    Raisins

    Are raisins okay to eat when ur trying to lose weight? I eat them a lot, especially in the mornings(in my oatmeal) or whenever i'm hungry I'll grab a hand full.

    Just make sure you measure them and count them in your macros..if they fit in, then go for it!!

    1/4 cup is about 100 calories..so they're pretty calorie dense. You can eat more filling foods for less calories. They're high in sugar too, so they might raise your blood sugar and cause it to drop.

    I have them just about every day myself, in my oatmeal, 1/8 of a cup for just a splash of flavor. When I eat more than that my macros get skewed towards too much carbs.

    i agree that if the raisins fit in with what your trying to accomplish, but this goes for ANY food(s), then eat up!
    & yes, they are calorie dense, but are good for someone like me looking to gain... a little goes a long way.

    a quarter cup = 100 cals wow that's alot

    personally I'm not a fan of raisins but a lot of people use them in their breakfast

    I'd stay away from them just for the rise and drop in blood sugar

    I use them sparingly, in my homemade protein bars sometimes, but I only use 1/4 cup for an entire 9 bars, so I am not eating a ton at once.
