When I have a shake in the morning I usually put 1/2 a banana in it but recently someone told me to cut out bananas since its more a starch than fruit. Thoughts anyone?
I've often wondered the same thing. Bananas are high in carbs and sugar, but on the good side one large banana has 3 grams of fiber, 15% of the recommended daily vitamin C and alot of potassium which is very hard to get in a natural diet. Personally, I don't get enough fruit as is and I LOVE bananas so they aren't going to leave my kitchen anytime soon. I usually have one everyday and I like to eat them before workouts to take advantage of the carb/sugar boost. Hope this helps :-)
I heard that 1 banana (and only that 1 banana) enough to get you through 40 min of a hard/ intense workout.. so maybe it is?
