The IU diet and her weight loss explained

The IU diet is a weight loss journey that you should know more about and we will also show you, how you can implement her eating habits and exercise routine into your daily life. Learn how the IU diet plan looks like and make sure to include the right parts of it into your life.

But wait, who is IU? For the few who don’t know her, she is one of the most popular and most beloved Kpop idols of these days. And she is also one of the prettiest Korean celebrities out there. Before we get into the diet and exercise details, here are some body facts about IU, to make sure you know exactly how and if you can compare yourself to her:

  • Height: 162 cm
  • Weight: 45 kg

This is the IU Diet

The following is the diet IU goes through, when she has to loose weight quickly. For example, before a photo shoot or before filming. So please take in mind that this is not a long term fix for your daily diet and should not be done without consulting your house doctor. The IU diet is basically structured like this:

  • 1 apple for breakfast
  • 1 sweet potato for lunch
  • 1 proteine shake for dinner

This is really not much to eat, when you consider that Kpop idols also have an extreme exercise and practice routine. The three meals together make for about 700 calories a day, which could vary depending on the portion shake she was drinking for lunch. We are not sure which protein shake IU was drinking during her diet, but we would recommend a misugaru shake, if you want to stick with Korean food.

As you can see, this is not a long term fix for your daily food intake and IU herself admitted that she received treatment for bulimia, in the past. So anybody who wants to copy her diet, should be aware of the risks and should consult a doctor about this.

This is quite the extreme Kpop diet and we don’t recommend you be on this weight loss experience for long. What we alternatively recommend for you is a healthy Korean diet that will provide you with tasty and healthy food, while you loose weight in the long term. You should also check out this 2-Week diet that will change your life.

The Korean Diet is the solution

Alternatively to one apple, one sweet potato and one protein shake per day, we recommend our Korean diet plan, which will help you in a meaningful way. If you want a quick and not so healthy solution for your weight than the IU diet might be for you. But if you have a few more days of patience and some love for your health and body, you should really check out our diet plan.

Hyuna Weight Loss and Diet

Losing weight can be hard but some Kpop idols make it look so easy. The Hyuna weight loss is one of those cases. But was it really that easy for the former 4Minute member to lose all this weight? We will take a closer look at her diet, on the how and how fast Hyuna lost weight. The purpose is to show you how she did it and how you can copy it and integrate the Hyuna diet into your daily life. So you too can have the beautiful body you desire and deserve.

Here are some Hyuna body facts that might help you to put her weight loss into the right perspective. Don’t forget that everybody is different:)

Weight: 50 kg
Measurements: 86-63.5-86 cm
Dress Size: 6 (US)
Bra Size: 32B
Shoe Size: 9.5 (US)

Hyuna Weight Loss Secrets

If you followed Hyuna’s career you can see that she lost quite an amount of weight more than once. She, for example claimed, that she lost 17 Kilograms since primary school. Which is quite the achievement. But how did she do that? According to herself, she took the stairs instead of the elevator every time she had the choice. We think that is a great idea and very easy to implement into your daily life.

The other thing she did was a little bit more dramatic: She cut out all flour-based foods. Living in Korea, we can easily see how this is possible. Because most of the meals here are not made out of flour. Which makes it rather easy to follow this kind of diet. I

f you don’t live in Korea you might have some difficulties with this method though. Because, especially in the US and Europe, bread is the basic food you can get everywhere. And it might seem difficult at first to get around that. But it is definitely possible and if you want to achieve Hyuna weight loss, you can be successful this way. If you need some scientific proof or some explanation why you should cut out foods made out of flour read this book. It is full of good advice on how to eat healthier.

In addition to cutting out flour-based foods of her diet, Hyuna also decided to eat many small meals instead of a few big meals. You should try this out as well, for a few weeks and see if it helps you with your weight loss.

Finally, dancing had a huge impact on her weight loss. She danced and practised almost every day to make her dream of becoming a Kpop idol come true. That is great news, if you love dancing. Make sure to dance as much as you can and as hard as you can. Alone with friends, just with anybody. Be assured that you will lose weight this way.

If you are not into dancing, don’t worry! Any sport or exercise will help you during the Hyuna diet. How about soccer, basketball, tennis, pilates, yoga or some gym time? The most important thing is to do it regularly and to make it a part of your life.

Bonus: Hyuna also said that she lost all the weight because of Shin JungHwan who she was compared to back in the days. This motivated her even more to lose weight. What does that mean for you? It means that you need a motivation! Why do you want to lose weight? Ask yourself and let us know in the comments below. Motivation is key to fat loss, because their will be days when you don’t feel like exercising and you really want that cake or tasty bread. Your motivation will keep you going!

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.

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.

7 mistakes you make every time during your Kpop workout

Kpop Abs

You started your Kpop Workout and you have been doing it for quite a while now. But you somehow cannot see any major changes yet? You might be doing something wrong. That is why we would like to talk about the 10 mistakes you probably make every time during your Kpop workout. We will help you to correct these mistakes. That will give you the chance to finally get rid of those nasty pounds.

1. To much is to much

You are not doing yourself any favors if you are overdoing your workout. Yes it is good that you are committed to it and it is better than doing nothing. But if you workout to much to lose fat quickly, things will turn sour. You don’t have to lose all your weight within days. It is anyways not healthy this way. Set yourself a goal and workout accordingly. This will also prevent you from getting hurt.

2. You don’t have a plan

You need a Kpop workout plan to use your time wisely. It is important that you make a plan for yourself. It sounds more difficult than it actually is. Get some inspiration for a workout from our articles. It will take time to get the body you want. But with a good workout plan you will get there. Just let us know in the comments, if you need some help with that and we will get back to you.

3. You are not warming up

Beginners often skip the warm up or just keep it very short. But a good warm up is the basis for your workout. You need to get your body ready for the Kpop workout. This includes stretching and some cardio. This way you  will prevent injuries and lose weight at the same time. And your body will look leaner.

4. Running is your only cardio option

If you want to lose weight, you have to burn it with regular cardio workouts. It is that simple. But cardio workouts can get boring. Especially if you always do the same one. If you don’t want to go running anymore you should have a look for alternatives. And there are plenty alternatives you can consider. Basketball, swimming, soccer, tennis, volleyball, etc.

5. Unrealistic expectations

If you expect to look like a member of Girls Generation within the next week you might be in for a devastating let-down. Don’t set unrealistic goals. This doesn’t mean that you will neer get that beautiful shaped body. But it will take some time. Take this in mind. Otherwise you will have a hard time sticking to the Korean diet and your Kpop workout.

6. Incorrect form of the workout

By doing a workout wrong, you can not only be inefficient but also in for a injury. To avoid this you should get your execution right. Watch videos on how to workout right or get a personal trainer, if you want to be sure. A personal trainer can be very helpful, especially in the beginning of your journey.

7. Sleeping to less

Sleeping is an important part of your overall well-being. You need sleep to give your body enough time to rest from your Kpop workout. Additionally, a good amount of sleep will benefit your health tremendously.

8. You listen to the wrong workout songs

If you have the wrong workout songs, life can be difficult. But with the right music choice you will accomplish anything you desire. Check out our Kpop Workout Playlist for some very good ideas and inspiration.

If you avoid these 7 mistakes during your workout, you will see huge improvements. Let us know in the comments, if you do one of these workout mistakes. And if you want others to avoid them as well, please don’t hesitate to share this article.
