in today’s video i’m talking about something i call the japanese diet, inspired by a book from 1889 called “a japanese boy” by shukichi shigemi ( that i read years ago ). when describing the japanese culture to americans, shigemi writes about how parents are encouraging their kids to eat a healthy diet. basically kids got told to eat 30 different things per day, and 100 things per week. sounds like a lot, right ? and that’s where the idea of the japanese diet comes in. i was so intrigued by this old school variety concept that i decided to put myself to the test. check it out !

would you guys try this little experiment ? also, if you’re from japan, tell me if you ever heard of this 30 per day, 100 per week diet ? is it something your parents ever taught you ? maybe it’s a thing of the past – i mean the book was written in the 19th century after all…

i’m very curious about what parents tell their children to eat in every country, so hit me with your best diet tips in the comments !

    The vid looks awesome and you look awesome! Love learning about other cultures diets! Growing up Filipino, I ate vegetables that my American friends never did! Foods like taro, mung beans, bok choy and okra were a staple in my diet! Iโ€™m definitely going to try counting the different ingredients I have this week!

  6. Angel Offei-okyne on December 12, 2021 at 5:58 pm

    Hey everyone ! I hope your morning/day/afternoon/night is going really well although this is not related , Jesus really ADORES YOU ! God created us to be with him but our sins seperated us from God ๐Ÿ˜” and our sins cannot be removed by good deeds( for example : giving to the poor) without the sacrifice of Jesus we would be all going to hell ๐Ÿค• AND SO!.. Paying the price for sin , Jesus died on the cross and rose again and now everyone who believes in him has eternal life ( John 3:16: For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.)

    If you declare with your mouth, โ€œJesus is Lord,โ€ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. – Romans 10 :9
    We must repent from our sins ( turn away from it ) and follow Jesus (Then he said to them all: โ€œWhoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me – Luke 9:23)
    However i’m not forcing it on you it is your choice and Jesus loves you regardless he died for you knowing that you might not ever want him He IS TRUE LOVE ๐Ÿ’“
    BUT! you must know that: For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it. Luke 9:24
    Losing your life for Jesus is worth it , Trust God he’s got your back ๐Ÿ’“
    May God bless you and reveal himself to you in Jesus’ name Amen Have a blessed and prosperous year everyone ๐Ÿ’“

  10. The Shรถcker Pit on December 12, 2021 at 6:06 pm

    See hereโ€™s the thing Japanese people eat more food because Americans they eat food products when Iโ€™ve seen the American diet isnโ€™t really conserve nutritional

  11. ThinkingMakesSense on December 12, 2021 at 6:06 pm

  13. John C on December 12, 2021 at 6:09 pm

    A diverse diet is definitely wise. The Japanese ashiyu tradition is very healthy too. Our new foot spas are inspired by the Japanese original.

  37. Hrituparna Deb on December 12, 2021 at 6:34 pm

    Hi Jenny! Lots of love from India!
    Whether the idea is back dated or not i loved the idea of having different foods for each meals!! It will lest help in trying different types of food and get good benefit from it! On a second thought trying different things will break the monotony and will encourage us to make different new combination of food to try!!! I m going to follow it.. let see how it works!!

  38. J K on December 12, 2021 at 6:34 pm

    Yes, as other have said, we are told that we should eat 30 ingredients per day ๐Ÿ™‚ And I m pretty sure that my siblings are going to tell their kids too โ™ก

  39. fluffy 15 on December 12, 2021 at 6:35 pm

    I’m on a diet and I need this Japanese diet so bad!!!!!

  43. Melissa P on December 12, 2021 at 6:40 pm

    I grew up in Japan and the last time I was there was 2005 so this isn’t current. What I noticed is the diet in the city is very different than in the country. When I ate at my grandmother’s house in the country it was very varied and whole foods were prevalent. I lived in Hiroshima tho and food was often processed and lacked diversity. Sounds like a great book tho and a great way to eat. Love your channel btw.

  49. sha shazan ali on December 12, 2021 at 6:48 pm

    Why cant we just have a revolution and rid of all those multinationals who poison us with sugar and awful food and implement all Japanese companies to trade food on earth, this way we can all have a Japanese diet and less pain in life and live good long lives

  50. God Hades on December 12, 2021 at 6:48 pm
