The most recent diet that’s caught the internet public’s attention is The Morning Banana Regimen, designed by Hitoshi Watanabe and promoted in his book by the same name. One of the reasons why it’s so popular is the fact that it’s very simple and provides excellent results. The diet’s main rule is to eat bananas in the morning and drink plenty of water at room temperature throughout the day.
Can something this simple give results?
Surprisingly yes! Hitoshi was the first to try out this diet regimen after trying a number of other diets with no success. He was feeling frustrated and decided to create his own diet regimen with the help of his wife, who is a pharmacist. After seeing the diet is very effective he started recommending people to try it and all of them were successful at losing the extra weight.
Before breakfast you need to eat 1 banana and drink 1 glass of water right afterwards. Then you shouldn’t eat anything before lunch.
Bananas are rich in starch, a special type, which promotes weight loss. It goes straight to the large intestine without dissolving in the small intestine. The starch starts fermenting once it reaches the large intestine where bacteria turn it into short chain fatty acids. It also improves your GI tract’s function and feeds your cells, making you healthier than ever.
You should watch out not to overload your stomach. You can normally but follow the 80/20 rule: Eat 80% of your meal and leave 20% in the plate.
You can only consume raw bananas and wait at least 20 minutes after consuming one. If you still feel hungry feel free to eat another one.
