Banana diet test results are in

After completing a 30-day all-banana diet, Black Mountain resident and self-described “fruitarian” Montana “Tanner” Leet received the results of a blood test he ordered to show how eating nothing but bananas for an entire month affected his body.

At first, Leet misinterpreted some of the test information and mistakenly believed the regime had caused his Lp(a), or lipoprotein, levels to become elevated. Later, he discovered the Lp(a) number is related to genetics and had nothing to do with his banana consumption. He explains the test results and clarifies with two videos on YouTube.
