    I tend to stay away from bananas while cutting and just have them as a treat every now and then.

    If your doing everything right a bannana is healthy and will defenitely not throw you off track. Sure there are more optimal foods but do not fret over bannanas. If u lov em i say eat em.

    depends on what you exactly mean by 'cutting'.

    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?

    IMO, grapes, bananas, melons are the worst while cutting. Better choices of fruit are apples, pears, peaches, berries, citrus.

    ^^

    i think i may just never eat a banana again since there is so much back
    and forth on it. I really don't like them that much anyway. i'll just take some
    potassium pills or something.
