The Japan Diet : The Secret to Effective and Lasting Weight Loss Paperback

3 out of 5 (1 rating)


Raised in Tokyo, author Naomi Moriyama first travelled to the West as a college student, and promptly gained 25 pounds eating a typical Western diet.

Returning home for the holidays, she found that the weight melted off as she reverted to the healthy diet of her homeland.

The experience inspired her first book "Japanese Women Don't Get Old or Fat".

Healthy and effective, "The Japan Diet" is based on the traditional Japanese style of eating and is filled with over 40 simple, delicious recipes: satisfying soups, fresh vegetables, delicate grilled fish; mouthwatering meals that will keep you satisfied for longer. And with a 7-day Healthy Eating Plan built on the foundations of the Japanese diet, but based on ready meals, takeaway foods and convenience items from supermarkets, this book is also ideal for those dieters without the time to cook.

With clear, practical advice and handy shortcuts, this diet offers a fresh and easy approach to a healthier, slimmer lifestyle.

Review by

A wonderful starter book for those not quite familiar with Japanese customs and cuisines. The author writes mainly of her experiences, as to be expected usually of one writing such a book as this. My opinion of this book is neither negative nor extremely positive, but leaning more towards neutral. Seeing as I was already quite a bit familiar with some Japanese cuisine and the statistics she shared, much of the book wasn't anything I had not already heard before. I did glean some tid-bits from it, however. It has made me think more about my place in the world and help me self-examine myself. It's also helped me solidify some of my goals. Also, I do very much agree with eating more fish and green leafy vegetables and fruits. In all, the effort she took to write this book is certainly appreciated and the book makes a nice contribution to help fight off obesity in the world.
