One of my favorite sandwiches is a Peanut Butter and Banana on a toasted bread. Yes it sounds basic but I love bananas and nut butters! It is why I can’t keep peanut butter in my house. I will eat a jar in minutes, no self control when it comes to peanut butter (and trail mix).
At one point i’m sure we have all heard that bananas are bad for you because of their sugar content, and it sometimes gets compared to a candy bar. But is this true? Does the sugar make bananas bad for you?
We look just at the content of sugar (not the source) just strictly the sugar per grams of weight, yes a banana has a lot of sugar. However all sugars are not created equal. Natural sugar is by far a lot better for you than refined sugar. In my non-accredited opinion on bananas I think they are fine to incorporate into your diet, that have a ton of healthy benefits, they taste good, and I feel fruit is fine to be a part of your diet. I personally eat a lot of it per day, and am still able to lose weight and fat.
