Banana Diet


The latest craze in japan which has people going crzy right now is the banana diet. They say have 2 bananas and warm water and you can eat anything that you want for the rest of the day. Because of this fad, sales of bananas has gone up. How could eating a piece of fruit in the morning then allow you to ingest as many calories as like the rest of the day and still lose weight? Does this sound a bit strange? Does it make sense? I smell something and it sure aint bananas!

I don't know it might work. I have heard that the bannana is the most whole (as far as nutrients/vitamins go) than any other fruit. It is my choice of fruit for my kids for that reason as well as being one of the least expensive as well. I would think that it wold fill you up to much to eat two of them that you really wouldn't be able to eat much after that so it could restrict your diet and calorie intake.

I wish a diet could be that simple. I happen to prefer berries. I know they recommend a banana as your last food before you fast for surgery; I mean I agree with Natalie, I believe they fill you up!

Don't you wish it was a simple as that? I mean, eat a few bananas in the morning, and then it's pizza and ice cream the rest of the day. Yippee!:)

Bananas help people lose weight because they contain resistant starch, which ferments in your large intestine, creating by-products that block conversion of some carbohydrates into fuel, so replacing ordinary carbs with the resistant starch in bananas can boost fat burning. And banana fiber bulks up in your stomach, so you feel full for longer. There’s a healthy way to do the banana diet which makes sense and includes exercise at http://www.dolenutrition.com/bananadiet/bananadiet.htm
