Eat like the Japanese, live to be 100

Eating like the French? That's so last year. It's time to take a look at the Japanese diet and its benefits:

It's true that Japan has one of the world's lowest obesity rates. Only 3 percent of Japanese women are obese, compared with 13 percent in France and 33 percent in the United States, according to the International Association for the Study of Obesity.

The Japanese also are global longevity champs, particularly the people of Okinawa -- home to the world's largest population of centenarians.

This article even has a recipe for "Aromatic steamed salmon with shallots and broccoli." Hmm... Sounds yummy! Is it too early to break for lunch?
