    Would three be the max?

    What's a side-effect of eating, say, four in one day?

    I don't think I've ever eaten more than two in one day.

    Thank you,

    I think my former racquetball instructor (a modestly ranked professional) would eat approximately three bananas and two bagels during a match.

    A guy at the store said he ate four or 5 in a day.

    Make sure you wash them off before eating. I heard they spray chemicals to kill spiders, etc before they ship them. I wouldn't eat more than 2 a day unless you are seriously training or running.

    James Italy,

    They sell fruit and vegetable wash sprays. I used to fill my kitchen sink with water before preparing vegetables for steaming. A lot of dirt would come off the fresh lettuce and kale.

    Well, you peel a banana. That's not enough. Why wash the outside peel of a banana?

    If you're saying wash the banana after you peel it, I, too, question how you do that.

    When you peel an unwashed banana, chances are you transfer the chemicals from the peel to the fruit. That's why you wash a banana.

    And as long as you don't have any disease that goes along with hyperkalemia or a tendency to develop one, you can eat as many bananas as you want to.

    I eat a lot of bananas and lost a lot of weight doing so (52 lbs). Apples and bananas curve your appetite for hours and they don't have many calories in them. I make sure when I peel a banana, I don't touch the banana part I am going to eat. Bananas are naturally packaged. I didn't think they need washing. I wash other fruits though like apples, strawberries, or peaches.

    This impressive vegan bodybuilder in his early 20s eats 30 bananas a day:



    Some of his vids show boxes and boxes of produce lining his foyer.

    The really neat thing about him is that even though he looks and talks like Woody Harrelson half of his vids are in GERMAN.

    No more than you can comfortably wear home from the supermarket.

    No you just wash all bananas maybe when you bring them home. Organic bananas still are allowed to have some pesticides so wash those too.

    Thanks. Maybe he's following a gorilla diet or something.

    I heard potassium is instrumental in pulling fat out of the cells.

    You know, I have been told to stay away from Bananas because they raise blood sugar and can cause inflammation. Instead, one should eat kiwi or avocado. They have way more potassium than a banana.

    It works. I lost 53 lbs on a apple and banana diet. Well it is not all I ate but were staples for curving my appetite. Apples and bananas can fill you for hours, especially when you are eating a lot of salad and celery with hummus and cheese.

    I would think that if you get to the point where you are on the toilet shitting bananas while you are eating bananas that it's time to give it a rest.

    Inflammation to what? What organs or tissues do bananas inflame?

    I don't know about kiwi, but I love avocados. I recently bought a slicing scoop that works very well with the smaller Haas avocados.

    But I've read conflicting information about how healthy avocados are, mainly the issue of fat. Checking online they don't seem all that bad, and the potassium amount is indeed quite high. Anybody know? I'd like to keep eating them.
