Hello everyone, so I can’t believe I did 7 whole days of eating nothing but bananas! Sheesh, two years ago I never would of tried this, but since connecting more with nature over the last year or so, this decision came very natural and coincides with my new understating and appreciation of the absolute beauty of nature
Here are some quick facts about this fruit with the funny name👇🏾
**When you do this, it’s important to make sure your bananas are ripe, meaning they must have brown spots or patterns on their skin not too yellow**
I’ve broken down how my experience went in to sections, so you can easily see how I felt each day . Done in a note form
Money Spent – £3
Bananas Eaten – 20
Thoughts – its hilarious to me that I’m only going to eat bananas!
No washing up to do is a nice change
Went to bed 00:30 but struggled to fall asleep! That never happens to me, the energy was flowing through me, took me about an hour and a half. I reckon it’s because my body wasn’t used to that amount of bananas in one day! 😳🍌
Money Spent – £1
Bananas Eaten – 16 (1 fried)
Thoughts – Our bodies burn off banana calories SUPER quick, you go from feeling fine to hungry out of nowhere
The bananas I had straight after dance class felt a-maze-ing, not sure why, but just felt better then any other time I ate ’em
Had one fried banana just to add something different to my day…was nice
Money Spent – £1.50
Bananas Eaten- 21
Thoughts – Still amazed at how quickly this food digest
Permanent fresh breath is a nice and welcomed bonus! I don’t have that feeling we get throughout the day (including mornings) that I need to brush my teeth, my mouth always feels fresh so far
Loving how this diet makes life simpler, we spend so much time thinking about what food to eat, buying ingredients, taking it home to cook it, or waiting in a queue to buy a ready made meal eating waiting for our food to digest. Then thinking what to eat for the next meal and so on. So you literally save time on this diet, I mean, how long does it take to eat a few bananas?? Not long!

Bananas Eaten – 24
Thoughts – I’m finding this diet easy to do
I’m starting to understand why people who have done this diet speak of having an improved “oneness” with themselves. I really am starting to feel in awe of how this earth provides all that we need to live.
Living can be so simple, if you let it.
Eating only one type of food, has made me see even more clearly that there is an abundance of choice for us to eat, which I’ve been experiencing since becoming a non-animal eater anyway, but now I feel it in a more visceral way
Feeling very proud of the discipline I’m showing by doing this diet, most who do this diet add greens (spinach etc) to their meals…but I’m hardcore I wanna experience this fully😋
Money Spent -£4
Bananas Eaten – 26
Thoughts – Feels great to know I’ve not been eating toxic waste over the last 5 days 😎
Absolutely no problems with my stomach, nothing feels uncomfortable in my body in any way
Really hungry today for some reason, maybe because I exercised hard today
Feeling very relaxed
I have more appreciation of how different foods help you in different ways. A deeper knowing that food really does affect your mood, your energy, your drive for life and all in between.
Eat Fresh Feel Fresh
Eat Dead Feel Dead
How many times have you eaten so much that you say “I can’t move”? Food isn’t supposed to make us feel that way, it’s a means of getting us through our day, not stopping us from living!

Bananas Eaten- 22
Thoughts – Noticed I don’t get as thirsty as I used to, not even close. Therefore I must be more hydrated than usual. Bananas are %74 water, no doubt that’s the reason my body is happy to be hydrated like this. But, this also means you will do a number 1 in the toilet more often than usual
Looking forward to eating some different foods in two days, as amazing as this is. But I’ll definitely be eating more “raw foods” as the benefits are so good…
Never feeling tired throughout the day only at night
clearer and smoother skin
Lost some fat off my body ( not that I was fat)
Have more time in the day
Money Spent £4 (had to buy from an expensive shop -_-
Bananas Eaten – 26
Thoughts – Here it is! Last day! I did it!
I’m proud of myself , I clearly have the discipline of a level 99 Ninja
One of my aims was to lose some fat, was interested to see if I could be more chiseled and look more like he-man in just a week…
…well I do 💪🏾
I Lost one stone in a week!!!
And still have my muscle size as I work out some days (surely everyone who’s healthy works out a bit right?)
So yes, if you want to lose some fat/flab/weight, this diet will do that
If you don’t want to lose so much weight then eat more bananas…simple! As you read, I didn’t eat so much throughout the day, the norm for this diet is 30 a day, so if you don’t wish to lose too much fat then eat 30 a day…simple!
As weird as it sounds, I feel a relationship has formed with bananas, like a new friend. This is more of the “oneness” and appreciation of nature that comes through this experience. I can’t even call it a diet anymore…it’s an EXPERIENCE
I will always respect how magnificent this food is and recommend everyone to eat them! You will truly get to know how your body reacts to food and when and how much you need to eat
Until you try this you will not truly understand how amazing fruit is for our bodies
After finishing this week, I’ve started to see food differently, I don’t put any food in to my mouth now without thinking ” is this really going to benefit me?” . Great feeling, even sugary foods are getting less of a look in
Thanks for sharing in my experience I hope this can help some of you who are interested in taking a vacation on..
