As soon as Hitoshi Watanabe presented the morning banana regimen in his book “The morning banana diet”, it became a worldwide hit.
It is extremely simple and does not require any specific changes in your dietary habits, but just to eat bananas in the morning, and drink water at room temperature.
Can it be this easy?
Apparently, it can. Watanabe tried to lose weight in a number of ways and none provided positive effects, so together with his wife Sumiko, a pharmaceutist, he managed to find the one that gave the desired results.
The couple created a method, known as the Morning Banana Diet, which helped a lot of people to finally solve the issue with extra pounds.
Their solution was simple and easy: you should eat a fresh banana and drink a glass of water as soon as you wake up in the morning, and eat nothing until lunch.
Bananas are full of resistant starch which actively stimulates the weight loss process. It does not dissolve in the small intestine and goes directly into the large intestine where the fermentation process begins.
It is converted into short-chain fatty acids by bacteria, and thus feeds cells and improves the healthy function of the gastrointestinal tract.
