  1. Drink Tons of Green Tea. This health powerhouse is packed with antioxidants and metabolism-boosting properties 


  1. Soy Is a Huge Part of Our Diet. For thousands of years, the Chinese have been consuming soy-based foods like miso, tofu, edamame and soy sauce as part of their daily diets 


  1. Move the Body Consistently. Walk more often on a daily basis. Did you know the average person in Hong Kong walks more than 6 miles a day? Walking will also help to keep the waistline slim.  


  1. The Sun Is Not Our Friend. In general, the Chinese have historically avoided the sun. Solar rays are major contributors to rapid aging and cancer if precautionary measures are not taken adequately. Prolonged exposure to sunlight is a direct cause for numerous skin disorders, diseases and cancers.  


  1. Desert Is Just Fruit. In China, desert primarily consists of fresh fruit as opposed to cake, sweets and dairy foods.  


  1. Eat Ginger Frequently. Ginger can be found in most Chinese dishes. This ingredient stimulates circulation, improves the immune system, and is even an aphrodisiac.  


  1. Dairy Intake Is Minimal. The Chinese diet includes a small amount of dairy, if at all.  


In addition to these nutrition and lifestyle tips, Chinese Medicine is also a major preventative of aging, health issues and various diseases.
