One Solution to Obesity – Thin Slices of Meat

The Japanese diet is well known for its abundance of fish, but many Japanese have a love for red meat as well.  Instead of hamburgers or steaks, though, we usually eat beef and pork cut up into very thin slices.

Here are just a couple popular dishes:

Sukiyaki: a Japanese hot pot.  Add super thin slices of beef with tofu and veggies, and boil in a soup made of soy sauce, cooking sake, and mirin.  A perfect meal for the winter months.

Pork and ginger: thin slices of pork cooked with grated ginger, some soy sauce, cooking sake, and mirin.

A mere 100-150 grams (roughly 4 to 5 ounces) with some veggies and carbs is enough to fill most people up.  With so many slices you feel you’re getting your money’s worth too.  Maybe this is one solution to the obesity epidemic in the U.S.?
