"While fruits are nutritious, too much of even a healthy food can lead to weight gain," Schantz said. "The key is to remember to control the portion sizes of the foods you consume."

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.
