The Japanese diet is ideal for girls who are no more than ten kilograms overweight. It is quite strict and is not one of the balanced ones as it limits the absorption of carbohydrates into the body. So before you decide to lose weight according to this system, you need to adjust psychologically.

For two weeks, the daily diet includes only foods rich in protein and fiber. Fats are not completely eliminated, but the amount of vegetable oil is also limited.

The emphasis on protein and strict carbohydrate restriction is the foundation of the highly potent Japanese diet. So if you decide to follow all the rules and survive the marathon to the end, then in two weeks you will have to seriously update your wardrobe.

If the body reacts badly to a strict regimen, headache or abdominal pain, weakness, dizziness, body aches, the diet should be stopped immediately and a doctor should be consulted.

It is strictly forbidden to use such a food system for people with acute or chronic diseases of the gastrointestinal tract (gastritis, ulcers), liver, kidney, heart. The nutrition of pregnant women, breastfeeding women and adolescents is out of the question. It is not recommended to restrict your diet during periods of high mental or physical exertion.

Basic principles of nutrition

The Japanese diet is a classic low-calorie, low-carbohydrate diet. It is not only considered highly effective, but also absolutely safe for a healthy person. The principles of separate nutrition, which form the basis of nutrition, facilitate the work of the gastrointestinal tract, normalize metabolic processes.

The eating rules are as follows:

  • the use of protein products: eggs, fish, meat, poultry, milk;
  • Vegetables and crackers made from foods containing carbohydrates are allowed (strictly limited);
  • some vegetable oil (olive, sunflower, linseed oil) may be used;
  • on "Vegetable Festival" days, the number of vegetables (including those fried in oil) is not limited, making it easier to endure severe restrictions;
  • natural coffee, pure or flavored green tea is allowed;
  • With every protein diet, it is important to pay attention to an increased water balance: Drink at least one and a half to two liters of water (still). This will help the kidneys cope with the elimination of breakdown products from protein foods;
  • it is forbidden to change the order of days, replace food, add additional ingredients to the diet;
  • Salt should either be eliminated entirely or minimized;
  • the frequency of meals - three times a day without snacks;
  • Sugar and alcohol are strictly prohibited.

To get started with the diet properly, you need to cut down on sweets, starchy foods, and portion size three to four days before you start. You should not start a diet after a festive feast and libations. Make your evening meal very easy: a 200-gram serving of cooked rice and a cup of vegetable salad are a great transition to a strict diet.

Exit diet mode

The strict diet of the Japanese diet is difficult to endure. The reward will be an excellent result. Even so, one cannot rush for food. It is very important to get out of the regime properly so as not to harm the body and not to gain the pounds lost.

Of course, you really want to be pampered, but pastries and cakes are not an option. The basic rule of any diet: how much time do you spend on a tough diet, how long it takes to get out of the regime. That means you can start your normal diet in two weeks. The basic rules are as follows:

  • do not add more than one or two products to the menu a day, giving preference to cereals, vegetables and fruits;
  • adhere to the principles of a balanced diet and provide the body with proteins, carbohydrates and fats;
  • switch to fractionated five meals a day (serving size no more than 250-300 grams);
  • do not stop the water balance, drink one and a half liters of drinking water without gas every day;
  • first of all, observe the principles of separate diet and avoid refined foods;
  • Remove candy cravings with dried fruit, a slice of dark chocolate, and sweet fruit.

The high results of the Japanese diet create a great temptation to keep losing weight following this system. However, the strictly reduced-carbohydrate diet can only be repeated six months after the end of the cycle at the earliest. The body needs to fully recover, otherwise, instead of a slim silhouette, you can acquire metabolic disorders and seriously harm your health.
