Gravure model and TV personality Sayaka Isoyama, 25, on Wednesday announced that she will try the Core Rhythms dieting method to lose fat in her thighs, upper arms, hips and belly. Her challenge is part of the “Escape from Typical Japanese Body Shape Project.”
Isoyama, who calls herself “a representative of the chubby,” said, “I think there is a fine line between chubby and fat."
During the event, comedian Rie Kuwabata, who lost weight through a Core Rhythms diet last year, measured Isoyama's girth. She said, “Looking at the photos of various gravure girls, I thought that Isoyama really needs to lose weight through Core Rhythms.”
Core Rhythms utilize basic Latin dance moves to create an aerobic workout that allows individuals to shape their bodies while giving their hearts a much-needed workout.
Isoyama, who publicly announced her measurements, said, “I will take 30 cms off my girth by this time next month.”
Isoyama's progress will be reported on the website “kubireru.jp,” and the final result will be announced in April.© Japan Today
