I am on the balance phase and I want to reintroduce bananas as part of my pre workout meal. Do I count the banana a "sugar?" HELP!

    I would personally count a banana as a sugar. One banana has on average 17g of sugar.

    I thought we only counted added sugar.

      The balance phase has different rules then the ignite phase.

    The problem I have is that balance does not address it.

    I would personally count it as one no matter what you consider it.

    I too wanted to reintroduce bananas to my diet after the ignite phase, but I was concerned about the sugar content. My solution? I cut my bananas in half and freeze them. Then when I make my morning smoothie, I add just one half a banana to the mix. I still get the flavor and the great creamy texture, but cut the sugar by half.
