How To Eat Dates For Weight Loss?

Dates are extremely flexible. You can add them to pretty much anything; from savory meals to desserts.

Here’s a list of ideas on how to eat dates for weight loss:

  • Add them to your smoothies.
  • Sweeten your oatmeal with dates rather than sugar or liquid syrups.
  • Add them to your salads.
  • Make healthy energy bites with dates.
  • Stuff dates with dark chocolate chips.
  • Soak the dates in hot water, and drink the juice.

These are just some ideas. However, do bear in mind, that weight loss can only work if you are in a calorific deficit.

Simply incorporating dates in your diet, without cutting down on the calories consumed for the day, won’t necessarily result in weight loss.

The way dates help with weight loss is by helping you curb cravings, as well as promoting the feeling of fullness.

What Is The Best Time to Eat Dates For Weight Loss?

Breakfast is typically the best time to eat dates for weight loss.


Because dates promote the feeling of fullness, but also, because dates are sweet, they will curb cravings for processed sugary snacks for the rest of the day.

However you choose to eat them, they are best consumed for breakfast. However, if you crave sugary snacks in the afternoon, they can be a great healthier replacement.
