Bananas are a great fruit to eat. They come perfectly packaged for you to enjoy one of them. They can be eaten raw, cooked, over your cereal or inside of the bread, and still pack quite the nutritional punch. However, bananas can be a problem for your body. Eating them comes with increased risks to your heart and waistline, not to mention the fact that they can cause severe allergic reactions, and some medication recommends that you don’t eat bananas if you’re taking them. This a list of all the problems that this fruit can cause.
1. Not a Diet Food
As said before, bananas have a great amount of nutritional value, but that comes with a cost. They are higher in calories than a lot of other fruits are, with about 110 calories per serving (126 grams), and having fewer fibers than them, which won’t make feel full for long. They are also mid-level in the glycemic index, which means that it’s not recommended to eat them if you are diabetic. So, if you are on a diet, you may want different snacks or fruits to eat that are less caloric, like apples or grapefruit, which have way more fiber content than bananas and fewer calories as well.
