Reading Japanese Food Labels...

About a month and a half ago I finally got permission to do personal training on our base.  In that short time, personal references have led to a completely full schedule and many, many, many questions about nutrition.  I realized, how can I expect weight-loss clients to track their calories if they can't read the labels?  So I went on a search for Japanese food label translations.  I found this excellent source: The Ultimate Guide to Reading Food Labels in Japan  Of course then I had to copy it all and print it out into booklet form to give to my clients and a copy to take shopping myself, and even to restaurants.  Hmmm, no more excuses for buying the incredibly delicious Japanese pastries and custards, darn.
(Though it's all fine in moderation, right?;)
