The Japanese diet is considered one of the most effective and popular modern diets.
Why? Because in a fairly short period of time - 14 days you can get rid of 7-11 extra pounds.
Such a rapid 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 Japanese diet menu is quite low in calories due to its low carbohydrate content, which forces the body to burn its own layer of fat.
The main goal of the Japanese diet is to change the rhythm of metabolic processes in the body, which then allows you to maximize the effect of weight loss for 2-3 years.
The essence of the Japanese diet
The essence of the Japanese diet is foods with an increased amount of protein, which is provided 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. On the Japanese diet, you cannot eat:
- sugar and confectionery;
However, if you are used to drinking only coffee for breakfast and prefer meat and fish, the Japanese diet will not seem so difficult to you. In addition, one of the advantages of this diet is fermented milk products, fruits and vegetables allowed in the diet.
Fluid 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 significantly from each other in the composition of products. But if you have chosen one option, you should not "jump" to another if the first suddenly did not suit you for some reason.

Japanese diet and rules
1. Consultation with a doctor
- First, the Japanese diet provides for the constant consumption of black coffee, which may be contraindicated for people suffering from cardiovascular diseases, hypotension and hypertension. Your doctor may recommend replacing black coffee with green tea.
- Second, a large amount of protein puts a load on the kidneys, which can lead to 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. Prepare for a diet
Immediately before the diet, it is necessary to arrange a day of fasting: instead of breakfast and lunch, it is recommended to drink 2-3 glasses of kefir or milk, for dinner - a small portion of buckwheator rice and a salad of fresh vegetables.
3. Foods during a diet
- 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 water bath 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, so it is imperative to take a vitamin-mineral complex at this time.
5. Quit the diet
You cannot organize a "holiday of the stomach" on leaving the diet and throwing yourself 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 foods in moderation.
The main rules of the Japanese diet:
- Accurately observe the diet by day, do not confuse the sequence of days.
- Use only the products indicated on the menu.
- Drink 1. 5 liters of fluid per day.
- Do not continue the diet for more than 14 days.
Reviews of the Japanese diet for 14 days
1. Opinions of doctors
The Japanese diet is considered very harsh, so first of all you have to have a psychological attitude in order to avoid nervous breakdowns during the diet. The body experiences stress from low-calorie foods, and therefore temporary metabolic disorders and "dietary breakdowns" are possible.
2. Other notices
First assessment: From my own experience I would like to say that the Japanese diet is very difficult to bear. Especially in the early stages. 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 assessment: The first 4 most difficult days. There was even dizziness. But the result paid off 100%. Minus 10 kg! Yes, and the body is well cleansed during this time.
Third opinion: Of the pluses - delicious products, no need to choke on kefir or buckwheat. Of the minuses - weakness in the first days, 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 willpower in a fist and try not to go wild.
