False.  Eating excess calories will make you gain weight and certain medications will as well.

like frozen banana in a blender.

 

no no no.

I could sit here and eat 1,200 calories in bananas, cookies, burgers, fries, etc and I'll still lose weight.

If I ate 4,000 in fruit, veggies, cookies, bananas, etc. I'll gain weight.

 

calories in vs. calories out.

 

less in than out=weight loss

more in than out=weight gain.

I've always found this site really interesting: 30 Bananas a Day!

People can eat a LOT of bananas and stay super healthy.

The only issue with eating too much sweet fruit is that it is low in protein and if not offset by other protein rich foods you could under-consume protein.

Bananas will not only make you gain weight, they are deadly to humans and are ruining the planet.

Is that a banana allergy or a latex allergy?  Cuz bananas have latex (as do other foods).

. Ok im gonna level with u here, seems like if I had an allergy to it, they would hurt me but I don't. As far as the cultivating, yeah, no matter what you do you are kind of ruining land, but what basis (not trying to be a jerk) do u have for the gaining of weight?

I love a banana for breakfast, they are lower cal and num. http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/fruits-and-fruit-juices/1846/2

Of course sometimes I get an allergic reaction. It is just a mild throat itch. I have allergic reactions to most fruits randomly though.

Bananas!!

 

 

 

Will they make you fat? I don't know. Who cares? Bananas are awesome!
 

Please look for organic fair trade bananas, though. :)

Organic bananas eh??? Well I proved my dumb ass friend wrong. I eat 3 to 5 bananas a day and guess what?? I'm down 7 lbs. So, there goes his meathead logic. He can keep doing his steroids and eating an obnoxious amount of chicken and beef to get "ripped as ****"

I'd be more concerned about the fair trade label than the organic label, but I've never met a fair trade banana that wasn't also organic. Bananas come from some of the most impoverished countries. Fair Trade organizations make sure the farmers receive adequate pay for their efforts and give them the resources to farm the bananas without resorting to environmental destruction. 

 

Bleh, is "ripped as ****" even a desirable thing to be? It sounds super gross. LOL To each their own, I guess. :P Have you ever been directed to veganbodybuilding.com? Folks there could probably qualify for the "ripped as ****" title.

 

ETA: Yeah, the Aggrolites are great. Also, I find that Yo Gabba Gabba has an appropriate song for every situation. :D

 :D Surely I can't be the only one who finds the term "being ripped" to sound quite uncomfortable?

 

Please excuse my horrible sense of humor. :P

I don't know, it's pretty common terminology among exercise/workout/gym crowds, as far as I know.  Not sure how you're taking it.
