As a man who've lived in Japan and enjoyed the real Japanese food, I can say proudly that it is one of the best food in the world with rich history. It's less oily but you can eat a lot of vegetables, and its calories are really few so good for your diet too. Also go and search "beautiful Japanese food" on Google. I'm pretty sure you'll be amazed at how colourful and attractive they are... Promise! :D

If you think you can eat only raw sushi and vegetables at Japanese restaurant, you've been to the wrong one for sure... Aw poor you :( The real ones are made with so much cares and take a long time to cook. Seriously, be careful to the ones that are ran by non-Japanese people with no previous working experience at restaurant in Japan at all... It's totally different from the original... eww disgusting... (even if the restaurant people looks like Asian, they may not be from Japan but like Korea or China... I know it's hard to tell.. )

Indian food is not healthy at all. Indians eat too much spicy food, too much mutton meat, too much ghee, and high sugar level food. India has one of the highest rate diabetes, high blood pressure, and coronary heart disease. Plus, India's life expectancy is merely 65 years old, on par with Russia.

India's food is the best. Indians have got their racipies from many cultures. Altough I'm from USA but I have visited many countries and my soul just say that there is nothing like INDIA. Their culture, people, food, places soothes the soul.

Indian food is a well balanced food. The varieties and ingredients have been meticulously chosen over thousands of years for their flavor, nourishment, energy, health influence and taste and nutrient requirements and so on.

Base of French food are vegetables, rices, grain, fishes. Meat, sauces, fries are also part of French food but only eaten in certain occasions and only for a certain part of people. It's usual in France to eat for lunch only a large mixed salad and fruit for lunch and a vegetable soup, rice (or similar) and fruit for diner.

Lotek is best

Thailand Thailand, officially the Kingdom of Thailand, formerly known as Siam, is a country at the centre of the Indochinese peninsula in Mainland Southeast Asia.

We have fresh food growing in our country and fresh ingredient in our backyard. We buy fresh food from the market each day from local growing. We love eat fresh fish from fish farm and fresh meat from butcher each day. We cook food each day and Thai people do not like keep their food in the freezer and eating fresh food daily.

A lot of Herbs and vegetables. Good taste and good look.

Yum n healthy

I think thai food overall is healthy. a lot of its dishes has coconut milk that is high in fat but good fat. there is a lot of herbs and seafood that thais utilize. it is not a meat -potato heavy cuisine. if you ever tried making thai food the ingredients usually is a page long sometimes even longer. it consist of ingredients that I [westerners] cease to know existed with so much history. all of this combined perfectly to have a balance flavor. wish I can move to thailand even if its for a year and learn how to cook

Vietnam Vietnam, officially the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia.

Vegetables with EVERYTHING! So healthy but so DELICIOUS!

It should rank higher than this. Not many other cuisines on this list have successfully minimised their dependence on oil usage or maintained the fine balance between freshness of herbs and spices with the meat components than Vietnamese.

How is france higher than this? Nearly everything is fresh, no frying, no lactose, light portions. The list goes on and on. This should be number 1

A balance between meat and veggie greens, healthy!

South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula.

Korean kimchi and other brewed food are very healthy. They have lots of vitamin and minerals and protein and everything, I assured you. They may be seen as a bit disgusting or unusual food to other countries and Western people, but it is scientifically proved that Korean food is tasty and good for your health. They can be salty, yes, I do admit that, but other nutrients backs up that flaw, so it is okay. We also use lots of vegetables, unlike Japan, which uses lots of fish and China, which uses lots of meats like pork and gammon.

Korean food history is more than three thousand years and it has developed into good, better ways. If you start eating Korean food, at first, you might feel gross and stuff, but if you keep eating, it will be quite addictive.

I'm Korean and I'll admit, a lot of salt goes in our food, however, our food includes so much vegetables. Practically every meal will include eating leafy greens, beans, roots, peppers, spices, and more.

Korean food and kimchi are very delicious and healthy.

The least healthy Korean food (ramen) has vegetables in it. Spicy doesn't mean unhealthy.

Italian cuisine in reality has a lot of dishes outside pizza and pasta like Artichokes,

Italian food is easy to make. Italian food uses farm grown ingredients that are grown with out any use of antibiotics or preservatives. Not only that but the food tastes truly spectacular.

The well known Mediterranean diet and the use of simple, fresh and unprocessed ingredients, makes this cuisine easily the healthiest in the world. Italy has one of the highest life expectancy in the world, the healthy cuisine being the top factor.

Who said Mediterranean diet?

Italy is alarming on new figures show that it has a higher proportion of overweight children than anywhere in Europe.

Obesity rates in Italy two-year-olds are the highest in Europe with a rate of 42%.

Italy should be at the end of this list or even out of.

Bye bye Italy.

Greek food isn't just the junky version of Souvlaki and Gyro, is the Feta, Salad, Tzatziki, Kotopoulo etc

Spain Spain, officially the Kingdom of Spain, is a sovereign state largely located on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe, with archipelagos in the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, and several small territories on and near the north African coast.

This is the same situation as Singapore...

Filipino food can offer so many tropical fruits and vegetables no one has heard of outside of the country. Homemade filipino food really beats restaurant food, however.

It has delicious healthy foods fruits and vegetables so hope ya like it!

From all the raw fruits and stuff, Philippine food is good for health. Needs to be in top 5!
