(2020 Happy Together, Habit Changing Project) (“Just One Month”) (“Just One Month”) (Happy Together) (“Just One Month”) (Healthy Body Designing Experiment Report) (Subject Group) (Hong Jinkyung, Cho Hangri, Angelina Danilova,) (Cho Saeho, Jung Junha, Heo Jungmin,) (Hong Hyunhee, Lee Hyunyi, Jun Hyunmoo) (Cho Saeho, Jung Junha) (4 subjects were chosen.) To be honest, I could say that I can do this for two months now. I think one month seems enough. 15 days would be enough for me. One month… I can follow the instructions for a month. If it’s three months, I’d start rebelling after one and a half months. But I would leave it to you for just a month. I can think of it as getting a driver’s license. (“Just One Month”) (The participation motives of the subjects) (Jung Junha) (Roha, I love you.) (“The romanticist”, “Doing dishes with Roha,”) (“Roha’s dance”) (Missed call from My Son Roha) (Two missed calls from My Son Roha) Hi, Roha. Okay. I love you. Yes. I love you. Bye. Sleep well. What time will I go home? I’ll be home late at night. I had my first child at the age of 42. The fact I am not a healthy dad disappoints me at times. (Subject 4, home, videos) (“Happy weekend with Roha”,) (“Roha’s dance”, “Large pizza”) I’m exhausted. Lately, I have been worrying a lot about the possibility of my health worsening and ruining the happiness I share with my wife and son. (Participation motives) (Hyunhee’s tears) It had been a while since I was on TV… I’m getting teary. I got a chance to be on a TV show, and I thought that I should maintain that image to get more work. You know what I mean, right? Of course. It’s nothing to cry about. – I got attention after marriage, / – Yes, you did. and people talked about how cute I am when eating. That made me think that I would be loved only when I showed that particular side of me. But I got the wrong idea. (She suffered emotionally) (while trying to live up to expectations.) When I watch cable channels, I can see myself on TV shows that aired 3 or 4 years ago. I am a TV personality. I don’t necessarily have to look handsome, but I shouldn’t look bad. I nearly puked because I hated how I looked so much. This will be more special to me than the other participants since 2020 is the last year of my 30s. I kept repeating losing and regaining weight. So I have decided to find a sustainable, practical, and healthy weight loss solution. My motto for this year is “Sustainable weight loss”. (Subject 4, Jung Junha) Slowly. (Step by step without rushing) I promised myself that I will love myself, and I’m going to keep that promise. I feel like I’ve finally found a weight loss solution that I can actually enjoy. It feels like part of my daily life. I was excited. I hope this small change will help me turn my life around. (2020 Habit Changing Project,) (“Just One Month”, begins now.) 2020 Happy Together Habit Changing Project, “Just One Month”, has finally begun. – Hello. / – Hello. (Subject group) You may be confused because the studio is redecorated. That’s right. But we began our special project, “Just One Month”. I’m sure you can guess what this program is about from the title of it. It’s a one-month project carried out by Happy Together. For the next month, we will carry out a project to celebrate the new year. Everyone makes resolutions at the beginning of the year. – That’s right. / – We’re going to try to make our New Year’s resolutions work as the subjects of an experiment in this project. – Above all, / – Yes? I like the title, “Just One Month”. – I like the title too. / – Me too. – It ends in 1 month no matter what. / – Just 1 month. Regardless of whether or not you achieve a good result, – Exactly. / – the project will be over after one month. I had a good time for the past month. Honestly, – I had a good time. / – I felt relieved when it ended. – I felt so relaxed. / – Of course. The topic for our first experiment is what many people are interested in, including me. It’s to make a healthy body through weight loss. The hosts of the show participated in this project with two special guests. “Everyone looks pretty when eating with gusto.” “And so do you.” The eating fairy we all love became one man’s life fairy. She dreams to become a healthy mother. Hong Hyunhee! Hong Hyunhee! (Subject 1, in her 30s, female, blood type A) – Look at her neck. / – Hyunhee. – Hyunhee. / – Yes? I know that today is the last day of the project. But why do you keep showing your neck? Since my body has become lighter, I feel like going up higher. – My body feels so light. / – We haven’t even checked how much weight you lost yet, but you already said it yourself. Anyway, I can feel the change – that I made in the past month. / – You feel good. – Good and refreshed. / – She lost some weight. I can see that she lost weight. Let’s move on. He’s been Gourmand King of Korea for a half-century. Wax Drippings Jung, Lava Jung, and Grandpa Jung. He used to be the icon of rapid weight loss. But now, he’s the head of a family in his 50s who wants to keep his family happy by losing weight in a healthy way. – Jung Junha! / – Jung Junha! Jung Junha! (This is his first appearance on TV after a long time.) – However, / – He became cheerful. we saw each other a month ago, so we can see that Junha lost some weight. But the viewers might be confused. – Really? / – He hasn’t been on TV for a while. He almost retired from the TV industry. He was cast right before he decided to retire and made his comeback. He’s planning to work hard on TV shows once again. You’re going to be on TV shows again, right? – I’m on a TV show right now. / – Right. But Happy Together is the only show you’ve appeared so far. That’s different from what he said to me before. – Why? / – Grilling skewers for me, he said, “I’m so happy that I’m not working in the TV industry.” Exactly. I also heard that he had said such things. Saeho couldn’t even say a word in front of me before. He was always lurking around us, but now that he’s established, – he acts like / – Look at his luxury watch. he’s my senior. – Gosh, Cho Saeho. / – Oh, boy. – I’m uncomfortable sitting here. / – Right. – Leave if you’re uncomfortable. / – Anyway, the four of you participated in the experiment – as subjects for one month. / – Yes. We focused on the sustainability of the program so it could become your lifelong habits. This is the main purpose of our project. Jaeseok, you didn’t lose weight. If I become skinnier than this, – You’d look like Lee