EVERYONE IN MY HOME IS CRAZY FOR EATING RIPE BANANAS TWICE A DAY AFTER KNOWING THIS!


What if I told you there was a groundbreaking new tool to help you lose weight, reduce bloat, fight cancer and increase your energy—all for just 19 cents a piece. And bonus: Each one comes with a free carrying case, so you can grab it and go!

You’d call us bananas. And we’d say you’re right.

The humble fruit—botanically, actually a berry!—is perhaps the least-heralded supermarket staple, a superfood more associated with kids, monkeys and slapstick comedy than with steel-cut abs. But its powers are proven, and to investigate just how impactful they can be, Eat This, Not That!

YOU’LL FEEL  HAPPIER, FASTER

Bananas don’t just look like smiles; they promote them, because they contain vitamin b9, aka folate, a nutrient that may fight depression by boosting a substrate that has antidepressant properties. 

(In other words, it helps serotonin, the feel-good chemical, enter the brain faster.) Studies have shown an elevated incidence of folate deficiency in 50% of patients with depression, and some doctors recommend increasing folate intake if you’re taking anti-depressants, to boost their effects.

YOU’LL FEEL LESS  STRESS AND ANXIETY

Besides the mood-boosting B9, bananas also have tryptophan, “a precursor for serotonin,” says Bjork, “and serotonin may be the most important brain chemical because is a natural anti-depressant and can treat, anxiety and insomnia, as well as other mood issues such as fatigue, irritability, agitation, anger, and aggression. Bananas also have norepinephrine, which regulates our “‘fight or flight response,’ which helps to regulate stress. 

They’re an optimal, natural, real-food way to promote positive moods and help to prevent depression,” she continues. “Good thing we don’t need a prescription!”

YOU’LL  SLEEP BETTER

This is also because of the “trytptophan,” says Cassie Bjork, RD, LD of Healthy Simple Life. 



“It’s a precursor for melatonin, which promotes relaxation and helps to regulate sleep.” 

Peel one before bed.

YOU’LL LOOK  LESS BLOATED

Belly bloat makes even the most toned six-packer look like they just downed a six-pack of Coors. 

Fight back against the gas and water retention with bananas. One recent study found that women who ate a banana twice daily as a pre-meal snack for 60 days reduced their belly-bloat by 50 percent! Why? 

The fruit increases bloat-fighting bacteria in the stomach, and it’s also a legendarily good source of potassium, which can help diminish retention of fluids.

YOU’LL START  BURNING FAT

Bananas have 12 mg of choline, a fat-blasting B vitamin that acts directly on the genes that cause fat storage in the abdomen. 

(One reason heavy drinkers have bloated bellies is that alcohol depletes choline, causing weight gain around the liver.) You can also find it in lean meats, seafood and collard greens. 

Foods high in choline are an essential part of Zero Belly Diet—one Zero Belly recipe (a breakfast hash with sweet potatoes and fresh farm eggs) became test panelist Morgan Minor’s go-to breakfast, and after just 3 weeks on the program, the female firefighter lost 11 pounds and 4 inches from her waist!

YOUR BLOOD  SUGAR WILL STABILIZE

“Bananas are a great source of nutrition for a lot of reasons!” says Bjork. “I encourage consuming protein and healthy fat with the banana to slow down the absorption of the sugar from the banana into your bloodstream. 

This is the most effective strategy for keeping blood sugar levels stable, which means consistent energy levels and weight loss

YOU’LL BE  MORE REGULAR

If you have kids, you likely already know this trick: 

The high fiber in bananas can help normalize bowel motility. 

With 3 grams of insoluble fiber, they help you push out waste better by making stools easier to pass. 



Bonus—they also help when things are loosey goosey: “Bananas are binding for anyone with diarrhea, and they also contain probiotics that are essentially ‘food’ for the healthy microbes (probiotics) that live in our guts,” says Isabel Smith, MS RD CDN, founder of Isabel Smith Nutrition. 

If you suffed from any sort of bowel trouble, you might have IBS.
