Want to live a healthy sustainable life to the age of 110? The Okinawa, Japan diet has received credit in several news articles due to reports of their balanced diet of carbohydrates, protein, and fat. The Okinawa diet and lifestyle equates to one of the highest life expectancies in the world. Environmental factors have resulted in a consumption of foods that encourage sustainability. High sources of sustainably detrimental protein intake are curbed with minimal amounts being consumed from livestock and fish. 

Other sustainable and not so healthy diets from around the world can be discovered in the book, Hungry Planet. Peter Mendzel documents as a photojournalist and world traveller the many varying diets that are in each corner of the world. To learn more about nutrition and begin thinking critically about how Americans and others around the globe approach dieting, food, and nutrition-read the coffee table book Hungry Planet. Global understanding of diverse health topics is beneficial for all that take the time to read this book.