Yoonseok. / – I might die. Lee Yoonseok? If I become any skinnier than this, – it would damage my health. / – That’s true. He should’ve participated in it. He should’ve been a subject of the experiment too. – And gain weight. / – What should I have done? – You’re too skinny. / – You need to gain some weight. – Exactly. / – You should gain some weight. You should’ve eaten some ramyeon. – But… / – While we were losing weight, you could have tried to gain 15kg in a month or something like that. – Me? / – And bulk up. He would look much better. – Anyway… / – From my seat, you look like a skeleton. (Shell, be gone.) He’s too skinny. How could you say that? How could you call me a skeleton? – I’m sorry. / – I’m very curious about how they spent the past month. We also invited the experts who helped us with the experiment. He’s a scientist who used to be an endocrinologist. He’s an authority on obesity and appetite. Professor Choi Hyeongjin from SNUCM is here. (Experimenter A, A harsh pessimist) Next up is the expert in eating behavior psychology of eating, – Ms. Kim Mirim. / – Welcome. (Experimenter B, An extreme optimist) I’m excited to see how they helped the subjects make their bodies healthier for the past month. We observed their eating habits, and we found out that each of them had bad eating habits that are common nowadays, and they had different eating habits. We checked when, on what occasions, what they usually ate, how much they drank to socialize with other people, what time they usually ate, and if there were any other causes of their eating habits. And we found common problems from each of them. You found bad eating habits the four of them had. – You probably don’t know, / – Yes. but the three of us all have – different traits. / – Is that so? And Junha was like all of us put together. (Subject 4, the evil of evils) – He had all the problems we had. / – He was the worst. – Yes. / – So he was like a zombie king. Exactly. A zombie king. Was it offensive? I apologize. He was like the whole package. Now, we’re going to see what kind of eating habits they had before the experiment. Let’s watch. (Happy Together) (Hong Hyunhee) (Hong Hyunhee Before) (One month earlier) That’s when we first met. It’s been a month already. – Hi. / – Welcome. Please have a seat. – Oh, my. / – Hi. Oh, my. 2020 Happy Together Habit Changing Project, “Just One Month”. That’s the project name. These are the stars who participated in the healthy body project. There are four stars in this project, but one of them is on her way after the shoot. – She’s very busy. / – Only three of them have arrived. Gosh, look at him. – Doesn’t he look like Podong? / – My goodness. – Doesn’t he? / – Yes, he does. – He does. / – Saeho looks very different now. – I got much thinner. / – He lost a lot of weight. The reason why we invited all of you tonight is… You can think of this as your last feast. You can think of this as your last feast. What does that mean? Something smells good. At such a late hour, they worked really hard to make all those dishes for us. (Surprise!) (Red meat, white meat, and seafood in your mouth) Food temptation is hard to resist. (We prepared everything for you.) – Enjoy your last feast. / – May we look around? (Enjoy the food for now.) Go ahead and eat. – Can we? / – Please eat all you want. I can eat a lot. You see, this is… – Awesome. / – This is nice. – It looks so delicious. / – First, I’ll look around. – It was around 11 p.m. / – 11 p.m. – Yes, it was late at night. / – Or 10 p.m. – It was late. / – People eat snacks at that hour. – We gathered after a shoot. / – That’s right. So we were very hungry. Should I use this bowl? (He chose a large bowl.) What plate should he use? – What’s that? / – Why did you bring it? – But I need a plate… / – Junha, come on. – What is it? / – Isn’t that a washbasin? I thought I was supposed to eat a lot at once. – Why did you bring a washbasin? / – You’re trying – too hard. / – Of course, I am. I’m extremely enthusiastic right now. Junha’s face also looks a bit swollen. Actually, it was Junha’s first day back on TV shows. – So he was overly enthusiastic. / – Right. His face was swollen. She startled me. (Shouting with joy) – ♪ I prefer the smiling ♪ / – Let’s smile. – It’s so pretty. / – Right? – Right, right. That’s right. / – Right? Right? (All the participants of Project One have gathered.) (The last feast begins.) Everything looks good. – Tonight, we… / – It looks good. Oh, my. There was an octopus here. I can’t miss it. (Everyone’s putting the food they like on the plate.) – It’s awesome. / – It must’ve been freshly cooked. – It’s been a long time. / – A squid. It looks so good. Who cooked? Everything looks so good. We have mung bean pancakes too. This is awesome. – I’ll have Korean food. / – It looks so good. – We can eat more later, right? / – You know, right? – Junha, that’s amazing. / – Look at Junha’s plate. (Stir-fried octopus) – Where have you been? / – Is it jellyfish? – Stir-fried squid is so tasty. / – I had a shoot. And spicy sea snail too. (Jellyfish salad, spicy sea snail) Saeho, would you like some dried pollack soup? (The highlight, dried pollack soup) Would you like some soup? I’m good, thanks. (Exclaiming) – Look at my chin. / – Hyunhee looks – very different now. / – Indeed. It’s been only a month. – My face looks really swollen. / – Right? – That’s not right. / – That soup contains so much sodium. It makes me fat. Hyunhee, it seems that you like mixing rice in soup. Am I right? – Right? / – I can’t eat without soup. Didn’t you know? She eats gukbap in a moving car. – Exactly. / – She eats in her car. Bland food doesn’t even feel like food to me. Eating salty and spicy food makes me feel so energetic. It helps me relieve stress. (Bad eating habit 1: Excessive sodium intake) I like salty and spicy food that satisfies my taste buds. Jasson. (Hong Hyunhee’s Salt-eating Habit) – Is this her house? / – It’s a famous house. Oh, the one with a river view. (The tidiness of the designer husband) (and the wit of the comedienne wife are combined.) (This is Hyunhee and Jasson’s sweet newlywed house.) (Slim) She looks much thinner. I lost 10kg before my wedding. – Don’t lie to us. / – It’s true. It’s a painting. No, it’s not. Does she really live in that house? You’re mistaken. (Hyunhee got up early.) What are you going to eat? What do you mean? For breakfast. I won’t eat breakfast. (Giggling) You won’t eat? No. I have no appetite. Then I’ll just