K-Pop Idol Diet Tips You Should Follow 2

K-Pop music and culture quickly gained massive popularity worldwide and are still growing today. Germany is no stranger to the “Hallyu” wave either; Korean music, drama, food, and beauty are becoming hot trends in the country. Universities offering subjects like Korean Studies have also begun to see more students, likely motivated by the rise of K-Pop and Korean culture. Goethe University professor Yonson Ahn notes that the industry’s diverse and novel aspects attract fans, and some wish to emulate their favorite idols and groups. Not only does this manifest in performing and music, but even with lifestyle choices like dieting and exercise.

While K-Pop diets can help people adjust their eating habits, some tend to be on the extreme side. They may offer quick results, but they can also lead to unhealthy habits and mindsets if one isn’t careful. Instead of taking more drastic approaches, here are some K-Pop diets and tips you can follow:

Eating with less stress

Stress is inevitable in life, but it should be avoided during mealtime. According to scientifically-backed abnehmen tipps, people with higher levels of the stress hormone cortisol tend to weigh more, have a larger waist size, and have a higher BMI. Weight loss and dieting can be significant sources of stress, which doesn’t help with shedding pounds or leading a healthier lifestyle.

Instead of stressing about your weight or the number of calories you’re consuming, be compassionate with yourself and take on a positive mindset while you eat. V of BTS follows this habit, emphasising the importance of a stress-free mealtime. He says thinking happy thoughts while eating helps him stay fit and healthy, even without extreme diets.

Eat for energy

Food is vital for giving you energy, precisely what idols need when gearing up for a performance. Instead of skipping meals or eating too little, you should eat nutritious and energy-boosting foods three times a day, snacks included! Girl group ITZY recently revealed what they eat when preparing for big performances, and their meal plans are full of nutritious options that energise them.

They eat fruit like watermelons, strawberries, and apples for breakfast, and their fibre helps slow down the body’s absorption of sugar. Fruits like bananas, citrus fruits, and avocados also provide great energy-boosting qualities. They eat stir-fried vegetable dishes with oyster sauce for lunch and roasted chicken breast and salad for dinner. Snacks are essential too, and anything from doughnuts to cherry tomatoes is their choices for a surge of energy.

Balance food and fitness

It’s no surprise that K-Pop idols need to be in shape to help them keep up with performances and their busy lifestyles, so many have extensive fitness plans or hit the gym regularly. Cardio is the usual workout for idols; this includes routines such as HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) which involve high-intensity movements, and LISS (Low-Intensity Steady State), which involves exercises like brisk walking. Regular endurance training also helps them lose weight and boost endurance for more energy and stamina throughout the day.

K-Pop idol workouts can be pretty intense like their diets at times, but they balance that out by eating what they love! Boy group Seventeen gained a lot of attention for their fit bodies, and many members are gym buffs who love to work out and play sports every day, but they also eat food they enjoy regularly. The members often eat salads and nuts for good nutrition but also love food like fried chicken, noodles, and meat. Moderation is an integral part of keeping fit, so while you can enjoy your favourites, make sure to eat a balanced diet and get a good amount of exercise.
