  • Clearly it would work- if all you ate is the two bananas. - by SPIDERLOCKHART
  • 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. - by LIZZY63
  • Do you own a banana company???? emoticon - by SAL2525
    Green bananas, green plantains are some of foods that act more like fiber than carbohydrates.They contain resistant starch.
    Cold pasta and cold potatoes act in the same manner.
    I have no idea if the premise on which I am commenting is correct.
    I would recommend checking out resistant starch. Happy reading - by SPARKEL4
    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. - by LIZANAREUSS
