All over the world, this sweet, soft, and creamy fruit is famous for its delightful flavor and remarkable health benefits. Bananas are one among the world’s most widely consumed fruits and are chock-full of essential nutrients that help ward off many physiological and psychological troubles. While most of us may go bananas over bananas, have you ever thought about the possible side effects they could have?
Despite their numerous health benefits, there are also certain side effects associated with eating bananas that you should know about. Here are 14 of them:
Agreed that bananas, in comparison to your favorite box of cookies or crisps, have lesser calories, but, they still have enough calories to make you put on weight. That is if you don’t keep a tab on your portion sizes.
A medium-sized banana contains 105 calories. That, in comparison to a medium-sized orange (62), a bowl of diced watermelon (45), or a cup of grapes (62) is a lot higher. So, if you’re looking for a low-calorie snack to indulge in every few hours, bananas may not be the best choice. Instead, fruits and veggies with high water content like watermelon, strawberries, cantaloupe, peaches, cucumber, lettuce, zucchini, cabbage, etc. make for better snack choices. They have fewer calories and high fiber content to keep you full for long.
