iVillage.com: Foods That Are Healthier Than You Think

Bananas

Bananas have been mistakenly labeled as ‘fattening’ by some dieters because of their higher carbohydrate content. But, even if you’re trying to shed pounds, bananas make a healthy inclusion to your daily diet, says Sass. “In addition to potassium, they provide antioxidants, vitamin C, and fiber, and a recent study found that not only are bananas just as effective as a sports drink at fueling exercise,” she says, but they may actually help speed up weight loss, too: “Banana eaters also experience a greater shift in dopamine, a neurotransmitter that plays a role in elevating mood; some research indicates that low dopamine may be tied to obesity.”
