Oh, About Those Bananas

Well, I ate the bananas as I said I would. It started out 2-3 a day, but became cumbersome, so I tapered to 1-2 a day and stayed there. Even making shakes became cumbersome.

After about 9 days I lost 7 pounds and stayed there. Of course I didn’t diet in any other way, except of course the animal-free component.

Eating the bananas filled me up but also made me make more lower calorie and fresh food choices. Still, I didn’t lose any more than the 7 pounds.

So, essentially, if you want to lose 7 pounds fairly rapidly, eat 2-3 bananas a day, then taper off to 1-2 a day to stay there.

Aside: Although the dates on the scales are a month apart, I had every intention of losing more, so didn’t photograph after I lost the 7 pounds.

Something I learned about bananas is that they contain latex. So if you have a bona fide latex allergy, and you probably already know this, you shouldn’t eat bananas.

Years ago, allergies were defined differently than they are today. Where once getting a runny nose and sneezing were signs of an allergy, today it’s defined as a severe reaction causing swelling of the tongue and face and going into anaphylactic shock. You decide whether bananas are for you.

Another benefit, was that if you eat a banana first thing in the morning without anything else to eat or drink with it, it helps in the regularity department. In other words it acts like a laxative minus the intestinal cramping. If you can tolerate bananas, loading on bananas might make a good, natural cleanse, that’s also inexpensive.

That’s it on my banana story. A quick 7 pound loss that stuck with me.

Oh, the monkey part, about eating bananas like monkeys do to limber me up, didn’t work.
