If you are talking about the last 6 weeks of a competition preperation, then most will take them out for either a starchy carb alternatives or because they are doing low/no carb. I don't have a problem with this and think it is somewhat justified.
If you are talking about someone who is just trying to lose some weight (or someone who is further out from a comp - say 16-8 weeks) then, all things being equal, banana's are fine and there is no real reason to take them out.
What about other fruits? I've been trying to cut for a while, and fine it's easier for me if I mix in a little fruit (like an apple with my morning shake.) Also, if pressed for time and need food, I'll stop at the local produce stand for some grapes, cashews, asian pears or apples. Too much?
It's humbling to start fresh. It takes a lot of courage. But it can be reinvigorating. You just have to put your ego on a shelf & tell it to be quiet. - J.R. Payette
