So, I really wonder what Americans would do if our government took our obsesity crisis as seriously as Japan is for it's citizens? Seriously... check this story out. They have a LEGAL size waist in this country... if you're not legal, you're given dieting advice! If you don't lose the amount of weight needed to get yourself down to the legal limit, your company can have financial penalties put on them. Now, it's only for people ages 40-75, but still. Imagine if the U.S. did that for people ages 25-75... what a wonder it would work for our society and it's health!
