A fortnight ago, I started the banana diet: a diet that basically allows you to eat anything and laze around all day but at the end, awards you with a glamorous body and clear skin. Read about the methodology and my diet plan here. I was expecting this to be an easy breezy task but I was sadly, wrong. There is no such thing as a free lunch. But, was I rewarded? One click and you shall know.
In total I lost … 0 kgs. The diet basically requires you to eat only bananas and water for breakfast and replenish in banana goodness throughout the day as a snack. You can of course eat anything else in moderate amounts but caffeine is not recommended. I wonder if chocolate counts? It doesn’t mention exercise, which meant that my mind told me that I needn’t to do my twice per week 30 minutes walks in the backyard. And no… I don’t live in a palace. But I get home late and don’t want to be robbed of my new Gucci wallet. 🙂
I guess I should be thankful I didn’t gain weight. But the small logical part of my brain – which has diminished significantly after university entrance exams – tells me that what little amounts of muscle I had retained from high school compulsory sports, have now officially turned into fat. Embrace the jiggle!
Skin & body:
Surprisingly, my breasts are fuller, by approximately half a cup size. So now my new brassieres are too big and old ones too tight. Everywhere else has remained the same. I’m sure … I measured everything with a measuring tape before I started.
I have a little bit of a sweet tooth. For instance, i can eat a whole cake for myself and still gorge in chocolate and gelato afterwards. So, this diet probably suited me better than any other diet. In the first couple of days, I avoided sweets (this is generally unheard of in my life) since i had a sickly banana taste in my mouth 24/7. But then i went on a rampage and started eating all things savory to wash the disgusting aftertaste out: hot chips, pizza buffet and McDonald’s gourmet hamburgers usually do the trick.
Also, after breakfast, make sure you’re near a toilet for the coming hour. Banana on an empty stomach is surprisingly heavy and plunger-like ;P Oh and did I mention, you also grow thick dark fur and a pink butt?
If G.na can do it, then so can you! Good luck girls.
No matter what, i don’t support any diets at all. I believe in exercise and portion control. Too much or too less of anything is bad for you. Been there, done that. Though I lack self constraint, i truly hope that our readers will stick to a healthy regiment and read Chienna for years to come. Love yourself and everyone else will simply follow! mwah
And to celebrate my completion of the diet, here is a little bit of humor!
