Expert Opinions

Over the past twenty years, the Health Department and organisations including the National Health & Medical Council, the National Heart Foundation and the Diabetic Association in Australia have endorsed and promoted a "healthy diet" pyramid, which includes six to eight servings daily of cereals, grains, pasta and bread which, together with vegetables and fruit, make up a carbohydrate intake of 60%. The rest of the dietary intake is composed of Protein 20% and Fats and Oils 20% as poly/monounsaturated oils.

Yet in the last 20 years diabetes has increased by over 300% and obesity by 36%, with additional immeasurable escalation since 1947 of chronic illness conditions and killer diseases

"Traditionally, a low-fat high-carbohydrate diet was used to prevent CHD because it effectively reduces plasma cholesterol concentrations. but this dietary regimen increases plasma TAG concentrations and reduces HDL-cholesterol concentrations. There is substantial epidemiological evidence which demonstrates that high plasma TAG and low plasma HDL concentrations are associated with an increased risk of CHD."

More Opinions

Twenty-nine overweight men and women (body mass >25) participated in this six-week outpatient study. The participants were randomized to either a 1500 calorie 40/30/30 diet [40% CHO] (n=14) or a 1500 calorie Step 1 diet [60% CHO] (n=15).

The 40/30/30 diet consisted of 40% CHO, 30% protein, 30% fat, the Step 1 diet consisted of 60% CHO, 15% protein, and 25% fat.

All subjects participated in Universal Circuit Training TM, one hour, three times per week supervised by an exercise physiologist.

All subjects met two to four times (avg.=3) over six weeks with a registered dietitian for review and analysis of compliance to the study diets.

Both groups lost a significant amount of weight (p<0.05) after 6 weeks of treatment (40% CHO, -2.8kg; 60% CHO, -1.2kg).

However, the 40% CHO group lost more weight and a greater amount of body fat (-2.6kg; p<0.05), while the 60% CHO (-1.0kg) group did not achieve significant fat loss.

There were no significant changes for both groups in serum glucose, HgBA1C, total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, or triglycerides during the study.

Profile of Mood States (POMS) for fatigue and vigor was also analyzed in both study groups with the following results: 44% reduction in fatigue (p<0.05) for the 40% CHO group with a corresponding 15.7% increase in vigor (non-significant; p>0.05). The changes within the 60% CHO group did not achieve significance in either fatigue or vigor.

In conclusion, the 1500 calorie 40/30/30 diet resulted in a significantly greater fat and weight loss compared with the 1500 calorie Step 1 diet over 6 weeks.

This is a very compelling argument against the common nutritional mantra that "a calorie is a calorie." Both diets tested were isocaloric, differing only in the macronutrient composition.

The protein-to-carbohydrate ratio in the ?? Diet was 0.75, whereas in the American Heart Association Diet the protein-to-carbohydrate ratio was 0.25.

The fact that exercise was part of the study also eliminated that factor in analyzing the data on weight loss and reduction of body fat.

The fat loss in the participants following the ?? Diet was 260 percent greater than those following the American Heart Association Step 1 diet.

This difference is even more impressive since participants following the ?? Diet consumed 200 percent more fat than the participants on the Step 1 diet.

Furthermore, the fat loss in the ?? Diet was statistically significant (meaning it was reproducible) whereas the in the Step 1 group it was not. In terms of subjective measurents of fatigue reduction and increased vigor, the ?? Diet was again superior to the Step 1 diet. The lack of effect of the ?? Diet on triglyceride levels was probably due to inadequate levels of Omega-3 fatty acids in the diet. Unfortunately, fasting insulin levels were not analyzed in this study (as with other ?? studies) to correlate insulin reduction with loss of body fat.

Bananas are not good for loosing weight.

If you are trying to loose weight stay clear of bananas, especially ripe ones which have a high free sugar content and high glycemic load. If they are unripe then they have a higher starch content. Bananas do contain some fiber, vitamins, and minerals, there are other fruits that have much more going for them nutritionally and are also lower in sugar.

[/i]


Bananas are great as a post workout snack as they give you the quick hit of sugar that your body needs right after a workout. Have that with a good quality protein shake, and I reckon you'd be doing quite well for yourself :D
