In the wellness world, there seem to be two distinct types of diets. There are those that are inspired by a certain principle, such as the Ketogenic Diet, which advocates for fats over carbohydrates, and the Paleo Diet, which suggests eating in a manner similar to that of our ancient ancestors. Then there are those that are inspired by a certain location, like the Nordic Diet and the Mediterranean Diet. The latter has proved particularly buzzy, growing to become one of the largest dietary movements across the world (right up there with veganism). It focuses on consuming fruit, veggies, nuts, olive oil, whole grains, and fish, and steering clear of red meat and dairy, just like people have traditionally done throughout the Mediterranean. This diet is thought to increase life span by preventing certain diseases—cancer and heart disease included. 

The newest diet gaining traction in the wellness world is similar to the Mediterranean Diet, yet different in that it takes heed from a small Japanese island called Okinawa. Since Japan has a higher percentage of centenarians (people aged 100 and older) per capita than anywhere else, it’s only apt that the rest of the world is looking to them for healthy living inspiration. Keep scrolling to learn all about the Okinawa Diet, including what it entails, why it’s trending, and what it can mean for your health.
