No, but in my youth I went for a few days on buttermilk and green apples alone inteding to lose some weight. Very soon both my legs were covered with reddish stains. I rushed to a dermatologist, who gave me a severe warning never to repeat such irresponsible follies, and ordered me unequivocally to eat everyday a little of everything.

Well, I intended to! Went to the grocery store, and to my great surprise that's what they told me.

Some of the single food diets work for a while but are hard to do.  What is the reason you wish to consider it?

there are many ways to get to the same end.. if you share a little more about you we might have some good answers..


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

PRICELESS  

"Yes! I'll have some bene - bananas!"
But the next day an Explorer would say:
I'll have NO bananas TODAY!
Liver wouldn't handle the constant repeats!

Avoid for A secretors, so not so well.

Of course no one will do well on it long term.

It is a 3000 calorie a day diet; so it would not be great for weight loss.

I hear it is not great for teeth either.


Some experience of people who have tried the diet (This site is not neutral on the issue):

lots of conjecture here but really wanted to hear from someone who is/was following BTD...

lots of pro's and con's both diets still have what i call binge when your body craves something that your not suppose to eat ..I personally will experiment a bit but I know i do well with animal fat..... bananas have about .7g of fat per cup or banana i forget which so its not like your going without fat its just not animal fat...

if there is anyone here that has experimented can be A AB B or O BT


Thank you

What you said doesn't make sense to me. All of us here are following our individual Blood Type Diets whether we are O's or A's. You just heard from the O's and they basically said "no bananas".  You may not actually find an O here who did bananas for 30 days fad diet because they read the Blood Type Diet book first and knew better than to try an unbalanced fad diet. So maybe they don't exist here.

It would majorly screw up with my blood sugar- I can't handle that much fruit each day, and I need protein and fat to go along with the natural sugars and starches found in bananas.

I don't know if it would do you harm in the short term, but a diet of only bananas is not sustainable for humans in the long-term. Historically, people ate what was available- and that might have meant nothing but fruit for a few days if they had no other provisions and fruit was ripe- but it would be alternated with periods of nothing but meat when hunting was good and nothing was ready to harvest.

Has anybody thought of the sodium to potassium balance in the body. That much high potassium fruit with out sodium containing foods could lead to a heart attack.

No no, it's 30 bananas A DAY! That's why it couldn't be found in the store! Maybe by now they already have a fresh supply.

Hi Lawrence.. ALL your cravings will GO AWAY when you follow either the BTD, GTD or an Individualized Swami.  And that's a fact Jack!   Such a crazy thing to eat only one food.  Any nutritionest would advise anyone against such a stupid thing.

I have delved into that world.

1. The 30 bananas a day diet is NOT 30 bananas a day literally - it is the doug graham diet of 80 percent fruits, 10 percent leafy greens and 10 percent vegetable fats like avocado, raw nuts etc. they encourage diversity so basically any sweet fruit is allowed and a large array of greens, nuts, etc, but low fat not zero fat.

2. I could not sustain it for more than a few days tops. If I don't eat meat for longer than 1-2 weeks I start to get severe abdominal pains which turns into vomiting.

On the positive side I do trim down a lot when abstaining from meats, even eating a lot of fruit calories, but this was not always the case for me, I had to do a a lot  of cleaning house before this could happen.

I have a feeling that for the average person attempting that diet, the rapid cleansing will be completely overwhelming, i.e. breaking up kidney waste, gall waste, lung catarrh, all at the same time. Way too difficult. A lot of the people in that scene were already either vegan or raw vegan, so they started out fairly clean to begin with.

There are a lot of success stories on that site but I think most of those people are very shallow when it comes to overall health. So I think it's either going to work exceptionally well or not at all, and that seems to be the case as people are very polarized there. I never even bothered to post there because I knew I'd be kicked off that site in a heart beat.

One thing I do like about it is that for me sugar has wound up to be the main energy source. Meat and fat give me no sustained energy, and grains are problematic, so fruit sugar may well be the best source of energy. And many of those people are serious athletes that can run circles around folks here.

I'm still open to it working for me at some point in the future. i.e. those intestinal pains could be a violent cleansing reaction of some sort that was just too intense for me to go through, or it could just be that the diet is insane - who knows. I have serious heavy metal problems as well and as far as I can see that diet can be very dangerous for my condition.

Also for people with adrenal problems the high potassium could be a serious problem.

I love it for its intellectual purity, that we are close to bonobos and we should eat as the bonobo eats, but reality for me hasn't been able to reconcile with the theory.

I've been cleaning out my small intestine for 23+ years now so slow and steady I guess.

For the most part, an O needs adequate amounts of animal protein and animal fat in the diet for longterm, sustainable health. Some Os do great on lots of fruit, while others need to keep the fruit portions down and get higher amounts of calories from protein, fat, and complex carbs. I do better on grains than fruits in terms of both energy and blood sugar stability, though other Os find the exact opposite.

Take that fruit/nut/greens diet and add some meat (or seafood or bugs or whatever) and  you'd get something a lot healthier for Os and Bs. Even monkeys eat bugs along with fruits. I've seen videos of monkeys "harvesting" an anthill. Primates are omnivores, not herbivores.

I'm sure we share a lot of genes with bonobos- but that doesn't mean we should eat exactly like them. We're close enough biologically even to mice to get an idea of toxicity (for example, mice fed GMO corn and getting cancer is a good indicator that GMO corn may not be safe for human consumption.) But that doesn't mean we should EXACTLY follow the diet of another species!

I share more genes with a type A human than I do with any non-human primate, yet that A human and I will thrive on different macronutrient ratios. The same poisons will poison us both, and we both need lots of organic veggies, yet the A will thrive on soy and whole grains, while I thrive on red meat and low grains.

If two humans don't even thrive on the same exact diet, why should I care how monkeys eat?
