Morning Banana Diet - New Japanese Dieting Craze Exposed

By Marilyn Taylor

If you're interested in the new morning banana diet craze, then this article will tell you everything you need to know. Specifically, we are going to look at why this diet has become so popular, if it really does work, what you need to do to follow this diet, and some of the possible side effects this diet may have.

By the time you have finished reading this article, you will be able to make your own mind up about whether this is a diet worth following.

The morning banana diet first started in Japan. It was created by a Japanese couple who posted the diet on a popular social networking site in Japan. This led to huge exposure on the internet.

In fact, the huge craze caused banana sales to skyrocket, and at one point it became very difficult to get hold of bananas in Japan. One of the leading importers of bananas to Japan claimed their sales increased by 25%.

So how does the morning banana diet work? The basic idea is to eat one banana in the morning for breakfast, along with a glass of water. You then proceed to eat your normal lunch and evening meals.

By replacing your breakfast with a banana (as opposed to your usual breakfast) you create a calorie deficit which allows you to gradually shed those extra pounds without a huge diet change or lots of exercising.

While this diet may have some merits (it encourages you to eat a regular healthy breakfast, for example) it isn't a miracle weight loss diet. Unfortunately, there is no real short-cut to losing weight apart from a healthy lifestyle, well balanced diet and regular exercise.
