The BRAT diet is typically recommended for individuals with diarrhea or stomach upset.
The BRAT diet consists of low-fiber, gastrointestinal-friendly, and heart-healthy meals such as bananas, rice, applesauce, toast, crackers, and chicken broth.
Bananas are a good source of potassium, which helps regulate fluid balance in the body and has been linked to a reduced risk of heart disease.
BRAT diet foods are bland, easy-to-digest foods that help people to reduce the symptoms of a stomach illness and improve overall heart health.
The BRAT diet's foods are starchy and low in fiber, which might cause loose, runny stools to bind more easily.
BRAT diet foods are low in fat and protein and are unlikely to irritate the stomach or cause gastrointestinal discomfort.[MedicalNewsToday]
The BRAT diet is low in fat, salt, and added sugars, which are all factors that contribute to heart disease.
The BRAT diet is a simple, easy-to-follow diet that encourages healthy eating habits and helps reduce the risk of heart disease.
The BRAT diet is not a long-term diet as it does not provide adequate nutrients and should be followed for only a day or two.
Prolonged use of the BRAT diet might lead to malnutrition and low energy as it contains less amount of calories. [MedicalNewsToday]
