Fat is Rare in Japan
These barely plump girls are considered fat in Japan. I always wondered why fatness was so rare in Japan? Japanese people have some of the lowest obesity rates in the world. They are a very food rich place with fast food restaurants all over the place. I've seen the professional foodies from the Food Network tour Japan and there's food all over the place and some of it is fried and rich. After all this place is the home of Ramen noodles. Definitely they protect their food from more bad chemicals or are doing something different. They eat fermented foods protecting the gut flora and their farmers aren't feeding the cows endless antibiotics and growth hormones. If you watch enough shows on Japan, they have plenty of food and it's not all dried seaweed and Nori, but there is tempera and plenty of noodles too. Some say the people are more informed and exercising more but I think far more is going on.
Don't Call Them Fat, Call Them Marshmallow Girls
