Japanese diet – 14 days

Unlike North America and Europe, in Japan tiny percentage of the population is overweight or suffers from obesity.  The main reason for this, according to nutritionists, is that the Japanese people mainly consume low-calorie food with less carbohydrates and fats. So on the basis of their diet the Japanese diet that lasts 14 days was created – highly effective, but with specific eating requirements.

Unlike other diets, Japanese diet (14 days) is not fast, but it is fairly balanced and after you’re done with it your body will get used to the good habits that it has acquired (of course that also depends entirely up to you), which allows maintaining the new weight for many years if you have healthy lifestyle afterwards. Together with the weight loss, if you followed the Japanese diet, you will enjoy a better metabolism – thanks to progress made by the detox and cleansing effect.

After the first week of the Japanese diet  it is normal to lose about 7 to 8 pounds, and after the complete 14 days – 15 to 16 pounds.

Like the other weight loss diets, Japanese diet requires you to follow a number of limitations: pure carbohydrates should be excluded from the diet (like sugar, confectionery, alcohol, etc.) and all sources of salt.

Important! Consult your doctor before starting any kind of diet, especially if you have health problems.

      We’re not certified nutritionists, but we think that you should stick to the meal plan only if you want to get the results that this diet gives. On the other hand, we see no reason why you shouldn’t eat some fruit or vegetables in between the meals as long as it isn’t a huge amount. You should try and see what works the best for you.