have to prepare breakfast for myself. Why are you acting like this is unusual for us? (The Ratio of Skipping Breakfast) (white: women, blue: men) A cup of coffee would be enough for me. All right. I’ll make spinach soybean paste soup. Gosh. I won’t eat that. Hot soup is best on winter days. The soup is amazing. (Her breakfast is spinach soybean paste soup.) It’s so convenient these days. All I need is one sachet. (One sachet of broth ingredients) Or two sachets to make the flavor richer. It makes me feel rich. Why do you need 2 sachets to make broth? Just use 1. That’s why it makes me feel rich. I want a rich flavor. Look how fresh the spinach is. Some manila clam meat makes it even better. I don’t want clams for breakfast. – Where is Jasson? / – Where is he? – In the bed? / – Find him. Did he dub the video after the shoot? I thought he was a voice actor. Is he pretending he’s at home? No. It’s starting to boil. Everything except for the soup is done. (She’s making food that her husband won’t eat.) (Humming) (A spoonful of minced garlic) (Three handfuls of dried shrimp) I’m so happy when I cook in the morning. She’s quite diligent. I’m diligent – when it comes to food. / – Exactly. I’ll put in soybean paste now. I’m ready. It tastes better when it’s a bit salty. (A spoonful of soy sauce) (Exclaiming) Am I good at adjusting saltiness because I’ve been eating a lot of delicious food since I was a little child? (Salty soup, not soybean paste soup) She added soy sauce on top of soybean paste. Is that soup? Aren’t you braising spinach? It becomes soup once I put in spinach. – My gosh. / – “Braised spinach”? I lived with my grandma when I was a kid. When I was very young, I started eating chili paste and soybean paste. My grandma fed me those even when I was a baby. Since I remember the taste, I tend to look for such food. When I eat bland food, I feel unsatisfied. A bowl of soup makes my day. (Salty food is the best.) (She starts her day with salty food.) I think you put in too much soybean paste. – Jasson finally appeared. / – There he is. He finally appeared. I thought that he dubbed the video after the shoot. You’re mistaken. – I thought he was a robot. / – We live together. That’s so funny. I think you put in too much soybean paste. It’ll be too salty. It’s healthy. It boosts my energy. Aren’t you going to eat two bowls of rice with it? (Sodium equals energy in her dictionary.) Are you listening to me? I know what you mean. But try it. It’s sweet. You asked why it wasn’t sweet earlier. But I don’t want to eat it. I’ll just taste it. (Automatic reaction) Right? Gosh, it’s too salty. She eats a lot of salty food. When she cooks on weekends, I taste the soup she makes. And it’s always too salty, to be honest. I knew she likes salty food. Also, people usually skip a meal when they have no appetite. But she eats rice mixed with pickled cucumber. – That shocked me. / – Really? It helps boost your appetite. I’ll wear glasses. (Sodium Intake Report, only from one meal) So I can see the food clearly. (Spinach soybean paste soup, 1,007mg) (Pickled chili, 1,300mg) (Salted squid, 1,278mg) That’s also very salty. Salted pollack roe. – Every side dish is salty. / – I love it. (Tofu with stir-fried kimchi and so on, 254mg) (The total sodium intake, approximately 5,043mg) (It’s twice the recommended sodium intake per day.) All those side dishes go so well with cooked rice. Indeed. You can finish the whole bowl of rice with them. They’re all very tasty. Only with the pickled perilla leaf, for example. (They start eating.) (Packaged salad sold in stores) – Jasson is eating salad. / – Yes. – He usually eats like that. / – Really? – He ate it to eat with me. / – Really? He just drinks coffee in the morning. – He doesn’t eat breakfast. / – He skips breakfast. (The couple eats their breakfast in different styles.) (Young radish kimchi) You know what I’m saying, right? I’m saying this for your health. What worries me is that you eat a lot of food like pickled perilla leaf – and this… / – Salted pollack roe. Salted pollack roe, salted squid, pickled chili, and stir-fried kimchi. They’re all very salty. (Hyunhee calmly puts salted pollack roe on her spoon.) I like these side dishes because they’re salty. You don’t seem to know how good bland food can be. – You’re right. / – You don’t. It doesn’t taste like food. (A spoonful of sodium entered.) It’s true that it’s tasty when the soup is a little salty. But she eats too much salty food. You should eat less salty food. But I’ve never seen you eat that way. It’s really bad for your health. And that Captain Snack. I told you not to eat the sweet snacks from there, but you ate all of them. (It’s because I am the captain.) It’s because I am the captain. I am Captain Glutton. (I am Captain Glutton, Hong Hyunhee.) She’s rolling her sleeves up. (I will show you the true power of Korean food.) – Where are you going? / – I’m going for a refill. (One spoonful of sodium is added.) (When you eat, you have to pack your mouth,) (chew well, and eat a lot.) (That’s how you enjoy a meal.) I feel so full. Here’s why I decided to go on a diet. Honestly, in the past, I didn’t care even if I got sick. Now that I’m married, I have a sense of responsibility. Since we are married, we should think about having a child. I want a child, and so does my husband. That’s why I have to think about my health now. If I get pregnant, my health will determine my child’s health. So I have to think about health now. From what we’ve seen, we can tell that you love salty food. Salty food goes really well with rice. Have you ever had a dish and said, “Gosh, this is salty”? Never. I never tasted something and found it too salty. If it’s a little salty, I add water to it, and the portion increases. And that makes me happy. For example, if I find sundae soup a little salty, I ask for water. Adding water to it doubles the portion, so I get happy. – It’s a bonus. / – That’s how positive and generous I am when it comes to food. A lot of Koreans have gotten used to salty foods. It’s just like how you put it a while ago. There are a lot of people like that. The recommended daily intake is 2g. – 2g? / – 2g daily? – Isn’t that too little? / – That’s too little. But an average Korean eats 4g of sodium a day. On average. Hyunhee eats about 3.2 times the recommended amount. – “3.2 times”? / – If you think about adding that much salt to your food, that’s a lot. Adding 6, 7g of salt is a lot. Aren’t you worried