5 Health Tips We Should Take from the Japanese


The Japanese are renowned throughout the world for their amazing culinary fare and healthy lifestyles, they are the masters of creating delicious and healthy cuisine that is now being shared across London. Sushi delivery has seen something of an increase in popularity in London, this is because more people are paying more attention to their diets and want to try healthy food that has many health benefits.

The diet and the lifestyle of the Japanese people has always been something of a mystery in London and the prevalence of sushi takeaway in central London has only served to heighten our fascination.

Before you start snacking on your sushi delivery, here are five health tips that we all should take from the Japanese.

  1.    Eat Raw


Everyone has heard of the ‘clean eating’ craze that is sweeping the nation, but there is more truth to this than meets the eye. The Japanese have been eating a raw diet for centuries, which is why they tend to live longer, happier and healthier lifestyles. Eating raw is one of the best ways to lose weight and keep your heart healthy and sushi is designed to eat raw. This is one of the easiest ways to keep your ticker healthy, eat more sushi and raw fish that are rich in omega-3 goodness.

  1.    Eat Slowly


Eating slowly is not only a graceful art that should be adopted from the Japanese people, but it will also make you feel fuller, more quickly. If you are looking at maximising your health and looking to lose weight too, this can be a great way to do this. While your sushi delivery may be scrumptious, do as the Japanese would do and eat slowly for maximum enjoyment; savour the flavour of every bite of your sushi takeaway, this is the Japanese way after all.

  1.    Drink Green Tea


Drinking more green teas is one of the best ways to live more enriched and healthier lifestyles. The people of Japan swear by green tea, and let’s face it, if it is good enough for them it is good enough for us here in London.

  1.    Portion Control


Snacking little and often, in smaller portions is a great way to lose weight and to make sure that you are not overeating. Portion control is something that has been mastered in Japan, but not quite here in London. You don’t have that your sushi delivery will contain too much food; there will be enough to make sure that you are full and happy.

  1.    Healthier Food Choices


Sushi is the obvious healthy food choice. Mrs Okawa is a 116 year old Japanese woman who accredits her longevity to sushi. She insists on eating delicious mackerel sushi at least once per month. There is no secret to living long and healthy lives, you should eat the right foods and not overindulged on the bad ones. The best thing about sushi is that you can overindulge on takeaway and not be riddled with guilt that you are going overboard on calories. Enjoy good, wholesome sushi delivery in London and live a happier, better life all round.
