In brief: Depends

Fruit are high in sugar, but also rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.
Eating too much of anything generally means not getting enough of something else that the body needs. If you have diabetes, then too much can raise blood sugars. Try replacing a serving or two of fruit with vegetables. Freshly picked, organic vegetables can be as sweet as fruit with even more health benefits.
