My gym has $.25 bananas, only thing I can afford. I had to head to a friends house after a gym and couldn't have a good post workout meal. Is a banana okay?

A banana is great right after a work out.

I have a whey shake and a banana after everyone of my work outs.

Banana is not great. Try something without fructose.

Bannana's are fine as a post workout food. They have a high GI which will allow you to replenish glycogen stores quickly and will help post-workout protein uptake.

personally I would use sucrose before a banana...

except that with fructose, you are supposedly just refilling your liver glycogen, so that doesn't do the muscles much good. I would have more than a banana ideally.

if liver glycogen stores are full any excess will be secreted as serum glucose and "can" be utilized by skeletal muscle to replenish muscle glycogen...

Ripe banana's are not 100% fructose. They contain fructose, sucrose, maltose, glucose, raffinose, melezitose, and rhamnose.

i tried that today, but i didnt have a blender so i just ate a banana while drinking my protien shake, went good together. i got this off tasting whey protien with artifical sweetners, and the banana makes it taste alright.

I have a whey protien shake, with a banana, and one Tablespoon of hersheys chocolate syrup. MMMMM it's great. And for me the syrup doesn't throw it off to much, and makes it taste even better

*** What this smart dude said.:)
It's not the best choice but it will do. Better than almost any other fruit so go bananas.

Ohh I'm on a roll...

Well sucrose = glucose and fructose, and grape juice contains both glucose and fructose. I am sure there are some others, but that is the first thing that came to mind:D
