    How much does a banana peel weight? (11800+ reps)

    Trying to figure out the best cals/buck for a few foods and locally can buy bananas at .49/lb.
    Obviously this includes the peel-->0 cals.
    So per lb of bananas (454g) how many grams is actual edible banana?

    I weighed one also lol, the skin weighed 31grams and the total banana was 138g so 22% of the weight is skin.


    Which means for 454grams of banana, 78% of it is edible which is 354.1grams ..



    Hope that helps!

    0.49/lb is cheap as fukk bro.

    My bananas weigh 220 grams with 170 grams banana inside the skin. (so that's ~ 77.2% lol)

    I think best calories/$ are obtained through peanuts/nuts, peanut butter, oils/butters, avocado's, fatty meats.. but that depends on location mostly.

    already get plenty of fat, dont need to OD on omega 6, not a fan of fatty cuts of meat the local store meat is mad expensive
    need more carbs, like banans, if these estimates are correct --> around 600cals/$

    Cheap carbs would be bread and pasta/rice, pancakes and such. You can buy that in bulk..

    There is no possible way to answer this question generically. It will depend on the size of the banana and the thickness of the peel. Not only that but I think it's really overanalyzing the situation.

    Yeah, to go along with psychodiver, it would depend on how big the banana is and how ripe it is. The more ripe the banana, the thinner the peel would be.
