I just had 3 bananas today because they would go bad if I don't eat them *frowns*. I actually think it's a bit too much for one day! What do you think? What the most you have had bananas in one single day? Any particular reason why?

Hi! I think you have to be careful about your potassium levels... you should look into that before you make it into a daily habit. If we have bananas that are on the very of going bad, I make them into bread or cupcakes and it saves me from throwing food away.

Does it really hurt you that bad if you have hyperkalemia? I haven't heard anything like that before, that you get sick by eating banana even if you have high potassium level. But it is interesting to know if it is so.

I honestly don't know what hyperkalemia is...but I do know that a family member was eating a banana a day and then was told by his doctor to cut down because his potassium levels were too high.

One or two is the most for me when I have and when I want. It will cause constipation if you will have too much of it and if you won't hydrate yourself as well. Although banana had more minerals and vitamins in it than apple, this another reason why I switched to it, but the constipation thing is the problem.

If you count chocolate covered bananas, then maybe a whole one, but I have a hard time eating a whole banana otherwise. It reminds me of James Michener's book Hawaii in which he describes a woman who had to eat a lot of bananas on the boat while she was nauseated. My favorite way to eat bananas is frozen...with chocolate and peanut butter.

so many bunches of bananas . - so many bunches of bananas in market for sale.
i just can;t eat more bananas at a time. if it is big i will eat one only and if it is small i will eat 2,3 in a day. but daily i won;t eat bananas .i feel that bananas will increase weight,so sometimes only i eat . if i eat,i only eat single banana like in photo.in our country,we have small breed bananas also.i like its taste more,than big bananas. my husband can eat more bananas in day. he can eat 3,4 in a day. but now,as he is overweight,he is not eating now.

Bananas? Blech!! I used to like bananas when i was little, but I think I ate too many of them. Not only was I chronically constipated, but to this day, I can't even stand the site of them, and the smell of them will make me absolutely sick. LOL My husband loves them, but the last time we had any in the house, we got fruit flies.

I think the most I've ever had in one day is 7. They were getting very ripe and I didn't want them to go to waste.

bananas. - bananas with set of 3.
generally i am not intested in eating any fruits.i like only juices only. if i eat i eat 2 bananas only in a day that to if they are small. if big ones,i eat 1 only . Banana Nutrition Facts; A banana contains Vitamin C, potassium and dietary fiber. Bananas do not contain sodium, fat or cholesterol. The Vitamin C, which is found in bananas, helps the body to defend and heal against infections. This vitamin also proves valuable in the synthesis of the connective tissue, absorption of iron and the formation of blood. Not only are bananas rich in vitamin C, they also contain potassium. Potassium is a mineral that helps in the building of muscles and protein synthesis. This is done as potassium stimulates nerve impulses for muscle contraction. A diet rich in potassium is said to reduce the risk of hypertension and stroke. As bananas are free from sodium and very rich in potassium, they can be included in the diet to reduce the risk of high blood pressure. Bananas contain three natural sugars, sucrose, fructose and glucose along with fiber. A banana thus gives an instant and substantial boost of energy. A banana contains Vitamin B6, which helps in the synthesis of antibodies in the immune system apart from red blood formation, protein metabolism and functioning of the central nervous system. No other fruit contain more digestible carbohydrates than bananas. This is advantageous because, the body burns off calories from carbohydrate more easily and quickly than calories from fat or protein. There are 100 calories in a medium banana, and 125 calories in a large banana. They are an excellent food for weight loss as well, and help you feel full and give you energy.

Hello wondericequeen, Do you believe if I say I have never eaten a banana in my life? I don't know how it tastes but the weird thing is that, if you fry the banana, I can eat it!

Hi, wonderricequeen! I could eat about 2 or 3 a day. I have had plenty bananas that would go bad that fast.. I usually will give some to my kids to let them eat them before they go bad. I just threw out some bananas yesterday.

I don't like them. Really don't like. But once I had half a dozen just because I loved them then. Actually they make me heavy and unstable, that's why I avoid them. But they are good to eat. I guess you are frowning because they would go bad and in this process they had got near_to_bad when you ate them?

hi wondericequeen , my dear freind, i love bananas. but now i have stopped eating bananas becasue of my gain in weight after pregnanacy. i have so much of fat all around my waist that i feel really very shy to wear dresses that i use to love some time back. it is depressing at times. banana is very good for health and skin. it is good for a face pack also. i dont eat it now, once in 15 days i eat the small size banan that is sugar free. but not that big huge one. i really love eating bananas. i use to start my day with a banana and a glass of milk. my hubby too use to take the same. but not now.

I usually take in 1 or 2 bananas a day. It's not because I like it so much but simply because there are a lot of bananas in our place. It is also not expensive. Unlike other fruits which are not so accessible and are quite hard to secure. Mangoes are also common but are quite expensive. So most often, I would take in Banana and from time to time eat some mangoes or apple.
