One of the magazines I read has a new diet every week. I read them all because I figure I can get at least one good idea from each. Or reinforce something I've already learned. The one I read this week is the raisin diet, even though I don't think they call it that.
The idea is to replace 500 calories in your diet with raisins, about one cup, every day. You want me to eat one full cup of raisins EVERY day! I don't think so. I like raisins all right, but a whole cup...every day?
They even touted the benefits of raisins, but the amount you had to eat to get the benefits was staggering! Has anyone tried increasing their raisin intake as a weight loss tool? If so, how did it go? If not, would you?