that you eat too salty? It doesn’t taste salty to me, so I don’t know. – Right. / – You can’t see it. – It’s included in the dishes. / – Right. Salty food causes hypertension. That’s one side effect. Secondly, salty food makes you – overeat rice. / – Right. So it increases the carbohydrate intake, which leads to weight gain. And that causes diabetes and hyperlipidemia. As you can see, Hyunhee is 155cm tall, and she weighs 68kg. BMI is 28.8. – That’s high. / – Your body fat percentage is 45. It means half of her body mass is fat. This is her blood test result. Cholesterol level was high, the bad cholesterol level was particularly high. It’s over 150. This means in 10, 20 years, her blood vessel health will deteriorate significantly. That is if that persists for 10, 20 years. In this situation, you mentioned pregnancy. Your reproductive organs… Your organs need to function well to produce eggs, and they might not function as well as they should. And that might make getting pregnant difficult. – Really? / – That’s the data from a month ago. That was from a month ago. – You’re changing now. / – She must’ve gotten better. But it’s not easy. Like we said, the purpose of this project is not just weight loss. – It’s about being healthy. / – Yes. Our goal is to help you become healthy and easily sustain good health. In that sense, how much weight you lost today… The number doesn’t matter too much. (Making your body healthy isn’t all about weight loss.) (Happy Together) (Jun Hyunmoo) (Jun Hyunmoo Before) (The in-depth study of Hyunmoo’s eating habits) You are getting ambitious now that you’re on TV again. (Subject 2 is getting a lot of one dish.) Why are you on TV? (Going for carbs) You have to start lightly at first. – Chocolate? There was chocolate? / – For dessert. (It’s his first plate, and he even gets dessert.) (He is the first one to start eating.) I eat fast. Even when I was in the army, I ate faster than others. Eating fast is the problem. And I like food with strong flavors. Also, I only go for the food I always eat. I always eat gimbap. I eat too much gimbap. That’s… (Because he is busy, he always gets easy-to-eat meals.) I eat fast food too fast, and I do it too often. It can’t be good for my health. One of the bad habits I still have is eating fast. – You eat fast. / – I eat fast. I sit down first and finish first. (Jun Hyunmoo’s Fast-eating Habit) It’s the annex of KBS. I’d like – ramyeon. / – You love ramyeon. I do. I always get ramyeon when I’m here. I always came here and ate ramyeon and budae jjigae. – Did you really? / – You can order just one serving. You should recommend a dish to me. – Spicy chili ramyeon. / – You like that. – Their rabokki is good too. / – Really? Should we order 1 ramyeon, 1 rabokki, and one budae jjigae? – Do you want budae jjigae? / – I like budae jjigae. – You serve budae jjigae, right? / – Yes, we do. One order of dumplings too. (Ramyeon, rabokki, budae jjigae, dumplings) – Isn’t it too much? / – I love dumplings so much. – Dumplings? / – I want to have… (Ramyeon, rabokki, budae jjigae, dumplings) I want jjolmyeon too. How many are we… – We are here to eat, so… / – Jjolmyeon? – I love jjolmyeon. / – There’s only one cook. 4 out of the 5 dishes are noodle dishes. I don’t know why ramyeon tastes so good in those restaurants. Hyunmoo’s eating habit is similar to mine. But… – Rabboki and ramyeon. / – I like them too. – They are great. / – Noodle dishes are all good. Rabboki is really good. (Carbs are the main cause of weight gain.) – Fried seaweed noodle roll. / – My gosh. (Ramyeon dishes, the main cause, are served.) Ramyeon is the best noodle dish. I love ramyeon. – Rabboki looks great too. / – She makes good food. (Noodle dishes fill the table.) – Enjoy. / – Enjoy. (He first goes for his favorite, ramyeon.) (He swallows it after chewing three times.) How did you manage to make four dishes so quickly? He swallowed it after chewing three times. You can’t chew ramyeon for too long. – It just slides down your throat. / – It does. (He goes for the second slurping.) It’s great. (He’s impatient, and the noodles are hot.) (Most Koreans can relate.) Ramyeon doesn’t taste as good if you chew it for a long time. You have to swallow it when you think you haven’t chewed enough. Without chewing? I think I chew about three times. (Why do you eat so fast?) Eating slowly just made me furious. It’s bad for my mental health. My body could get healthier, but it made me furious inside. I need to swallow it when it’s still lumpy. Only then it feels like I’m eating something. When it becomes too mushy… It’s tough for me. (52 percent of Koreans finish eating in 10 minutes.) It’s nice. (To Hyunmoo…) The three ramyeon dishes all taste different. (Food is all about swallowing.) (He’s already scratching the bottom.) You already finished it. – You are so fast. / – I am done. (Eating speed and adult diseases) It’s spicy chili ramyeon, but it’s not too spicy. (The faster you eat, the more likely you’ll get sick.) It’s not spicy? Do you eat spicy food well? (The faster you eat,) (the higher the cholesterol level gets.) That’s one hearty broth. – It’s so spicy. / – How is that spicy? It’s too spicy. You should put rice in it. Saeho doesn’t eat much. – I ate everything. / – Saeho doesn’t eat? – I eat very slowly. / – He’s sassy. You ate two ramyeons. (Why do you want to go on a diet for a month?) When I watch cable channels, I can see myself on TV shows that aired 3 or 4 years ago. I nearly puked because I hated how I looked so much. I was so ugly that I felt sorry for the viewers. I am a TV personality. I don’t necessarily have to look handsome, but I shouldn’t look bad. (Who are you?) He’s got a warm smile. He looks a bit like Noh Joohyun. – He’s got a warm smile. / – What is that? He looked a bit like Noh Joohyun. I know. I thought he was Mr. Noh. I feel even sorrier because you are my age. You know that people born in 1977 are very stubborn. I don’t feel bad because you are stubborn. You might die. If I continue living like this? No, I’m afraid that you might die soon. Recently, my college friend passed away. My college friends are all doctors. 