewed towards the deep-fried, simply because it sells better Chinese food in China is a lot more varied In fact, deep fried and battered foods hasn't really taken off there Although, contrast this with Japan, a country with a great reputation for health and wellbeing they have a lot of deep fried dishes, like tempura tonkatsu chicken karaage that one's my favourite It just goes to show that if you practice balance you can still have the good stuff 3. Food Perception How people see and experience food can be different depending on where you are In America, for example, food is seen more as entertainment There is a desire, there is joy and anticipation associated with eating It's a pleasurable event Not that it isn't in Asian countries, but it's a lot more toned down usually Eating has more of a practical feel, and in many cases closer to being a chore rather than entertainment That feeling of exhilaration associated with eating is much more a Western thing "Then we sprinkle on four kinds of sugar..." 4. Portion Size Another difference in eating habits is portion size Asians eat smaller portions Food is often served in small serving bowls and small plates and this helps regulate how much is consumed in one sitting And despite the smaller portions, often the case there is a wider variety on offer, so there is more to choose from as well Now if we take a look at America "Yeah, could I get the double quarter pounder with cheese meal." "Large or supersize?" "I think I'm gonna have to go supersize!" 5. Leafy Greens Asian portion size in general might be smaller but their vegetable portion size is consistently larger especially for leafy greens Yeah in western society, you're always reminded that: "you have to eat your greens" it's good for you and all that but in Asia the difference is... they don't even need to be reminded They don't even need to be coerced, it's just ingrained And it doesn't hurt that Asian vegetable dishes are often packed with flavor and taste I just spat at the camera Contrast that with many Western vegetable dishes, and I'm sorry to say they can be pretty bland "Would you like some mixed vegetables?" "Hell no" *gasp* 6. Drink Habits It is a common belief that drinking water, especially cold water, with your meal is a habit that one should avoid as it dilutes your digestive enzymes, your stomach acid and makes it harder for your stomach to digest food "You alright?" Americans often drink cold water or sodas with their meals not so much for Asian people however Rather they drink green tea or other hot teas before or after a meal Now, I should note that many experts say that this is greatly exaggerated and that you can drink water, even cold water, with your meals So, this can be quite confusing But not everyone reacts the same way, and perhaps minimizing or eliminating your drinks may lead to better digestion for some individuals If you're someone who enjoys drinking water with your meals, that's ok too there's research enough to support you in this practice Either way, one thing's for certain, the Asian habit of drinking hot teas, green tea and such as opposed to say Western teas, with their sugar and milk is good for your digestion It's loaded with antioxidants, lowers blood pressure levels and can act as a metabolism booster Quite effective in both the prevention and reduction of weight gain 7. Population Density Now this one's not so obvious Many Asian countries, well Asian cities, are densely populated There are lots of people living in small houses or small apartments and everything you need is often just round the corner There's just a much shorter walking distance Add to that many of these cities have extremely efficient and reliable transportation systems leading one to possibly conclude that many Asian people must exert LESS energy in their daily lives than their Western counterparts where everything is just more spread out So, surely this is one reason why Asians SHOULD be fatter But, not quite In actuality, Asian people in this circumstance may end up walking more This is because with everything being in close proximity they're more inclined to just walk to their destination whereas in many Western countries, distances are often too great so they end up taking some form of transportation, encouraging less physical exertion "born to be wild" 8. Fermented Foods So Asians consume more fermented foods Such as miso, natto, tempeh, kimchi, kombucha just to name a few and this is not just good for your gut health but helps reduce the overall inflammation in the body And inflammation is a contributing factor to weight gain and obesity Those probiotic pills that people take, they work the same way Unfortunately in many Western countries, but not all their food culture does not include much of any fermented foods But times are changing, and people are more aware now of the positive affects They are eating more fermented foods and for most people, it also tastes good "Natto is a traditional Japanese food made from fermented soybeans" That one might take some getting used to 9. Snacks & Desserts This one's quite simple Asian snacks, healthy Western snacks.... nah Asian snacks and desserts may be rice cakes red beans, seaweed snacks nuts, seeds fruit, a lot of fruit For Western snacks and desserts, you know cookies, chips ice cream, sugary cakes all that good stuff but oh so bad for you 10. Prevention vs Treatment When it comes to health, fitness and wellbeing Asians practice prevention, while others practice treatment If you deal with a problem before it even gets started, you don't need to treat it With the Western approach, you have your antibiotics, antacids, NSAIDs quick temporary remedies, that might actually hurt you in the long run The Asian approach attempts to get to the root of the problem using nutrition, healthy habits, prevention practices There's meditation, martial arts and other calming daily rituals that clear your mind all to strike a balance between, I guess, yin and yang And yeah, some of these methods may be a bit hokey, or maybe not but here I'm talking more about the general societal mindset how they think and react to issues of wellness 'Health is not simply the absence of sickness' So, prevention vs treatment, you don't need to lose the weight if you're never fat The Chinese might get a lot of things right when it comes to health and beauty but I'm not so sure that's demonstrated in this video Click on top to watch 5 Weird Chinese Beauty Trends on Social Media or you can click the one below if you prefer something else Please give this video a thumbs up if you enjoyed it and if this is your first time watching us, we'd love to have you subscribe because this channel is all about interesting ASIANY topics And I'm speaking really fast because YouTube's new end slate design only lasts 20 seconds max and I don't wanna be cu...
