From the article:
If you're male and your waist is over 33.5 inches, you're considered fat. If you're female, the limit is 35.4 inches.
I used to live in Japan -- there were many, many "American" fast food places that were always frequented with Japanese people. Even though I was young, I rememver everything tasting good. McDonalds, KFC, and Shakey's pizza were located off base, while Burger King was always on base.
Side note -- I remember when BK transitioned to their current french fry cooking style. Dis-fucking-gusting.
The fast food places I went to had everything looking exactly like the menu. Perfectly proportioned buns.. oh man, I want to go back. Nostalgia time. ;_;
I learned in biology that your body shape was mostly affected by how you were when you were young. Bad youth diet? Fat later on. I imagine people like Jared from Subway had one hell of a time havign his body adapt to changes in diet.
The parks that were located in Japan were intense. There were huge wooden pirate ships, lots of rope ladders you can climb on, a child's damn dream. And I got to play on MANY of them.
There are no parks nearly as great as this in the US, which I blame solely on safety laws or some shit. But I am digressing. Japan will not have a serious weight problem like the US does.
