      Yeah I have an illness similar to IBS, in Canada eating homecooked foods almost everday, breads, whole grain breakfast and always have constipation or have painful shits weekly.
      Went to Malaysia for a month and my symptoms cleared, ate out most of the time like carb rich foods, never watched my diet outside of very spicy. Went home and the symptoms rapidly came back. Food here is genuinely killing us faster.

        Raw ingredients in Canada and pre-packaged foods are generally of higher quality because they have tighter regulations on food production and processing than in the USA.

      My first trip abroad was Spain and their food was so fricking bad. I hardly ate for 10 days, walked 10-15km a day and lost 12lbs lol

      I had BK in Europe and it tasted the same to me. Didn’t try McDonald’s or kfc

      You have no idea how much better foreign grown fruit is than in the US in many places. Has like 10° Brix higher and way less cytotoxic herbi/pesti/fungicides. Pretty much all locally produced food for that matter, it's just most obvious in fruit. Also ends up being cheaper to buy non processed shit too, on top of higher quality. If you actually understand how the US produces plant/animal produce (even lots of organic shit) you'll realize how much worse we are than other areas just to make it scale better in the economy.

      Fully agree. Produce in Europe for the most part is amazing. Favorite part of the day was getting fresh, ripe fruits and veggies from street vendors

        I'm American living in Germany. The difference in food quality could not be more clear. When we are in Germany, my son drinks liters of Milk a week, he's 5. He won't touch American Milk, he says it's disgusting. I agree.
        Literally every ingredient is much better and more available in Europe than in the US. When I left America they were complaining about putting country of origin on food as it "may cause racism". I deserve to know where my food comes from. I only buy from Germany or Europe if a German produce isn't available. Meanwhile you have no clue in the US. Your chicken could be from China!
        Organic options in Germany are much more available too. I should have " go out of my way" to find quality. Even Aldi has better quality than American food.
        And the hilarious part is American food cost way more, and you get far less quality.

        Nah you're just a fricking moron seething because some of us can actually travel to Japan.

        The food out here is fresh daily if not hourly, I constantly see people at konbini's refreshing dishes and food. In boston? pfft you're lucky if Jamal has changed the hotdogs this year. Japanese food is simply healthier, I'm probably down to a 46 or maybe a 45 waist once I get done with my month here.

        The proof is there, average breakfast of a small pastery+healthy japanese energy drink? Maybe 3 dollars. THREE DOLLARS. That's at least 4 times cheaper than any deli back home. Do you know how much the average person eats if it was that cheap? Back home my average uber is almost 50 times that per week because I WFH and need to eat. My food bill per year is easy 12-15% my salary. Here it would be practically nothing and I'd be healthy for it. It's insane I eat near daily down at this small shop called CoCo's which reminds me like was the order rabbit and the curry is still cheap, sometimes I go to another place called Sakyia or something both I can eat big for about 10 dollars.

        The quality and subsequently the health is there as everything is made fresh lacks the stuff like MSG(even though banned I know places still use it in america), preservatives, and artificial stuff like corn syrup. Perfect example, bread is so yummy here and doesn't spoil. Back home unless it's toasted and has some seasoning like cheese, cinnamon, or brown sugar; it's inedible garbage.

        Cope all you want but I have never seen a obese japanese person here, they all have healthy food to thank. Anyone knows it's 100% diet that makes you fat and goyslop is the worst stuff, look at Europe too. Shits so fricked back in the USA

          Portion sizes. Also, Japanese people, on average, make less money compared to Americans so of course it's going to be cheaper. Also their economy has been stagnant for decades.
          >fresh fresh fresh
          Just because something is made fresh doesn't mean it's healthy weeb-san. If I go get freshly made donuts, or freshly made hotdogs, I'm not eating healthily. I agree that they probably use less HFCS and such, but doesn't mean they don't use it.
          >Cope all you want but I have never seen a obese japanese person here, they all have healthy food to thank
          Just because you're not fat as frick doesn't mean you're necessarily healthy. Check Japan's diabetes rate. Obviously, on average, the Japanese people are more healthy than Americans, and live longer. But equating that all to "they're not fat and have healthy food" is moronic. Towards the end of your life, it's almost all about whether you have good genes or not. I really enjoy Japanese food, but it's extremely boring compared to others. Also, learn to cook yourself fatass. Then you can actually control what you eat instead of eating out at "le healthy" restaurant.

