The Japanese diet is considered to be one of the most effective and popular modern diets.
Why? Because within a fairly short period of time - 14 days, you can get rid of 7 to 11 extra pounds.
Such a quick effect is explained by the fact that the Japanese diet is not balanced, that is, it is compiled without taking into account the proportions of fats, proteins and carbohydrates. In addition, the menu of the Japanese diet is quite low in calories due to the low content of carbohydrates in it, which makes the body work on burning its own fat layer.
The main goal of the Japanese diet is to change the rhythm of metabolic processes in the body, which subsequently allows you to maximize the effect of losing weight for 2-3 years.
The essence of the Japanese diet
The essence of the Japanese diet is food with an increased amount of protein, which is supplied by foods allowed in the diet: meat, fish, dairy products.
The Japanese diet is considered quite rigid due to the strict restrictions on the menu. During the Japanese diet, you can not eat:
- sugar and confectionery;
However, if you are used to drinking only coffee for breakfast, and prefer meat and fish from food, the Japanese diet will not seem so difficult to you. Moreover, one of the advantages of this diet is fermented milk products, fruits and vegetables allowed in the diet.
Liquid intake during the Japanese diet is not limited - you can drink as much as you want during the day, but not less than 1. 5 liters per day. You can drink mineral water, tea or just pure water.
There are several menu options for the Japanese diet for 14 days, which do not differ much from each other in the composition of the products. But if you have chosen one option, you should not "jump" to another if the first one suddenly did not suit you for some reason.

Japanese diet plan and rules
1. Consultation with a doctor
- Firstly, the Japanese diet provides for the constant consumption of black coffee, which may be contraindicated for people with cardiovascular diseases, hypotension and hypertension. Your doctor may recommend replacing black coffee with green tea.
- Secondly, a large amount of protein leads to a load on the kidneys, which can cause weakness and loss of strength, headaches, and the taste of acetone in the mouth.
The Japanese diet is contraindicated:
- nursing mothers and children;
- during physical exertion and hard work.
2. Preparing for a diet
Directly before the diet, it is necessary to arrange a fasting day: instead of breakfast and lunch, it is recommended to drink 2-3 glasses of kefir or milk, for dinner - a small portion of buckwheat or rice and a salad of fresh vegetables.
3. Foods while dieting
- The coffee used during the diet should be natural, as it contains antioxidants that support the body.
- It is recommended to cook meat and fish in a double boiler or fry in a small amount of oil.
- Olive oil is recommended for dressing vegetable salads.
A low-calorie diet cannot provide the body with the necessary substances, therefore, it is imperative to take a vitamin-mineral complex at the time.
5. Exit the diet
You can not arrange a "holiday of the stomach" about the exit from the diet and pounce on food.
The calorie content of the diet should be increased gradually: you need to add salt to food little by little, eat starchy and sweet in moderation.
The main rules of the Japanese diet:
- Accurately observe the diet by day, do not confuse the sequence of days.
- Use only products listed on the menu.
- Drink 1. 5 liters of fluid daily.
- Do not continue the diet for more than 14 days.
Reviews of the Japanese diet for 14 days
1. Reviews of doctors
The Japanese diet is considered very tough, so first of all you need to have a psychological attitude in order to prevent nervous breakdowns during the diet. The body receives stress due to low-calorie foods, and therefore temporary metabolic disorders and "food breakdowns" are possible.
2. Other reviews
First review: From my own experience I want to say that the Japanese diet is very difficult to endure. Especially in the early days. But the result is minus 9 kg. And 4 months have passed, and the weight has not returned, however, I keep fit with the help of fitness.
Second review: The toughest first 4 days. There was even dizziness. But the result paid off 100%. Minus 10 kilos! Yes, and the body is well cleansed during this time.
Third review: Of the benefits - delicious products, no need to choke on kefir or buckwheat. Of the minuses - weakness in the early days, a feeling of hunger. The result is minus 7 kilos.
As you can see, the effectiveness of the diet is confirmed in practice, however, when starting a diet, the main thing is to gather all your will into a fist and try not to break loose.
