How many pieces of Sushi should I eat per meal?

Are you a tempura lover? Or is the dragon roll your absolute favorite? Don't can still eat some of your specialty favorites except you have to pay attention to your proportion and the time to eat them. For example, when I was experimenting the sushi diet, I started off by eating 4-6 pieces of California rolls for breakfast. For lunch, I would eat one of my favorites...6-8 pieces of the Eel Rolls. When it is dinner, I would go back to eating something more clean like 8-12 pieces of Salmon Roll dipped a little bit low sodium soy sauce and a little bit of wasabi. Nothing fried or with cream cheese. If you want to eat tempura, eel, dragon, crunchy calamari, spider, crispy spicy tuna, etc., do that for lunch. In general, I would stay away from any specialty sushis at night and eat them during the day. Enjoy your sushi!!

Is It Safe To Eat Sushi?

In general, most sushis are safe to eat. Although, there are some precautions that you must know before consuming raw fish. Some seafood contains levels of mercury. The FDA recommends that certain type of people should avoid the consumption of raw fish. These individuals includes: pregnant women, women who are nursing, older adults, individuals with weak immune systems, low stomach acidity, and allergic reaction to shellfish. Lastly, you want to be sure that it is a reputable sushi establishment. Whenever I go to a sushi restaurant, I usually pop my phone out and do a quick Yelp review. Many users will post their experience. Read through a few reviews and then decide.

One helpful hint, if you're eating raw fish, it may be a benefit to add a little wasabi and ginger. I heard that wasabi may help kill any bacteria.

White Rice versus Brown Rice Sushi?

I think it's safe to say that brown rice is healthier than white rice in many ways. There are many articles on the web discussing the benefits between the two but I'll try to keep it simple and summarize it. To achieve your ideal weight, it is very important to understand the nutritional benefits of brown rice versus white rice for weight loss.

WHITE RICE - Refined/Processed, Lower Nutritional Value, Less Calories

BROWN RICE - Whole Grain, Higher Nutritional Value, More Fiber, Manganese, Phosphorus, B1, B3, & B6, Ability To Suppress Hunger, & Assist In Weight Reduction


  • Lowers Cholesterol Levels
  • Protects Against Heart Disease

A Healthy way to lose weight

Last year, I wanted to lose weight. So I started a Sushi Diet. It is very simple and flexible plan.

Day 1, 3, 5, 7.

Breakfast: 4-6 pieces of sushi. I usually eat California Rolls or Veggie Rolls.
2 Hours before lunch: 1 Banana
Lunch: 8-12 pieces of sushi rolls or 2 Hand Rolls of your choice or 6-8 specialty rolls
Mid Afternoon: 1 Apple
Dinner: 8-12 pieces of spicy tuna roll or California Rolls.

Day 2, 4, 6

Breakfast: 4-6 pieces of fresh Veggie Roll w/soy sauce.
2 Hours before lunch: 4-6 pieces of low sodium crackers & small orange juice. (This helps me kill the crave hunger.)
Lunch: 8-12 pieces of fresh Tuna, Salmon, or Veggie rolls. (Try to stay away from Fried sushi because of all the oil but once or twice is ok.
Mid Afternoon: 4 piece Spicy Rolls of your choice. (It is believe that spicy food helps increase metabolism. Thus, it helps burn fat.)
Dinner: 8-12 California rolls. (Keep it light at night.)

Helpful tips:

1. Stay away from fried sushi.
2. Drink a lot of water. I drink about 8 glasses per day.
3. Stay away from cream cheese sushi.
4. Keep it light at night.
5. Simple walk exercise for 15-30 mins.
6. No Tempuras.
7. Try to keep it mix different varieties of sushi since you WILL get bore and sick of it by 3rd day. The trick is to have different food in between so you always feel like your eating something different.

I lost almost 1 lb. per day. By the 7th day, i lost about 6 lbs. I didn't do any exercise that whole week. When my girlfriend saw me at the end of the week, she said " look different. You seem skinner." She was amaze that the Sushi Diet worked for me. I was very happy too and I like to share this secret to everyone. I hope everyone will give this Sushi Diet a try and email me your before and after. I'll be gladly put it up. Happy New Years!
