You couldn’t survive on bananas alone. The brain, the body and the health need a varied diet. A banana is made up of 1.1 grams of protein, while an adult man needs 56 in total.
Another intersting fact : The body needs carbohydrates, fats and proteins, as well as other nutrients to function properly.
Have you ever read reports from women who supposedly eat 50 bananas a day and are in top shape? Well, according to experts, it is not a good idea to have such a one-sided diet, and it, in no way, contributes to a healthy lifestyle. Although the authenticity of such reports is doubtful, it may sound tempting to only eat bananas, for example to reach your dream weight. However, let’s get to the facts:
A grown man needs about 55 grams of protein a day. A banana weighs just 1.1g. Now you might think, then I just eat 55 bananas a day and the problem is solved. – But it’s not that easy. Because bananas are made up of a lot of carbohydrates and as is well known, carbohydrates in excess make you fat. So if you have the goal in mind of achieving your dream body with a banana diet, the opposite will be more likely.
Of course, it’s also a matter of attitude. We all like to eat varied and diversified. Those who only eat bananas will soon be fed up and break off their diet. The body also begins to rebel after a short time. Anyone who eats bananas for so long or tries it over a certain period of time and then understandably stops, will not build a good relationship with a diet in the long term. Because you always think “Diet = always the same, disgusting food” – which is actually not the case. Diet can be fun when done right.
In order to function properly, the body needs carbohydrates, which, as already mentioned, the banana does not lack, but the body also needs fats and proteins and other nutrients in order to function properly. The brain alone consumes 25% of our daily energy – and more. How can you get all of this from just bananas?
In conclusion, it can definitely be said that bananas are insufficient and are not recommended as a diet. Even if you are stranded on a lonely banana island, sooner or later you should look around for an alternative to bananas.
Oh yeah and before I forget. No, bananas cannot replace drinking, after a very, very short time you would suffer from dehydration. So: Please do not imitate, but have a balanced diet AND eat bananas – with great pleasure!
Your body will thank you!
