The "Banana Diet" from Japan, myth or reality?


Banana Diet is a very popular diet and is well known in Japan. Many people claim to have great success with weight loss since others say they are not for them. This plan is not the fastest way to lose weight, but it’s exceptionally healthy.

The banana diet consists of eating bananas in the morning for breakfast and with water (preferably at room temperature) and nothing else. After that, the day begins, then you can have a sweet snack all day, and you can literally eat what you want for lunch and dinner (although meals should be reasonable in size).


People who defend this diet say that bananas have enzymes that help us burn fat. Others say that banana has starch that makes people feel full, so people eat less during the day and lose weight. Both statements can give you a hint of truth, but by taking bananas, a person will probably have fewer calories than usual for breakfast, and drinking lot of water is also an excellent way to remove calories from your diet. These reasons are combined with a short list of things you should not take which include alcohol, dairy products, and desserts.

Another thing you should know is that bananas are filled with potassium and fiber. Filling your stomach with fiber will surely make you feel full longer, so it will regulate your appetite and even the desire to squeeze on junk food as well. Since this banana diet is visualized to work that way, you will really lose weight without difficulty.


You have to remember that bananas do not burn fat. It’s not a fat-fighting food. The only thing that this diet does is that it helps you suppress your appetite for food. While this may be true, your food intake should be carefully selected. You always have to make the right decision with the food you eat.

This diet creates a very strict eating habit that is difficult to maintain, but it promotes healthy eating habits. There is no doubt that you will see results with this diet, but it’s the same for the water if you follow the list of foods you should not eat.

If you are interested in a diet and weight loss plan that will allow you to eat what you want, try the banana diet. All you have to do is eat a few bananas before each meal. Bananas are rich in fiber and potassium, which are very healthy. Remember, this diet is not a guarantee that you will lose a lot of weight.

There is no guarantee how much weight can be lost when you are on a diet of bananas.

      Despite some disagreement in the dieting world as to whether or not bananas have a place in a weight loss diet, bananas, as with most fruits, are incredibly nutritious and can contribute to a healthy, balanced diet, whether you are trying to lose weight or not.
