Eating too much fruit can lead to obesity and diabetes

An American dietitian who explains that eating too much fruit reduces the intake of other foods because excess fruit is prone to obesity and diabetes, after which he fully realizes that it greatly increases the risk of malnutrition.

“Excessive fruit intake is primarily associated with weight gain, diabetes and malnutrition, and muscle loss,” Kate Patton, a nutritionist at the Cleveland Clinic, told Asher Al-Awsat.

He added: “Fruits are rich in natural sugars, so consuming too much fruit is tantamount to eating too much sugar, which can lead to weight gain, which causes many health problems, the most popular of which is diabetes.”
“Eating only fruits is dangerous for people with pancreatic and kidney disease,” Patton warned.

He also explained that excessive consumption of fruits will reduce a person’s intake of other foods because a person feels full after eating them, which greatly increases the risk of malnutrition.

“Many people who eat more fruit than other foods suffer from a deficiency of vitamin B12, vitamin D, calcium, iodine and omega-3 fatty acids, which can lead to anemia, lethargy, fatigue, weakened immunity and muscle loss.”

Emphasizing the need for this system of vegetables, fruits, protein and carbohydrates, the nutritionist stressed that the consumption of fruits is healthy only when they are part of a “balanced diet”.
