View Full Version : How bad are grapes?

03-29-2008, 08:49 PM
Does anyone know how bad grapes are? I have found a way to help my cravings by eating grapes but I am eating alot of them (my new food I am addicted too). Someone told me they are really high is carbs and to not eat so many, but I figured I would ask you all because you are all so knowledgable and helpful http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley4.gif

If they are that bad, I guess I have to find a new healthy food to use as a substitute!

Hi Dawn,

Grapes are great! Lots of fiber. I would get organic ones. Sometimes I freeze them and they taste really great.

Grapes....bad??? Nahhhh! http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif

Honestly, if they are keeping you from eating junk food, I wouldn't worry about it right now unless you're eating like a dump truck full of them, which I know you're not. LOL!

Grapes are awesome! Most any doctor or nutritionist will tell you, ya don't get fat eating fruits and veggies so eat to your hearts content! Now bread and pasta? That stuff is the debilsmileys/smiley36.gif

One of my favorite snacks is grapes and almonds. The fiber, fat &amp; protein combo really helps fill me up.
Glad you found something that works for your cravings! http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley20.gif

LOL! This made me laugh. :) Grapes bad? naahhh! as Jen put it! lol

Grapes are good for you! Especially red grapes. The only thing that is bad is any pesticides that may be on them.

Happymommy ~ I love almonds and grapes too!! ;)

I know Holly...that is what I thought when she told me...I was like GRAPES, BAD?
I only eat the red ones...I don't like the green ones...don't know why...call me strange. I think the red ones are much sweeter!