    Two countries that really stand out to me for having higher quality food would be Japan and Italy. The US is pretty mid, I'd even say Canada might be worse because food is more expensive. You can buy cheap, unhealthy goyslop or spend more at a higher-end grocery store, but this is true anywhere. In terms of lower quality of food, Brazil was really disappointing with the exception of beef and coconut water, which does go a long way.

        This is just grocery stores sourcing cheap mass produce to make available consistently year-round.

        When I was a kid I'd go apple-picking in the fall. The apples were delicious. Every cultivar was far superior to the generic Macintosh or Granny Smith you could get at the supermarket. During the winter, we'd order crates of oranges and grapefruits to be shipped from Florida for Christmas. They were delicious, far better than the standard grocery store produce and we'd eat them all winter. But again, Florida oranges were only in-season during the winter. Midsummer was blueberries. We'd go into the fields at my grandmother's house and come back with buckets of wild blueberries, what we couldn't eat immediately was made into the best pies I've ever had. Wild blackberries came out later in the summer along with sweet Corn. We'd get fresh green beans and tomatoes from local farmstands. Pecans. Huge baskets of them freshly picked from Georgia. Roasted with a little butter and salt. The best.

        But everything is seasonal, doing it that way. If you want strawberry shortcake in February, you are SOL. You just can't have it unless you froze your own (and they won't taste as good as they did when you picked them)

      I’m just comparing like food you get out to be clear, because I grew up poor my parents had a garden and I grew up eating fresh veggies and know what good quality ingredients are like, that’s how I could tell the difference so easily.

      Pathetic fricking weebs creaming themselves at the sight of the shittiest fricking slop in Japan. There is good food in the US and there is shitty food in Japan, and the average Japanese meal is not more healthy than standard American food.
      Japs eat a lot of shitty carbs smothered in carb-heavy sweet sauces, deep fried crap is a staple, and good quality protein is hard to find.

      Didn’t have any issues finding protein and consumed way less fried food than I do here in the US.

      That’s Indonesian palm oil for the curry, factory farmed pork from Mexico, wheat in the takoyaki from Russia, and octopus trawled from Cambodia. Nothing there is particularly good. It’s just new. After a month of it you start to get sick of it and realize it’s just grease and salt.

                And how else are you suppose to get to a store for something lol? The closest place in Boston to actually go shopping for groceries is like mega far and dangerous on trains. Let me take a wild, but accurate guess, you're some flyover moron who will never see 6 figure pay and never see Japan or a passport.LOL

                Like take for example bread or fruit it just tastes better.. even non japanese foods like Indian nann is so much more tasty and doesn't feel like chewing rubber.

                This isn't a new phenomenon, people not how food outside the US is miles better. I'm sorry that gets you flustered as frick, but it also funny to hear about food deserts in the Midwest because they got is corn for goyslop.

                There are places in Japan where it did taste better than places in the US. But there are places in Japan where it was mediocre.
                >people not how food outside the US is miles better.
                Entirely subjective, but I sorta agree with you. I honestly don't think the food in the US is amazing, but it's not that bad. There's a lot of different cuisine styles in the US depending on where you live. Sure the franchise fast food chains are garbage, I don't deny that, but the arguments weeb-kun uses are moronic. But if it's as bad as these anons say, they can just cook themselves to completely avoid it. I get that a lot of anons on trv and SighSee in general hate the US, and I can't blame them. I also think the US is going in the wrong direction, but the idea that Japan is just some utopian place is hilarious. I've gone to Japan and really enjoyed it, but it's not a place I would want to live. The food is nice, but not exciting to me. If you want to, more power to you.

                I live just outside boston (I bike or take train in regularly) and you're fat. Plenty of shitty quality food ingredients here but there is only ever 1 thing at fault for being fat, and that is you overeating. Don't get why fat people are like women in being so defensive about it and refusing to face accountability, the only person who made you fat is you, and if you chose to it is entirely and easily in your power not to be fat. Also cheaper so whining about food prices is counterintuitive, the more expensive food is the more you save by eating less.

                Don't care about the rest of the argument, nip food is better on average than the shit here even if we have really good stuff when you look for it. Either way you should be growing half of your own stuff, it's free and easy.

