This Woman Ate Nothing But Bananas For 12 Days

Whoa, what???

Most of us love bananas for their taste and the numerous health benefits they provide. They go great in smoothies, baked goods (can you say banana nut muffins?), and are a nice addition to your nutella crepe. Hell, even monkeys are known to fight other monkeys just for a bushel of bananas.

Not only are bananas great for blood sugar levels (and tasting damn delicious), but they also help with digestive health and weight loss, relieve hypertension, keep your heart and kidney healthy, alleviate cramps associated with working out, and much more. They make a great snack for adults and children alike, and make you full so you don't overeat other food

On the downside, because of the high levels of starch in each one, this can lead to constipation if you consume too many.

Which is why I don't think I could do anything like what Yulia Tarbath decided to do. She went 12 days straight without eating anything besides bananas.

Bananas are a great source of nutrients. But are they everything our body needs? Probably not.

Tarbath ate nothing but bananas for 12 straight days. She drank plenty of water, got ample amounts of rest, and exercised regularly. This type of diet is known as "mono-fruiting," where you only eat one type of fruit for a certain period of time. 

Tarbath claims she noticed an improvement in her overall emotional and physical health, which is pretty amazing considering that she literally ONLY ate bananas.

The first thing she said she noticed was an improvement in her digestion and that she no longer experienced stomach pains. She also said she began to feel very relaxed and stress-free. This means she was able to focus on her passions and creativity instead of her stress triggers.

Other than just noticing health improvements, she also noticed that some of her previous aliments began to go away.
