I would say from my time living in Japan that just the fact that you walk and move around more is enough to make lots of people thinner. I didn't restrict myself to Japanese portions if I didn't feel like it, and I had plenty of unhealthy food, but I became much thinner.
I don't mean to dismiss what you eat completely, but moving around on foot is something completely different from my normal experience living in America. When I went to London last month I noticed that there very few overweight people and I attributed that to the fact that people have to walk a lot there.
And the whole "you choose to be fat" thing is totally off base. It's like saying "you choose to be depressed".
