Asians have the lowest body fat and least amount of heart problems of any ethnic culture in the world. Bora Gyeong's new audiobook explains why.
In Asians Don't Diet, Gyeong breaks down what Asians eat, how they eat, when they eat, as well as their transportation, work, and scheduling habits. The evidence she presents is rational and makes a good argument for adopting many of the habits of Asians to have a healthier lifestyle.
"There isn't a 'diet culture' in Asia," Gyeong explains. "People just live and do what their family and community around them does. They don't drink soda, like those in western countries. They drink tea. Beef and pork take a back seat to fish and vegetables. Rice is a staple, not pasta. All of this has a huge impact on why Asians are thinner in general and live longer despite other unhealthy habits like smoking which are prevalent in their culture today."
The book presents the care and outlines various techniques that will support a healthy body weight and more energetic lifestyle. Some of the techniques are easy to do: reduce soda consumption and drink more tea, eat rice instead of pasta, eat more fish instead of beef, include more vegetables in the daily diet. Others, like martial arts, require that someone invest money. But in general, the techniques presented in the book are free, healthy, and will reduce an individual's body fat percentage while improving his or her overall health.
