Banana And Milk Diet... etc

Hi there, I'm a lazy first poster, i want to lose some weight fast, just a short term fix.
I'm not drastically overweight, just need to be slimmer for a while, so i'm not looking for a huge new diet plan.
just something to shed a few kilos.

The best thing i've seen on the net that sounds acceptable to me is a banana and milk diet.
Though all i can find about it are small websites promoting it without any real feedback or depth of information.
3 bananas and 3 glasses of milk a day.
is that enough to keep me healthy, for say, 3 weeks?
is it ok to drink water with this diet too? or are the 3 glasses of milk all i'm allowed.
Does anyone know the benefits/ downsides of this diet?
Thanks very much =D

Mike.

Are you kidding me??

Bananas and milk? you are talking about 800 calories a day!!!

I would strongly recommend not doing this fad diet!

I don't think anybody could stick with that diet very long. I tried Slim Fast and similar shakes, and couldn't stand having sweet stuff for most of my meals.

Would you lose weight on it? Most likely. Your body would also eat its own muscle tissue, severely weakening your heart and wreaking havoc on your metabolism so that when you do begin eating normally again you will gain all of the weight back and will gain weight more easily in the future.

In other words, DON'T DO IT!

"Is it ok to drink water with this diet too?" - Seriously???

Water has no calories. Without water we die in about 2 days. Water is not going to make you fat.

It sounds an abolsoutely terrible way to lose weight. Yes you would lose weight surviving on that little food, but your health would severely pay for it
