    Drink plenty of water too. Potassium can give muscle cramps too. If used to loads of bananas to none it can take a while for your body to adjust and take from vegtables instead.

    No bananas for about a year. Eating loads of veg for almost a year. No salt on/in food these past few days. But I know I must drink more water.
