Have you watched the SBS Documentary called “My Japanese Weight Loss” yet?
The film featured Craig Anderson, who lost 25kg , making his way through Japan, seeking to discover traditional and healthy Japanese food options with a fellow filmmaker that grew up in Japan.
Here are the top 4 factors contributing to Craig’s weight loss from the SBS article!
1) The first factor is balancing greens, protein and carbs because even though you might be eating traditional foods, you might not be prioritising the right nutrients.
2) In saying this, Craig also believes eating traditional foods offers great boundaries, restricting you from the “Westernised”, and sometimes unhealthy, take on different cuisines, being the second factor.
3) Portion control. On the contrary to what Craig first though, Sumo wrestlers exercise regularly and eat relatively healthy foods. But the key for Sumo wrestlers gaining all that weight is portion size, so if you are looking at maintaining or losing weight, portion control is key.
4) The final factor to Craig’s weight loss is his new-found love for GREEN TEA. Possessing antioxidants, the caffeine source also acts as a detoxifying source that encourages the lowering of cholesterol and blood sugar levels, actually burning more calories to encourage weight loss!
As you might already know, MATCHA has much better effects compared to GREEN TEA! But make sure you are having the RIGHT green tea or matcha green tea. (Check out my blogpost here for matcha buying tips)
