How can I restrict eating at Hara-Hachibunme (by 80% full)?

Benefits of “Hara-Hachibunme” (restricted eating)

As I explained in “Restricted eating lengthens your life?”, restricted eating only up to 80% or so helps your health in addition to weight management.

While it prevents obesity and disease by suppressing dietary calorie intake, it is also helpful as an anti-aging.

There is something called the “sirtuin gene” in our body.
Another name for the sirtuin gene is the “longevity gene” because it works to suppress cell aging, and a certain amount of calorie restriction activates it. In other words, you can expect the effect of preserving youthfulness by eating the eighth half of your stomach.

Tips for stopping your eating at “Hara-Hachibunme” (80% full)

If you are overeating and always fall feeling full, try incorporating the following into your diet.

Increase chewing frequency

It is very effective to chew food well and eat it to suppress it at 80% of the stomach.
A longer time to savor and eat will stimulate the satiety center and prevent overeating.

Also, by chewing well, a large amount of the digestive enzyme called amylase is secreted, which improves digestion and reduces the burden on the stomach and intestines.

Put down your knife, fork, and spoon after each bite.

To increase the number of chewing times, try to put your tableware down after each bite.

Fast eaters keep their tableware on from the beginning to the end of their meal.
Carrying food to your mouth one after another leads to overeating.

Once you are used to putting your tableware down after each bite, you will naturally become conscious of chewing well, and your eating pace will slow down.
As a result, the signal of the satiety center will be transmitted well, and it will be suppressed with only 80% of your stomach.

Cut the material hard and large.

Cutting food materials such as vegetables hard and large creates a chewy texture in your cooking. You can naturally increase the number of chews and prevent overeating.

We also recommend adding chewy nuts, beans, sesame seeds, etc., to accent your dishes.

Anyway, chewing well and eating are effective in keeping your stomach full.

Increase vegetables, seaweed, and mushrooms

Vegetables, seaweed, and mushrooms contain a lot of dietary fiber, so it’s hard to swallow them if you don’t chew them well.
Taking advantage of this feature, you can naturally increase the number of chews by increasing the amount of these in your meal.

Most of them are healthy, so let’s use them in your meals and connect them to your beauty and health.

Drink Soup, water or tea

Liquid will pass your stomach shortly, but your restricted eating. It will swell your stomach temporarily and mitigate your hunger until your satiety center begins to woks.

Serving for one person will also restrict your eating

First, it is effective to prevent overeating by arranging an amount of food that does not cause overeating and deciding “I will not eat anymore”.

Dishes on a platter tend to overeat while picking up this and that.
There are also people who force themselves to eat, saying things like, “It would be a waste if I leave it behind,” or “It’s rude to the person who made it.”

If you decide “only this” from the beginning, such as serving this on a single plate or dividing it into portions for one person instead of serving it on a large plate, you should not end up eating too much.

It is especially effective for those whose satiety center signals are dull.
Let’s prevent overeating by serving the amount that will make you 80% full from the plating.

Let’s finish the meal at the timing of “Hara-Hachibunme” (80% full).


The best time to finish your meal is when you feel like you can eat a little more.

In order to go on a diet without overdoing it, and to maintain beauty and health, let’s make it your everyday habit.

Menopause and Fatigue

Approximately 70% of menopausal women suffer from “menopause and fatigue”.

What are your symptoms?

After strenuous exercise or long periods of backbreaking work, we all feel tired and lethargic. However, it usually goes away with rest and sleep. However, women in the menopausal generation may feel tired all the time. Hobbies and small errands that you used to enjoy are not enjoyable for you any more. “I don’t want to do them,” “It’s troublesome to meet people,” and “It’s a hassle to go out.” It leads to a decrease in motivation and energy, depression, and irritability. There are many things around the menopause and fatigue.

What is the cause?

