Go on a Banana Diet


The Telegraph has an article on the "Morning Banana Diet" and I am reading in this week's Time magazine that there is a Banana shortage. The rules for this diet from are :

Eat a banana for breakfast
  • You can eat more than one, and in fact the inventor of the diet often ate four bananas in the morning, but don’t stuff yourself to the point of fullness or discomfort
  • Eat only raw, uncooked, unfrozen bananas
  • Some variants of the diet allow other fruit to be substituted
  • If other fruit is substituted, some variants require it be restricted to one type of fruit per meal
  • If you are still hungry 15 or 20 minutes after your banana, you can eat other food (the inventor of the diet sometimes ate a rice ball two and a half hours later, about 200 calories worth)


Read more at the website. I tried to find the book that is supposed to have started this craze on but found none listed. I love bananas and don't mind being on this diet. :)
