You might wan to omit bananas from your diet due to the high number of carbohydrates or sugars in the banana.Yellow or brown” bananas contains more sugar than green ones which have more fiber. It’s not that banana’s are ‘bad’ for you, it’s just that they’re not good for losing weight as they do contain a lot of simple sugars. Berries are better. If you are strictly monitoring sugar & caloric intake the biggest thing is glycemic spike with a banana. If you can't give them up, eat in moderation

    ps: that's with or without protein. and the glycemic index has been shown to be ok as a general guide but not accurate enough to base your diet (and bet your life) on it.

    Good post, Sunshine.

Ingrid - did you mean to say LOW glycemic food? High glycemic food is the easiest way to cause a spike.

    To avoid glycemic spikes you could eat high glycemic food together with proteine rich food.
