Why you shouldn’t take Korean diet pills and what to do instead

Korean Weight Loss

Korean diet pills seem to be a nice shortcut for a lot of people, who want to lose weight quickly. I understand that many of you would like to kickstart your diet with a little helper. Trust me, we all have been there. It just sounds so good, losing a few pounds by taking a few pills. But there are problems that cannot be fixed with a pill, no matter how many good reviews that product has. And diet pills from Korean are no exception.

I want to give you a few reasons, why you shouldn’t take Korean diet pills, to spare you problems and grieve. But I will also give you an alternative to the pills which will help you to finally lose weight and be healthy.

Lets start with the three reasons why you shouldn’t take Korean diet pills:

1. Only a quick fix

Sure, you can take diet pills and it might help you to lose weight for a while. A few days, maybe even weeks. But as long as you don’t change your entire diet, you will always come back to the starting point. Some might call that the jo-jo-effect, I just call it a bad diet. If you want to fix your weight for a short period of time, go ahead and purchase a couple of pills. But if you really want to lose weight and slim down, you should rather invest the money and the time into something that will actually work longterm and change your life.

2. Risk your health

Yes, there are pills which seem to be save and approved by certain institutes and standards. But they are mainly just blocking your appetite, meaning you just don’t want to eat. And your body needs food to make sure that he can go an entire day. Don’t do this to yourself and your body. It will not last anyway and it is super unhealthy.

The even bigger risk with Korean diet pills, or any other, is the danger of health-threatening products. What if you try that amazing new pill that seems to help everybody and you afterwards have to live with horrible consequences because the product ist just a mixture of bad ingredients. And some of them might even be dangerous to you. An increase in heart attack risk is one of these dangers, to just name one example. Do you really want to take this kind of risk? You don’t have too.

3. Getting addicted

This is not only a problem for people who are easily addicted to anything. It could also become a problem for you. Some of the ingredients are highly addictive, which makes sense because they want to sell you a lot of them. So stay away from them in the first place and don’t take such a risk.

I hope that these three reasons are enough to keep you off any Korean diet pills. If you are still interested in some pills, please comment on this article and some of our readers might be able to give you some advice and share experiences with you.

What can you do instead of taking a Korean diet pill?

Looking around on our website, you can find a lot of helpful advice and case studies from Kpop idols and how they lost weight. Read some of them and learn from their lessons.

Other than that there is only one way for you to get that sexy, skinny Korean body that you have been desiring for years. Change your diet! This doesn’t mean that you have to starve or that you have to quit your favourite food. It just means that you have to make a few small changes in your life. Our article about the Kpop Diet might do wonders for you.

Don’t get me wrong, some Koreans and Kpop idols do take diet pills to lose fat. And Kpop singers are well known to starve themselves to the limit. But you should stay away from these ways of losing weight. We recommend you go the long distance and you will get rewarded a slim and healthy body eventually.

It is all about your daily habits, the food you eat, how much you exercise and how much you really want that desirable body. And you don’t have to risk your health to get to your goals. Please let me know, in the comments, about any experiences you had with diet pills and what our readers should do instead.

7 Diet Lessons You Can Learn From SNSD

SNSD Diet Plan

The girls from SNSD are not only famous for their wonderfully bubble gum like music, but also for their fascinating ways of dieting. We talked about the SNSD diet before and decided, due to great demand, to give you more information on this particular Kpop diet. We decided to start it off with 10 diet lessons we all can learn from Girls Generation. There will be more content in the future, but let’s get started with this list of actionable weight loss advice.

SNSD Diet

1. The right amount of food matters

You will not lose a considerable amount of weight, if you are not able to control your meal portions. You have to be as strict with yourself as Jessica was reportedly with herself by only eating half an egg instead of an entire one. This might sound crazy, but it shows that you have to limit your portions.

2. Eat more than 3 meals a day

Tiffany went on record and said that the girls „definitely eat more than 3 meals a day“ and specifying it by adding that “We eat 5 meals a day.” Which is reasonable and understanding if you take in consideration that they workout a lot. So rather go for five small meals than for three big ones. According to research, it is very healthy to spread out your meals throughout the day.

