A Japanese weight management guidebook “Understood! No Weight Gain Eating Like This!” talks about what food you eat can influence in which body part(s) you gain extra weights. The famous picture, “Eat this and you get weight here,” was a phenomenon in Twitter once.
According to some Tweets, Japanese girls who followed the instructions in the book actually gained weight loss, such as a tinier waist or slimmer legs.
A form on foods you eat and corresponded body parts that may gain fats:
Foods you eat
Body parts that may gain fats
Green leafy vegs
Fried pork chops
Karaage (fried chicken)
Back of the knees
Fried potato products
Back of the ribs
Iced cream coffee
Back of lower legs
There is no scientific evidence proving the guideline, but nutritionists say cutting consumption of oil, fats and sugar like the picture suggests can help lose weight. Apart from controlling consumption of certain substances, some tips are also provided to help you lose weight.
1. Weight loss is a general concept of whole-body weight loss. If you want to lose weight in some of your body parts but not in others, exercises targeted on certain body parts are necessary.
2. The belly is most difficult to lose weight in, since it gains fats easily for forming natural protection of the organs inside. Fewer carbs consumption may help lose weight in the belly.
3. The chewing process is vital because it can lengthen your meal time, your satiety center in the lower hypothalamus sending signals of satiety, thus reducing the amounts of foods you consume.
4. Less than 7 hours of sleep may lead to obesity.
