Pomegranates are especially good for you they are loaded with Vitamin C and Potassium, and pomegranates are said to help are to control weight....and reduce LDL Cholesterol.
They have lots of nutrients. I read that they are good for the heart as well somewhere.

Since only seeds count .....Around 100 calories in one.

Enjoy them! I do!

I find it intriguing that you would ask if they are good for you and then moments later accuse them of being fattening. As Dragonchilde said, eating too much of ANY food, be it fruits, vegetables or cake, will cause weight gain. As long as you are eating within moderation, you'll be fine. And since pomegranates are fruits, they are indeed loaded with good vitamins and minerals.

No food is "fattening." What makes fat is eating too much of something. No individual food, if eaten in moderation as a part of a healthy, balanced diet, will "fatten" you.

Fattening? That makes no sense...

Enter it in your food tracker and look at the nutritional details.