200 of us gathered and said, – it’s about time we pass away one by one. / – Gosh. That’s just based on statistics. Some do it for good looks. No, I’d do it for health. A lot of my doctor friends exercise to survive – because we know we die otherwise. / – Even doctors? Yes. – He sounded scary at the end. / – That’s scary. Did you say that because you’re worried that – Hyunmoo might die soon? / – Oh, no. We hear about people in their 40s meeting sudden death. We hear about colleagues and people on TV dying that way. Some celebrities in their 40s have died suddenly. – But why? Why did they die? / – Why did they die? It’s because of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular problems. Did the number increase because of the eating habits? It’s because of people’s eating habits. Compared to 100 years ago, our eating habits changed a lot. If Hyunmoo collapses on the way home – Suddenly. / – and dies at an Emergency Room, as a doctor, I would check his cholesterol level. And I would think it happened for a reason. You wouldn’t be surprised. – You wouldn’t be surprised. / – Right. Let’s check Hyunmoo’s result. He’s 173cm tall. He weighs 78kg. BMI is 26.1. It’s slightly high. Your body fat percentage is 26. Here’s the blood test result. Overall cholesterol level is high. But in particular, LDL cholesterol, the bad cholesterol level is nearly 160. Even as we speak, this bad cholesterol is slowly blocking the blood vessels in your brain and in your heart. That’s the bad cholesterol. Is there good cholesterol too? Yes. HDL cholesterol is good cholesterol. – It’s good if that one is high. / – That’s right. Why is it good if that’s high? That cholesterol takes the fat residues in the blood vessels and removes them. That’s why we call it the good cholesterol. You need a balanced ratio of those cholesterols. But if we look at Hyunmoo’s diet, which is similar to many people’s, there’s a very high ratio of carbs. What’s wrong with the habit of eating fast? I am trying to eat slower, but it’s not easy. Once we start eating, hormones are released from our intestines. The hormones tell you that you’ve had enough and that you should stop. But if you eat before those hormones get released, your appetite is not curbed, and you end up eating a lot without control within that time. Some people finish eating in five minutes. And there are people who eat slowly and take 15 minutes to eat. People who eat fast have 1.8 times increased risk of developing hyperlipidemia. There’s 23 times increased risk of developing a fatty liver. Getting into the habit of eating slower will make you eat less. Is there a recommended eating time? We recommend that you take 15 to 20 minutes. That’s long. What are the good habits they need to lose weight in a healthy way? Rather than removing one habit, it’s better to add one good habit. It’s different from other diets. People go on a diet to join a competition – or to shoot a body profile photo. / – Right. Some variety shows show celebrities losing weight fast. – Right. / – Right. But once you are done, – you bounce right back. / – Right. So add a habit that’s easy-to-do and easy to keep to your routine. If you keep it for four weeks, it will become your lifelong habit. My personal goal is to see you being healthy 10 to 20 years from now. Can you tell us about your solution? Here were my suggestions for Hyunhee. One was eating child-sized portions. It enables her to see how much she eats. It’s about eating less. She has to see how much she eats. Next, I suggested that she brushes her teeth before and after a meal to control her appetite. – “Brush her teeth”? / – That was my suggestion. When you brush your teeth… The sodium in your mouth creates cravings. But when you brush your teeth, the chemical content in the toothpaste helps get rid of that craving. It plays that role. I think Jaeseok controls his appetite by brushing his teeth. – You’ve seen him, right? / – Right after eating? – He does this and… / – Right after eating. He even brushes – his uvula. / – That’s bad for your throat. I tend to brush my teeth very aggressively. I think his uvula fell off once. I picked it up for him. – Did you? / – He does it until he pukes. Hyunmoo is a man in his 40s who eats fast. What was your solution for him? The first solution for him was eating one salad a day. – One salad a day. / – That’s not easy to do. I really hate eating greens. I don’t like vegetables. The second solution was the 2030 method. – What’s that? / – He will eat slowly for 20 minutes. And he will chew 30 times each time. – It’s all about eating slowly. / – That’s difficult. I think Hyunmoo eats fast for efficiency. – That’s possible. / – He wants to save time and get things done. You should take advantage of your social environment and who you eat with. If you get into the habit of eating over a period of 20 minutes, your body will get used to eating slowly. You have a girlfriend. When you eat a meal together, does she not complain? Doesn’t she ask you to wait for her? I always wait for her. I eat fast and watch her. (I still have a lot to eat, honey.) – But she… / – That’s annoying. – She eats slowly. / – She eats in a healthy way. – She chews a lot. / – She chews in a pretty way. It’s a habit, so… – It’s a habit. / – It’s hard to change. You have to keep practicing and try hard. (Exempted subject) (King Yu Jaeseok) A bonus? What is that? I usually don’t eat around this time. If I didn’t get to eat anything all day long and I feel famished, I get a light meal at home. When someone eats, don’t you want to have some too? How can you not even taste the food? – I… / – He disciplines himself to the point of putting us off. – I am… / – He’s heartless. Don’t be like that. Be humane. Junha saw right through me. I am trying to put him off. – Yes. / – I am doing this on purpose. I am doing this intentionally to put him off. He clearly understood my intention. (He succeeded in putting Junha off.) That was precisely what I was going for. But that makes him look – too inhumane. / – Yes. Even if he usually doesn’t eat, shouldn’t he have eaten – just like everybody else? / – Right. It tastes better when you share. I try to eat three meals regularly. Usually, I eat dinner at 5:30 p.m., at the earliest. (2. He eats an early dinner.) – What? / – Elders in the farming communities eat like that. What joy do you have in life? You should join my father. Why do you live such a disciplined life? My dad gets upset if he’s not fed before 5:30 p.m. You are so loud. Come here and talk. When you live alone, you never get to eat such a variety of dishes. – No. You always eat instant food. / – Right. I eat instant food every day. Saeho used to be so chubby. He used to look very different. Isn’t he a mixed martial artist? I didn’t know it then. I actually