Hello! Thank you for posting.

According to information from Healthline:
Bananas are healthy and nutritious. They are also high in fiber, but low in calories compared to other foods. One small banana contains 90 calories, 23 grams of carbohydrates, 1 gram of protein, 2.6 grams of fiber and less than 1 gram of fat.

Most bananas have a low to medium glycemic index, and should not cause big spikes in blood sugar levels compared to other high-carb foods.

Although there are no studies that directly examine the effects of bananas on weight, they do have several properties that should make them a weight loss friendly food. So, if you are trying to lose weight, then there is nothing wrong with eating bananas as a part of a balanced, real food based diet.
