Are Dates Healthy?

I’ve been eating dates kinda regularly, the big fat Medjool ones, anyone know if they’re pretty healthy fruit? I’m starting to think they might be kinda high on the GI scale.

I would tend to agree. When I eat dates I feel wired for a little, then kind of tired. It seemed like the typical response to high GI foods.

ive been eating my dates too…especially the big fat ones but i prefer the slimmer ones with big tits

ps…if you want to know if hes a healthy fruit why dont you ask him for his medical history?

vroom, thanks a bunch, just what I was looking for. Didn’t realize they had that much sugar in em…
