Hi,

from the point of signal processing not. But you can try to
use a spline interpolation that has not the tendency to
oscillate and resample the data or use the resampled
data for your trigonometric approximation.
I would recommend an Akima spline.
If you don't have a non parametric spline computation
take my http://phong.informatik.uni-leipzig.de/~kuska/NonParametricSplines.zip
package, install it in your Mathematica/Applications/AddOns directory
and have a look into the documentation (DocumentationCenter/Installed 
AddOns).

Regards
   Jens
