The so-called experts scoff at desperate American women in search of a "magic weight loss pill," or some other simple solution to their weight problems. But it's the experts who may be the fools and gullible ones. I spent a year in Japan, which gave me a new perspective on food. How many experts and nutritionists in the United States tell overweight American women that there is no secret, no magic to weight loss. With a sarcastic sneer, that generally say something like: "all you have to do is stop stuffing yourself, substitute lettuce salad for pepperoni pizza and take up jogging." That is not really sound advice because most overweight women have such strong food cravings, that those dietary changes are not do-able. Besides, substituting lettuce for pizza is not the real reason I couldn't find a dress size 12, and barely any size 10s in Japanese department stores, stocked with size 0's through 6's. Do Japanese women have that much more willpower than we do? Of course not.
