A new weight loss craze that started in Japan has crossed the ocean. It is called the "Morning Banana Diet". The dieter is supposed to eat a banana in the morning and lose weight. However, there is more; no desserts, no snacks, no eating after 8:00, and be in bed before midnight.
Nutritionist Lisa Drayer, says, "You can't say that bananas are the magic bullet. But they are nutritious foods to add to your diet, especially a weight loss diet". Drayer says that this diet may work at first because bananas are high in fiber and vitamins and low in calories. She also says to remember, that fad diets never work.
