fter experiencing challenges maintaining her workflow, diet, and all her daily obligations at home, Yulia Tarabath, a nutritionist and motivational coach, decided to do some experiment.
Everyone may be aware that bananas contain more calories that any other fruit, but she decided to test the effects of banana consumption by eating nothing but bananas for 12 days. Also called ‘mono-fruiting’, this method is a way of complete detoxification.
While every nutritionist will definitely advise you against eating one food for all your daily meals, on the premise that you won’t get all the essential nutrients for your body, you can still achieve positive results if you’re well prepared.
This worked for Yulia and her husband, as they took to eating only bananas for 12 days. Since they’ve their own fruit garden, they had no trouble in preparing their meals.
With bananas, they remained full for a longer time period, thanks to the high nutrient content of the fruit.
To begin with, Yulia’s digestion improved and her stomach pains disappeared. She also realized that she was more focused and calm when working, in addition to being more creative and active.
Furthermore, Yulia experienced some significant health improvements. After the 12 days, her high blood pressure, candida, and hormonal imbalance were all gone. Likewise, she lost her excess weight.
Thus, regarding the weight loss and health benefits that resulted from Yulia’s experiment, it’s suffice to say that mono-fruiting can be beneficial if you’re prepared for it.
However, not everyone can perform this experiment; it causes a really drastic change for your metabolism and body in general. Individuals with thyroid complications should also avoid it.
It’s also advisable to consult your doctor before attempting this experiment.
