Having trouble finding serving size for dried strawberries or other berries? I think dried cranberries are just 2 tbsp. Is that the standard? Thanks!..

Your question was: Dried Fruit servings on Nutrisystem?.

I have the same list but with the following: Cherries 12.

Dried Fruit Guidelines: 60 calories & 15 grams of Carbs..

Comment #1

You might want to try calorieking.com to look up calorie values and quantities of the dried fruit you want to use..

As a quick rule of thumb (and this is a rough estimate only), when I teach my diabetic patients the plate format (which is an easy way to do carb counting for newly diagnosed diabetics) I teach them that a fruit serving is approx 1 cup fresh, 1/2 cup canned and 1/4 cup dried (with the exception of raisins which is 2 tbs).

That might help a little until you can find out the exact stats...

A fruit serving is about 60 calories. Check the nutritional information for whatever brand you have bought and figure out the serving size. My dried fruits are about 130 calories for 40 gr. so I weigh out 20 gr. per serving. It's more accurate than trying to get the fruits in a tbsp..

This is exactly what I do. I go to the package itself and calculate from that. When I use craisins, I weigh out 20 gr for 65 cal. It doesnt look like alot, in fact it is probably closer to 1 TBS, but at least I know the calorie count is accurate...

Wo wait a minute..

You guys weigh them?.

I use measuring spoons but now i'm curious about that too..

Is it a level or rounded TBSP of raisins/cran-raisins?.

I'm worried i'm getting too much now.

No wonder i've been stuck for about a month..

So much for shrinking....

Why eat dried fruit? I think if you wat whole fruit with lot of water in it, that will keep you fuller...

Comment #6

Gee I don't know Poly, variety? Sometimes, especially in the hot humid summer, it's easier to pack along with my food for the day (I eat lunch and pm snack outta my car). Some days I'm not all that hungry, and raisins do the trick..

Comment #7

It's quick and easy to eat, it's good on the go, and my boss doesn't want me to eat at my desk, so dried fruit is less conspicuous..
