Extreme Dietary Program

Kangin surprised media with his extreme diet after his military duty from 2012 until 2013. He had to diet because he was preparing for his comeback show with Super Junior after a 2-year hiatus and for the performance at the Daejun Gayo Festival at the end of the year (2013).

He was quite fat while in the military, so he wanted to get his shape back. He lost 15 kg (22 lbs) in 27 days! Unfortunately, he did this with an unhealthy diet program.

Kangin revealed his extreme dietary program during the press conference for Star Diving Show Splash. He said that he only ate small portions of vegetables and meats. He didn’t put any carbohydrates in his mouth and didn’t intake much water. In order to deal with hunger between meals, he would only eat one strawberry. He updated his Twitter about his meals, vitamins, and with his thin cheek selfie.

Not only watching meal portions, Kangin also did some harsh workouts. He did a lot of aerobic exercises on an empty stomach before going to sleep. He practiced diving too and lost even more weight. He really worked very hard.

The result was surprising in quantity, but it didn’t satisfy in quality. Kangin suffered dry eye syndrome and a stomach disorder due to his unhealthy diet. He looked way more aged and tired. He also became very sensitive because his blood pressure was increased. Because there were so many bad effects, Kangin didn’t recommend this diet to anyone.
