A similar feature makes this category of products prohibited during the drying period. Otherwise, getting rid of the fat layer under the skin and increasing the relief of muscles will not work. Not everyone can withstand such a ban. In order not to break, most bodybuilders prefer to just occasionally have a snack with bananas.

The number of calories in one average banana is about 90 kilocalories, of which 0.5 grams are fats, 1.5 grams are proteins, 20 grams are carbohydrates. The main advantage of this fruit over other sweets is that it contains a lot of plant fiber and vitamins. Bananas do not cause an allergic reaction, so they can be consumed in much larger quantities than other sweets.