                I lived in Boston and Cambridge for 10 years and always walked to the grocery store. Almost always had Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and Shaw's in walking distance. I was in Allston for awhile and the Super88/Hong Kong supermarket was also walking distance. That's a huge Asian grocery store full of imports and stinky fish. You could even get durian there iirc. Plus smaller specialty markets everywhere. When I lived there, there was a small Japanese grocery store in Porter Square (Kotobukiya), not sure if it's still open.

                Also there were a lot of good restaurants, not all goyslop, only ordered delivery when I was feeling particularly lazy or socializing with friends. I don't remember good places being that hard to find. But expensive, yes. Boston is a fairly expensive place to live.

                Most sake is garbage, you can even legally classify watered down shit as premium grade (a 20% daiginjo sake can be labeled daiginjo even if it's actually 70% ginjo +10% table sake futsushu) and a majority of japanese whiskey is one note, light garbage lacking depth. The US has one of the biggest markets for mezcal, tequila, gin and rum, while having the best market for rye and bourbon. Competitively, it is also a world class wine producer. You'd be hard pressed to find a better place to go drink than the United States.

          I'd say this is true comparing average or median restaurant food. That is, if you consider the average American's idea of going out to be Applebee's, Red Lobster, or low-effort local restaurants sourcing cheapest shit from large distributors.
          In most places I've gone in the US, though, there are better options.

    If you're traveling in the US, the trick is to find the regional specialties. I'll take a Maryland crab feast, Texas BBQ, a New York Pizza, a Chicago Steakhouse, Maine Lobster. or Florida Gulf Shrimp over any meal I've ever eaten in Europe. With that said, the bakeries in France are god-tier and without equal. And the Czechs make the best beer in the world.

    A lot of restaurants in the US order shit produce from these giant distribution companies. The tomatoes they ship are modified so they won't spoil, but they have no flavor. It all ends up in McDonald's and Taco Bell. But that doesn't mean that all tomatoes in the US are bad. Go to the eastern shore in Delaware and buy some white corn and tomatoes from a farm stand on the side of the road. It'll be the best fricking produce you ever eat in your life.

When in Italy the dishes had simple ingredients, but the ingredients they did use were very flavorful and filling.

    Japanese food is often heavily processed and artificially flavored from bulk sellers. MSG is also a hell of a thing to trick you. Japan has a terrible balance in their daily intake and it's one reason why so many can't deal with simple colds. Most need to chug vitamins daily just to not have terrible energy dips or take probiotics that's pumped into many drinks sold just so they don't shit themselves accidently.
    Japanese also are notorious for never going to a real doctor for health issues as they are worried about their employer finding out or it costs too much. Bone density loss, teeth literally falling out or needing heavy work is common which is a HUGE issue as they age.

      Fully agree. Produce in Europe for the most part is amazing. Favorite part of the day was getting fresh, ripe fruits and veggies from street vendors

      The main difference is that US doesn't have street vendors selling produce. You have farmstands and farmer's markets selling great fruits and veggies but you need to to be aware of them.

              I haven't eaten one of those since I was like 6 or 7.
              I'd say its more difficult to source non-goyslop food in the US but that is cultural, euros are much more conscious about this stuff but most Americans look at you funny if you say you try to avoid sodas and sweets. But yeah none of the items in

              are things I'd ever purchase and I don't even consider myself particularly health conscious (I still eat tons of red meat and potatoes).
              There is something to be said for the fact that there is a difference though, a jar of alfredo sauce in the US is just emulsified basedbean oil but the original recipe is based on butter and cream. The US does have "health food stores" though and they're found in any city over like 50k people, I'm not sure the concept exists in Europe.

                Yeah but it's mostly a strawman. Apart from the handful claiming "OMG Burger King is so much better overseas" posts, nobody is arguing over the difference in a bag of fricking doritos. People are gushing over non-american restaurants and produce not Mountain Dew.

                In my experience, many if not most of these have been swallowed up by regular supermarkets which offer many of the same options either alongside the traditional brands or in a "heath food" section. (Higher-quality supermarkets often even have gluten-free sections and vegan sections and so on).

