    Do people find bananas affect their weight? I read somewhere that they can which makes me scared to eat them! (lol) If i have a banana i'll only have it first thing in the morning so i have the rest of the day to burn it off.....Am i just being daft?!

    Noooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!

    They are a FREE food, not just FREE but SUPERFREE :)

    Okay, so they are higher in cals than an apple or orange but they are free and if they affected your weight then SW wouldn't let them be free!!!

    Well I say everything in moderation!! You can certainly have too much of any one thing- unless we're talking celery & cucumber!! I can't see the problem with having one a day, whatever time that may be!! If they were to be eaten with such caution, surely they'd take them off the free food list?!!!x

    You'll get there soon enough hun, I've been at this game for 3 years now!! (still a struggle mind you!)

    As for bananagate saga, I have one or two a day and it's the first thing I go for if I miss breakfast or have a long journey to make.

    I know some people limit bananas and grapes as they are not speed foods like other fruit but I really don't think the humble banana will make people gain weight.

    Choc and crisps and booze, yes. Bananas, no!
