What if there were a land where people lived longer than anywhere else on earth, the obesity rate was the lowest in the developed world, and women in their forties still looked like they were in their twenties? Wouldn't you want to know their extraordinary secret? 

Japanese-born Naomi Moriyama reveals the secret to her own high-energy, successful lifestyle–and the key to the enduring health and beauty of Japanese women–in this exciting new book. The Japanese have the pleasure of eating one of the most delicious, nutritious, and naturally satisfying cuisines in the world without denial, without guilt…and, yes, without getting fat or looking old. 

As a young girl living in Tokyo, Naomi Moriyama grew up in the food utopia of the world, where fresh, simple, wholesome fare is prized as one of the greatest joys of life. She also spent much time basking in that other great center of Japanese food culture: her mother Chizuko's Tokyo kitchen. Now she brings the traditional secrets of her mother's kitchen to you in a book that embodies the perfect marriage of nature and culinary wisdom–Japanese home-style cooking.

If you think you've eaten Japanese food, you haven't tasted anything yet. Japanese home-style cooking isn't just about sushi and raw fish but good, old-fashioned everyday-Japanese-mom's cooking that's stood the test of time–and waistlines–for decades. Reflected in this unique way of cooking are the age-old traditional values of family and the abiding Japanese love of simplicity, nature, and good health. It's the kind of food that millions of Japanese women like Naomi eat every day to stay healthy, slim, and youthful while pursuing an energetic, successful, on-the-go lifestyle. Even better, it's fast, it's easy, and you can start with something as simple as introducing brown rice to your diet. You'll begin feeling the benefits that keep Japanese women among the youngest-looking in the world after your very next meal!

If you're tired of counting calories, counting carbs, and counting on being disappointed with diets that don't work and don't satisfy, it's time to discover one of the best-kept and most delicious secrets for a healthier, slimmer, and long-living lifestyle. It's time to discover the Japanese fountain of youth…

    " Quick little read detailing the food wisdom the author learned growing up in Tokyo. Nothing groundbreaking here. Japanese women have a different relationship with food than Americans. They eat more rice, soy and fish and are focused on small portions of fresh, well-prepared foods. Some of the recipes looked very good, but I am not in a place to buy lots of supplies for Japanese cooking nor dishware for Japanese-style serving. "

    " A good book, although it was really preaching to the choir--it is aimed at those who have little to no experience with Japanese cooking or cuisine. That being said, I actually tried out one of the many recipes in the book and rather enjoyed it, and it has my whole family on a Japanese food kick so I guess you could say we were inspired by this book :) "

    " I love it! This book put me back in the kitchen after being sick and not wanting to cook for a while. The recipes in here are great and the tips Moriyama suggests aren't too difficult to follow. Been cooking out of this book since I got it. "

    " I tried 5 of the recipes from this book so far and loved it! I can't say the same for the writing although a few of her stories were interesting. "
