Another reason is that these fruits contain resistant starch - a type of fiber that cause a feeling of satiety and inhibit the absorption of some carbohydrates. Room temperature water, said Hitoshi Watanabe, improves digestion and reduces hunger. It is necessary to have dinner before 8 pm and avoid dessert after dinner. If you feel that you are very hungry, you are allowed to eat for lunch a piece of fruit. Every day you must go to bed before midnight. The meaning of this advice is that through research proved the link between sleep loss and obesity.

Breakfast should consist of one or more of bananas (as many as required by the body for its saturation) and one cup of water.

For lunch permitted eat any food from Japanese cuisine to your taste.

During lunch, if there is hunger, allowed small sweet snacks.

At dinner, as well as for dinner - meals of your choice, with no dessert until 8 pm.
