Too many grapes = water retention?

Recommended Posts

I am addicted to grapes right now, usually eating appr 5 cups a day. Could this cause water retention?

My concern would be more with all the sugar that grapes naturally contain. I would think that could have more of an effect than the water content. Interested to see what others say. :bcb_huh:

If you're counting the points then I think you're ok. You should hold any more water than normal eating fruits I would think your concerns should be with salt and sodium intake for water retention.

I would say that the grapes would HELP with the water retention. I notice that when I eat grapes I tend to GO more.

 

Also - I agree.. since there is high sugar content in grapes, just watch out for the glucose. And make sure you're counting your points! (1pt/cup)

I agree with Padre. I don't think grapes would cause you to retain water. I myself am going through an addiction with grapes (plus they've been on sale for the past several weeks at my market), and I eat at least 2 cups a day. My first thought in reading your post was what your sodium/salt intake is.
