Weight reduction: Japanese water therapy helps with weight loss
Japanese water therapy is a method used to combat various health problems. In addition, this diet helps to lose weight. We explain how it works.
Lose weight and improve your health
Water is essential. Nutritionists are advised to take at least 1.5 liters of fluid daily. In heat or heavy physical exercise more. Some nutritionists also recommend starting the day with a glass of cold lemon water to boost metabolism and boost the immune system. Many follow this advice in Japan. There is some type of water therapy that is known to contribute to weight loss and improved health.
Drink water immediately after waking up
As explained on the "NDTV Food" portal, Japanese water therapy helps to cleanse the stomach and strengthen the digestive system.
Traditional Japanese medicine recommends drinking the water as soon as you wake up early.
This not only helps with weight loss, but also in treating various health problems.
For example, nutritionist Victoria Udoh writes in a post on Linkedin that studies have shown that drinking water in the morning on an empty stomach cleanses the body's own system.
According to the expert, water therapy relieves symptoms such as constipation and high blood pressure and can also help with diseases such as diabetes.
And it helps with stress reduction.
This is how water therapy works
The "NDTV Food" portal explains how Japanese water therapy works:
As soon as you wake up in the morning, drink four to six glasses of water, each containing 160 to 200 milliliters, on an empty stomach. Ideally the water should be drunk at room temperature or cold. You can also squeeze in some fresh lemon juice.
Brush your teeth after drinking and avoid eating or drinking for at least 45 minutes. Then you can continue your diet as usual.
Do not eat or drink for at least two hours after each meal of the day.
Older people who are suffering from a serious condition should start therapy with a glass of water daily and gradually increase the number of glasses.
If you are unable to drink all four glasses at once, wait a few minutes between each glass of water to pause your stomach.
The therapy recommends that the above tips be part of the daily routine.
In addition, the portal draws attention to further recommendations:
Walk in peace for at least an hour every day to speed up your metabolism.
Gargle every night at least 4-5 times with hot water and salt before going to bed.
Avoid eating and drinking while standing, as this interferes with the digestive process.
Cook your food properly before swallowing it, as it helps to digest food better.
The feeling of hunger is reduced
Although German experts point out that frequent drinking of water reduces the feeling of hunger, but one should expect from the water diet not surprising.
Success depends to a large extent on the individual design of the diet, ie the implementation of the diet and exercise.
It is positive that this method, which cannot really be called a diet, does not expect a yo-yo effect because it does not specify a strict program. (Ad)