        It depends I've seen some good markets and good produce. That being said it is China and shady shit happens and still happens like tainted food. I do notice Chinese do care about where said food is sourced obviously because of what has happened. Also alot of Chinese I know do not like to eat at restaurants because of the slop you mention they serve. It's also why fast food chains from America are popular because while the food is unhealthy at least it won't be poisoned

    I said this in a previous USA vs the world food wank thread as well, but I'll say it again. Adding fricking sugar to kefir that is marketed as "natural kefir" is not normal. It just isn't. In my opinion it illustrates the difference between the USA and the rest of the world. You guys just love your diabetes so much that you allow that shit.
    Does it happen elsewhere in the world as well? Yes it does.
    Do those companies to try to get away with that shit get fined so bad elsewhere for false advertising and misleading the consumers that they won't pull shit like that for a like a good decade? Yes, they immediately get hit with fines. And then they try it again, but then they get hit with fines again, and so they stop trying to sell diabetes.
    Yes, we still manage to get diabetes all over the planet, but at least we have to bathe in honey and eat baklava daily to get diabetes. We don't simply eat fricking bread and drink "natural" kefir elsewhere on the planet to get diabetes.
    It's just... A minefield walking in a US supermarket. Doesn't matter if it's Whole Foods or a farmer's market either. It's just... So, so hard to buy actual food without that corn syrup or invert sugar or added sugar. Maybe if I lived there longer I would eventually find a farmer's market that's alright, but it seems like a challenge.
    Also the giant vegetables... Bullshit. Bull. Shit. Inflated crap.

      Sugar is natural. And in my experience sugar is only ever added to "flavored" kefirs not plain kefir, so that means you're not even asking for pure kefir in the first place.

      That's just your Aunt being moronic. It must run in the family. If you want pure Maple Syrup, you don't look for a "NO HCFS" label on Mrs. Butterworth's *Syrup you look for fricking Maple Syrup. Even Wal Mart sells pure maple syrup. It's a single ingredient item and trivial to find. It's also usually sold in very different-looking containers emphasizing maple. Often they are glass with the tiny handle (pic related) sometimes they are in light beige with black lettering. Meanwhile non-maple alternatives usually advertise breakfast and pancakes and things like that and come in different (usually cheap-o plastic) bottes.

      Also, Corn Syrup is very different from High-Fructose Corn Syrup. Corn Syrup is a common ingredient that many bakers have in their kitchens for use in recipes like Pecan Pie and isn't something you should be afraid of. HCFS is the shitty additive.

    I guess I’m just showing my bourgeois privilege, but in my upbringing as a middle-class and later pretty wealthy person in reasonably wealthy communities in Massachusetts, New York, and California, I had lifelong access to high-quality ingredients and food. A good US farmer’s market, or a well-stocked local grocery, absolutely has produce as good as any European market, and it’s not necessarily expensive. Big chain supermarkets in the middle of nowhere are obviously going to get mass-market scraps. But big chain supermarkets in Europe get a lot of shit, too.

    Same is true of restaurants—there are thousands of excellent cooks in America if you can find them (and in some cases, if you can afford them, but anybody who thinks an expensive restaurant is inherently synonymous with a good restaurant, anywhere in the world, is pretty stupid).

        >means nothing
        Well, in his case it means he has assessed the product and applies the label himself, he's not just reading the front of the packaging.
        Here's another hint, if a product says "0g trans fats" it means it has trace amounts of partially-hydrogenated oils, enough that they are required to list in the ingredients. But it's less than whatever amount is required to list 1g, so they can put '0g' on the nutrition label and advertise it on the front of the package.
        >they can put a shitton of extra sugar in there because hey it's natural!
        It's very common for products to advertise "no added sugar." Usually this means there are naturally occurring sugars (eg fruit juice or dried fruit).
        >Literally everything on earth is natural.
        "Natural" in food marketing is usually interpreted to mean a chemical that exists in nature without being synthesized by humans. Tartrazine, Aspartame, Sucralose-- these are all synthetic compounds that do not exist in nature except when humans make it via chemical manipulation. It's highly unlikely you will ever find a product being advertised as "all natural" if it has synthetic flavors, sweetners or food coloring. Sometimes "natural" ingredients may be heavily processed (maple syrup starts out as a clear liquid sap from a maple tree), but so long as the chemistry isn't changed it usually counts. So rattlesnake venom is "all natural" but diet coke isn't. This really highlights the fallacy of emphasizing a "natural" diet vs healthy.

          It doesn't. Rattlesnake venom isn't a common food ingredient but nitrate preservatives are and mess with your gut biome. If you were to cook and ingest rattlesnake venom it would also denature the protein that is the venom and wouldn't harm you. Rattlesnakes meat at least is also perfectly edible.