SNSD Diet

3. You have to exercise

Hyoyeon mentioned that the girls „exercise when we think we have gained weight“. I think that this is quite an understatement though. Because the girls are busy with their dance workouts every day and this is a fantastic way to burn some calories. Tiffany also does yoga which seems to help her quite a bit to stay in shape.

4. Genetics and metabolism matter

A strict diet and a hard workout regime will not have the same results for everybody. All members of Girls Generation seem like they have the perfect metabolism. But not everybody is that lucky. So it might take you some more work than it takes them.

5. Drink a lot of water

Tiffany said in an interview with Elle Magazine that she drank 1500ml of water everyday before a video shooting. It is also backed by scientific research that the right amount of water can have a big impact on your weight loss goals.

SNSD Diet Plan

6. You are not a girl group member (supposedly)

When starting your diet, you have to take in consideration that you don’t have the same schedule as the girls from SNSD. You don’t have to make it through 3,5 hours of a dance-heavy show on a regular basis. Meaning. you have to adjust your diet to your life.

7. You need a good motivation

Some of the girls don’t have to worry about staying in shape at all. Others such as Jessica and Tiffany did have to put a lot of effort in their diet. And they did it because they knew they had to. They wanted to look good n their videos and on their tour. They were really motivated. You will need a very strong motivation as well.

How to achieve Kpop weight loss

Kpop Diet

If you want to achieve Kpop weight loss, you should read the following lines very closely. There is no magical shortcut to get the Korean idol body of your dreams. But if you follow a few rules you can set yourself up for success. And we are not talking about starving yourself to death. We are talking about losing weight the healthy and fun way. I am with you when you think that some Kpop idols go to the extreme for their wight loss. But that doesn’t mean that you should do the same.

Because the good thing about not being a Kpop idol is that you have more time to lose weight and get into shape. You probably don’t have a concert tour scheduled for next week, where you have to be in perfect shape. This gives you the chance to diet a little bit differently. And luckily so. But how can you make Kpop weight loss possible without starving? Let’s have a look at that.

If you want to lose weight, you have to realize that two important things will play a huge role for you or anybody who tries to diet. We are talking about nutrition and exercising. There is nothing more important than these two factors, if you want to lose some pounds. The good thing is that it doesn’t have to be complicated.

The right nutrition for Kpop weight loss

We wrote an article on the different Kpop diets which are trendy at the moment and we also had a closer loot at how the members of SNSD prefer to diet. Have a look at their ways and decide, if you want to go the same road. But as we said in the beginning of this article, you don’t have to rush your diet. Especially, if you decide to try the Korean diet. We would recommend that you have a look at our list of the 45 best Korean food recipes first. Then choose your favorite recipes and create yourself a meal plan for the next two weeks. Also make sure that you take our Korean diet tips very seriously.

If you follow those tips you will see some change already and it will hopefully give you the strength to continue your journey to greatness. But the right nutrition will not be enough.

How to exercise for Kpop weight loss

If you really want to lose that nasty pounds on your hips, you have to do a little bit more. Meaning that it is time for you to start exercising. We already gathered the 5 best Kpop Workout videos for you, so you can just follow along and lose weight. You will mostly see dance workouts because that is exactly what many Kpop idols do. But if dancing is not really your thing, you should know that there are a lot of other opportunities out there. Play Volleyball, Basketball, soccer, badminton or any sport that you truly love. If you don’t like any sports it is time for you to choose one. Here is a list of sports that should help you to find the right exercise for your. Other than that you should take every chance to go out and exercise. It is the best and healthiest way to lose weight and you will see the positive changes after a short period of time.

If you want to you can also lift some weights. But take in mind that to much weight lifting might be counter productive, in case you are a woman. Because you don’t want to become a bodybuilder or do you? If you are a man just lift as much as you can. Because your Kpop idols do the same thing.

We hope that you will follow our tips and that you see success in the near future. Just be committed and stay motivated. Losing weight is a journey and you are only at the beginning. We hope to see you at the finish line.