As women age, their ovarian function declines, and estrogen (female hormone) levels drop sharply. A part of the brain, the hypothalamus, controls the secretion of estrogen. But it can’t make the body secrete estrogen no matter how many commands it issues. Eventually, it confuses the hypothalamus. In this way, the brain and body become unbalanced due to hormonal imbalance during menopause. (About five years before and after menopause).  Menopause is when the body and brain work hard to restore this imbalance. It causes hot flashes (hot flashes, hot flashes, sweating), coldness, stiff shoulders, dizziness, ringing in the ears, headaches, depression, and anxiety.  A variety of emotional and physical disorders can occur.

In addition, menopause is also a time of significant changes in life, such as increased work responsibilities, nursing care for parents, and independence for children. These stresses in life can be a burden on the mind and body without knowing it. Most people will recover after menopause, so it is essential to spend time in a “slow rhythm” without blaming yourself or worrying that you may be lazy for not being able to care for yourself properly. Menopause and fatigue is a natural issue. Also, during this period, physical strength declines, and health changes are significant, so it is crucial to keep in mind healthy habits that you can do without overdoing them in your daily life, such as eating and exercise.

Disturbance of autonomic nerves

*The hypothalamus in the brain controls the secretion of hormones, but at the same time, it also plays a role in adjusting the autonomic nervous system. In this way, when the hormones are imbalanced in menopause and the hypothalamus is confused, the balance of autonomic nerves is disturbed. The autonomic nervous system has active sympathetic nerves that work mainly during the day and parasympathetic nerves that work at night for relaxation. During menopause, the autonomic nervous system tends to be disturbed due to hormonal imbalance, but keeping regular routines and taking care of breathing will help adjust the autonomic nervous system.

Breathing stimulates the sympathetic nerves with inhaling and the parasympathetic nerves with exhaling. So it will put your body into sleep mode, that you take deep breaths while consciously exhaling slowly before going to bed. A good rest is essential to alleviate sluggishness and fatigue. Please be aware of this.

easy self-care against menopause and fatigue

Aglycon-type isoflavone has shown to have an effect similar to drinking estrogen. It is one of the great ideas to take supplements with this special isoflavone. Take supplements or get them from your diet.
(Juveriente®’s EFFISOY® is the only supplement to contain the Aglycon isoflavone outside Japan.)

It would be better to take vitamins that are effective against the issues from menopause and fatigue from well-balanced foods, such as vitamins B1, C, and E, in your daily diet.

Foods that contain a lot of each are as follows.

(Vitamin) B1: pork, eel, liver, brown rice
C: green and yellow vegetables (broccoli, red peppers, etc.), fruits (strawberries, lemons, etc.), potatoes (potatoes, sweet potatoes, etc.), green tea
E: Nuts (almonds, etc.), avocados, green and yellow vegetables (pumpkin, mulukhiyah, etc.), olive oil

If you continue to have only sharrow sleep, you won’t be able to get rid of fatigue enough, and you won’t feel well. Avoid being sleep-deprived by keeping moderate exercises and adjusting your daily rhythm.
Menopausal women tend to get tired quickly when their sleep is short because of the lack of estrogen.

Support from family and friends is also essential. It would be nice if people knew that menopause is easy to get tired and that they could feel free to talk about their worries. And ask for help with household chores when you need it.

Natural Immune Booster, Effisoy®

Are you looking for a strong immune booster supplement?

We are all under the severe threat of COVID-19, but, as everybody knows, there is no vaccine yet, unfortunately. You may be looking for some medicines or supplements to make you immune immediately. But, no one resolution has a drastic effect. But we have to protect ourselves through various basic and natural hygiene and health practices.

The first and most important things are that you wash your hands and throat frequently. The number of people affected by the flu is lower by 60% compared to last year in Japan. It will be attributed to the improvement of such basic hygiene practices. So they will also be protective against other viruses, including COVID-19.

Another important thing is to keep up your immunity sound. There are many factors to affect your immune system.

Believe or not, (or maybe already well known?) smiling is one of the most definite immune boosters. You can read many studies nowadays. (For example, here is one by Mayo clinic.) In addition to smiling, there are also some basic practices. Having some exercises, taking various foods, sleeping well, and managing your stress. (Read this Huff Post article for such solutions.)

The other popular answer is that you take fermented foods. Over 60% of your immune cells and antibody protein against aggressors exist in your gut. Fermented foods will keep up the better balance of your enteric bacteria and support such immune cells and antibodies.

