Have you heard about the new "BANANA DIET"? It's supposed to increase your metabolism.

Here’s how it works -

1. A banana and glass of lukewarm water for breakfast

2. Eat anything you like for lunch or dinner, as long as it’s before 8 p.m.

3. A three o’clock snack is recommended

4. No desserts after meals

5. Go to bed before midnight

“The human body has three essential nutrients ? carbohydrates, fat and protein ? The golden rule is to balance these three nutrients and a daily calorie intake.”

Bananas help people lose weight because they contain resistant starch, which ferments in your large intestine, creating by-products that block conversion of some carbohydrates into fuel, so replacing ordinary carbs with the resistant starch in bananas can boost fat burning. And banana fiber bulks up in your stomach, so you feel full for longer. There’s a healthy way to do the banana diet which makes sense and includes exercise