never eat breakfast. I always eat breakfast. I usually eat lunch, dinner, and night snacks. – Same here. / – So – You eat three meals a day. / – this is what I think. When you don’t eat breakfast, you eat too much during lunch. – I eat too much. / – Right. It’s a mess. The time I open my eyes is considered morning. The meal I have then is considered breakfast. My last meal of the day is considered dinner. Every night, I come up with all kinds of reasons to go and drink with people. I have a lot of friends, so I always make appointments. That’s why I need to stop drinking so much. I tried drinking less. (He tried drinking less.) But I still drink quite often. It’s tough. This will be more special to me than the other participants since 2020 is the last year of my 30s. I want to go on a diet, which I can keep and which will make me healthy. (Will he be able to keep the diet and get healthy?) It’s not like he wasn’t trying to lose weight. He’s been working out regularly. You once worked out and got a very muscular body. That happened once. The doctors said this a while ago. The four of you represent the eating habits we see around us. Some of you drink often, and some of you need to drink to sleep. Saeho drinks quite often. How many times a week do you drink? – I will be honest. / – In a week, I drink 6 to 7 days. – That’s every day. / – Almost every day. – I drink every day. / – You have a lot of work. I drink every day, but I don’t drink a lot. I just drink often. After work, – I’d drink a half bottle / – You drink while eating. of soju while eating. I’ve been drinking – so consistently. / – Saeho has that habit. Here’s what I noticed. People try to leave, but he stops them. He doesn’t want to eat alone. – He feels lonely. / – He stops his manager or his stylist to have dinner with him. That’s his habit. – He’s lonely. / – I feel lonely eating alone. When I go home, I have to be alone. – So I always make excuses. / – Right. Drinking to socialize is fine. But there are times when you can’t sleep without drinking. – Drinking became a habit. / – You’re getting addicted. – You drink alone too. / – If I don’t drink – at least a can of beer one day, / – Right. – That’s bad. / – I can’t fall asleep. That’s understandable. If you drink more than seven shots a day, the risk of having a stroke increases by three times. – It’s bad for the cerebral artery. / – I see. It happens a lot. It’s exactly the same as substance abuse. If you stay addicted to alcohol or substance, you become like those old men who drink – a bottle of soju at home. / – Those who just drink. There’s a very high risk of becoming like them. – So you should try to… / – A while ago, he said he wouldn’t be surprised if Hyunmoo suddenly dies. – Old man. / – And now he said Saeho – is going to be an old man. / – At least you survived. So I will just grow old as the man who drinks alone in the house. He needs to get addicted to love. Right. He needs to find another way to entertain himself. – It’s… / – Drinking is… – This is a good turning point. / – Right. – Yes. / – Let’s find out what his solution was for Saeho. Let’s look at Saeho’s result. BMI is over 30. It’s 30.6. – He’s extremely obese. / – He is in the red. His blood test result has a lot of high red bars. His cholesterol level is high. The neutral fat percentage is particularly high. This has a lot to do with drinking. It means his blood is fatty. That’s precisely what it means. If you check the blood with a high neutral fat percentage, you can see the fat. It will block all your vessels. There’s a very high risk of that. More than anything, Saeho’s tendency to depend on alcohol worried the doctor the most. It would be important to see what solution he gave. Yes. To help him depend less on alcohol, the first solution is drinking a glass of water for a shot of alcohol. Drinking a glass of water for a shot of alcohol. – Yes. / – Yes. By drinking a glass of water for a shot of alcohol, you prevent the alcohol from destroying your muscles and increasing body fat. In short, you keep it from doing harm. This made it harder for him to drink a lot. I helped him get into the habit of doing this. Secondly, I told him to drink three times a week instead of drinking 6 or 7 times a week. – That was my solution. / – Once every other day. That was the solution for the first week. He didn’t tell Saeho to stop drinking. Instead, he told him to drink a glass of water for every shot of alcohol he drinks. That was his solution for the first week. (Jung Junha Before) (The Avengers appear.) We were told to have our fill since it would be our last supper, but I see that it was set up to study our eating habits. (As expected from Gourmand King,) (he tried all the dishes.) (A heap of food) – What is this? / – His plate is different from ours. How many servings of food did you get? (This can’t be for 1 person.) (Junha has much more food than Hyunmoo.) The quantity is on another level. He scoops food in a different way. I should learn from him. It felt like my last supper, so I really focused on enjoying a lot of food. I was determined to eat a lot. I was hungry all day long, so I thought, “Let’s eat a lot. This is the last day.” “I will begin working out tomorrow.” I have fallen into that trap a few times. I am sure a lot of people have. I am afraid I will look oafish. (His words don’t match his behaviors.) I am afraid I will look oafish. I should stop eating. I was scared that the crew would stop me from getting food altogether, so I ate a lot that day. (Junha goes back to the buffet.) Gosh, the food is tasty. (He always welcomes food…) Gosh. (like this is the first time.) I will gain weight if I drink soup. I have a dinner appointment later. For programs, – you go to different places. / – He came here to eat. I have a dinner appointment later. He came here to eat, not to star in a show. – He is really enjoying his food. / – Seriously. (He gave his all until the very last plate.) (The in-depth study of Junha’s eating habits) It’s a restaurant. – Skewers. / – Skewers are delicious. They look delicious. (The place with skewers, tasty drinks,) (and good vibe.) – Which table? / – Number five. – Which table? / – Number five. – Number five. / – Yes. Here are the meatballs you ordered. Please enjoy. (Rumors have it that Junha has retired.) Young people know you as the owner of a skewer place. (He is used to being the owner of a skewer place.) Good work. (Junha’s days after retirement) We