I have been seeing a lot of info today on something called the morning banana diet.

What is the Morning Banana Diet?

The idea of the morning banana diet is that first thing in the morning you eat a banana and a glass of water and somehow miraculously you will lose weight. does this even make sense?

  • 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.
  • If other fruit is substituted, some variants require it be restricted to one type of fruit per meal.

Sorry to burst anyones bubble but the morning banana diet is probably more of a scam than anything as the real way to lose is to restrict your diet and get more exercise.

And banana fiber bulks up in your stomach, so you feel full for longer.

    Of course a healthy way to do the banana diet includes exercise. I like the science-based version at
