    Question What so great about BANANAS??

    On my profile I put a vido of Mike Pulcinella on his 6 foods that work...they were oatmeal, eggwhites, chicken, brown rice/sweet potatoes, tuna, and BANANAS. How many bananas and when do you eat them??? I have always heard they go straight to your ass because of its higher GI....I know more unripe bananas are better than the riper ones (GI wise) but anyone with info....Please share!! Trying to cut the fat the quickest way possible so any other tips are welcome Thanks

    not sure but they do taste good. also they have a fair bit of potassium to prevent cramping or sorness.

    Some information about bananas.

    I fit them into my macros... I eat them one pre-workout, one post-workout. I have 2 a day usually. I sometimes hit 3 if I make some sort of dessert for dinner.

    limit bananas when cutting to around your workout and maybe one for breakfast when carbs are most needed, i

    f things go straight to your ass because of high GI then tell me what people do when they shoot themselves up with dextrose after a workout in a shake. You dont see people pissing dextrose out of their ass do you?

    If you are cutting though i would stay away from bananas because they are not filling and they are easy calories to put on, and by the way don't stick with what works for others, find what works for you

    I know some marathon runners eat a whole banana before the run, peel and all. It is just packed with nutrients that will give you energy.

    They taste great in oatmeal. I don't think I could eat plain oatmeal without them.

    he probably likes the taste of banana.
    banana is carbohydrates and like 1 gram of protein, good if you want an energy boost/sweet craving fix. I can't see any reason why they are bad for you or why they would be any better than another fruit, or how they could help you cut or bulk.

    They are still relatively low GI - just higher compared to many other fruits such as apples and oranges.

    They are also cheap and a lot of people really like them.

    There is nothing particularly special about the other foods you listed either. I'd put salmon above tuna and beef ahead of chicken - but I guess if you want low/no fat the protein sources listed are OK.

    x2 brother.. always take a banana and dice it in my oats and put a boatload of cinnamon on top with some splenda.

    Great stuff, im not too fond of fruits post workout mainly due to restoring liver glycogen over what should be concentrated on is muscle glycogen. Just my view

    [QUOTE=LayzieBone085;134585061]x2 brother.. always take a banana and dice it in my oats and put a boatload of cinnamon on top with some splenda.

    I am with you LayzieBone. Everymourning, I cut up a banana with my oats and a scoop of whey. Tastes delicious, and like you said, you need your morning carbs.

    Thumbs up Found this on another thread...Great info!!!

    A professor at CCNY for a physiological psych class told his class about bananas. He said the expression "going bananas" is from the effects of bananas on the brain. Read on:

    Never, put your banana in the refrigerator!!!
    This is interesting.
    After reading this, you'll never look at a banana in the same way again.

    Bananas contain three natural sugars - sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. A banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy.

    Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world's leading athletes.

    But energy isn't the only way a banana can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.

    Depression: According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a banana. This is because bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.

    PMS: Forget the pills - eat a banana. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.

    Anemia : High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.

    Blood Pressure: This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it perfect to beat blood pressure. So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed the banana industry to make official claims for the fruit's ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke.

    Brain Power: 200 students at a Twickenham (Middlesex) school ( England ) were helped through their exams this year by eating bananas at breakfast, break, and lunch in a bid to boost their brain power. Research has shown that the potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert.

    Constipation: High in fiber, including bananas in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.

    Hangovers: One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a banana milkshake, sweetened with honey.. The banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.
    < BR>Heartburn: Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating a banana for soothing relief.

    Morning Sickness: Snacking on bananas between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.

    Mosquito bites: Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the inside of a banana skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation.

    Nerves: Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system.


    Overweight and at work? Studies at the Institute of Psychology in Austria found pressure at work leads to gorging on comfort food like chocolate and chips. Looking at 5,000 hospital patients, researchers found the most obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs. The report concluded that, to avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours to keep levels steady.

    Ulcers: The banana is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chronicler cases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.

    Temperature control: Many other cultures see bananas as a "cooling" fruit that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers. In Thailand , for example, pregnant women eat bananas to ensure their baby is born with a cool temperature.

    Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD): Bananas can help SAD sufferers because they contain the natural mood enhancer tryptophan.

    Smoking &Tobacco Use: Bananas can also help people trying to give up smoking. The B6, B12 they contain, as well as the potassium and magnesium found in them, help the body recover from the effects of nicotine withdrawal.

    Stress: Potassium is a vital mineral, which helps normalize the heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain and regulates your body's water balance. When we are stressed, our metabolic rate rises, thereby reducing our potassium levels. These can be rebalanced with the help of a high-potassium banana snack.

    Strokes: According to research in The New England Journal of Medicine, eating bananas as part of a regular diet can cut the risk of death by strokes by as much as 40%!

    Warts: Those keen on natural alternatives swear that if you want to kill off a wart, take a piece of banana skin and place it on the wart, with the yellow side out. Carefully hold the skin in place with a plaster or surgical tape!

    So, a banana really is a natural remedy for many ills. When you compare it to an apple, it has four times the protein, twice the carbohydrate, three times the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals. It is also rich in potassium and is one of the best value foods around So maybe its time to change that well-known phrase so that we say, "A banana a day keeps the doctor away!"

    If you are cutting though i would stay away from bananas because they are not filling and they are easy calories to put on, and by the way don't stick with what works for others, find what works for you
    Stay away from bananas? Even when cutting? Erm no..

    I eat a pretty hard core low carb diet, and I even like bananas. What's not to like. Plus, I always figure gorillas are pretty big and strong, so they just CAN'T be bad.
