Read this article on Yahoo.

Ever grab a snack but then feel hungry again 20 minutes later? Next time, reach for a banana. Itís loaded with Resistant Starch (RS), a healthy carb that fills you up and helps to boost your metabolism. Slightly underripe medium-sized bananas have 12.5 grams of RSómore than most other foods. Ripe bananas give you 4.7 grams of RS, still enough to keep hunger pangs away.

    Glad to hear bananas boost metabolism i need all i can get. I am almost half a century. I started taking vitamin B-12 to boost it. Now i will start to purchase bananas to help and i do like them.
