Over the past 40 years, millions of people have participated in the most massive de facto longevity and anti-obesity experiment of all time. They have discovered how to conquer obesity and live longer than everyone else on earth. And now, for the first time ever, they are about to share their secrets with you. JAPANESE WOMEN DON'T GET OLD is based on a fascinating health trend: as the US, the UK and Europe suffer an obesity epidemic that is injuring millions of people, the Japanese people are enjoying the greatest health and longevity in the world - and the lowest obesity rates of any industrialised nation. This is the first book to reveal the secrets of Japanese home cooking and the diet and lifestyle secrets of the Land of Immortal Women: Japan. It is written by Japanese expert Naomi Moriyama, who was born and raised in Tokyo. The book is poised to capitalise on the Western world's concern over obesity and health and fitness, as well as its growing interest in Japanese pop culture and Japanese food.
