It’s been established that fruit is good for you, but can “too much” be harmful? First of all, when eating whole fruit, it’s rather difficult to eat too much. This is because fruits are very high in water and fiber, which makes them incredibly filling – to the point where you will likely feel full after just one piece.

Because of this, it is very difficult to eat large amounts of fruit every day. In fact, fewer than 1 in 10 Americans meet the minimum daily fruit recommendation.

Even though eating large amounts of fruit each day is very unlikely, a few studies have examined the effects of eating 20 servings each day. In one study, 10 people ate 20 servings of fruit per day for two weeks and experienced no adverse effects. In a slightly larger study, 17 people ate 20 servings of fruit per day for several months with no adverse effects.

In fact, researchers even found possible health benefits. Although these studies are small, they provide a reason to believe that fruit is safe to eat in any amount.

At the end of the day, if you eat fruit until you feel full, it is almost impossible to eat “too much.” Nevertheless, it’s important to note that fruit should ideally be consumed as part of a well-balanced diet that includes a variety of other whole foods.

Brief Summary:

For the average person, fruit is safe in almost any amount. Unless you have an intolerance or are following a very low-carb or ketogenic diet, there really is no reason to limit your intake.