Yogurt will be the most familiar fermented food for you. But other fermented foods, Miso (fermented soy), Natto (fermented soy), Kimchi, etc., may be hard for you to eat.

Effisoy will be an easy and natural alternation to such Asian fermented foods. Its key ingredient is the extract of fermented soybean germ. Effisoy works as a natural immune booster through multiple courses not limited in the sense that it is made of Japanese fermented food.

First of all, we need to explain to you its effect as made of the fermented soybean germ, AglyMax. Fermented soy is off course, known to support the immune system. 

This natural ingredient has another excellent feature, high antioxidant capacity. It is higher than some great antioxidant ingredients, Gingko Biloba and Pine Bark extract, as shown in the table.

An excellent antioxidant also supports your immunity.

There is one more course. If your sleep is improved and your mood swing is stabilized, it will also prop up your immune system. Effisoy will help you as an immune booster through such multiple courses.

Magical Remedies in Your Backyard (Natural Anti Aging Techniques #3 by Kristen Sawyer).Juveriente®

It’s amazing how the skincare industry can advertise a thousand different creams, each with a promise of a miracle cure for sun spots or laugh lines, when one of the most powerful remedies waits in your own backyard and the grocery store. Aloe vera is one of the best remedies you can apply to your skin, both during menopause, which can cause the skin to dry, as well as part of a daily routine to hydrate, nourish, and love the skin a little deeper.

Aloe vera has long been known as a cure for burns. Whenever a child gets a burn on the hand from touching a hot dish, or a teenager spends too much time out in the sun without sunscreen, aloe vera is the go-to remedy. But this succulent, part of the Asphodelaceae family, contains a powerful cocktail of antioxidants, vitamins, and enzymes. It is powerfully anti-inflammatory, and inflammation is one of the major struggles with aging. Aloe vera, when applied topically, works as a smooth exfoliant. The enzymes gently cleanse away dead follicles, and can help prevent future signs of aging.

Renewing the Skin

The triple dosage of beta carotene, vitamin C and E all help provide the skin with more elasticity as the antioxidants smooth and nourish the contours of the face. Simultaneously, the giberellin in aloe vera acts as a growth hormone which helps the skin heal old scars or wounds. This same ingredient can work with sun spots as well. The combination of these active ingredients and the antioxidants help to create a mask that soothes and cleanses at the same time.

Applying the Green Gel

Incorporating aloe vera into a daily routine is simple. If your skin is oily, aloe vera can work as a moisturizer as well, meaning you can apply it in the morning after cleansing the face. At night, after cleansing, gently rubbing aloe vera into the face and neck is all that is required. You can cut a stem from an aloe vera plant if you live in an region where the succulent grows or where you can grow one inside. You can also buy the processed aloe vera gel at the store, though the actual plant is best. Cutting the stem of an aloe plant is a small practice in gratitude in and of itself. If you want to add an extra dose of healing power, look for an aloe vera gel that also contains the oil of calendula, a flower known for its healing properties and strong antioxidants.

Aging Gracefully

Ultimately, when the body ages, the greatest remedy to the process is the powerful act of acceptance, of leaning into aging with grace and curiosity. Everybody is different, and the skin often holds the woes of decades prior. The layers of the skin show damage that was inflicted years before. Too much tanning, battles with acne, scars from times long ago–these are the current decorations that the skin holds. Every woman’s skin is her own story. By applying a gel, like aloe vera, with care is not just to nourish the skin with simple, natural ingredients; it is also a ritual in self-love. Rubbing soothing aloe vera into the skin, looking at your beautiful eyes in the mirror–these small practices are curative in and of themselves. Your skin will thank you, but your heart will be even more grateful that you’re taking time to look at the beautiful woman you are, to love each line as the laugh that it held, and to nourish the skin that has carried you through this world thus far. That skin, your body, are prepared and preparing for many more adventures to come. Menopause is by no means the end. It is a new beginning.

To find natural solution to your menopause symptoms is the best solution, which is inexpensive and safe as well. Today Juveriente® brings you the best and all natural relief for menopause.
