Our expert says:
This is not at all a silly question. It is theoretically possible to eat so much fruit that you push up your energy intake and gain weight. On the other hand, some people who eat practically only fruit may develop deficiencies of a variety of nutrients (e.g. iron, zinc, calcium, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, etc). The diet you describe only includes 4 fruits, which together with 1-2 vegetables with supper, will just about achieve the "5-A-Day" of fruit and vegetables that are recommended by nutrition experts throughout the world. You are not having an excessive fruit intake and as you are substituting fruit for the foods you are not fond of, you will also not gain weight with this diet.
