30 Bananas a Day!

My parents are iffy on letting me eat more than one durian per week because of the stories they've heard of it killing people :P, Is it really that bad or are people just trying to scare us away from it because of the bad smell?

aside from the 30% fat i mean i wouldn't eat them every meal..

Interesting question, as many here in southeast Asia think so. I've heard locals say they can't eat durian because it causes high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and a myriad other things. However, current research shows that durian actually decreases blood pressure, and they are currently developing a cholesterol lowering drug from monthong extract. 

I'll be writing an article on this question at my site, durianyear.blogspot.com. Stay tuned for a more complete answer!

I've been eating it almost every day for the last two weeks and I am doing great!

From the research I have done it is only a problem if you mix it with alcohol because it disrupts the enzyme that breaks down alcohol.

I also think it is best as a mono-meal because mixing with other fruits can cause gas and bloating.

someone told me that durian causes people to trip out, similar to LSD, and that people have been known to stay tripping out.

it's most likely an urban myth. Then again .....

There's something funky going on with durian! I intend to get to the bottom of it :)

It has tryptophan which is one of these feel-good amino acids that is also in turkey and is sold as a supplement for depression. It gives a really nice-feeling buzz. It is known in Asia as an aphrodesiac!

I remember when we were in Thailand a few years ago with DR and Free, they said that you had to make sure you were WELL hydrated before eating durian and from memory they ate there durian mostly at dinner time as.their final meal of the day.

That's the way I always eat it too.

any durian is tsty to me i did not had any that as bad yet maybe i like it too much

chris are you australian? why are you in thailand?

I sure hope not!! Don't plan on giving it up anytime soon :)

Durian is very high in bad fats, so its not something to eat daily. You can eat just the double amount as you can eat avocado in the rules of 811.
