The good news with Japanese dieting is that you don’t have to starve and do exhausting workouts to stay fit all year round. Sometimes there comes a point in life when you lose shape and you really need a dietary regime that will give you back your good-looking body and your confidence.

But the word “diet” does not mean “stay hungry”. It simply means a different diet than your usual one. Let’s not forget that there are different types of diets, including those for weight gain for example (increasing your daily calorie intake).

If you have recently gained a lot of weight as a result of your unhealthy way of life, then I suggest you try a 7-day Japanese diet plan for weight loss, which really gives decent results in a short period of time.

It is a well known fact that Japan is famous as a country of fit people, because there is an extremely small percentage of the population suffering from obesity (see the best natural tips how to overcome obesity). This is due to the fact that the Japanese eat mainly low-calorie food, low in fat and carbohydrates.

The duration of the Japanese Diet is 14 days. In the first week you will lose weight from 5 to 7 pounds (3.18 kg).

During the second week with 500 grams lost every day. From 7 to 14 days the diet is repeated in the same order.

There are several basic rules in weight loss, the proper observance of which sooner or later leads to positive results for each person.

Eating More Natural Food

This is probably one of the most important rules to follow when you want to lose weight. If you want to get in shape, you must avoid bad foods such as:

  • cakes
  • pastries
  • pasta
  • fried meat
  • french fries
  • meat with preservatives and additives (processed meat)
  • carbonated and energy drinks
  • fruit juices that contain additives such as flavors, food coloring (dye), sugar and organic acids
  • any kind of “junk food”

They are high in calories, but at the same time they do not provide your body with the nutrients it actually needs. In fact, some of them make you even hungrier because they can cause blood sugar swings.

Instead, Your Menu Should Contain Plenty Of:

  • Vegetables and fruits
  • Freshly squeezed juices
  • Natural and organic meat (if possible antibiotic and hormone free)
  • Raw nuts
  • Dried fruits
  • Natural dairy products

If you want to know more about healthy eating and which foods to consume and which to avoid, read these blog posts covering the topic:

Drinking Water

Your body consists of 70-75% water, so it is not surprising that you need to drink a lot of water. Dehydration can also be the cause of fatigue, so good hydration energizes you and literally “removes” all unnecessary toxins from your body.

Drinking a glass of water before a meal increases the feeling of satiety and is a clever trick when following the Japanese diet.

Good Sleep

Sleep is an important factor in your struggle to lose weight. A good night’s sleep from 7 to 9 o’clock should not be underestimated when it comes to weight loss.

Quality sleep helps your body recover. On the other hand, poor sleep can make most people feel hungry, as it is responsible for controlling appetite.

Physical Activity

No matter how healthy your weight loss meal plan is, you cannot succeed if you rely on it alone. The practice of any sport adapted to your fitness level is the key to success in weight loss.

It is not possible to lose weight in just one area of ​​the body. Therefore, go for complex workouts that cover more muscle groups to maximize their effect. If you are not really that type of person, try to walk at least 7000 steps a day.

An active hobby outdoors such as cycling, basketball, football, tennis, dancing, martial arts, hiking, mountain climbing, swimming etc. (the options are endless) is very good alternative to home workouts.

Do not give up! As you may be heard it before, all depends on you and your personal motivation and determination! (see Motivation To Lose Weight – The Big Picture).
