The Morning Banana Diet is a very popular diet recently and gains more and more popularity. Created by some allegedly Japanese nutritionists, this diets has already raised many controversies and, according to some nutritionists, the Morning Banana Diet is not healthy.
Bananas contain many nutrients
The banana is a fruit rich in potassium, magnesium, and many other vitamins and minerals. It is also excellent to improve digestion.
Besides, bananas contain tryptophan, which is the precursor for serotonin, melatonin, and vitamin PP. Therefore, bananas also help to improve the sense of humor, premenstrual syndrome and, sleeping.
You’ll shed 8 kilos in a month with the Morning Banana Diet
According to those who promote the banana weight loss diet, those people who want to follow it must eat only a banana in the morning and will, allegedly, lose up to 8 kilos in a month, quickly and effectively.
The diet plan basically consists of having a breakfast consisting of only one banana and a warm glass of water.That’s it!
According to the creators of this diet, once the banana is combined with water, a kind of gel is formed, which fills up the stomach, automatically increasing satiety for much longer.
The Morning Banana Diet is not healthy, nutritionists say
The banana weight loss diet has already generated several criticisms for promising to lose a lot of weight in a short period of time, which is not at all healthy, according to nutritionists and doctors.
Besides, the nutritionists say that eating just a banana at breakfast could reduce the intake of other necessary nutrients.
The breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it is designed to replenish the nutrients in the body which have been lost during the sleep. Therefore, the breakfast should contain more nutrients than those offered by bananas.
Besides, losing 8 kilos in a month is, in fact, twice as much as the losing weight limit the nutritionists recommend. Thus, for a correct, healthy, and long-term weight loss (without the well-known Yo-Yo effect) you should only shed around 4 kilos a month and that can be done easily by simply following a balanced diet.
In conclusion, nutritionists agree that the Morning Banana Diet is not healthy and those who’d like shedding few kilos should choose another weight loss diet.
