Are raisins fattening?
Raisins are not considered to be fattening, but could cause you to gain weight if you eat a huge amount of raisins. Because raisins contain iron, it is best to eat them in moderation.

Water isn't fattening since it doesn't have any calories, fat, or carbs. But, it is a good way to lose weight if you drink lots of water and it's good for keeping healthy skin…. If anything water is very good for you.
Carbohydrates are the body's main source of energy. They are broken down to glucose, or sugar and provide energy for the body. If the glucose is not used, it is stored as fat.… Carbohydrates are not bad for you, in fact, they are essential. The key thing is to remain active so that you use up the glucose that your body makes from carbs. Another key thing is to eat complex carbs, such as whole grains , instead of sugary things and white breads. Complex carbs take longer to break down into sugar and they also contain fiber, so sugar gets released into your bloodstream little by little. This way the energy lasts you longer. With simple carbs, sugar gets released into your bloodstream all at once and causes a "high" and then a "crash". Then what happens? You need more energy and need to eat again. So, eat whole grains and fruits and get plenty of exercise, and carbs will not be fattening!
There's a common misconception that fruit is fattening. Let me clear it up for you here. Fruit, in itself does not "fatten you up". Eating too much fruit, resulting… in overstepping your caloric allowance for the day IS fattening. "Fattening" is simply eating too many calories, regardless of where they come from. Where did this perception of fruit being fattening come from? Well, fruit contains sugar (fructose). Eating a lot of sugar can keep your insulin raised, resulting in your body shutting off it's fat burning mechanisms. If you add dietary fat to the raised- insulin environment, not only is the burning of body fat stopped, but the calories you're taking in get stored as body fat! The lesson here is to avoid eating a bunch of high- sugar fruits at once, especially before a fatty meal. High sugar fruits would be: Dried Fruits (stay away at all costs) Bananas Figs Pears Cherries Grapes Mangoes Pineapple Low sugar (high payoff) fruits would be: Lemons Limes Berries Tangerines Watermelon Raspberries Melons Apricots Plums Kiwis Tomatoes (Yes, tomatoes are a fruit as they contain seeds. They are high in Lycopene, a very powerful antioxidant, but must be cooked to get the benefit) Some of my Favorites: Apples- Contain pectin, which is a fiber that helps manage blood fats and has a healthy effect of cholesterol profiles. It's also high in the antioxidant, vitamin C. Pectin also helps stabilize blood sugar levels, and gives you a "full feeling". Blueberries- Are relatively low in calories, and are chock full of antioxidants and phytonutrients, which help reduce inflammation and a speed recovery. Not to mention the powerful protective effects on the brain! Grapefruit- Improves insulin levels, chock full of vitamin C, and also contains a chemical that satiates you- allowing you to make better food choices on your diet.
Shrimp is a food that is relatively low in fat. Many people eat shrimp for the protein it providers and as a healthier alternative to red meat.

Sago is free from fat, but it contains 97 calories in it.
A sweet grape dried either in the sun or by artificial means.
By itself, bread in not decidedly fattening. Wholemeal breads have a little less kilojoules (0.239 nutritous caliries), than most brown or white type of bread. Most fat …comes from butter, jam, jelly, or what you put on it.
I think Almonds are good for health, but eat properly. The fat is mostly monounsaturated fat, a heart-healthy fat that increases HDL, or good, cholesterol. Almonds also …contain fiber, a significant amount for just a 1-ounce portion. Fiber provides bulk to food without adding calories, which is perfect for those trying to lose weight. However, like anything else, don't eat too much as too much of anything is fattening.
Not really, calories are not a good or bad thing, they are just how much energy is stored in a foodstuff.
