B- Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved. Act 16:31

B is For Banana: You may be advised to not eat a banana because they are “full of sugar”, I say phooey on that. A banana will have approximately 121 calories, mainly in the form of carbohydrate, fat and protein. It also has vitamins, and fiber.

A calorie is NOT a calorie when we are comparing foods because of the macro and micro nutrient differences. Macro-nutrients, that is fat, carbohydrates and protein are all processed differently, that is they require different biochemical management by our bodies. Protein uses the most energy, then carbohydrates and finally fat. Most clean foods naturally have more fiber and other micro-nutrients such, that is vitamins and minerals, than processed foods.

This is why clean eating can be so satisfying, because eating a large banana, will leave you feeling full (has fiber that helps this), and energized because the vitamins and minerals are available for the body’s functions. Micro-nutrients affect our bodies and hormones which in turn affects our appetites!

I would love to help you learn to love clean eating and active living. Check out my website at Fitness After 40 With NurseChrisP
