Reasons you shouldn’t eat bananas for breakfast
Bananas and breakfast have been a match made in heaven for generations but one prominent nutritionist is now saying we should cut colourful fruit out of our morning routine.
Nutritionist Dr Daryl Gioffre says while bananas do have high levels of potassium, fibre and magnesuimreports, which might cause one to think they would be the best breaky on the go, they’re made up of 25 per cent natural sugar, which means you’ll crash soon after eating.
“They’ll give you a quick boost,” Gioffre told Metro UK, “but you’ll soon be tired and feeling hungry.”
Gioffre says that unless a banana is paired with another “healthy fat” food, they’ll only temporarily fill you up and leave you feeling lethargic later on.
“Without balancing this banana breakfast with a healthy fat, many of banana’s benefits are lost, while spikes in blood sugar and acid are gained,” says Gioffre.
But if you can’t give up your ‘nana habit the expert advises teaming the yellow fruit with peanut butter, porridge, toast or low-sugar yoghurt so you can feel fuller longer.
