5 Weight Loss Myths Debunked: Don’t Ditch Those Bananas


When you’re trying to lose weight, it’s easy to fall prey to myths that seem like they might offer you the fast track to taking off the pounds.
While many of these myths probably won’t hurt you (at least, not in the short term), they certainly won’t help you reach your weight loss goals any quicker.

Here’s the truth behind some of the biggest weight loss myths out there.

1. Bananas will make you fat

Can you cut belly fat by cutting bananas out of your diet?

Although bananas are a somewhat higher-calorie fruit – about 100 calories in a medium-sized banana – this fruit’s benefits far outweigh its calorie count.

Nutritionists have long sworn by bananas as a healthy snack or post-workout pick-me-up.

They’re full of healthy carbs, fiber (which can help control your hunger), and are rich in vitamins and minerals like B6, manganese, Vitamin C, and potassium.

Simply put: one or two bananas a day will give you a nutritional boost, keep your energy up, help stave off your hunger, and are highly unlikely to add inches to your waistline.
