Given the slop that is killing us sooner and sooner in the USA is it worth spending a few years in Japan to become healthy?

Given the slop that is killing us sooner and sooner in the USA is it worth spending a few years in Japan to become healthy? I don't work in an office so am thinking of just flying there and living in some small apartment for a year or two in order to regrow my hair, get healthy with their food that lack MSG and GMO and preservatives, and maybe date around. Anyone do this I can't deal with the costs of daily eating in the US and I live in one of the healtheir states, it's still really expensive in San Diego

    >MSG
    just fyi Japs use copious amounts of MSG and sodium in their diets. They also have a terrible drinking culture that's hard to not get pressured into.
    I live here and the food is good, but really only get benefit of that if you cook yourself.

    Also there's no Cal. central valley equivalent in Japan with the minor exception of Okinawa so fruit that's not in season is expensive and imported. They also have very carb heavy (rice) diets.

    Cons aside I will say this, decent food and ingredients are far cheaper here. Even the "slop" i.e kombini (i.e 711) foods while not something you want to subsist on long term are leagues better than what you can find in the states.
    Get to know/visit the local farmers market just like in the states, you usually get far better ingredients and it's cheap as frick.

    I would also look into emulating the Okinawa diet which heavy on fish and also surprisingly pork veggies and sweet potatoes. Those people live long lifespans. Also just being in Japan everything is far more walk able so its not such a Pita where you need to drive everywhere.

    You're legitimately fricking moronic. You know you can go to the market and make your own food with real ingredients, right? But yeah sure go to Japan and eat matsuya every day and get healthier, sport.

      >have to uber to Whole Foods for something properly healthy
      12 dollars min
      >pick out bunch of food
      100/wk if lucky, probably 150ish
      >then have to bring it back
      another 12 dollars
      >now have to store it+pay electricity+take time out of your day to cook
      I dunno but my electric bill is ~200/mo so would add a lot more

      People don't realize how expensive the US is with food, it's a lot to eat healthy

          a lot of zoomers and even zillennials have never driven a car and do not have the legal right to drive. if in 2015 you would've said fully self driving cars would not be all over american roads by 2025 you would've shouted down as a luddite, technophobe, idiot etc., so a lot of these kids never learned.

      I mix it all together and season with garlic powder and a splash of soi sauce. It’s easy to avoid processed food in America and cheaply at that you frickin dingbat.
      >muh just go live in Japan for a few years
      How

      >You're legitimately fricking moronic.
      this. You can literally learn how to eat healthy and cook with good ingredients at home just by taking 5 minutes to browse YouTube or even Instagram. There's plenty of shitty food in the USA but the good food had always been around. Maybe try changing your habits and perspective and get into real physical fitness? Moving to Japan won't change you from being an autist fat lard weeb homosexual.

      take a look at your local populace. Many Mexican immigrants there and they know how to survive and live without outright stuffing their faces like an idiot and wasting their money.

    If you're unhealthy in America you'll be unhealthy in Japan.

    If this is genuinely not bait, why not somewhere like the south of Italy? Nice climate, relatively cheap, beautiful scenery - and superb local produce.

    The Mediterranean diet is pretty healthy, and the food culture is top tier. Earing al fresco with family / friends, versus hunching over some watery bowl of noodles all alone.

    Besides, you could meet a nice Italian girl and maybe even get caught up in a little organised crime, if you play your cards right.

      its also the food, if you live in America you realize just how terrible it is.

      Its not that America has bad unhealthy food or Japan for example has the best healthy food. Its that's you have limited options in the states for healthy food. Everything is ultra processed, and fresh food is found only in expensive grocery stores or you have to go to a farmers market.
      The cheap options for food are terrible, combine that fact with no walking and you have American obesity.

      I use the Japanese kombini as an example. Sure its slop and I won't pretend it isn't but even that slop is still better than the slop the average Joe gets stateside.

          Not him but don't lie to yourself.

          America is the only place on Earth where the cheapest items, vegetables and fruits, are extremely expensive, overpriced, flavorless, and unripe.

          No other country would accept this garbage. I'm currently in Vietnam and I can get a bomb ass salad with zucchini noodles, basil pesto, avocado, all colors of the fricking rainbow and it will taste GREAT and be fresh for $2.

          What could $2 get you in America now? You couldn't buy a handful of peanuts for that and you'll spend a minimum $20 for your healthy vegan restaurant salad using prepackaged lettuce and organic arugula from a plastic 'triple-washed' salad mix.

          Then expect it to be lathered in "vinaigrette" made of soi, modified corn starch, emulsifiers (destroy your gut lining), and all sorts of other abominations. Or worse yet, American "salad dressing" (pure HFCS).

    its cheaper to eat healthy than eat like shit in america. you're just addicted, and if you need to go overseas to break your addiction just say that.

    the problem is that everywhere has junk food, so you won't be able to just get away from it and lose the temptation, and most of everywhere else the junk food is cheaper than the healthy, fresh alternative. not many places have year-round growing regions AND the type of well developed temperature controlled transportation logistics infrastructure of the US.
