The IU diet and her weight loss explained
- January 31, 2021
The following is the diet IU goes through, when she has to loose weight quickly. For example, before a photo shoot or before filming. So please take in mind that this is not a long term fix for your daily diet and should not be done without consulting your house doctor. The IU diet is basically structured like this:
- 1 apple for breakfast
- 1 sweet potato for lunch
- 1 proteine shake for dinner
This is really not much to eat, when you consider that Kpop idols also have an extreme exercise and practice routine. The three meals together make for about 700 calories a day, which could vary depending on the portion shake she was drinking for lunch. We are not sure which protein shake IU was drinking during her diet, but we would recommend a misugaru shake, if you want to stick with Korean food.
As you can see, this is not a long term fix for your daily food intake and IU herself admitted that she received treatment for bulimia, in the past. So anybody who wants to copy her diet, should be aware of the risks and should consult a doctor about this.
This is quite the extreme Kpop diet and we don’t recommend you be on this weight loss experience for long. What we alternatively recommend for you is a healthy Korean diet that will provide you with tasty and healthy food, while you loose weight in the long term.
