GO BANANAS! - Let me tell you a story. It's about a certain coach who always pushed his kids to eat potassium, for health purposes, but mostly because soccer players are prone to cramps, and potassium is the great nemesis of muscle spasms. Of course there was one kid on this coach's team who was always a rebel. He thought that he could avoid cramps just because he was cool. During a tournament, the kid fell to the floor and began writhing in pain. Help! I'm having a cramp! The coach reached into his bag and threw a banana at the suffering child. Moral of the story, consume potassium. It'll save your life. Hate bananas? Other sources of potassium include potatoes, avocado, beans, and fish.
