How many bananas is to much? Is it safe (and good) if I eat 5 a day?

Dear JVB
Bananas are an excellent food being rich in potassium, but if you eat so many that it increases your energy intake to above your requirement, then they could cause weight gain. It is also not a good idea to eat only one type of fruit - the most important thing to remember about a balanced diet is that Variety is essential. Eating 5 different fruits a day would be a better option, esp if one or two are rich in vit C like oranges, guavas, pawpaw, etc.
