Cheerleader Kim Junie gives herself a cheat day once a week where she can eat anything she wants. Her diet for the rest of the week consists of 400 grams of meat and carbs combined with a vegetable such as cherry tomatoes or cucumbers.
“On your cheat day, you don’t gain weight even if you eat to your heart’s content. That’s because you control your diet for 6 days. When it gets consumed that one time every 7 days, rather than going through as unhealthy food, it’s just like consuming some more calories.” — Kim Junie
Weighing in at just 42 kg (92.5 lbs), Chungha doesn’t actually follow a strict diet. Her diet philosophy is to just not stress too much over dieting, and instead just limit the foods you eat.
She believes binge eating is bad and it’s better to change out the typical diet foods with sweets or foods you enjoy if you’re feeling too much stress from dieting.
