Are raisins a healthy snack?

One of the questions that Slender For Life™ hypnosis for weight loss clients frequently ask me is, “Are raisins a healthy snack?”. My response has always been, if you want to have a few raisins in your oatmeal, go for it.

If you are sitting there in front of the TV mindlessly eating handfuls of raisins, don’t do that for lots of reasons. Keep in mind that a serving size of raisins is 1/4 cup which is 130 calories and 29 grams of sugar. If your paying attention to calories and your goal is 1500 calories a day and 130 of them are from raisins that only leaves you 1370 calories for the rest of the day.

I love raisins, especially golden raisins. When I am backpacking through the mountains or on a 100 mile bike ride, I’m apt to have a baggy of raisins on me for a snack. But at home, If I don’t have fresh or frozen fruit, I might have a table spoon of raisins in my oatmeal. And, I have about a tablespoon of raisins on my dinner salad.

One of the many benefits of Slender For Life™ weight loss hypnosis is that it helps you to be mindful of your choices and puts you in control so that you can lose weight and most importantly keep it off.

Someone called me last week who lives in another state to ask about weight loss hypnosis. A friend had told her about Slender For Life™. Weight loss hypnosis had worked so well for her friend that she knew she had to check it out since nothing else has ever worked.

This woman wanted to know all about how online hypnosis sessions worked and, if they worked. I asked if online weight loss hypnotherapy had worked for her friend. The woman said, “Yes, I’ve never seen her looking so good.”

Some what tongue in cheek, she wanted to know if with hypnosis she could continue to eat potato chips and lose weight. I laughed and asked her if it would be OK if there was an open bag of chips on her kitchen counter and that she have a large amount of no desire. She loved that idea but didn’t know if that would be possible for her or not. She and I will talk more at her free weight loss hypnosis consultation which we will hold online.

Are raisins a healthy snack?

Are Raisins a Good Snack Choice?, Michael Greger, October 13, 2016: “Raisins, like all fruits, have a variety of health benefits, but dried fruit is higher in calories per serving than fresh, so might they contribute to weight gain? A study done by the University of Connecticut helped set people’s minds at ease. Men and women were assigned to consume a cup of raisins a day for six weeks and were able to successfully offset the consumption of other foods in their diets such that they experienced no significant change in weight or waist circumference.” Read Are Raisins a Good Snack Choice?
