A Japanese guy sat down next to me at a Sushi Bar Friday night.
He immediately caught my attention because of his incredible
He had a big square head. A powerful jawline. And an amazing
rack of shiny white teeth.
He was compact like many Japanese men are, but he was carrying
a lot of muscle.
This guy was just incredibly well put together. If I had to use one
word to describe him, I’d use the word Healthy.
Oh, and one more thing. He was well into his 60’s.
He sat down and started rattling off his order in Japanese.
As he spoke I was thinking to myself, I can’t wait to see what shows
up on this guys plate.
Because in my mind, he was the perfect role model for me as I
head toward my 60’s. In a physical way at least.
And now I was going to see exactly what he’d been using to fuel
up his well preserved body.
Ten minutes later the chef put his plate down.
I looked over and saw 18 pieces of Big Eye Tuna. And a smidgen
of white rice.
And that’s it.
No cream cheese filled. Deep fried. Sugar up. Watered down junk
This guy was eating the traditional stuff!
Because in Japan, tradition says that white rice is for poor people.
So don’t insult me by filling up my plate with poor people food.
Cut a steak out of that tuna you caught this morning. Dice it up.
And hand me the plate.
Then we’ll both be happy!
Anyway, without knowing it he’d become my teacher that night.
And he was teaching a mighty powerful lesson. And I listened. Closely.
When I went home that night I actually dreamed about sushi. And
I couldn’t wait to go back and eat it again.
Which is exactly what I did just last night.
Would you care to guess what I ordered?
P.S. Exercise is important. But food is even more so.
If had to choose between eating a junk diet. Or never
I’d say adios to the exercise.
Of course, you should be doing both at all times.
So I’m going to make it easy on you…
It’s called a two for one offer. And I suggest you take it.
