Don't fret, eating bananas and nuts won't make you fat. Instead, they will make you healthier by nourishing your cells. Many people fear that they would put on weight if they eat bananas. Well, that may not be true, says lifestyle and health coach Luke Coutinho. In an Instagram post, he outlined the benefits of consuming bananas and nuts like cashews and almonds, with a warning for those who focus only on weight loss and not cellular health. He said they are were doing it wrong and that bananas and nuts helped in protecting the body against diseases.
He captioned the post that had an image of a couple of bananas and few nuts, “No, it won't make me fat. It will nourish me, keep me full for the next 4 hours or more.”
He advised his followers to eat for their cells, their body, and bio-individuality, and said that he was yet “to come across a person who ate bananas and nuts the right way and got fat or sick”.
Coutinho asked people to be themselves and not just ape others they see on social media. “Keep it simple, keep it real. You are you,” he said and asked his followers to respect their uniqueness and “stay away from extremes”.
He concluded his post by asking his followers to choose discipline, consistency, and simplicity over extremes.
