>>4508>The typical Japanese diet is not high in carbs.
Rice with every meal? It's not a stereotype, the word for "meal" is actually the same word for "steamed rice" in their language. There are other variables but one thing is certain, they are far from keto, do not avoid carbs, and eat less red meat than the rest of our countries and have a much lower obesity rate. Japanese trying to become sumo wrestlers actually have to give up their traditional diet and switch to eating a lot of beef in order to gain the proper physique, and in turn they on average have substantially shorter lifespans on average compared to a typical(non sumo) Japanese person.
>Slender people tend to have more self control around carbs than fats.
All I have are personal anecdotes, so I can't refute this. Do you have a source for this? Sardinia and Japan have carb based diets (pasta noodles and the other rice) with the meat intake for both being primarily fish rather than beef.
My anecdote says the opposite and that slender people tend to not eat fried food or calorie dense things as a staple of their diet, while also not being sedentary. All I ever see are fat people talking about carbs, fat people saying "I lost 40 pounds on keto" while still being overweight and never actually reaching a slender body before rubber banding back.
>What you’re doing is like touting the benefits of alcohol to an alcoholic.
Except I'm not damaging my body? There's more to health than bodyfat, such blood pressure/cholesterol. It's stupid to compare eating oats/rice/bread to alcoholism as every government health organization of each Anglo country warns that the keto diet isn't exactly healthy(this is where the keto followers say that our governments want to keep us weak and fat by telling us to eat carbs), but the Amerigan diabetus association says keto is fantastic. If it was comparable, doctors would have pointed out some kind of organ damage to me or said I was pre-diabetic. They'd have something to point out to me, like when they pointed out my high blood pressure when I was a fat person. Also rude as fuck to call me some kind of addict, do you think it takes no self control for me to not eat delicious cheese and steak and fried chicken whenever I please?
