As far as I know, bananas aren't fattening. They're good for you. They have a lot of potassium in them. Keep eating them & don't worry about it. LOL It's not like they're junk food. They're fruit.

I haven't heard that, I do know however that they can give you a headache, so migraine sufferers beware. My aunt was once told to eat bananas as her potassium level was low and ate too many which gave her a nasty rash lol.

bananas have a higher caloric value than some other fruits do but have a lot of great other nutrients that some other fruits lack. Besides the extra calories you get in a banana are good calories. They are not empty calories that you get like in a chocolate bar or in chips.

I don't think bananas are fattening. They are extremely healthy and good for you and I eat a lot of them too. They are far better for you than lots of sweet cakes and biscuits.

eating banana is good for skins and bones. they make ur skin glossy and shiny. they make ur bones strong. but u should not exeed one. if u eat 4-5 a day u ll surely put on weight as the sugar content in mangoes and bananas is high

Bananas don't have fat, but I believe that they do have more calories than other fruits. I came to this conclusion after being on a few diets, and in the servings sections, it always recommended a "small" banana, or half a banana as a serving, where a full apple, pear, peach, etc. was allowed.

banana is a good source of energy and i don't think it has something to do in our weight

Bananas have the same calories as any other fruit, so they shouldn't be more fattening. They probably have more sugar than fruits like apples, though. Bananas are a good source of potassium, which is an important electrolyte for things like controlling blood pressure, helping the heart function, etc.
