just read that a banana count as sugar- how does a naturally grown fruit count as a sugar? is that possible?

    Bananas are very high in natural sugars when compared to some other fruits - certainly not objectively bad for you at all, but I guess not in line with the philosophy of the ignite diet which seems to try to keep sugars extremely low. Just because the diet categorizes them as "sugar" doesn't mean that's all they have to offer though! They're very high in potassium, and also have fiber, other vitamins and minerals, etc. I think the creators of ignite are just trying to encourage you to get those things from lower-sugar sources.

      I don't think it's the folks at Daily Burn saying that. I think it's other community members. Ignite focuses on added sugar and allows fruit.

      I think during the ignite phase you are not supposed to eat bananas due to the high sugar content - but after that 21 days the rules loosen up and bananas are fine in moderation.
