Getting Started - Day 43

Last weigh-in:  204.9  Today's weight: 204.9  (started at 235 pounds)

While I am currently maintaining weight, my health is incredible.  Great energy, never sick and feeling awesome.  If you're wondering why my weight has slowed down, it's because I am eating a lot of food.  I am enjoying extra servings of healthy food before I tighten things back up here shortly and starting pushing for more weight loss by eating less beans and whole grains and increase more veggies and fruits.  Especially bananas!

Did you know bananas are rich in potassium, vitamin B6, fiber and most of the vital vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids?  Bananas contain good amounts of manganese, magnesium, phosphorous and some vitamin A and vitamin E.
Medical benefits:
The potassium in the banana is helping the heart stay strong and it is good for the muscles. It also regulates the blood pressure and the water balance in the body.  The vitamin B6 in the banana strengthens the immune system and helps build the neurotransmitters of the brain.

Bananas contain "allicin" which helps to fight off infection, keep blood pressure at a healthy level or lower it if there is the need to and it also lowers the cholesterol in the body. Unripe bananas can be used as a cure against constipationRipe bananas as a cure for diarrhea!

My daily goal is to eat 5 to 10 bananas!  The more the better and they are cheap!
