Could you eat two bananas a day for the rest of your life?

Banana split, banana bread, banana shake, banana smoothie, banana chips, banana muffins, banana pancakes, banana fries, frozen banana, banana cream pie, bananas foster, peanut butter and banana sandwiches (toasted is best!), banana and chocolate fondue...um, want company? Bananas are wonderful, but if I had to eat two a day, creativity would be my best friend. Don't worry, you can do a lot with them. YOU DON'T WANT HEART FAILURE, RIGHT??? Eat your bananas. When you're too sick of them, eat a baked potato.

Knock, knock.

Who's there?

Orange.

Orange, who?

Orange you glad I didn't say banana again???

2 bananas a day unhealthy?

2 bananas a day unhealthy?

No, 2 bananas a day are not unhealthy.... if they were, they wouldn't be sold as much as they are or they would have warning labels on them. As long as you don't get too much Potassium (the minimum RDA is 3500 mg), you're fine.

Also, you are already at a healthy/low weight.... are you trying to lose weight? If you get too low on your calories (like if that's the only thing you eat), your body may go into starvation mode, you'll stop losing weight, and you'll be rather unhealthy.

Besides..... the natural sugars in it are better calories and the small amount of calories to start with is minimal. Also, 300 calories seems really high.... that's almost more than it's weight in ice cream.

(edit): I just looked it up on Yahoo (websites listed below).... a medium banana has about 105 calories, 30 g of carbs, 1 g of protein, and less than half a gram of fat. It sounds like you heard some bad information that a banana was 300 calories.

Does a banana a day keep the doctor away?

Does a banana a day keep the doctor away?

I ate two bananas a day for a year. Last week I had a blood test and there was a red flag on potassium, too high. So I am back to one banana a day now. However, I have not had a single cold or sore throat in the past year, even when everyone else in the house did. Maybe the bananas saved me!!

If you find a way to keep the doctor away, we all want to hear about it. :). I think the apple is a better possibility, but you have to scrub the spray and the ADA off them, and eat the core, where the nutrition is concentrated.
