A delicious diet that really works!, 29 Jan 2006
At last, an intelligent book full of slimming and anti-ageing secrets that lives up to its promise. In "Japanese Women Don't Get Old or Fat" Naomi Moriyama reveals the secrets of a diet and way of life which makes Japanese women live longer and look half their age. Based around a simple philosophy of fresh and natural foods, the book is packed full of delicious recipes - a must for anyone who is a fan of wonderful Japanese cuisine. The food is simple to make, suprisingly easy to get hold of at your local supermarket, and delicious to eat. And unlike other diet fads, it doesn't leave you feeling restricted or hungry. In addition to the recipes, the book is full of beautifully written anecdotes which give a wonderful insight into the Japanese way of life. At times you really do feel transported there. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who likes Japanese food and wants to lose weight, get healthy and indulge in escapism on the way.
