Does banana make you fat? How many calories does it provide?

Is it true that the banana makes you fat? Or can it be consumed in weight loss diets? Also discover how many calories are provided by 100 grams of banana.

If there is a tremendously nutritious fruit, which in addition to being delicious provides many benefits and health properties, there is no doubt that the banana stands out for being one of them. However, it is true that it is also a food about which there are many myths and beliefs that are actually erroneous.

One of the most common has to do with the calories in the banana, and more specifically, if the banana makes you fat or not, and if it is a fruit that can be consumed in weight loss diets.

The most common myth says that the banana not only makes you fat, but is also not suitable in weight loss diets precisely because of its high caloric intake. However, did you know that it was actually an incorrect popular belief? We discover why.

Why is it a myth to think that bananas make you fat?

Many people, who adore and enjoy both the flavor and the texture of banana, tend not to consume it or to reduce its consumption because they think that it is a fattening fruit, and especially they tend to eliminate it from their diet if they also follow a diet slimming. In this way, most of the benefits that this fruit offers us, which are also very many, are underestimated.

However, if you are passionate about bananas and follow a weight loss diet, you will probably be surprised to discover that if you think that this fruit makes you fat, in a certain sense you are wrong.

Why? Mainly because there are different scientific studies that have shown absolutely the opposite: the banana not only does not make you fat, but it can also help you lose weight.

This was confirmed by a study in which it was discovered that we are facing a fruit with great satiating power.

In this sense, a study published some time ago in the specialized journal, discovered that unripe banana is a food extremely rich in water and fiber, and that it also has a low glycemic index, so that it  provides greater satiety, so they tend to consume fewer calories after taking it.

In addition, we must name a scientific study in which the consumption of banana and other fruits in weight loss diets was compared. He confirmed that the banana produces a greater satiety, especially in comparison with other fruits, so that it is ideal in diets reduced in calories.

Therefore, contrary to what is thought, the banana is a food that does not make you fat, and that is also suitable in weight loss diets.

How many calories does the banana provide?

There is a tendency to think that the banana is a food that has a high caloric content, precisely for the same fact that it is thought that it is not a suitable fruit in weight loss diets.

However, did you know that a banana provides fewer calories than an avocado? For example, a banana contains just 105 calories. However, persimmon has a higher caloric content (127 kcal per 100 grams), and avocado specifically contributes 322 calories.
