2 weeks of Japanese cuisine to lose weight?

The Japanese diet was developed in one of the diet clinics of 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 the use of 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 specific nutritional plan designed for two weeks must be strictly observed: on all these days it is necessary to consistently follow the proposed menu.

The authors of the diet believe that deviating 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 proposed Japanese diet menu:

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

This example already shows that the diet does not correspond to the usual Japanese cuisine. In Japan, carbohydrates are preferred, mainly in the form of grains, they also eat a lot of seafood, vegetables and fruits. According to many doctors, it is this type of diet that gives the Japanese 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 in search of new ways to eat, the body begins to use up the protein reserves available in muscle tissue.

As a result, fat tissue is not lost, but muscle tissue. This is not changed by increased protein intake, which puts additional strain on the kidneys.

Nutritionist's Comment

In the proposed diet there is a clear lack of leading microelements - calcium, magnesium, potassium, which the body needs for full functioning.

In addition, there is an iron deficiency, without which the blood-forming organs cannot work. There is also a lack of vitamins A, B, C. If they are not enough in the body, a person's appearance deteriorates, performance decreases, the work of the endocrine glands and digestive organs is disrupted.

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

Black coffee, included in the Japanese diet, is a controversial product. Japanese cuisine does not use coffee at all. People with cardiovascular diseases should be careful when drinking coffee.
