K-Pop idols often share insight for weight loss tips. You might be surprised by some of the tricks and techniques idols use to keep their health and fitness in top shape!
1. T.O.P (BIGBANG)
T.O.P went on a red bean diet to shed his extra pounds. Red beans in tea form contain a lot of calcium which aids the body in the excretion of sodium from the system. Also, having a few spoons of boiled red beans helps curb your appetite and will make you feel satiated and content!
2. Heechul (Super Junior)
Tofu is extremely high in protein and other nutrients and can quickly fill you up even though it contains very few calories. Super Junior‘s Heechul ate a diet that consisted mostly of tofu to lose over 15 pounds in only two weeks.
3. Dasom (former SISTAR member)
Former SISTAR‘s Dasom revealed that she went on a “one food diet” to lose over 20 pounds in 3 weeks and the super-food responsible for this weight loss was cucumbers. A cucumber is extremely low in calories and consists mostly of water. It also contains high amounts of calcium, which aids your body in the excretion of unwanted waste. Dasom ate cucumbers all day and felt very refreshed and healthy!
IU has never been quite considered overweight, but she decided to go on a diet wanting an even slimmer figure. Apples are high in dietary fiber but low in calories. IU enjoyed eating an apple with every meal to get the extra nutrients and feel healthier.
5. Seolhyun (AOA)
Chicken breasts are high in protein and low in calories. Seolhyun‘s dietary plan was based around eating 1 to 2 chicken breasts per meal along with vegetables and fruit. Now, she boasts a perfect, glam figure the nation loves.
6. Park Bom (former 2NE1 member)
Park Bom‘s secret to her gorgeous figure is watermelons! Watermelons are 90% water (as the name suggests) and eating watermelons can help curb your appetite.
7. Park Boram
Park Boram went on a strict tomato-only diet to lose weight as quickly as possible. While it might sound extreme, tomatoes are very healthy and the fruit/vegetable-only “cleanse” is good for the body and digestive system when done correctly.
8. Seohyun (Girls’ Generation)
Seohyun‘s love for sweet potatoes is well known among her fans, so what benefits do these have? Sweet potatoes are extremely filling while containing a very low amount of calories. They are also high in vitamin E which aids in bettering your blood flow.
9. Sandeul (B1A4)
Salad is the most common weight-loss magic food out there, but sometimes it’s hard to eat vegetables without any dressing. B1A4‘s Sandeul chose lentil beans and fruits to complement the salad, resulting in an amazing 20-pound loss!
10. B.A.P’s Himchan
B.A.P‘s Himchan went on a cleanse, using the “detox juice” that went widely viral and popular as a weight-loss method in Korea. Himchan shared, while on a radio show, that he drank the vegetable-and-fruit blend three times a day for three days and felt greatly replenished and rejuvenated.
