Culture
Stay in Japan!

What is 腹八分目(はらはちぶめ・harahachibume)in Japanese?

How does “Don’t eat too much!!” call in Japanese?

八分目
はらはちぶめ
Hara hachibu me

Hara: tummy
Hachibu: 80%

This is kinda saying.
It says “Don’t eat too much!!”.

「まだ、いける(食べられる)な。」
ぐらいのところで、やめておくのが
健康けんこうに良いみたいですね。

You should try eating until you’re 80% full. Instead of completely full.

Most of Japanese ppl are good in shape. Maybe that is because they do 腹八分目(はらはちぶめ)
