Oｈ ! my
God story NO. ２９
American overweight is amazing
The level of overweight in America can't be compared with Japan.
For example, they are like a ball.
They eat a lot, too.
One day, I went to a restaurant in the hotel.
They serve a buffet in the restaurant.
There were a overweight woman and a regular-size woman
eating near my seat .
I saw a large quantity of food on a big plate in front of her.
That was five times more than what I was eating.
I didn't think she could eat all.
But she ate all in thirty minutes.
It was marvelous.
So Japanese people are broken the idea of size.
I heard a story like this.
A overweight man came from Japan.
He minded to be fat when he was in Japan.
But he feels himself thin after coming to America.
So he found peace in his mind and started to eat a lot.
After all, he gained twenty five kilo gram since he came to America.
Oｈ ! my God.
