From the authors of the bestselling Japanese Women Don’t Get Old or Fat comes The Japan Diet, a guide to losing weight the Japanese way.
In Japanese Women Don’t Get Old or Fat, Naomi Moriyama introduced us to the foundations of one of the healthiest diets on Earth – – and now she’s back with The Japan Diet, a thirty day plan on how to incorporate the best of Japan-style eating into our own lives – and it works.
22% of adults in England are obese, compared to 32% in the U.S., and only 3% in Japanese people live longer and more healthily than every other nation on Earth Experts say its not all in the genes – – diet and lifestyle pay a major role The Japan Diet is inspired by Naomi’s own experiences of growing up in Japan and it is based on a simple philosophy – gradual weight loss and long-term weight maintenance through healthy eating, active lifestyle and the best expert advice. The Japan Diet is not a restrictive set of rules, or a diet which calls for food groups to be eliminated, but a whole new way of falling in love with food.
The Japan Diet is based on the healthiest foundations of the traditional Japanese diet and the latest advice of the world’s leading nutritional experts. But The Japan Diet doesn’t focus on Japanese food all the time – you can simply apply the Japanese principles of healthy eating to your diet. Naomi appreciates that many of us barely have time to shop, and talks us through a series of small, very simple shifts and tweaks which can be made to the foods we already enjoy.

Here’s what the experts say about Japan-style eating:
The Japanese diet is a very good one, perhaps the best.
Dr Robert Vogel, cardiologist
If eaten in the balance that the Japanese apply – heavy on the vegetables and light on the fats and meats – Japanese food can be a dieter’s dream.
Jane Kirby, Registered Dietitian
The traditional Japanese diet is among the healthiest in the world. It is rich in vegetables from the land and sea, cooked and raw, fruit, vegetable protein such as tofu, and fish.
Dr David Ludwig, Harvard Medical School
