Though eating fruits and vegetables is considered healthy, but a study suggested that it is possible to overeat healthy foods. "While fruits are nutritious, too much of even healthy food can lead to weight gain. The key is to remember to control the portion sizes of the foods you consume," Schantz said.

Schantz reported that overeating healthy foods are easy to do, but the same rules apply to healthy food as junk food. Weight fluctuates based on a basic concept - energy in versus energy out. If your total caloric intake is higher than the energy you burn off in a day, you will gain weight. If it is lower, you will lose weight.

"I have had many patients tell me that they don't know why they are not losing weight. Then they report that they eat fruit all day long. They are almost always shocked when I advise them to watch the quantity of food they eat even if it is healthy," Schantz said. Researchers said that one exception applies. Nonstarchy vegetables are difficult to overeat unless they are accompanied by unnecessary calories from sauces, cheeses, and butter.
