Scientists say that the beauty gene does not exist, but how they then explain the appeal of Japanese women?
European women continue searching for the key to the beauty of these women in their nutrition, rather, a very rough idea of it.
The minimalist geisha diet fashionable became a real fashionable trend, even though it allows consuming only three products in exchange for getting rid of 3-7 kg.

Geisha Diet promises to bring you close to the ideal in just five days.
However, becoming a real mistress of the tea house takes years of efforts and hard training.
Diet without an address from girls without an age:
- It’s hard to resist the allure of the exotic.
Japan residents are impressed with the eyes, feminine forms and blonde hair of the European women, and those, in turn, admire the fragile and delicate beauty of Japanese women.
Geisha is a very special story. Representatives of this unique profession continue fascinating and inspiring even their compatriots, which should have already been used to them (ladies-mistresses are officially working in Japan since the 18th century). While as the foreigners are truly and completely hypnotized by them.
The image of a geisha is a recognized standard of the mysterious female attractiveness.
Apparently, that is why any discussion of “brand” eating system of geisha is abiding interest. It is assumed that by organizing their menu according to the rules of Japanese damsels, any woman can get part of their appeal.
Geishas were associated with the super popular Japanese diet for 14 days, and recently the special geisha diet also gained popularity.
Alas, it has no historical roots. The meal plan was composed and put into circulation by anonymous “popular nutritionists”. Yet, like many other stringent express diet that have no authors managed to acquire a lot of fans.
Indeed, in determining the priorities of visible results that can be achieved quickly, often give a hundred points ahead any doubts on the usefulness and safety of such weight loss in just five days on a very meager menu.
However, many nutritionists believe that any weight loss, even without being maintained for a long time, provides health benefits, especially for heart and blood vessels.
In addition, fast diet often serve as a push, followed by a more than measured and thoughtful change of eating habits that led to the emergence of excess weight.
The choice of diet is a personal matter of the person that tries to lose weight.
The main thing is to consult with your doctor and make sure that the planned diet has no contraindications for you!
What Geishas Eat?
The main products of the fast Geisha diet for weight loss are:
- Green tea,
These products not only have the undisputed Asian flavor, but also are among the well-known slimming products.
Many fasting days, renowned for their effect (e.g., Queen Margaret diet) are based on these products.
The third kind of food that Geisha diet allows is:
- whole cow’s milk.
Here’s what you should know about it:
- before the beginning of XX century, the Japanese have not tried any “cow” products, other than beef itself, which is why many of today’s inhabitants of the island have lactose intolerance.
In Japan, they also don’t drink milk today, but really love “live” fermented milk products, in which the lactose is already digested and does not cause any unpleasant symptoms.
Green tea in the diet of a Geisha
Green tea for weight loss is used quite often, but, alas, often completely wrong. Some tea varieties are indeed capable of accelerating the lipid metabolism and suppress hunger, as well as bringing a lot of health benefits, but only with proper brewing. Keep this in mind and always brew your teat the right way.
Geisha Diet Menu for 5 days
Like any strict weight loss method, Geisha diet should be preceded by the “entering” stage:
- during a week, smoothly cut back caloric intake and the amount of food, as well as give up sauces, sugar, and alcohol.
During this preparatory period, give preference to simple natural dishes, like soups and vegetable salads. This will help you shift to serious restrictions of the 5-day diet in a smooth manner.
Geisha Diet involves 3 meals a day. Snacks are prohibited. You will also have to give up:
- seasonings and other additives that may come to mind when looking by the menu.
The diet schedule is the same for all five days:
- 2 cups (total not more than 500 ml) of green tea mixed with milk
A serving (250 grams) of cooked brown rice + a glass of warm milk
- A serving of boiled brown rice, a cup of green tea mixed with milk.
You are allowed to drink non-carbonated water without any restrictions on Geisha diet.
Moreover, it is important to drink at least 1.5 liters of water a day to improve the intestinal peristalsis, which can be disrupted by rice consumption.
In between meals you also can drink 1-2 cups of green tea more, but without milk.
True Secrets Of Geisha Diet For Weight Loss
It is more or less clear that both Japanese diet and Geisha Diet very little resembles real nutrition of the inhabitants of country of the rising sun. Only the poor in medieval Japan ate just rice and tea.
Even though they were not threatened by extra weight, it is unlikely anyone would want to be like a peasant, tortured with work and malnutrition.
The traditional diet of Japanese women actually does include rice and green tea (loose-leaf sencha and matcha powder), but the similarity with the Geisha diet ends at this very point.
The islanders, who manage to magically resist age and excess weight, daily eat:
It is a root vegetable, also known as konjac and cognac (not to be confused with a drink), which is known to Europeans only a few years and mainly through the efforts of the nutritionist Pierre Duke, who is the main world expert on the issue of low-caloric food search.
Konnyaku contains rubbery Glucomannan, which is a carbohydrate with an extremely long chain of assimilation, which in addition, provides a sense of well-fed stomach.
Konnyaku flour in Japan is widely used in the production of desserts.
One small jelly cake, eaten with a pot of tea, resolves the issues of hunger and cravings for sweets for a long time.
Wood shiitake mushrooms, Japanese oyster hiratake and delicious matsutake, not amenable to artificial breeding, are an important part of the Japanese diet and food culture.
Mushrooms not only give a refined flavor to any savory food, but are also a unique source of:
- bioavailable protein,
- B group vitamins,
- substances that take care of your beauty and youth.
All this is topped of with a very low calories content (nutritional value of 100 g shiitake is about 20 kcal).
Fish and algae
Japanese traditionally consume annually about 70 kg of fish. In Europe, this figure is almost two times lower!
Marine fish is an indispensable source of:
- omega-3 fatty acids, necessary for health and harmony,
- low-fat protein,
Algae contain not only fiber that cleanses the intestines, but also rare minerals and vitamins in a high concentration, as well as pantothenic acid, and riboflavin that help your body produce energy.
Different varieties of cabbage
Algae are often called seaweed and used in various salads instead of cabbage, yet Japanese also love the “land” cabbage.
Their menu almost every day includes:
- green cabbage,
- bok choy.
In other words, all members of the Brassicaceae plant genus, which are fantastic sources of antioxidants and vitamins and essential fighters for heart health and thin waist.
