Staying lean and in shape is somehting that is on the top of my list. Especially since "beach season" is coming to the north east. I personally enjoy the challenge of working out and pushing myself to be better and stronger than the day before. However, I find myself having a difficult time eating the right food to reach my goals as I do like to give in to my cravings once in a while.
Which brings me to my question - are bananas bad when trying to lose weight?
Excellent workout snack
I enjoy eating a banana on a daily basis since I am an active person. Bananas will give you the nutrition and carbs needed for a good before or after work out. Pairing this with some peanut butter is also a good choice for a snack.
They are rich in fiber
Bananas also boosts your fiber intake, which can help you lose weight. Fiber will make you feel full which will also help with weight lossand trick your mind to help you not overeat.
Other ways to eat bananas
My favorite way to eat a banana is in my morning smoothie. I like to pair this with:
- Water or milk (depending on your calorie intake)
- Chocolate or Vanilla Whey protein
- A scoop of peanut butter
Not only will this taste delcisious but it will be a great snack to give your body the right carbs and protein needed to get you through your day.
