Is it true that corn and bananas cause belly fat?


Quote  |  Reply

I read that belly fat is very easy to burn IF???!! you know what you are doing? The shocking park is  to stay away from bananas and corn . What else prevents my six pack from bustin' through my pony keg? Any other foods? or is this a wives tale?

Lol wut?!

It's trollscience my friend, nothing wrong with either.

Well, if your corn is in the form of a pound bag of corn chips, then I can see there's going to be a problem. Otherwise, not so much ;)

Sure its easy to lose IF thats the only place on your body you have fat. Otherwise sorry you have to eat less calories than you burn n for every deficit of aprox 3,500 calories you will lose 1 lbs from all over your body and I believe you loose fat first from the place you put it last n since most people with belly fat first put it there before the rest of the body that will be where you lose it last. Happening to me !

umm, no 2 foods are the culprit... and if they are it woudln't be those two above potatoe chips an frensh fries. just sayin.

I eat a banana every day, and I've lost 3 inches of my waist in the past three months.  I'm going to say voodoo science on that one.  I do however avoid corn derivatives HFCS, etc.

I eat one about every other day... i lost 2.5" on my stomach in 4.5 weeks. I also don't eat corn though... better nutrients in other vegetable options.

Guys honestly!!!

 Since asking I've read so much more on the topic. Im really sad to have to give bananas the ol' kibosh. I even watched it on Dr. Oz while I was stuck on the eliptical. 

Choice of any food item is the balance of the number of calories it gives against the nutrients it provides. A banana has a reasonable amount of nutrients for the calories. It for example is a source of phosphorous. Don' overeat / over weight bananas or any thing else in your your meal plan n you should be good to go.

Honest !

The short answer is no. The long answer is that bananas, corn, peas etc. Are higher starch ( read carbohydrate) foods. On a low carb diet, one is to avoid excess starch. This simple concept has been perverted into corn, carrots, peas, bananas make you fat. In MY opinion, Dr. Oz will endorse ANYTHING (have you EVER heard him say something isn't good?) Proccessed, unnatural food helps you to get fat, NOT corn and bananas. (My, I sound sactimonuius! Must be time for bed!) Good luck!

True, although bananas (while lovely, yummy things) are pretty high in sugar.

Doesn't mean one should eliminate them if they don't want to, though.

As for corn..well..since it passes right on through, I am skeptical as to whether or not one actually gets niacin from them at all. It doesn't seem to even digest..so corn is one of those mysteries to me.

All I know about it for sure is that they use it to fatten up pigs. That may not have a thing to do with humans, but it's the mental image I get when I think about corn. That and the yellow bits in my dog's poop when they're allowed to eat it. Comes back out whole!

 

bannans with Peanut butter, Yum

The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
