sugar in a banana

how much sugar is in a banana and how much of a load does it put on your body? Are there particular times that I should eat a banana and times to avoid? for example, should I only eat a banana before a workout or for breakfast. The only reason I eat them is that I love the energy, but am sensitive to glycemic spikes.

I don't know about particular times of the day to eat a banana that are better than others, but I do know that the more ripe a banana is, the more of a sugar spike you will get. Doctors recommend that diabetics only eat bananas that are under or just ripe . . .when they start browning something changes in how we process the sugar.
