The keto diet allows only some fruits in its daily use, but there are always exceptions, as well as not so bad alternatives that we will know a little more.
Fruits are important foods in our lives since they provide us with essential vitamins and minerals among other things, they also do not delight with their taste and aroma, although in a ketogenic diet plan not all of them are recommended and it would seem possible that there are few fruits but there are more of which we think.
Consuming fruits on the keto diet is not highly recommended, as fruits are high in fiber but also high in glucose and carbohydrates. On the other hand, there are also avocados and olives that are compatible with the keto diet. Avocado and olive oil are famous ingredients in keto recipes. Remember that avocado has approximately 12g of fat and only 2.6g of carbohydrates.
There are also other fruits that can be considered good in the keto diet which are: berries such as blackberries, blueberries, strawberries and raspberries.
But there are fruits that we should avoid on the keto diet and these are:
Pineapples, peaches, mangoes, dates, bananas, grapes, apples, raisins, and pears.
Among other fruits we must emphasize that watermelon and lemon are low in calories compared to other fruits. Tomatoes are also low in fat but also low in carbohydrates which makes them good for the keto diet.
Here are some other low carb fruits:
Kiwis: a 70g serving contains 8g of carbohydrates.
Blueberries: 75g of blueberries contain 9g of carbohydrates.
Cherries: 75g of cherries contain 8g of carbohydrates.
Raspberries: 60g of raspberries contain 3g of carbohydrates.
Olives: 10 olives have 3g of fat and 1.5g of net carbohydrates.
Coconut: half a cup of grated coconut contains 13g of fat and 2.5g of net carbohydrates.
Blackberries: One cup has 6g of net carbs.
As we see it is possible to consume fruits when following the keto diet, it should always be taken into account how we will use them since during the day we must not exceed the allowed amount of carbohydrates that is recommended in 50 grams for a person who is on the diet keto, but they can be combined with extra ingredients in the diet so that the amount we consume is little.
