When I first reviewed the Ultra Lite diet with my Doctor (medical supervision is required) he went over the short list of approved foods. All the foods I’m allowed to eat are regular foods that I can pick up at my local grocery store – I don’t have to go all the way to the not-so-local health food store. What surprised me the most was the incredibly short list of acceptable fruits. The only fruits I can eat are cantaloupe, watermelon, honeydew melon and strawberries – and very limited quantities of these fruits. What my Doctor did make clear is that apples, oranges and especially bananas are NOT on the list. Clearly this is due to the high number of carbohydrates or sugars in the banana.

I started doing some research about the beloved banana to see if I could find any information that would support the claim that the are not healthy. It was very difficult – everywhere I looked held the banana in high regards, stating all the benefits of the banana including it as an excellent source of potassium and fiber.

I remembered that the origination of this particular health plan – Ultra Lite was in New Zealand. I found an article that has shed some light on the poor banana and other fruits now banned from my life – An Apple a day… is that bad for you?

Honestly, I don’t anticipate bananas and other fruits always being forbidden fruit – I suspect the first stage of this diet is about seriously limiting sugars; detoxifying my body; and teaching me a new way to eat and think about food.