didn’t get many customers today, did we? It’s like “Screening Humanity”. It looks as if I had retired. – For goodness’ sake. / – You know, it’s like “My Way”. (Just One Month) (Junha started his 2nd life in the kitchen.) (He hangs out with his colleagues) (and works busily without a break.) Please enjoy. You can put the skewers here. You want to pay first. Take your time. The restroom? It’s on the second floor. (He directs the customers to the restroom) (and takes photos with fans.) (A self-employed man must stay diligent to survive.) Did you take them out because they are frozen? – What? / – The drinks. Are they frozen? She is the manager. I am sure the employees know this. If customers eat cleanly and leave behind food, he won’t let us throw it away. He consumes it. “He consumes it.” He is like a vacuum cleaner. – He eats the leftovers. / – Of course, he does. (Let’s do the fact-checking.) Is this the leftover? It would be a waste to throw it away. (He inhales the food so as not to waste it.) You ate tasty food before. When did I do that? It would be a waste to throw it away. (I know.) (He clears the gimbap.) Thank you. – What is this? / – It’s a wrong order. (A wrong order) Is it a wrong order? (He hesitates for a second.) (Is there a table that needs free food?) He will give it to the customers for free. (He heads over to the tables.) It’s a good idea. – Come in. / – We were mistaken. He eats in the kitchen. It’s a wrong order. I don’t want to waste food. (It’s a treat for himself.) I would eat it if you give it to me. Let me have one more first. – Let me have one more first. / – You can finish it. (Why did Junha decide to go on a diet?) I had my first child at the age of 42. When the parents of my son’s friends gather around, I am the oldest. (He is the oldest among the parents.) I am much older than the rest. My son likes to play soccer. He likes to kick a ball by Han River. I don’t have enough stamina to play with him. The fact I am not a healthy dad disappoints me at times. Teach me how to hula hoop. Okay. (Thus, he began to exercise with his son.) – Roha. / – He is exercising with Roha. It has been a while since I saw Roha. – He grew up a lot. / – Roha grew up a lot. (Roha grew up a lot while they haven’t seen him.) – First, twist your waist a bit. / – Okay. Just move your waist. (Powerful spins) Don’t move your legs. – My goodness. / – Just move your waist like this. – You saw it, right? / – Yes. I will give it a try. Give it a try. Okay. Lately, I have been worrying a lot about the possibility of my health worsening and ruining the happiness I share with my wife and son. (To protect his happiness) I have the early symptoms of diabetes. I am close to having high blood pressure. In a sense, this project is something I desperately need. (Junha’s journey of becoming healthy starts now.) Junha was on the verge of tears. – I could feel his sincerity. / – That was sad. – Among the ones we watched, / – I’m tearing up. his video touched our hearts the most. – His son was in the video too. / – I know. It was what I wanted to say the most. Thanks to the son I had at a late age, I am having the happiest time of my life. But the patterns of my life are different – from those of other people. / – That’s right. – You work in the evening. / – Yes. I know I should play with my son during the day on weekends, but I always end up drinking the day before – and sleeping. / – Right. When I actually go outside to play with him, – I lack stamina. / – It’s exhausting. I can’t play with him because it’s exhausting. It breaks my heart. – That’s right. / – That was a big part of it. – You know, / – Yes? Junha had a son at a late age – and you had a daughter / – That’s right. – at a late age. / – That’s right. Do you feel like your stamina is lacking as well? It’s on my mind as well. I try to take care of my health. – You do it for your daughter. / – That’s right. – As a member of the family, / – That’s right. I need to be healthy to make everyone happy. – Everyone needs to be healthy. / – To protect. That’s right. Let’s study the results together. With a BMI of 32.9, he is obese. His body fat percentage isn’t too high. That means he makes a lot of effort. – Although he works out, / – He has a lot of muscles. the large quantities of carbohydrates he ate became sugar glucose. The others’ blood sugar level wasn’t over 100mg per dL. But his blood sugar level is over 100mg per dL. Just like a year ago, we diagnosed that he is showing the early signs of diabetes. Thankfully, clinical trials show people who are in the same or slightly worse condition improve when they change the diet and work out diligently. The pancreas’s ability to process sugar improves again. You can go back to having the blood sugar level you had in your 20s and 30s. – Thank goodness. / – That’s a relief. – But the effects / – Thank goodness, Junha. are irreversible if he doesn’t change, right? It will become harder to reverse the effects. Even if you improve the ability to process sugar, it’s much harder to improve the narrowed blood vessels in the brain and heart. We want to know what kind of solutions you have for Junha. Since Junha has all the problems of the other three participants… He is like the Avengers. He needs all the solutions. So he should brush his teeth before and after meals, eat child-sized portions, – follow the 2030 method, / – He got the combination. – eat one salad a day, / – He got all the solutions. drink a glass of water for a shot of alcohol, and drink only 3 times a week. – These are the solutions. / – Write them down. (The solutions for Week 1 and 2) (Junha got all 6 solutions) (of the other participants.) (The goal of “Just One Month”) (Making a lifelong habit, Losing 4kg of body fat) They will only be solutions if you follow them. The suggestion itself – holds no power. / – You are right. The four subjects were given customized solutions. Let’s see how well they followed them. – Let’s watch Hyunhee’s clip first. / – Okay. I see that you got some groceries. (Hyunhee excitedly bought groceries.) Would you show me what you bought? You bought toothpaste. (Tool 1, Toothpaste) You bought the spicy toothpaste. I bought toothpaste. So there are spicy ones. The spicy and refreshing one works the best. (Jasson goes through the bags.) – I am touched, honey. / – Why? Look at this. (Tool 2, Portable toothbrush set) This is the first time you bought a dental travel kit. I usually don’t brush my teeth once I leave