Doctor explains why eating a banana for breakfast is a bad idea
By Mirror | September 12th 2019
If you frequently find yourself short of time in the morning, then breakfast is often the first thing to suffer.
So instead of that wholesome bowl of porridge, you're grabbing whatever you can get.
When time is not on your side, a banana seems like a good idea. It's fruit, it's relative stodgy and it's healthy right?
Sadly, that banana breakfast, so filled with potassium and vitamin B6 and free of cholesterol and sodium, ISN'T that good as your first meal of the day after all.
Nutritional expert, Dr. Daryl Gioffre, has imparted some bad news about bananas for breakfast.
"Bananas seem like the perfect option to grab and go in the morning, but with a closer look, you’ll find that bananas eaten alone aren't the best option because they’re 25% sugar and moderately acidic," she said.
If you are going to eat a banana, Dr Gioffre recommends not eating them after a meal and, when snacking on one, being sure to pair it with something else either fatty (healthy fats) or with spices.

She adds: "Because bananas are acidic, you’ll have to neutralise the acid to get the benefits of potassium, fibre, and magnesium without the sugar rush".
