    Your take on raisins?


    1 OZ (60 raisins)

    84 CALs 1 from fat
    0 FAT
    22g Carbs
    1g Dietary Fiber
    17g sugar
    1g Protein

    They seem to be one of the only things I can't really let go on my diet. Another problem for me is that is very hard to just eat an ounce. I always want to grab handfuls at a time!

    Are they worth including in a diet aimed towards fat loss, if I can limit my portion sizes? Or would it be best for me to just try to switch to grapes and cut raisins out in general? I know most of you will respond with a '"you can have most anything if your portions are under control, as long as its not filled with corn syrup and processed sugars".. Thats not what I'm looking for.

    I'd like to know if raisins are healthy enough to be including into my diet in the first place.

    Healthy, yes. They're loading with anti-O's and potassium, but there major downfall, as you've already stated, is their small portions. If you can, limit there use to pre/post-WO.
