Isetan Shinjuku will hold an event regarding low-carb diets on Oct 11.

As its name suggest, a low-carb diet focuses on food that contain low levels of carbohydrates. This diet is popular for its beauty and health benefits, and in Japan, medical doctor Satoru Yamada was one of the first to focus on this diet. Yamada says that in addition to the health benefits, a low-carb diet is easy to implement.

As long as the carbohydrate content is controlled, it is possible to eat fried foods and meats in moderation, which minimizes stress for the person engaging in the diet.

According to Yamada, the favorable carbohydrate content in one meal should be between 20 to 40 g. A half of a serving of rice or a half of a toast contains about 20 g of carbohydrates. Yamada advises people not to force themselves into the diet, but rather start by becoming conscious of the carbohydrate content and lowering the amounts where possible.
