Source – A weeklong fad diet that involves eating thirty bananas a day in an effort to lose weight is known as “Banana Island.” Instagram users (the diet has a reputation of being popular among fashion bloggers) call the diet “a trip to Banana Island” alongside photos displaying extreme weight loss. The odd eating habit first caught on in Asia a few years back, but if search trends are any indication, it appears to be back en vogue: Compared to last month, 31 percent more users are now searching for “how many calories in a banana” on Yahoo.
One small problem: Assuming they’re not a total hambeast, to maintain weight, women are supposed to eat around 1800 calories a day. To lose weight, they’re supposed to go around 1200 calories per day. But a diet of 30 bananas a day would leave us with over 3000 calories, an insane 770g of carbs and 420g of sugar, roughly the equivalent of six Oreo McFlurries from McDonald’s. That’s a diet I’d be 1000% more in on, really like the growth potential there and you’d lose weight when they have to cut off several of your limbs due to all the diabetes. Maybe a break-even overall.
Either way, I love the hustle, lack of foresight, and complete gullibility from all of these women; all three are major qualities I find appealing in a potential wife. There’s no shame in searching the Instagram or Twitter #bananaisland hashtag and sliding into a DM or two and hoping for the best.
Also, 1, 3, 4, 2 is the order in which I’d take them to Banana Island, Hot Dog Peninsula, and Whiskey Flavored Egg Noodle Gulf. I’m willing to be coerced into flipping 2 and 4, though, little too much delt action on the latter.
