If you were at Tokyo's Narita Airport, the obesity rate would be 3.5%.

Fast food there is a bento box.

I'm glad you brought up the French. They consume lot of dairy and meat fat, yet have a lower incidence of cardiac death than the US. Thirty years ago it was fashionable to believe it was red wine but that's not it.

So we can keep on believing that the problem is dietary fat instead of sugar, because that's what's always been done, which is pretty much the way Tomlin mentally approaches halftime adjustments and run-pass-kick.

Thought I’d give a field report.

Currently sitting among the sans culottes in the train station below Charles de Gaulle Airport. There are some fat motherfuckers speaking French. Not as fat as the people speaking American English, though.

Still Lit out.

Thanks for the amusing report, Lit! And stay cool.

Yes, but not mountain dew, monster energy drinks, fruit roll ups, chicken nuggets, or kool-aid.

Following up:

1. There are no fat people in Grenoble.
2. Everyone is disturbingly good looking.
3. The creme brûlée is not disgustingly sweet like it is in the US.
4. Unbelievably, loads of French still smoke, which is border line submental.
5. I thanked every French person I could for his /her hatred of the British on the Fourth of July. And every single one loved me for it.
6. Hiking in the French Alps is one of the most joyful things I have ever done.

Currently en route back to Paris on a bullet train which, IMO, is 10x more pleasant than taking a plane. Then again, France is only the size of Texas.

Lit out.

First off, Nutrition. What are you eating and how much?
Of course the proper diet [eating habits] is a must if you require certain results. You can work out hard every day and burn lots of calories while building muscle. If you're past 40 and you're still eating like you're 18 you will not lose much body fat. You have to be cognizant of what you are eating and how much you are eating at anyone time. No processed foods. Cut back on all sugar. Keep sodium at a minimal. Drink lots of filtered mineral water in addition to just filtered water. Water is the secret. If you drink a lot of water already good. Filtered water alone doesn't help. In fact it causes more issues. Due to the filtered water cleansing your body of your bodies important minerals. A nice equal or balanced diet including both Keto and Paleo seems to have the highest success rate.


A couple articles that explain why resistance training [weight lifting] is more beneficial than cardio while less strenuous on your joints/bones. A great cardio is to Swim!

France and Japan are (by far) outliers in terms of Cardiovascular disease, so that's really a poor point of comparison.

The US actually ranks below countries like Germany and Greece in terms of heart disease deaths, and isn't even close to eastern-European levels

Diet is only one factor in this discussion. Rates of exercise, smoking, drinking, genetics, etc all play a factor, and each factor is different depending on the individual.

If you want to lose weight/fat, then lay off the junk food and become more active. That's honestly the only thing guaranteed to work.

That's not surprising. The diet of eastern europe consists mostly of fatty meats and lots of alcohol. Draw a line from slovenia to the netherlands and the diet is very different. And then of course there's the fact that density and population is very different than the US.

Europe is a smokers paradise. For sure. They still love it over there.