home. The dental travel kit made Jasson so happy. (Jasson must have gone through some difficult times.) (She began to brush her teeth before every meal.) – You brushed your teeth diligently. / – Yes. It reduces your appetite. (She followed the solutions diligently.) After work, I usually lie down on the bed and fall asleep. But I am brushing my teeth. I am brushing my teeth. (Hyunhee’s Talk Concert) (Hyunhee’s Teeth-brushing concert) Brushing my teeth got me through a few crises. I feel like my stomach has gotten smaller. (She checks the effects of brushing her teeth.) I feel like I am no longer gluttonous. (She feels like she is no longer gluttonous.) – That habit reduces your appetite. / – That’s right. Here is an important conclusion. I know the way now. I know how to control my cravings. I wasn’t drunk. She is having a talk show while brushing her teeth. (The host of the first-ever teeth brushing concert) (However…) (Hyunhee’s crisis) – What is this? / – She let go of herself. In the second week, the program I am in had a team dinner at a barbecue restaurant. I took out the tray to eat. In the second week, I need to eat food from this tray. (She took the children’s tray to the get-together!) You can put 600g of meat in here, right? If you give me scissors, I will cut the pork belly so that the pieces are – paper-thin. / – I can put meat in here. I will put it in here and show people. (Crispy outside and moist inside) – It looks delicious. / – My goodness. – It has been grilled nicely. / – Seriously. Can’t you eat more after you finish a tray of food? Of course not. I can refill it 2 or 3 times. Of course not. I can refill it 2 or 3 times. What are you talking about? No one said I can’t refill it. Then what’s the point of using a tray? Please turn off the camera. (She asks to turn off the camera.) The doctors never told me that refills weren’t allowed. So I had a few refills. I didn’t eat a lot in comparison to how much I ate in the past. You had so many refills. (I can’t hear you.) This is the second refill. No one told me that refills weren’t allowed. (This is how she justifies her choices.) After I had 2 or 3 refills, people asked me if I am really on a diet. If I had eaten without the tray, I would have had many servings of meat and stew without a thought. The tray made me see how much I was eating. It gave me the strength to control myself. I realized that following the solutions helped me overcome the difficult times. The tray and doctors’ solutions helped me overcome the difficult times without much stress. Seriously. I will keep this habit for the rest of my life. – That’s nice. / – We will keep our eyes on you. Put down the cell phone and get up already. Get up. What do singers like Suzy eat to stay so skinny? They don’t eat. They don’t eat? – They don’t eat much. / – Here is my problem. Even when I am on a diet, I don’t think about eating less. I think about what I should eat to lose weight. That’s a problem, right? Most of them don’t eat. They detox their bodies. Most of them do that. They get rid of toxins in their bodies. Since I don’t have work today, I will go a day without food. My organs need to rest. I will detox my body. Then you should go outside. Do you want to go and eat something tasty? Do you want to go to a buffet? (Joking) Get up and brush your teeth. I will detox my body. I won’t eat anything. – Let’s get it. / – The packed food is reassuring. You can walk outside and have a change of scenery. I think refocusing your attention in a healthy way is the best. – Let’s go. / – Will you go to a campground? (They go to a campground.) When I am home, I stay in bed. Since I have no energy, – I always stay in bed. / – That’s a good idea. My husband made a plan to go outside with me. – It’s good to be outside, right? / – It’s good. I got my toothbrush since I came outside. (Brushing her teeth outside became a habit.) It has been a while since you got it. It has been a while. Back in the day, we got pork belly and ramyeon – from a mart first. / – That’s right. Although we eat them often, they are a must at a campground. They are a must for some reason. We should go and buy meat. I won’t eat it, but you should eat it. I don’t need to eat it. Please eat it. – I want to help you. / – Don’t do that. – Why not? / – Eating is helping. (What was your honest thought?) Firstly, the barbecue was on my mind. It’s best to have it with ssamjang and kimchi. I tagged along in order to eat food. To be honest, I was determined to have a cheat day. I will have my food. (I will detox my body.) You… Why do you look happy? People who are on a diet usually go… – That’s not how this diet works. / – Like this. That’s good. I haven’t seen you this excited for a long while. – Really? / – Yes. You usually eat ox bone soup in the car. – I usually have a proper meal. / – She does – in the car. / – Seolleongtang, – pho, and such. / – Isn’t it hard to do that? If there is a bump, she jumps with the food so it doesn’t spill. I am really good at having a proper meal in the car. – It was my first time / – She’s having a banana. to eat something light like a banana in the car. – Good job. / – Bananas are tasty. Let’s enjoy camping. Gosh, it’s cold. It’s cold. (They arrive at a campground in Yongin.) – This is romantic. / – This is. I love the vibe. – This is romantic. / – This is… (The highlight of camping, pork belly appears.) – My goodness. / – Do you hear that sound? (Sizzling) – You can hear it. / – I can hear it. (This is the sound of camping.) It looks delicious. It’s hard to eat it like that at home. The meat you eat at a campground – is tastier than usual. / – That’s right. I don’t know why it’s so tasty. You breathe in the air with it. – Seriously. / – The meat you cook over a bonfire is incredible. – This is the highlight. / – That’s right. I moved a lot today. To get these ingredients… (She repeats her words in a suspicious manner.) I moved continuously. – It’s burnt. / – You know, I will eat a piece since I moved continuously. Hold on. This is a piece of pork belly you would love. – Really? / – Yes. May I eat a piece? It’s hot. (The meat goes into her mouth.) – Gosh. / – How does it taste? You like crispy pieces like this one. (Her chopsticks begin to move quickly.) (Eating) Gosh. Jasson, what we said this morning was completely meaningless. I said I will empty my body since I have no work today. I’ll brush my teeth again from tomorrow. Hurry up and brush your teeth. Come on.
