In a network it is possible to find ready-made recipes for the japanese diet. If you still have gathered this knowledge do — they will be a good help. In general, all the recipes have their value: as for the use in the diet, and outside of them, and only to broaden their horizons.

The output of the japanese diet

The only way to keep the result — properly exit the diet. Help you the following recommendations:

  1. Because of serious limitations in the diet on the japanese diet has marked a slowing down of the metabolism: the body goes into emergency mode, trying with all their might to maintain health. The strong increase in caloric intake will lead to the fact that all of this will be postponed until the body of the reserve.
  2. For a start, it is necessary to determine daily calorie needs, considering your height, weight, age, level of physical activity. For this there are special formulas, or you can use an online calculator.
  3. Calorie-counting diet, you will need to drive with the utmost precision, the technique "eye" here is not working. Should weigh each meal, to insert the data into a special computer, or to count create the tables, calories food.
  4. It is necessary to calculate the average calorie diet to diet and add to it a 100-200 calories. If the whole diet was on the 900 kcal, when you exit, you need to eat 1000-1100 calories during the first two weeks.
  5. Each week you need to add 100 calories until you have reached the daily rate calculated in the second paragraph.
  6. You should in parallel keep track of nutrients: proteins, fats, carbohydrates. This "construction materials" for the body, which are made of tissues and muscles. Their lack can cause new problems. The optimal ratio for weight maintenance following: protein — 25-35% of our daily diet, fat — 25-35%, carbs — 30% to 50%.
  7. Don't forget to normal drinking water consumption per day: 1.5-2 litres.
  8. In an optimal way after the japanese diet to pass a full examination to be made, install a deficiency of any nutritional components. On the basis of exams, the specialist will prescribe a course of multivitamins.
  9. The power supply must become a fraction, 5-6 times per day. We recommend that you use the "rule of plates": the middle fills up with useful fresh vegetables, the remaining half is distributed uniformly on the boundary, and the meat or fish.

Because the japanese diet implies the categorical rejection of carbohydrates, and then insert the them will be very slowly, little by little. The exit from the diet may take 4-6 months. The fact is that the restriction of simple carbohydrates, in fact, it gives a fast result, but this is due to loss of fluids, muscle mass and only a small part of the fat. You'll need to enter an intense workout at least three times a week.

If we analyze reviews of weight loss, the effectiveness of the japanese diet does not depend on the power and strength of will exposure. Lose weight, of course, is possible. The question remains — at what price?

The opinion of a doctor-nutritionist

As a physician with years of experience, we can summarize and highlight the following advantages and disadvantages of the japanese diet.


+Reduction of carbohydrates (actively promotes weight loss because the body does not receive energy from the outside, and he is forced to do the usual things to take the energy from your own resources, that is, burn "the fat"

+Strictly excluding salt (actively promotes the loss of weight due to the elimination of excess fluid from the body)

+Is not expensive (a maximum of 2 Rubles. for the whole diet)

+Duration 2 weeks (you can try to resist as well as short-term)

+The long-term conservation outcome (if you successfully finish)

+The risk of an allergic reaction is minimal, because everything on the menu is made up of all the popular dishes/products

+Permission to use a small amount ve olive oil (for salad dressing or cooking of food (fats)

+Accepted yogurt and kefir (which will help to avoid constipation)

+Fruit (except bananas and grapes. Best savory: apple, pear, cherry)

+SOME are present in the diet, thus a strong damage to the stomach will not be done

+Reduction of weight throughout the diet 5-8 kg(for those who must fit in the favorite dress before an important event)

Let us now examine against, especially with the weight reduction. Based on his medical experience, learned a lot from the topics Japanese for the diet I do not have. I can reasonably explain: for a short period, it is possible to reduce the weight, surely, but the adipose tissue is not simply an excess of the substance, but also the most important organ endocrine. The drastic weight reduction can lead to a change of job hormonal process. Remember that this adipose tissue you eat the years, and below it the body mimics his work. Because it removes the salt, the weight reduction is because of water, risks of dehydration. The cancellation or drastic reduction of food carbohydrates, so it worsens our physical and mental health. The carbohydrate is first of all a source of energy, mental and physical. In this diet, missing breakfast as well as tea or coffee is the liquid, and not the food. Remember the rule "the Breakfast myself" is the truth, because it is precisely in the morning the work starts all over the body throughout the day. With severe limitations and rapid weight loss, increasing the risk of weight gain, and even more after the end of the diet. Here plays an important role hormone grillin. Grillin is a confusion of hunger, which is calculated for the maximum number of kilograms, which is weighed, and then negrodamus, then you start to enjoy your food even more, so the weight is typed. This diet is a lot of contraindications:

  • It is not possible during pregnancy and lactation
  • Not people with a diagnosis of ulcer and gastritis
  • It is not the people with the disease of the liver and kidneys
  • It is not possible for the people with cardiac diseases, etc.

So my recommendation before taking the decision to reduce the weight, please consider not only the advantages but also all the pitfalls that can hide, but, however, cause significant damage to health.
