Are they dried or fresh?
I see. I'd try another fruit then, perhaps bananas. I say so because I hardly noticed any changes or benefits when I made (dried) dates my staple.
Hey i wouldn't eat unlimited dried dates but the fresh moist super-yummy dates are quite easy to order online.
Hmm good question I was wondering about this too they are so yummy but so high in calories!
There wouldn't be any negative effects, just try to lean towards fresh/soaked dates rather than dried, I've had way too many an occasion where I've pigged out on dried dates and it leaves me with a big, uncomfortable belly.
Personally, I suspect dates make me gain weight. I think this because it happens every winter, usually a bit more than 5 pounds. I suppose it could be other things like less physical activity (I'm still active in the winter), but this didn't happen before I was ordering a big box from Bautista dates every week. They are raw, organic, and semi-fresh and this still happens.
I'd be careful if you are trying to lose weight.
Yea that's what I figured. I've been eating around 15-20 a day. I think that's not too bad. I was eating some today though and they're so goddamn chewy and sweet and delicious and I wanted to eat like 50 lol but I thought that would actually be way too much since they're dried.
