- Drink tons of green tea: Green tea is a health powerhouse packed with antioxidants and metabolism-boosting properties.
- Soy is a huge part of our diet: For thousands of years, the Chinese have been consuming various soy-based foods such as miso, tofu, edamame and soy sauce as part of their daily diets.
- Move around regularly: Walk more on a daily basis. Did you know that the average person in Hong Kong walks more than 6 miles a day? Walking will also help to keep the waistline slim.
- The sun is not our friend: In general, the Chinese have historically avoided the sun. In fact, the sun is a major contributor to rapid aging and cancer development if adequate measures are not taken to protect against harmful rays. Prolonged exposure to sunlight is a direct cause for many skin disorders, diseases and cancers.
- Desert is just fruit: In China, desert primarily consists of fruit as opposed to cake, sweets or dairy foods.
- Eat ginger: Ginger is in most Chinese food dishes. It stimulates circulation, improves the immune system, and even acts as an aphrodisiac.
- Minimal dairy intake: The Chinese diet includes very minimal dairy intake, if at all.
- Chinese Medicine can protect against unhealthy aging, several medical issues and chronic diseases.
