It is not new to us that everything that has positive effect also have negative effects. Despite the so much health benefits of “date” it also have its side effects. This doesn’t mean you start shunning dates now. The side effects of dates occur when you are so in love with them that you start taking them in excess (more than 10 dates a day). So, keep in under control. Give other fruits a chance too. The side effects are as follows,

1. Can Cause Weight Gain
Though dates are high in fiber, they also are relatively high in calories and energy density – and can contribute to unprecedented weight gain. Dates contain 2.8 calories per gram – which simply means they are medium energy density foods and can lead to weight gain.

2. Can Lead To Hyperkalemia
Hyperkalemia is the condition wherelevels of potassium become excessively high in the blood. Dates are a rich source of potassium, and consuming too many of them can lead to this condition. So, if your potassium levels are high, avoid dates. And avoid taking too many of them.The ideal blood potassium levels are anywhere between 3.6 to 5.2 millimoles per liter. A blood potassium level higher than 7 millimoles per liter can get dangerous and requires immediate medical intervention.
