And they apparently are also advertisements for a weight-loss pill, so... you know. Take them with a grain of salt.

1000% fake.

To be fair though, 50kg is considered pretty obese in Japan. Watch out....

I used to read a lot of Japanese fashion magazines for the past few years, and there would always be a diet section where they revealed how their models lost weight... It used to interest me a lot more than the fashion section, and I would force my Japanese friend to translate them for me :wtf:

Anyway, here are some of inspiring before and afters - I often found that the actual diet tips weren't particularly helpful since most of it was quite obvious. They mainly said that they didn't eat in between meals and stuck to around 1000-1200 calories a day and exercised more...



This girl was known for her "water diet" which consisted of drinking water in between meals when she's hungry, which is a bit deceiving :hmm:

Oh, come on, is not like 44 kg is a lot.... that girl got down to 37 kg.... but still, it is true that Japanese girls are quite small...

In Japan, being skinny is in, being normal or fat is the true disaster :grin:

So true! We just had family friends come back from China, and the women said to me "All the girls there are even smaller than you"

Asian thinspo is where its at!


Also, when i was in china, i noticed that it is totally ok to tell someone they put on weight or look fatter than normal.

I had a chinese bf and we travelled in asia a lot and it seemed the same everywhere regarding weight.

I like it.

there are a lot of cultural/social differences between the asian world and ours...besides the glaringly obvious and very enviable fact that they have smaller builds.

Yes, whenever I go home. Mom: you look fatter than usual. Have you been eating out? :lol: and, my fave: I should feed you less to make you skinnier and prettier.

If they are real, it's great for them. I find it hard to get inspired by them, simply because they are so short and none of their weights are okay for me to obtain. A before of 44kg is still a kilo lighter than my UGW, simply because I'm a foot taller at least..
I have a Japanese friend who weighs 35kg. She is 4'11.
