I love both bananas and plantains. Bananas are way more sweet compared to plantains. I will fry up some plantains in coconut oil and eat them like chips with some guacamole as a dip (this is a Carribean favorite). They are really yummy after a tough workout. I pretty much eat fruits at will and I never consciously limit them.
Like Choco mentioned. On rest days I eat a little more fat and less carbs and on workout days I add more carbs. But I normally never go below 100g of carbs even on rest days. I personally never had a problem with weight pre or during my shift in diets from SAD to whole foods. But my dad on the other hand has wrecked his metabolism and is probably hypo going sub 50g of carbs for many years (He was an Atkins guy for many years). He can't seem to lose weight no matter what he does.

People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.
