What fruits can you eat on a Keto diet? Your questions answered...

If you’re on a keto diet (we strongly advise talking to a dietician or nutritionist to determine if Keto is right and a safe choice for your lifestyle before you start) then you’ll know that Keto is all about kicking your body into a start of natural ketosis, where it is forced to burn fat rather than carbs. This is done through a low-carb diet, where carbohydrates make up just 5-10% of your diet, with 75% of your calories coming from fat and around 20% from protein.

Easy, right? Not so fast. Cutting out bread, pasta and pizza isn’t enough carb-cutting for you to reap the benefits of this diet. Once you start to pay attention, you’ll realise carbohydrates are everywhere, naturally occurring in fruits too. But not to worry! You don’t need to cut all fruit out of your keto diet. Below is a list of low-carbohydrate fruits – followed by a few fruits you should be cutting down on.
