Banana Diet is an effective and tasty short-term weight loss method.
Bananas have very high content of potassium, a mineral that is essential to the normal muscular function. They are rich in dietary fiber and contain the entire range of vitamin B-thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), folic acid (B6) and very little B5 and B12. Compared to an apple, it has four times the protein, twice the carbohydrates, three times the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice all the other vitamins and minerals.
Bananas also contain copper, chromium, fluoride, manganese, selenium and zinc.
On the menu of the Banana Diet: 3 bananas and 3 glasses of fat-free milk per day.
Divide the allowed amount of food into the daily number of meals that you are used to.
Dieting period: from 1 day to 3 days. No longer!
Expected weight loss during 3 days: about 5 - 5.5 lbs.
The diet is strict; please, consult your physician before you start.
You can also make Banana Diet enjoyable for your face. Prepare an easy face mask which will be a good moisturizer for dry skin. Mash a banana with a fork, add 1 teaspoon of honey (optional) and mix the mass. Spread the mashed banana/the mass evenly on your clean face. Allow to remain for 10 minutes, then rinse off with warm water and pat dry with a soft towel.
