Much has been talked about banana diet that has become a craze in Japan. Sale of banana has increased by 80% and the stores would have run out stock of banana by noon. It all started when an actress mentioned it in Japan's social network website that she has lost weight by going on banana diet.

There are various versions of the diet. First is for you to eat banana in the morning with room temperature water and for the rest of the day, you can go on with your usual meals. The second version is to eat banana before each meal, 2 before breakfast, 2 before lunch and 1 before dinner.

I am gonna give it a try and will track the progress. I am gonna follow the second version as it sounds logical. When you take banana before meal, you are spoiling your appetite from taking heavy meal. You end up eating less and of course you'll have less calorie to burn and not much left to be stored as fat. I have started yesterday night and weight was 70kg (based on my bathroom scale, it could be heavier). I will chart the progress here.
