Where ever we live in the world you can’t help but notice how Japan and now perhaps China tend to be at the forefront when it comes to new trends especially technology ones.
But now something slightly different is emerging from Japan it seems there is a new diet craze that is sweeping the nation over there, which is based around bananas it isn’t sorely banana-based but more this is something that you eat.
At a particular time during the day this new diet craze for fad which ever you prefer, is called the Morning Banana Diet, things have got so bad in Japan that there is a shortage of bananas in shops that sell them. The Japanese have become so obsessed and want to be on the leading edge of the latest diet trends, the main reason it has become so popular with young women in Japan is, some woman apparently lost 26 pounds on the Morning Banana Diet.
Things have got to extremes now with bananas in supermarkets, several large ones that sell them are now running out, at 12 p.m. and others are running out at 3 p.m. in the afternoon, so if you are interested in how this particular method of dieting works. Here it is in a nutshell
The Morning Banana Diet.
- Breakfast have one banana and a glass of water
- Have anything you like for your lunch or dinner just as long as it’s before 8 p.m.
- A having a snack at 3 p.m. is suggested
- Don’t have deserts after meals
- And lastly go to bed before midnight
The banana diet and its origins came about because a pharmacist whose husband was overweight, and came up with a diet plan he lost 37 pounds following this particular method, the pharmacist who came up with the concept says that it speeds up your metabolism. And as a result her husband lost the aforementioned in weight.
However though we must state some caution here because a professor in Japan Masahiko Okada who works at a school of medicine, said that you must put into question the ethics behind this particular way of dieting. He says that the body has three basic nutrients fat, protein, carbohydrate.
And says that in order to have a healthy body it is important to have a balance, of these three essential nutrients in order to have good health. He then goes on to say that if you to take this approach then you won’t need to be swayed by certain fad diets like the banana one for example.
But what exactly do you tell people who are overweight and are willing to try anything, in order to try and shed a few pounds in the quickest shortest possible time, how long it will be before this particular diet fades into a black hole is another matter.
But really sometimes is it just best to take things into your own hands and see if something like this will work for yourself, you never really know until you try. Anyway must go and buy some more bananas as you can see I am not swayed by such fad diets.
