I eat 20/day usually but lately I've been eating 40/day because I'm waiting for my bananas to ripen. I think freelee said in a recent vid that she was trying to eat 60/day for a while. So no, you won't overdose on dates
I haven't gotten my hands on dates... they aren't that common here. I don't think you can od on dates though. Try it, its not like alcohol, learn your limit in case it might make you 'sick.'
I've been eating around 10-20 dates a day depending on what else I'm eating during the day, but am fairly new to 811 and never used to eat more than two dates per day, so am wondering if I should take it easy and gradually up my date consumption or if I should eat as many as I crave... Also I know everyone says dates dont make you gain weight but doesn't Dr. Graham says that weight gain is all about calories in VS calories out? so technically if your eating way too many dates and not burning enough of the caloric intake then it will be turned into fat?
I eat at least 40 a day, and more recently 80---but these are in the form of datorade :-)
80 dates a day?? Woaaah thats insane! i couldnt imagine to eat that many, but maybe im just saying it now cause im still a newbie :)
how much do you guys pay for the dates? is $80 for 5kg too much? or $12 for 2Lbs?
i get 11 pounds of organic medjools for 103.50. i can get conventional medjools at 8.99 for 2 lbs but they're crap quality and i'm not supporting organic farmers. i go through at least a pound of dates a day usually, sometimes more if i'm doing hot yoga or am just like, really hungry. eating other fruits too obviously :)
how did you find a whole seller in your area? Im trying to find someone here in toronto canada but am having a hard time..so am just buying right now from the stores, which is getting pricey...
15 pounds organic medjools for 100 dollars from realrawfood.com
they are from BC but will for sure ship to toronto, even if you are paying a bit for shipping it is worth it! :)
i buy my dates straight from the grocery store i work at because the wholesaler i know who sells to the public doesn't sell organic dates.
i was searching online and came upon a 30BAD thread about calgary wholesalers :)
Stephanie, as my 30bad name states, I am all organic myself. Kudos to you my friend!
[answer to original post->] When I'm completely succesfully hcrv I eat about 1 lb which might be around 50 dates. :) I always have it in the form of datorade and divided in 2 meals (but I add bananas to my datorade to make it less sweet etc). Good easy calorie source. And yeah sure they're kind of expensive but without it I wouldn't be able to do this lifestyle for another couple of years so they're worth it for me.
It costs about 6,20 US dollars for the 1 lb/600g box. They're from Iran and aren't labeled as organic. So basically I pay the same price as you. Are yours organic? Where are you, America?
Im in Toronto, Canada...
