is it possible to have too much fruit in your diet?

I am a sucker for sweet and I have found that I eat a ton of fruit. I was told, fruit is good because of the amount of fiber and in general, its good for you. However, It makes my sugar level on anytime health go through the roof. So my question is, should I watch it on the fruit or should I continue doing what I am doing. Thus far today, I have had a cup of watermelon, strawberries, and an apple. It shot my sugar levels to 85g and put it in red even though I know I didn't have a snickers or a slice of cake or anything....I would like to know this now so that I can either cut back or eliminate it from my diet so that I can achieve my monthly weightloss goal.

Ken’s right; you can eat too much of anything. At the end of the day, it’s all about calories in & calories out along with improving the types of food you consume.

Keep in mind that the diet tracker does not distinguish the difference between the sugars you consume in fruit or the sugars you consume in junk food –it just doesn’t.

If your goal is to lose weight, creating a caloric deficit & filling those calories with complex carbs, clean proteins, healthy fats & recommended fruits, vegetables & low fat dairies, is an ideal start. Don’t forget about the criticalness of being active in the gym, preferably at Anytime Fitness, & outside of the gym as well.

I'm totally not an expert or anything, but I would think it would be a problem, due to fruits high natural sugar content. I would eat a good dose of fruit, but balance it with veggies. I have the same problem, and I have finally limited myself to 2 or 3 pieces of fruit, and them try to use a lot more vegetables in my diet.

It's possible to have too much anything in your diet. While bananas or apples may be great for you, you will still gain weight if you eat too much of them. Everything works in moderation.

Fruit sugars and processed sugars are not metabolized the same way. Your body can more easily break down natural sugars and turn them into energy. Sugar=carbs=energy. Refined sugar is harder for your body to process and uses it as a last resort for energy. So, if you aren't working out and/or not using up all the calories you took in for the day, that refined sugar is going to sit there (and stay on your hips and thighs). Of course everything in moderation. I just use the sugar part of the diet tracker as a guide.
