Dates for weight loss

I'm 28 F, 73kg with pcod and hypothyroidism... Morning after half an hr of taking thyroid tablet I eat 5 soaked almond and 2 wet dates as pre breakfast and then after 45 min I have regular breakfast... Many places I read that dates are high in calories and not good for weight loss.. I want to know is it OK to include 2dates with 5 soaked almond in the morning or I should avoid dates

Hi
You can happily have dates, provided your rest of the day food intake is optimal n right in terms of losing weight. Reduce intake of carbs, sweets, any deep fried items, junk food. Have more salads n fruits. Try to include green tea daily. Reduce stress, sleep well, have light dinner. Do exercises that suits your body. N be happy. These daily routine changes will help you a lot.

Hi.... Consider dietary changes. Low-fat, high-carbohydrate diets may increase insulin levels, so you may want to consider a low-carbohydrate diet .. Don't severely restrict carbohydrates; instead, choose complex carbohydrates, which are high in fiber. The more fiber in a food, the more slowly it's digested and the more slowly your blood sugar levels rise.....
