Cho-katsu (Revitalizing your intestines) 

This method aims to improve “intestinal flora” of yours. Good intestinal flora means you have many good bacteria inside your intestines. Those include ones which are said to work positively to losing weight. By maintaining good balance of bacteria inside, your intestines will be cleaned and hence body weight will come down. It’s also said to prevent constipation and improve metabolism. To improve intestinal flora, you can warm your body by staying in bath tub with 38-40 degrees Celsius hot water, or drink something hot to warm the body up from inside.  By regularly doing those activities, your intestinal flora will gradually improve.
