Just saw an ad on BF about 5 foods to never eat. Been going around for years it seems. But it struck me as funny that on BikeForums, of all places, you would see talk about not eating bananas, given the potassium content can make them a bit better for a cyclist specifically.
Just goes to show you, may the reader beware about telling ads from product endorsements.
There is always crackpots saying silly stuff like this. I love bananas whether straight out the peel, topped with peanut butter or drowned in booze and brown sugar and set a blaze. Never bother with silly ads because they are generally wrong or a scam of some sort.
I'm a banana fan of epic proportions. At one point I had such high levels of potassium that I was told I risked toxicity, so I stopped eating them so often for awhile and developed such severe hypokalemia that I had an irregular heartbeat. Now I eat about one per day.
