- Daily Mail (UK)

"Excellent! A diet that's anti ageing, slimming and fills you up."
- Grazia

"Moriyama dishes up tasty recipes, along with portions of memoir that capture her childhood in Tokyo."
- You magazine

"...actually much more about the differences between Western and Eastern cultures, more memoir than diet book...surprisingly fascinating."
- Sunday Express (UK)

"The book's message is simple. I started off a cynic, but found it easy and enjoyed exploring my local Asian supermarket for new ingredients."
- Olive magazine review:

"In Japan, people live longer than anywhere else on Earth; obesity is virtually unknown, and 40-year-old women look like they're 20. The secret: Japanese home-style cooking, and an approach to eating that is not about self-deprivation, but about celebrating and savouring food. Raised in Tokyo, author Naomi Moriyama first travelled to the West as a student, and promptly gained 25 pounds. Returning home for the holidays, she found that the weight melted off as she returned to the food of her mother's tiny kitchen: soups, fresh vegetables, grilled fish; meals that never left her feeling hungry. Filled with healthy recipes and evocative reminiscences, this book is for those who are tired of finding themselves on diets that don't work. JAPANESE WOMEN DON'T GET OLD OR FAT offers a fresh and easy approach to weight loss and promises readers a healthier, slimmer, and longer life."
