That’s why I embarked on a 30-day journey to follow the Strict Asian Diet. Join me as I share my experiences, challenges, and the incredible results I achieved along the way.

Week 1: Embracing the Change
The first week was all about adjusting to a new way of eating. The Strict Asian Diet focuses on fresh, whole foods with an emphasis on vegetables, lean proteins, and minimal processed ingredients. It was a challenge at first, as I had to let go of my usual Western dietary habits. However, I soon discovered the joy of exploring new flavors and cooking techniques.

Week 2: Discovering New Flavors
As I delved deeper into the diet, I encountered a plethora of vibrant Asian ingredients that transformed my meals into culinary masterpieces. From fragrant herbs and spices to unique vegetables and fermented foods, my taste buds were treated to an explosion of flavors. Each meal became an adventure, and I eagerly looked forward to experimenting with different recipes.

Week 3: Feeling the Benefits
By the third week, I started noticing some incredible changes in my body and overall well-being. My energy levels soared, and I no longer experienced the mid-afternoon slump. The bloating and digestive issues that had plagued me before were practically nonexistent. The Strict Asian Diet’s emphasis on nutrient-dense foods provided me with the vitality I had been craving.

Week 4: The Final Results
As my 30-day journey came to an end, I couldn’t help but marvel at the positive impact the Strict Asian Diet had on my health. I had lost a few pounds, and my skin had never looked better. My friends and family also noticed the glow and radiance I now exuded. But beyond the physical changes, I felt a profound sense of well-being and harmony within myself.

The Strict Asian Diet has truly been a transformative experience. It’s not just a temporary diet but a sustainable way of nourishing the body and soul. By embracing the principles of this traditional Asian eating pattern, I have not only improved my health but also expanded my culinary horizons.

While the diet may initially seem strict, it offers a wide variety of delicious and nutritious options that can be tailored to individual tastes and preferences.

potato bread

⁣ Cooking notes:⁣ - The OG recipe used bread flour and I tried that too. Loved it, crispy and thin. I used ap flour instead since that's probably what most of us have in the pantry. :)⁣ - Don't forget to refrigerate the dough after you knead it into a soft dough. This allows the butter to harden to get a crispy outer layer. ⁣ - The potato filling - oh my, so so good! I added a little nutritional yeast, vegan mayo to season the potato⁣
