i only eat fruit and vegetables can i get fat?

Weight gain is a result of consuming more calories than what is expended through activity each day. Most fruits and vegetables are high in fiber and water, which makes them filling and lower in calories. Usually, one will get full before too many calories from fruits and vegetables can be consumed. So, it is unlikely that consuming fruits and vegetables will lead to weight gain. While fruit and vegetable consumption is encouraged, it should be part of a well-balanced diet.
