Does Overeating Fruits Good For Your Health?


We all know that fruits have a lot nutrients that plays an important role in our body plus, they are convenient to eat.

Fruits have zero cholesterol, low in fat, sodium and some low in calories.

However most fruits are high in sugar compared to other whole foods but is it healthy to over eat fruits?

I came across this article and and this is the first time I read about overating fruits is okay.

The theory is...

"While eating large amounts of added sugar is harmful to most people, the same does not apply to fruit."

A lot of evidence has shown that excessive intake of added sugar is harmful (1, 2, 3). This includes table sugar (sucrose) and high-fructose corn syrup, both of which are about half glucose, half fructose. One reason that excessive added sugar intake is harmful is the negative metabolic effects of fructose when consumed in large amounts. Many people now believe that because added sugars are bad, the same must apply to fruits, which also contain fructose.

However, this is a misconception. Fructose is only harmful in large amounts, and it’s almost impossible to overeat fructose by eating fruit.

Evidence suggests that fructose can cause harm when consumed in excess. However, there is not enough fructose in fruit to cause concern.

What's your opinion about this?
