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.. )

I suppose their food is healthy and longer life spans to other countries...
but in my opinion don't go to Japan and find a restaurant that serves "fugu"
"Poison, poison, tasty fish"

As much as I like French and Mexican food, I got to say that Japanese (which yes, I do adore too) is amazing. Japanese, Chinese, and South Korean people do NOT eat dogs. Out of the three cultures, Japanese is the best. sushi, dumplings, summer rolls, and more!

Japanese food is really healthy because of the way they cook it, steaming

And you should know that France has the highest level of veterinary and fraud controls in restaurants and food producers, for that reason each time there is a fraud, it's largely broadcast from the media as part of the transparency required by the public authorities.

Red wine and lots of vegetables are part of the diet.
Healthy food in term of quality and high level of controls.

In some part in North of France too much fat is used, that's true.
But things are changing from bad fat like palm oil to more excellent oil like canola (rapeseed) oil.
Lots of different rices, vegetables, fruits, fishes, meats and all that nicely cooked.
Each region has its different main own dishes.
And France is the country of bread and not only baguette but more than thousand of different breads, and also croissants, eclair, macron etc...

Health results also from pleasure of eating.

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. They lot also lots of cereals like Americans (and from same US trade marks). Really good and healthy, the king for Atlantic fishes including the famous blue Lobster.

France has the highest level of veterinary and fraud controls in restaurants and food producers, for that reason each time there is a fraud, it's mediatically broadcast as part of the transparency required by the public authorities.

Most people who say against Indian food being healthy probably have never been to India. They only go to the Americanized restaurants serving only butter chicken. To experience real Indian food, you must try homecooked food.

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.

Indian is not only a Gourmet's delight but a good nutritionist's prescription.
It is a science by itself when it comes to a meal preparation, ingredients and accompaniments.

Indian food is well cooked with so many spices which are rich antibiotics and the usage of spices is only known by Indians. they have huge variety of spices which are added to daily food which makes the food digestive and delicious but nowadays in India mostly teens are addicted to fast foods (like Chinese noodles, manchurian) which are greesy foods.

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.

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

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

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

10 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.

13 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 is delicious and healthy even without any meat involved, a lot of vegetarian options, although sometimes there can be too much salt added to foods or msg if going to certain restaurants.

First the food consist of so many appetizers, so I am mostly Little confuse what to eat with what but overall very good experience. Kimchi, Kimbab, Bibimbab and lots of healthy food

I must refute rumor about chinese food Chinese do not eat everything. Only some provinces have the custom of eating wild animals. Many Chinese people eat food, French and Japanese also eat it, but when they eat it, people don't think it's strange, on the contrary, they think it's elegant. Most Chinese don't eat dogs! the people who keep dog is much more than the peop who eat dog, Chinese food is not fast food, but American Chinese food is fast food, and can not taste the taste of Chinese food, very bad, so every time Chinese food is said to be cheap and unhealthy, I am not surprised.

I didn't eat chinese food but I know that they spoil it too much because of the bad stereotype of eating insects and wild animals. In reality, chinese cuisine is very rich and healthy
