I'm downright in total shock mode. The pressure to be thin has grown internationally! Not only that but Japan has their own "preferred" word for the term, overweight: metabo. WTF?! They said the word obesity created a negative image. Ummm,I have an idea. How about no longer creating nicknames for being fat?! That would be great! Yesterday, my co-worker, Jason forwarded me an article about Japan being obsessed with their already small waistlines. Ridiculous, right? It's so true though. Basically, there is a 2 month old law in Japan requires that waistline measurements as part of physical check-ups for people between the ages of 40 and 74. Crazy, right? Not done yet. There is limit requirement. Men = 33.5 inches and Women = 35.4 nches. So, you ask, "What if they fall over the limit?" LOL! For one, you are considered OVERWEIGHT. Second, you have 3 months to trim your waist. If you fail to fall below the government requirement, you will receive education on dieting. Is that wrong or what? Talk about being anorexic over there! You know I'm a proud supporter of fitness, exercise, and eating right but I'm not that hardcore! Come on people. Let's just be healthy. We all know junk food is bad so eat more fruits and vegetables! We all know exercise helps us live longer and build stronger bodies so go walking or do fun activities! All it takes is common sense not some stupid law! Insane man, totally insane. My advice to the Japanese - boycott your summon notice for the metabo check up!! If you are happy with your weight then more power to you. Don't let the government take over your life! Check it out:
