    Clearly it would work- if all you ate is the two bananas.

    Alright I did some searching and while most articles cited an 04' University of Colorado study I could not find actual facts. Strangely enough I did find this on Dole's website enjoy. emoticon

    If you like bananas by all means eat them if they fit into your plan.
But this *secret* of 2 bananas=2lbs week weight loss is just plain silly.

There was an actual fad banana diet in Japan, so maybe that is where this came from.

    Do you own a banana company???? emoticon

    I would eat green bananas over rice any day, growing up in the West Indies green bananas were a staple in our diet, we cooked them with salt water fish, okra pumpkin and what ever else you prefer and you make a soup out of it. Today I had three green bananas cooked , with fish and some veggies yummy.

    It looks like sparks has a lot of educated people thinking about this saying how is this possible... this doesn't make sense... I agree

    it doesnt in my culture they are actually very fattening bc the way they are cooked, usualy fried. I doubt it will make you loose weight.

    Not so sure about this.

    Has there been a scientific study about this? Sounds like an old wives tale.
REVJVH 7/22/2010 5:11:00 PM

    Sounds like a gimmick to me. I'd want to see some scientific evidence of this.
RENIDAY1 7/22/2010 4:45:00 PM

    Exactly how does that work?? I don't want to burst your bubble but it just doesn't sound right...

    Why/how would a green banana help you lose 2 lbs a week?
