B- What are the health benefits of a banana? ~ By: Christine Marquette
Now for several decades there have been many different diets that have involved the use of bananas, various fad diets. One of the latest fad diets has recently come up in Japan and it is called The Morning Banana Diet. Now this latest theory of the banana and weight loss states that you should eat a couple of bananas in the morning with a cup of milk and then basically you can eat whatever you want the rest of the day and it is supposed to help you lose weight.
Of course there is no scientific validity to this diet, there is no research that shows that it actually helps with weight loss and most of the studies of various other banana diets also have come to the same conclusion that it really doesn’t help significantly with weight loss.
Bananas themselves are a very healthy food, they do have a lot of different vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin C and Potassium. They also have a lot of vitamin B 6, they have a lot of fiber so they are a very good and healthy food compared to a lot of other things, they are fairly low calorie in the sense that one medium sized banana has probably about 120 to 160 calories. Now that might sound a lot to some other fruits but again compared to a lot of other foods such as say a big juicy steak or a pork chop or maybe a bag of chips tends to have a lot fewer calories plus you get a lot more nutrition from it and with all that extra fiber it can help you feel more full so bananas can definitely be included as a part of a healthy diet to achieve weight loss but bananas by themselves they are not going to cause you to lose any extra weight, they’re not going to do anything to actually boost your metabolism or cause your body to burn more fat so again bananas are not necessarily going to increase your weight loss but they can be included as part of a healthy diet to ultimately achieve weight loss.
