Default Banana lover here/ want to start a "banana diet"

I woke up this morning craving one of my favorite foods: banana with peanuts. The craving is so strong, I started elaborating recipe ideas of ground banana with peanut.

I love bananas so much that I can have them (and only them) for days...won't get tired of them and would have more anytime

Then the thought of eating only food that I LOVE and still lose weight crossed my mind and I absent-mindedly googled "banana diet" and woah!!! It does exist and (apart from the fact that it's a mono food and therefore fad diet)seems to work wonders!

Basically, it requires eating 30 bananas a day and just that. Truth is ... I was easily doing half of that on my own, only stopping because I knew bananas are too sugary. Most of the time, I stopped just because of the gilt.

I live in a tropical country and bananas here are so tasty, with such a nice flavor! In addition, they are cheap and easy to get.

I want to try it out. Actually I'm more than interested about it. I'm quite excited about it and want to check if someone's tried this (or another mono fruit diet) and how it worked.

P.S: I have researched the ups and downs of this diet, with all the negatives that go with it, so I wish to say that I'd preferably not get advice dwelling on the dangers of it.

Thx! I'm salivating...just thinking about it!

I've not done this, but as part of a larger vegan community I've heard/read about it and only saw mostly negative things. Sorry I don't have anything positive to share, I wish you luck on your journey.
Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.

I am not sure it would be very nurtitionally balanced so would avoid it.

I love a banana as much as the next guy, ideally before a run, but 30 a day? Nope. Not even 15.

The reason is protein and fats, not to mention other vitamins and minerals. You might not be getting enough.

It's not so much a danger issue. You would just start looking and feeling like sh!t.
