2 weeks of Japanese cuisine for weight loss?

The Japanese diet was created in one of the dietary clinics in this country.

The authors of this system claim that it completely reconfigures the metabolism of the human body, after which the lost extra pounds do not return for at least a couple of years.

Basic principles of the Japanese diet

Japanese diet food

A prerequisite for using the Japanese diet is a complete rejection of all types of alcohol, a ban on the use of salt and sugar, flour products and confectionery.

A certain diet plan, designed for two weeks, must be strictly followed: all these days it is necessary to follow the proposed menu steadily.

The authors of the diet believe that a deviation from the diet can change the metabolism in an unnecessary direction. One of the conditions of the Japanese diet is to drink one and a half liters of plain water every day.

Here is an example of the first day according to the suggested Japanese diet menu:

  • breakfast - coffee;
  • lunch - a couple of eggs with one tomato or 200 g of tomato juice, fresh cabbage salad;
  • dinner - fish, 200 g and cabbage salad.

It can be seen even from this example that the diet is not at all the usual Japanese cuisine. In Japan, carbohydrates are preferred, mainly in the form of cereals, and they also eat a lot of seafood, vegetables and fruits. According to many doctors, it is this way of eating that provides the Japanese with a longer life expectancy.

In the Japanese diet, the 14-day menu pays very little attention to carbohydrates, which are the main source of energy, which means that the body, in search of new ways to get food, will begin to consume those protein reserves that are available in muscle tissue.

As a result, not adipose tissue is lost, but muscle tissue. The situation does not change even increased protein intake, which additionally overloads the kidneys.

Nutritionist's comment

In the proposed diet, there is clearly a lack of leading microelements - calcium, magnesium, potassium, which are required by the body for full functioning.

There is also a lack of iron, without which the hematopoietic organs cannot work. Vitamins A, B, C are also lacking. If they are not enough in the body, a person's appearance deteriorates, efficiency decreases, the work of the endocrine glands and digestive organs is disturbed.

The low calorie and monotony of the Japanese 14-day diet can lead to relapse and overeating. After the first week of using such a diet, sleep disturbance and a decrease in performance may be observed.

Black coffee included in the Japanese diet is a controversial product. Japanese cuisine does not use coffee at all. People who have cardiovascular disease should be wary of drinking coffee.
