I've seen it several times: excess fruit will cause you to gain weight. Frankly I can't imagine anyone having a weight problem from eating "too much" fruit. And I don't think it has anything to do with the rising weight issues in society.
That being said, some people have to limit their carbs for health reasons (e.g., diabetes) and therefore limit their fruit.
