While today, a banana diet is very popular around the world, since it allows people to lose up to five pounds in three days. A tangible plus of a banana diet is that it is easily in keeping it, because a banana is a satisfying and tasty fruit.

Bananas contain a lot of useful substances and at the same time have cleaning properties – they remove toxins and stimulate the work of the intestines. Bananas are rich in vitamins, as well as in potassium, which has a beneficial effect on the metabolism and skin condition.

The disadvantages of a banana diet for weight loss are attributed only to the scarcity of the diet (but this minus concerns all mono diets), so people with various chronic diseases should be careful with this method of losing weight.

Not all bananas are suitable for this diet

For example, you should avoid eating green or too strong bananas that do not seem ripe, also you should not eat small bananas. Choose a ripe, soft fresh fruit with a bright yellow skin.

In addition, for a banana diet, dried bananas are not good – they are several times more in calories than fresh bananas. The same goes for fried bananas. So, only fresh, ripe, large and yellow bananas are suitable for this diet, they help quickly lose weight.
