1 – Are bananas fattening?
Bananas are relatively low in calories with an average banana containing about 100 calories.
They can also curb cravings between meals by helping to control blood sugar levels. Bananas contain pectin and starch, which both help to control blood sugar levels and reduce appetite after eating. Pectin is a soluble fiber which promotes satiety (the feeling of fullness), and helps to slow down digestion. Fiber rich vegetable and fruit consumption has been associated with people having a lower body weight.
