What these experts of Japanese cuisine have in common is they all appear to be in very good shape.
But this observation shouldn't be a surprise. By and large, the Japanese are known for being thin and healthy but did you also know that Japanese women live to be an astonishing 87 years-of-age on average?

When looking for the reasons why some people are thin/healthy, and others are overweight/unhealthy, the simple answer often given is that this is determined by how much one eats. However, it's both interesting and perplexing when you realize that the healthy Japanese aren't on calorie-counting diets nor are they hitting the gym to burn off calories to slim down, either. In fact to the contrary, they are somehow able to be slender while eating, and eating well. This includes enjoying a big bowl of white rice known as gohan in Japan, that is a staple of every Japanese meal.

If you plan on incorporating Japanese food into your daily eating habits, this could become rather cost-consuming unless you decide to make your own homemade meals. Thankfully there are many very highly rated Japanese cookbooks available, some authored by the experts mentioned at the beginning of this article, that could be just what you need to get started. The following are brief introductions to these acclaimed experts of Japanese cuisine.

Elizabeth Andoh has lived in Japan since 1967. An author of many types of Japanese cookbooks, she's a graduate of the Yanagihara School of Classical Japanese Cuisine and works as an instructor at culinary arts programs in Tokyo, Japan. At these programs she shows participants how they can prepare authentic Japanese cuisine for themselves. Her extensive selection of Japanese cookbooks are available on Amazon

In addition to being an author Sonoko Sakai is also a cooking teacher, offering her Japanese culinary skills to cooking workshops all around the United States and overseas. Sonoko Sakai is based in Los Angeles and Tehachapi, CA. Currently available on Amazon is her cookbook: Japanese Home Cooking Simple Meals Authentic Flavors

Famous Japanese chef Masaharu Morimoto is an Iron Chef on the Japanese TV cooking show Iron Chef, and Iron Chef America where he displays his own unique style of presenting food. Born in Hiroshima, Japan, Morimoto released his first cookbook in 2007, with two more popular Japanese cookbooks released in 2014 and 2016. Morimoto has a self-titled restaurant at the Hotel Camino Real Polanco, in Mexico City, Mexico. All three of his cookbooks are found on Amazon.

Maori Murota was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan. At the age of seventeen she left Japan and moved to New York City. She is currently a private chef and instructs classes on authentic Japanese home cooking. Amazon carries Maori Murota's highly rated cookbook
The mystery of exactly how the Japanese can be slim without dieting could finally be unraveling. It's been discovered that there is some kind of food synergy at work here; in other words, the types of foods eaten by the Japanese are working together to create this fat burning reality.

Someone who has studied the actual science behind female Japanese health and longevity is Carly Donovan, the creator of the Cinderalla Solution weight loss program.

She offers her program for $37, which includes guidance on choosing the best foods and flavors to combine in order to achieve the best weight loss results. You can watch her weight loss story with an option to purchase Cinderella Solution by clicking here.

The fact that the Japanese people regularly consume foods high in carbohydrates such as white rice, yet still remain slim is a fascinating realization. Who could have believed that one way to lose weight plus improve your overall health & chances of living a longer life is by eating plenty of good food, not less!

In closing, if you are satisfied with your current health status, your hopes for longevity, and look forward to exercising when it comes time to cutting down the pounds, going the Japanese food route might not be very appealing. But, if you know someone who isn't as enthusiastic about the gym for getting in shape, perhaps they could benefit from the knowledge presented in this article so please feel free to share.
