    Bananas are great, they give fast energy and they are healthy. Apples are good too, but they take longer to eat and make me more hungry lol.

    I used to eat just bananas or a piece of carrot for my breakfast before I go out. I think these two provides the energy that I need when I start my day. Lately my doctor says to limit my banana intake for some reasons.

    I enjoy bananas as well, even though it's an incredibly sugary fruit. My GP was telling me that an average sized banana has the same quantity as 6 teaspoons of sugar. It's definitely not a fruit for diabetics. On the flip side it's ideal for anyone needing a quick energy boost.

    I have a banana every day for breakfast. It might not be the best thing, but it's quick and easy.

    Haha, well, it's practical indeed, but it doesn't seem enough to hold you up to lunch time is it? :)

    There is nothing like a banana to perk you up. They give you energy instantly and if you need that pick me up that's the snack to have.

    Yes! I love banana too and after I take 3-4 then I feel that I can fight with anyone in the world.It's because of that banana helps in maintaining the testosterone level in the boys and helps to boost it.Well! banana is in my daily diet and my first food after I wake up is banana and beans and grams.These all help me to feel energies for all day and I never loose my mood from any work.I think it's better choice than any other junk food we take in our breakfast.

    Strong combination here, never tried it, but I already tried peanut butter and honey. Also, I put banana in my cereals and it's great!

    I like to eat bananas. They offer a good amount of potassium as well as other great nutritional vitamins. Great fruit to eat always!

    Bananas are one of the best energy giving foods. Almost every cyclist should eat bananas. I am kinda addicted to bananas. I eat at least 2-3 bananas before my cycling session. Along with bananas, you can eat low-calorie energy giving foods such as apples, pomegranate, etc.

    I also really love bananas. Anytime I need a snack or some quick energy I just grab a banana. I love them plain or in smoothies or whatever. They are just great and delicious. And you can even take them on the go.

    Yes, there are many health benefits of bananas. It's actually best food for eyesight. Better eyesight helps me to ride bicycle at night.

    Bananas provide nessacary nutrients that may help maintain healthy eyesight, but just like carrots, they do not improve eyesight any. They also are high in fructose, which easily converted to glucose by the body. This is good for an energy boost if you need it, but makes them a bad choice for anybody with any level of insulin resistance.

    I take a banana every time I go road biking. It's convenient because it's cost efficient, not messy, and I is a very good energy booster.
