In brief: Yes

All things in moderation.
Fruit is a vital part of our diet and should be consumed daily at the rate of several servings per day. It is possible to eat so much fruit that we are not hungry for other vital foods, such as vegetables, carbs, and protein. Also, excess sugars will be converted to fat. Finally, too much fruit/sugar can lead to diarrhea and affect absorption of other nutrients.
