Asian Diet

 Bored of eating same food every day? Want some change in food taste? Try Asian Diet. The Asian diet is an ancient and honored way of eating. For decades people of the Asian world have eaten a diet based on plant foods such as rice, cereals, wheat, vegetables, and fresh fruits. Unlike Western diets, meat is rarely the main dish of any meal but rather an accent and flavour compliment. Fish is often eaten in main courses. This diet limits fat in general and almost eliminates saturated fat.

There are three major types of Asian diets:

East Asian Food includes China, Japan, and Korea. Rice: Low in fat reduces risk for heart diseases and certain cancers, Fish: Low in sugar, Cereals: Low in fat, Vegetables: Low in sugar, fruits and tea.

Southeast Asian Food includes Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, and Singapore. Rice and vegetables with meat and fish. Fruits: bananas, mangoes, papayas, coconut, and pineapple. Deserts prepared from coconut milk, green noodles, sugar syrup, and sweet beans.

Southern Asian Food includes Pakistan, India and Bangladesh. Beef, Chicken, Rice, fish, cereals, wheat and vegetables are the primary dietary intakes. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits are in abundance. Deserts prepared from milk, sweet, sugar syrups are also there.

Asian diet is not calculated and does not include exact portion sizes, but rather guidelines for what should be eaten daily, weekly, and monthly. Rather than prohibitions, the diet suggests balance. The daily calorie content is approximately 1200 to 1400. Fruits and vegetables also provide fiber. Many researchers have shown that sufficient amounts of fiber in the diet may reduce the risk of several forms of cancer including colon cancer, which is the third most prevalent cancer among both men and women in the United States.

It is an exceptionally healthful diet. Asian populations who have access to a sufficient variety of traditional foods are the healthiest and longest lived people on Earth. Several chronic illnesses that plague Western cultures such as heart disease, cancer, and obesity occur rarely in Asian cultures.
