There’s a very good reason you receive a banana at the finish line of pretty much every race.
Bananas have built themselves quite the reputation as a go-to, pre- and post-workout snack, largely because they are high in the electrolyte potassium. They’re also a great source of easily digestible carbohydrates. Oh, and they’re delicious.
Despite the good reputation bananas carry, you may have heard some internet “experts” trying to slander their name.
Bananas are higher in sugar than some other fruits, these “experts” say. For that reason, they also contain more calories. And for that reason, you should avoid eating bananas to avoid eating too many calories so that you can lose weight.
But, wait, hold up. Is that really true?
Here’s what legit experts have to say.