Korean Diet Plan

Korean Diet

So how does a Korean diet plan look like? Sure, you could eat kimchi all day, everyday. Add some rice from time to time and you might lose weight in the process. But that would be boring, wouldn’t it? That’s at least what we thought and that’s why we got out there to find a better way of dieting.

The Korean diet has been around for at least as long as Korea itself exist. Probably longer. And we wanted to find out, which parts of the Korean cuisine would benefit our health, fitness and weight loss the most.

We love Korean food and no not all Korean cuisine is good and healthy for you or will help you to lose weight. But when you want to lose weight and get healthier, you should definitely try out our Korean diet plan. Because it will make your meals healthier and more delicious. And you will lose weight in the process.

Are you interested? Then let’s jump right into the Korean diet.

Korean Diet Plan

When creating a diet plan, it is important to know that there is no magical formular for everybody. That being said, what you can do is to set yourself up for the best outcome possible. We will help you with your Korean diet plan and will introduce our version of the plan which can be easily followed by you.

We don’t like to cut down on food to much. That means we have to be careful what we eat. And we have to exercise regularly. And we think that this is a good trade-off to make. It is anyway rather difficult to pass on all the delicious Korean food around us. What does that mean for you? If you want to follow the Korean diet you should be willing to exercise. But don’t worry, because we have an amazing Kpop Workout for you. It is seriously a lot of fun.

Other than that, let’s talk about the food you can actually eat. Do we really have to monitor every bit of food? Not really. Why? Because we make sure that our portions are not to big. It took some time to figure out the right size of the portions. But once that was established, we were ready to go and to shred some pounds.

You might ask yourself, if it is just about the portion size. And rightfully so. We hardly eat fast food, at least the western definition of it. You can find so many different street food vendors in Korea, it is crazy. And we think that this Korean street food can be seen as fast food. Just take something like Tteokbooki. It is sweet, it consists of pressed rice and who knows what else they put in there to make it so delicious. But I have to tell you that I have Tteokbooki every week. It might not help me to lose weight, but it definitely does not make me fat.

All we want to say is that even the fast food in Korea is better for a good diet than for example the one in the United States. Why would you bother if you don’t live in the States? Because the western fast food chains are everywhere. And we are sure that you visit them from time to time. We are not saying that you cannot eat at McDonalds ever again. We are just saying that you should monitor your food habits a little bit better and rather have some nice street food if possible.

Korean Diet Plan

Let’s give you some advice on how to approach the Korean diet plan and what you can expect in the comming weeks and months. Shall we?

Set realistic expectations. This one is important. You should make sure that you have realistic goals. Because you will not be able to lose 20 kg in the next three days and it is a hard work to look like your favorite Kpop idol. If you really want to look as good as some of them, than you have to be aware that it will take some time.

Pick the Korean Diet. There are so many diets out there and it is easy to get lost in them. Which one is the right for one for me and how will I ever figure that out? The Korean diet is a traditional way of eating and it does not come with all the restrictions which make it impossible to follow any diet. This diet should be your first and last choice.

Create good habits. While on diet you have to create good habits. You have to make this diet your lifestyle. Eating this way should become a habit. Exercising should become a habit. When you stop thinking that it is a diet, you will be right where you have to be to achieve lasting Kpop weight loss.

Tailor the diet to your needs. The good thing about the Korean diet is that you can just tailor the diet to your preferences. You can eat whatever Korean food you want. Meaning that you have a big variety of food to choose from. So you can eat happily whatever you desire. And this way, everybody will feel comfortable with this diet.

Don’t forget to exercise. We mentioned it before and we will talk about it again. Exercising has to be a crucial part of your diet. You can be strict with the food as long as you want to. Without some exercising your body will never look Kpop ready. Just choose your workout and stick to it. If it gets boring, try another one. Just never give up on it.

If you keep these five tips in mind, you will eventually succeed. Because the Korean diet is rather easy to follow. And to make it even easier for you, we will share our Korean diet plan with you. Don’t worry if some of the ingredients are not at your disposal. Just get some alternatives and stick to the plan as much as possible. You will be fine. Rice is the most important part of each meal in Korea. A meal without rice is not a real meal. But we know that it can get a little bit difficult to have rice for every meal. So we tried to find some alternatives for you.

