Have you ever won­dered why it is almost impos­si­ble to meet fat peo­ple in Japan? If you exclude sumo wrestlers, the rest of the inhab­i­tants of this island nation are dis­tin­guished by a rather thin physique.

One of the rea­sons for the slim­ness of the Japan­ese is their diet. His­tor­i­cal­ly, grace­ful and slen­der Japan­ese women have rice, veg­eta­bles, green tea, fish and seafood in their dai­ly menu.

There­fore, an effec­tive diet based on these prod­ucts is called the Japan­ese diet. You need to fol­low this diet for two weeks, dur­ing which it is pos­si­ble to lose up to 8 kg: dur­ing this time, the metab­o­lism will be rebuilt so much that experts advise repeat­ing the diet only after 2–3 years. It is also cat­e­gor­i­cal­ly impos­si­ble to increase the dura­tion of the diet — this can cause seri­ous harm to the metab­o­lism.

So, the dai­ly diet dur­ing the clas­sic Japan­ese diet includes:

  • 300–400 g rice
  • 150–250 g fruit
  • about 300 g of veg­eta­bles
  • 120 g fish
  • 100 g milk
  • about 60 g legumes
  • 1 egg

Dur­ing the diet, you need to exclude sug­ar, salt, alco­hol, con­fec­tionery and pas­tries from your diet. Be sure to drink at least 1.5 liters of pure or min­er­al water and include only these prod­ucts in the diet.
