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 m Japanese chef I know how they are having healthy food

Yeah I really agree that's why they have the longest exxistences of people on earth

Food is delicious but healthy at the same time. There's a reason why Japanese people have some of the longest lifespans you know!

2 India India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world.

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 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.

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.

MOST TASTY! MOST HEALTHY!

3 France France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to ...read more.

In France they eat lots of diverse vegetables, fruits, fishes and meats.
Their meals are really complete even if in certain regions they are still using maybe too much fat (butter or meat). In general they have eat import large amount of food from the whole world (Rices, cereals, Asian food, African food..).
And the ratio of healthy food and oil is increasing (Quinoa, wild rices, canola oil, colza oil, walnut oil...)
The ratio of obesity is one of the lowest among the so-called Western countries.

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. If a case is publicly known it's because of those controls, without any controls or because of corruption those cases are not known. In 2015 exactly 0 death related to food. So be tranquil, no matter at all, and if you find one please do not hesitate to contact our services.

Butter you said? Yes, but not more than elsewhere, and surely better use butter than palm oil (used in all countries), worse than butter but without any vitamins.

4 Korea

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.

Korean food taste digusting! Yeah,it may be healthy but it will be the worst food you ever eat! For taste and flavour, eating it makes me puke! Don't judge, it's my opinion!

5 Thailand 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.

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

6 Vietnam 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!

Hoi An has the best street food in Asia

7 Philippines Philippines The Philippines was established in March 16, 1521 and named in honor of a Spanish King whose name is King Philip of Spain II. It is located at Asia, specifically at Southeast Asia. The capital is Manila. 89% of the people there currently are native, while 11% of people there are foreigners.

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!

We also have lots of veggies in our meals!

Why the flip is America before China? Lots of people in America really do love their country 😑
