The morning banana diet is easy to follow, it is cheap and most important it does not require you to count calories or dispose of a certain food.
You should eat one banana for breakfast, but if one is not enough, eat more just try not to overeat. Fresh bananas should be consumed.
Drink one glass of water at a room temperature with the banana. If you drink coffee in the morning, wait at least 20 minutes after breakfast.
For lunch and dinner eat as you usually do. You should not limit your calories or avoid certain foods, however if you want the diet to be efficient, at least try not to eat too much fatty foods. The rule of this diet is to eat until you feel 80% full, and be careful not to overeat.
Note: Avoid eating dessert right after meals. You can consume sweet snacks around 15 pm, such as a few pieces of chocolate or a small cookie.
The best time to eat dinner is 6pm, however if it is too early for you, try not to eat dinner after 8pm.
It is very important to go to bed before midnight.
Advantages of this diet
It doesn’t require preparation of special meals which make it perfect even for the busiest people.
Bananas contain potassium and fiber, which help digestion and also reduce hunger.
The only bad sides of this diet are that it does not have any restrictions on lunch and dinner which, according to some experts, means that it can’t be that successful. The other bad side is that it does not include an exercise plan.
This diet gained publicity when Hitoshi Watanabe said that it helped him lose 37 pounds. Another famous person, Kimiko Mori, also said that she lost 7 pounds in 6 weeks with the help of this diet, which led to this diet becoming very famous in Japan.
This diet should be followed for at least 2 weeks. Many people who have tried it said that they don’t really feel like they are on a diet, so if this is the case for you, you can follow it even more than 2 weeks.
Every person is different so you can’t expect everyone to have the same results. However, realistically speaking normal weight loss with this diet for 2 a week period is 6-6.5 pounds.
To get even better and faster results, avoid eating fast food, don’t overeat and most important – spend at least 30-45 minutes every day doing some kind of physical activity.
