Not unless you eat too many of them. I'm a banana snob, they have to be slightly green for me to eat them which means I don't eat too many of them at all since they turn yellow very quickly, LOL.

See many overweight monkeys out there? ;-) Seriously, bananas are great. Just cut the big ones in half and count them like you do everything else.

Good grief-another carb diet maligning of food. Eat the banana and be happy. emoticon

I've never heard of this. I know bananas are high in potassium and carbs - which is why runners eat them a lot. Nothing wrong with a banana every day :]

I always have at least 1 banana a day and sometimes 2. I am low on potassium and it helps in blood pressure control. Last week, I loss 4 lbs and over the weekend I loss 2 pounds more. I think it is the whole picture of things, diet and exercise. I am eating between 1500 and 1800 cal (most days have been around 1600) and walking for 40 minutes a day right now. I am in week 2 of my program.

I have half a banana every morning. They're a little higher calorie than some fruits and veggies but will not make you fat unless you're eating over your maintenance calorie range.

My chiropractor likes bananas for their potassium. I think eating a banana a day helps me recover from workouts better. Maybe it's all in my head, but I really notice a difference when I don't have my bananas!

Bananas are on the high side for calories as compared to veggies and other fruits, but so long as portions are in reasonable control, just like anything else, you should be able to enjoy them regularly as part of a healthy diet. No doubt about it, unless you are allergic, bananas are healthy.

Bananas are just good for you, just keep tracking your food or cal.s

This is too funny, because there's a "banana diet" making the fad rounds right now. It says that you should eat 3 bananas a day and they'll make you skinny!

There is no single food that is going to make or break a weight-loss plan.

Bananas are very healthy. They don't make you fat. I eat one every day. I got to my goal weight eating a banana every day. They had no part in my gaining 3/4 of it back.

Bananas are higher in carbs so if you are watching your carbs it may not be the best choice. But as long as it is within your planned calories it will not inhibit your weight loss.

Eating too much makes you fat. Food items themselves do not make you fat.

No one can say that *this* will make you fat. You can eat ANYTHING you want... in moderation. If you eat 500 bananas in a dayw ithout getting off the couch...yes, you will get fat. Bananas are one of the higher calorie fruits, but as long as you know that and plan other dietary items accordingly...you will not get fat.

There are soooo many different opinions on this. I personally love a banana before work or a work out for extra energy. I realize I shouldn't sit around and eat them all day! Or even if they don't contribute to weight gain, could they prevent weight loss? I am such a fruit a holic its sad!
