Is it true that you can't have banana's? That there are fattening? I thought they had good fat. I like having them with peanut butter.
You can have anything you want. Bananas do not make you fat, calories do. (although they are high in sugar which only matters if you have a medical reason)0
I eat 2-3 bananas a day and haven't had a problem losing weight0
I average 2 of them a day (minus peanut butter). I love bananas. I've gone from 147 lbs. to 129 and have not given them up.0
Bananas are high in calories and sugar, but have so many good nutritions that it makes up for it! Having one or two a day is perfectly save and a good idea for active lifestyles as they provide good bust of energy. However eating more then that might be troublesome for some people with regards to their digestion (In my case at least :P)0
Can't live without bananas - great kick start to the day.0
Of course you can have bananas.0
ONE! ONE banana! AH HA AH HA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!0
Bananas are great! I literally ate 10 on the way to work today after a swim. I usually average around 15 or so per day! Alot of times they will end up in a smoothie that I make.0
If you don't eat them..............they will eat you!
per The Doctor, "I like bananas. Bananas are good."
This is why there is now a banana grove in the heart of Villengard. This is also why the banana daiquiri got invented too early0
Bananas aren't high in fat, they're high in sugar and carbs. Peanut butter is high in fat. But remember, dietary fat =/= body fat. If you eat below maintenance you'll lose weight. I've been eating ice cream and chocolate every single night and I still lose weight. IIFYM.0
Nothing alone is fattening. If you ate 50 bananas a day, sure they would make you gain fat but a couple won't harm you unless you are over your daily maintance calories.
I regularly eat 2-4 of them a day.
I don't know where these myths keep coming from... bananas aren't even high in fat and dietary fat doesn't make you fat.0
wow thank you all for letting me know.....0

what kind of ice scream do you eat?0
They're fine in moderation, enjoy0
I have a banana nearly every day! Couldn't live without them.0

Bananas don't make you fat. Bananas are a fruit - so they don't really even have fat. But even if they did, fat doesn't make you fat. Sugar doesn't make you fat (you only need to be concerned about sugar if you have a medical issue).
Too many calories makes you fat. Eat at a deficit and you'll be fine.0
They average for a small one about 90 calories...people always complain about the sugar but if you go to www.whfoods.com it will give you all the nutritional data.
Now would you rather have 90 calories of sugar and nutrients in a banana or a Snickers...straight sugar?0
i have one a day seven days a week,0
