Lee Guk Joo is a highly popular comedian/gag woman, you may have seen her on many Korean reality shows (if you watch them ^.<). On KBS 2TV's Emergency Escape 1, she revealed on a episode that she went on the Konjac Diet and lost 6kg in 2 weeks! 

So what is this Konjac diet that GukJoo speaks of? 

Konjac is a root food that has been used for thousands of years for weight lost in Japan. Konjac has almost zero calories so it acts a brilliant filler. You can eat as much konjac as you want throughout the diet, so you won't experience any hunger and can enjoy a full meal with fewer calories. Konjac is suitable for everyone as it's gluten free, 100% natural and non allergenic. It's commonly found in a noodle or cube form.

Konjac also provides many health benefits!

  • It supports insulin resistance, so helps to control blood sugar levels. Great for diabetics. 
  • Helps to cleanse the digestive systems and is effective against digestive troubles as 70% of Konjac is made of up non irritating fibres.
  • Lowers cholesterol and triglyceride levels
