I won't eat the seeds of the grapes. But I read from a book about why French girls look nice. It's because they also eat the seeds from the grapes. Therefore, they will have a nice figure. I wonder whether it's true. Do you eat the seeds?

Hmmm. That is something new to me. I have never heard that the seeds of grapes can make your body slender or make you look great just by eating it. I love grapes and that is one of my favorite fruits, but I prefer to eat the seedless type. I also wonder if what you said above is true.

Hi youless. I have this anti aging, detoxifying herbal supplement, well actually it is my husband's he needs to take them because he has a lot of health issues, anyway, I take some, some of the times and guess what? I just took a long look at its labels this morning and read that one if its main ingredients is Grape Seed Extract(Proanthocyanidins)!-- So, now I know! It is true, eating grape seeds is very healthy.

Hello youless. I don't like to eat the grape seeds as it is hard for me to swallow them down into the throat. But my Filipino friend as well as colleague told me that it is a good idea to eat the seeds as it is helpful and good to our health. I tried, but still found it hard. So I give up eating the grape seeds again though it could be good to our body. Thanks for your discussion, dear friend.

I also won't eat the grapes seeds. And since I am lazy to remove the seeds, I seldom eat grapes anyway:)

Occasionally I‘ll take some while eating grapes but the seed doesn’t taste nice. Once I went for a eyesight checking the optician told me that seeds of the grapes are good for our eyes. So it’s a waste to eat grapes and throwing away the seeds. He showed me a bottle of tablets which was processed from grape seeds. A bottle of 100 tablets costs about $34US.Though it’s good for the health of our eyes by taking it regularly but for me it’s quite expensive. So it’s wise not to throw away the seeds when taking grapes lol.

That's a good news! As I am near-sighted and I hope this will help me to better my eyesight.

You can go to the optical shops or pharmacies to enquire whether any of these tablets is available.

I don't eat the seeds of grapes. unlike with guava and cucumber which I eat the seeds. grape seeds are so few and can easily be removed unlike with guava and cucumber with lots and lots of seeds. ^__^;; I don't think eating seed grapes is the reason why french girls have nice figures. maybe it helps but not the main reason. and I think Latinas have nicer figures than them. ^__^ and I can't think of myself eating seed grapes even if it means nicer figure. I might choke on them. LOL

I prefer to eat the seedless grapes..and whenever i get the grapes with seeds..i feel bored to spit the seeds often, as we eat the grapes, so i would make a fresh juice of it, and filter the seeds..and have a nice drink.. problem solved.. But i wonder that eating seeds of grapes will give a nice look.. My neighbour,have a goat in his house,and it used to eat what ever things that we throw away.. and not avoiding the seeds from the fruits, like grapes.. LOL.. still from the very first day.. it is having a weird look.. and its beauty has not increased..lol:)

That's good to have a goat at your neighbour's home as they will have milk to drink everyday. And if they are so nice, they should offer you the milk because you also feed their goat:)

hey, Sometimes I do eat the seeds off the grapes without realising it until it crunches in my mouth. As for french girls looking nice from eating the seeds, I wouldnt have a clue about that one...

No, I do not eat the seeds of grapes either. I always try to buy the seedless grapes, unless the grapes with seeds are really, really, on sale. But, it just seems like such a hassle to get the seeds out and it makes such a mess. I have never heard of anyone eating the seeds of grapes.

No, I don't think that's why so many French women have nice figures. You're not supposed to eat the seeds, but some people do. My boyfriend does. I've tried it, but I don't like it and I prefer to eat seedless grapes - I still have a nice figure :) Btw, not all French women have nice figures - but perhaps they don't eat grapes ;) From which year was your book?

I also don't like to eat the seeds from grapes. We always buy seedless grapes so we don't have to worry about them. I guess if they're really good for you though, then maybe I should try eating them sometime! lol

Is this true? eat the seeds make the shape? Maybe it is caused by the oil inside. I do not like the seeds of grape. Maybe I can have a try.

Hello.youless,honestly i will prefer to eat the seedless grapes so that i do not need to spew the seeds out when i am eating them. If i have really bought the grapes with seeds,definitely i will not eat the seeds because the tastes are bitter, i do not want that taste to affect my appetite of eating the sweet grapes.
