Too much fruit can be 'unhealthy'

9th March 2010

The government recommends that people eat five portions of fruit and vegetables a day, but some people may be eating too much fruit.

Dr Carel Le Roux, consultant in metabolic medicine at Imperial College London told the Daily Mail: "Different people over-eat different things. But the people who eat fruit to excess are often weight-conscious. I've seen patients who can't understand their obesity because they eat healthily, then it turns out they are eating way too much fruit or drinking fruit smoothies all day - glugging down 300 calories in a couple of minutes."
