Can I Eat Fruit On a Keto Diet?

Is there such a thing as eating too much fruit??  There absolutely is, especially if you are trying to eat a Keto Diet.  Keto recently became more popular than Paleo in Google searches.  I think it is great that people say they are “eating Keto”, but in actuality, they’re probably not, but they are trying to eat a lower carb, higher fat diet, and less sugar diet, which is great!

People on a strict Keto Diet are eating in the range of 20 to 30 grams of carbs per day.  Once again, if you’ve never tracked your macros, this is NOT a lot of carbs.  For example, a 1/2 cup of blueberries has 11 grams of carbs!  They add up quickly!  The Primal Blueprint Keto Reset Diet suggests 50 grams per day.  More on this once I am officially certified.

The article goes into greater detail showing you the macro nutrition for a lot of different fruits.  It also recommends some alternatives to have in place of fruit, which also translates into eating more.  For example, in lieu of the 7 grams of carbs in a 1/2 cup of blackberries, you could have 4 cups of spinach or 2 cups of raw broccoli.  Just a suggestion!

Enjoy the article.  This one is a keeper!
