    Boiled Banana And Sweet Potato

    What's make them great as an enegry food is that they have less glycimic index (I'm assuming the type of boiled banana you are referring to is "Saba" ) They don't flood you with instant sugar but instead are time released and trickle down slowly hence not causing a response.

My current sprain has almost no swelling now after a week but still some pain on a certain range of motion. Yours might have some fracture too but a physical therapy and rehab would bring it back...

Heart rate variability is also another wt to measure fitness and...
