London – Want a Long and healthy life? Then eating Japanese diet is the most effective way.
A new U.K. study revealed Japanese women diet rich in raw fish and green tea, which helps them to live longer then British women.
Japanese women live to the ripe old age of 86.4 years on average, much more than British women who live to just 82.7 years.
Research by the Office for National statistics found that there could be potential for further increases in life expectancy for women in the UK, if they adopted the lifestyle of their Asian counterparts.
The Japanese diet is rich in wholegrains, vegetables and soy – and Japanese women consume around 25 per cent fewer calories than British women.
They eat on average three servings of fish a week, with smaller, daintier portions.
It is believed that using chopsticks also slows down the eating process, giving the body time to realize what has been consumed, and therefore eat less.
