Does eating dates increase weight?

People gain weight when they consume more energy than they burn. Dates are an energy-dense food, so eating high amounts of dates if you are not active could lead to weight gain. However, the high-fiber content in dates helps keep you satiated, making them great for weight loss or maintenance.
