The Okinawa Diet plan is designed to help users burn fat and exercise to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. It is built around three key concepts comprised of calorie burning, decreased calorie intake and increased exercise. The Okinawa Diet website offers weight loss tools to official members that track meals, offer meal planning and support and help determine weight loss and health goals for each individual. Okinawa Dieters can choose from foods that fall into the featherweight, lightweight, middleweight and heavyweight category, with calories remaining low in the featherweight category and ranging to very high in the heavyweight category. Individuals will eat mostly items from the lighter categories but may not enjoy some of the recommended recipes for those foods. Though the Okinawa Diet will help dieters lose weight, it is also designed for long term use.