If you don’t have Kimchi at home or you are not sure how to make vegetable side dishes, just have a look for recipes around the internet.

If you cannot get used to Kimchi please don’t quit the diet plan entirely. Just leave the Kimchi out and replace it with other vegetables, salad or fruits. And if this is not working for you, you should try meat instead. But try to stick to the plan first and then take it from there.

Is that everything? It cannot be that easy, can it? Well, it is like we said. The Korean diet is healthy, delicious and without a lot of restrictions. Yes you have to cut down on chocolate and sweets. But you will not miss to much after a while, because all the tasty fruits will satisfy your sweet tooth. Yes you should not drink soda and rather choose water in the supermarket. But you will not miss the overly sweet and sugary soda drinks either, as soon as the Korean diet plan becomes a habit. Meaning, it will be your life and not just any diet anymore.

If this whole Korean diet thing sounds good to you, we highly recommend that you have a look at our Korean diet book. This book will show you, how you can lose weight the Korean way.

If you like our Korean Diet Plan please feel free to share it with your friends. And please don’t hesitate if you have any questions or remarks on the diet plan itself. Are you looking for a faster alternative? The 2-Week Diet might be just the right solution for your weight loss problems.

The Banana Diet

What is the banana diet? 

The banana diet is rather simple and can be accomplished by everybody. This is how it works: For breakfast you have one banana and water. That is everything. Nothing more. For lunch you can have whatever you want, as long as the portion is not super-sized. And for dinner you can also have your favorite meal. Just keep the size of the portion in mind. That’s it. Sounds very easy. And it is pretty simple, because you don’t have to count calories or take care of a lot of things. Also you don’t have to give up on anything with this Kpop diet.

Does the Banana Diet work?

The banana diet is quite popular all over the world and not only Kpop idols such as Seo In Young claim that they lost some pounds in a few weeks. This diet works because of one simple reason. You basically cut out one entire meal. Because having a banana or two is not a full meal. It is more like a snack. And if you know Koreans, they love to have fruits as snacks throughout the day. So if you want to try a diet, this one might be just for you.

Sweet Potato Diet

And many Kpop idols such as Jung Hye Young, the members of Secret and IU make sweet potatoes a crucial part of their diet.

Paper Cup Diet

What is the paper cup diet?

The paper cup diet is maybe the most famous of the Kpop diets and is based on a certain portion per meal. Just take three paper cups or any small sized cups and fill them up with the following food. One cup with rice, one cup with vegetables or meat and one cup with fruits. Three times a day. This makes it super simple to control your portion.

Does the paper cup diet work?

Nine Muses were the Kpop idols who started the paper cup diet and we are sure that this diet works. Because it makes it so easy to control your portions. And that’s what it all boils down too. But the amount of food might just be to less for your body to operate properly for an entire day. So take in mind that you have slightly bigger portions, when you have a hard day ahead of you.

It will be a totally different story. for men. They should just hit the gym as hard as possible. But to make sure that you can get the body you want, we put together a Kpop workout which will make you look amazing. Will it happen over night? Rather not. But with some dedication and some sweat we will make sure that you finally reach your goals.

But how does the perfect Kpop workout look like?

Let’s first look at some workouts which are done by some of the most famous Kpop idols. After that we will move on and explain, how you can model your workout around their exercise routines.

5. Yuri SNSD Workout

Watch how Yuri works out in the gym. When you are finished watching, you should get to the gym yourself and work out hard. I find her so inspiring and it really paid of for her to utilize the gym. You should do the same.

All the Kpop Workouts mentioned above will help you to get into form. If you have the time you should do all of them throughout the week. You can also choose your favorite and only do that specific one. If you for example want to work on your thighs only, you should try out the „Girls Generation“ workout a few times. But we recommend to do all of them, because it will otherwise become boring. And it is essential that you stay motivated.  Just have some fun doing the Kpop workouts and visualize the reason for your weigh loss desire.
