Can I eat dates while I’m bodybuilding? Since they contain a lot of sugar, I’m a bit confused about whether I should eat them or not.

Yes, you can. Dates have a low glycemic index, which means they do not spike your blood sugar the same way other sweets do. They are also a high-energy food, providing long-lasting energy that will help you complete hard workouts and build muscle.
