Anything that takes you over your set calorie intake should be avoided.

Who told you to avoid bananas and grapes? Never listen to that person again.

Question going over on your protein macros for the day, would this result in much fat gain if your carbs are below 100g and fat below 90g???

Any excess calls can lead to fat gain

I have to cut carbs to cut fat. Calories rarely matter for me, aslong as I get the carbs down.

Some people are different.

Bananas and grapes are quite high on the glycemic scale - best fruits to eat are berries (although I do like a banana with almond butter on it). Basically anything that is high on the glycemic scale can cause your body to release insulin and store the carbs as fat especially around your middle.

I don't typically recommend fruit on a cutting diet because people tend to go crazy on fruit in the baffling belief that it will cancel out all the other bad foods they've eaten throughout the day. Plus if I'm trying to keep their carbs reasonably low then all that sugar isn't going to help - I'm trying to disable their sweet tooth so even sugar free drinks are out.

Here's my cutting diet it might help:

7:30 - shake with whey, frozen blueberries, peanut butter, oats, olive oil, honey - first meal is a mix of fast and slow carbs, fibre and protein. Use oats only on training days btw

10:30 - chicken breast, handful of almonds and a couple of cheese triangles for the saturated fats and cos they taste amazing.

13:30 - can of tuna with a salad, olive oil and balsamic, dijon mustard, black pepper dressing takes 30 seconds to make.

16:30 - tin of sardines or mackerel and a handful of nuts, maybe cottage cheese and a couple of brown rice cakes if it's a training day you will need the extra carbs.

17:30 - BCAA pre-workout

18:00 - training

19:15 - PWO shake with a banana or some sugary carbs like sweets, jelly babies, jaffa cakes, maltodextrin etc

20:30 - lean meat (steak, chicken breast or fish) cooked in olive oil with a sweet potatoe and green veg within my 2 hour from training carb window.

22:30 - Whey shaken with water and tablespoon of Quark

23:00 - sleep

Macros are about:

2,400-2,600kcals:

250-260g protein

100-110g fats but only about 15-20 are saturated

50-100g carbs depending on if it's a training day or a day off.

Glycemic index is largely irrelevant when you're in a caloric deficit. I regularly eat cookies, ice cream, bananas (omg) and anything else I crave and it doesn't affect my weight loss. If you're that paranoid about eating sugar then have it around your workouts where it will be best utilised.

or if GI is a problem go for honey, I find it really sweet, and yet surprising low on the GI scale

I sometimes grill a banana in its skin and goes soft and caramelly inside. Do you just smear chilled peanut butter on top?
