            Not overconsuuming is a factor, look at their plate sizes, also exercise even if its just running or martial arts.

            Sumo requires high weight to compete in, they get a pass because after their sumo time is over they have to literally go to a diet to burn out all the fat to not die early.

      They didnt swap to a western diet and mostly eat their traditional foods + regulation.
      It isnt due to fat shaming like said as their neighboor china also has similar social norms but it is getting fatter by the day, due to people eating more and more industrialized foods + little to no regulation on the fast food chains.

        The "carb-heavy" western diet is full of sugar and heavily processed carbs and unhealthy fats - non-satiating things. You can eat a carb heavy diet that is satiating (like Japan does) and regulate your food intake easier, or you can eat the modern western-diet that encourages you to over-consume food that your body stores as fat by more mechanisms than just calories in > calories out

      I think their diets contain a great deal more variety and protein than people give them credit for. Seafood (big one), pork, tofu, beef, it gets you good and full.
      The metabo tax, customs of straight-up calling other people fat, and the social stigma against fat people is certainly also part of it.
      I believe that car culture/commuting, or lack thereof, also helps. Even if it's not much, the steps you clock in if you walk to and from the train station or however you get to and from work are free exercise.

      Portion sizes do help, but what impresses me the most about Italy whenever I go there is the way they take care of their culture and language.
      I've seen Italian kids turn down soda pop for orange juice, I've not seen anywhere near as many Burger King/Macdonalds eateries as I see at home, and even the service stations serve good meat and cheese on good (if a smidge stale) bread.
      That their food culture is so endlessly much richer than "nothing but pizza and pasta" is also something to address. Personally I'm partial to the seafood there, big sucker for swordfish and squid and cuttlefish, me.

      also drive-thru culture in America probably massively contributes to overconsumption. It's easier to buy 1000cals worth of fast food if you can eat in the car rather than having to endure the shame of eating it in public or carrying it on the local train. I wonder if we could get a city to try and test food portion restrictions and see how that would affect obesity

    Japs are far more dependent on public transport, which means they do a hell of a lot more walking than your average mart sharter.

      Also it's actually shameful to be fat there. If you show up heavier to work your coworkers and friends will literally say "you've but on weight" or "I see you've gotten a little fat". They will call you fat to your face so people stay skinny to avoid this.

      >I suspect it's because they autistically follow tradition
      I agree. Part of this is they don't snack as much. It's uncommon to eat outside of meal time in Japan when at work. At a lot of american offices, people snack on shit all day but in japan many people only eat during meal times
      That said obesity/being overweight is on the rise there
