A lot of people avoid bananas because they think they’re high in calories. So how many calories are there in a banana?
A medium banana has about 100 calories while a small one has about 80. This isn’t much more than most fruits. For example, a medium apple has about 95 calories and a medium pear has about 100 calories.
Like other fruits (except avocados and olives) bananas contain no fat.
So if you’re dieting and avoiding bananas, there’s really no reason to. Just be aware that bananas are higher in sugar than other fruits and that like everything else, they should be enjoyed in moderation.
