In Japan, there is an annual health check for the entire population. BMI and waist measurements are taken. You have the option to tick a box that says you would like to receive advice about diet and exercise, which I think is a non-confrontational way of handling it. I think you also get advice if some of the other tests (like cholesterol, blood pressure, etc.) come back with bad numbers.
'Have you heard of the Mediterranian Diet? he says.
'Yes,' we say, 'we've heard of it.'
'I don't know anything about it,' says him, 'but I've heard it's good.'
