How much fruit can be eaten?

In a low-carb keto diet (less than 20 grams a day), you might be better off having some berries. You can get all of the nutrients that fruits have without having any sugar in your food. So, it might be better to eat a lot of low-carb vegetables instead.

Even on a moderately low-carb diet (20-50 grams a day), you have to be careful with fruit. You probably shouldn't eat more than one piece a day, but you should still be careful with fruit.

Fruits may be OK for you to eat two or three times per day, but only if they are your main source of carbs (50-100 grams per day).

As you can see, grapes and bananas are the two fruits that have the most carbs of any fruit.

Is the fruit not real?

A lot of people think of fruit as a natural food that humans have always eaten. Because of this, there are often big differences between what fruit looks like now and what it looked like before.

What were fruits and vegetables like before?

Many people in history didn't have a lot of fruit because it was only available for a short time each year, when it was in season. Our ancestors, like primates living in the wild, could only eat a lot of fruit when it was available. A little extra sugar could help them stay alive when things aren't so good.

For some people, their bodies have a hard time dealing with all the sugar from the fruit they eat all year.

Avoid these foods on the keto diet

Avoid fruits that are high in sugar.

Foods high in sugar are banned on all diets, and the keto diet is no exception. Do not eat sugary sodas, candy or sports drinks, cookies or biscuits, pasta or sweetened yoghurt or ice cream, or breakfast cereals that are sweetened

Most fruit has too much sugar for the keto diet, so it's not good for you to eat it. You can eat about 200 grams of mango, grape, or banana to get enough carbohydrates for a whole day.

Salty foods like ketchup and pasta sauce often have sugar in them. If you don't want sugar, be sure to read the labels.

People use natural sweeteners to make their food taste better. These include honey and maple syrup as well as agave and honey. Sugar has many different names. The name doesn't matter. You should try not to do it, no matter what.

Avoid foods that are high in carbs.

Every time you eat a starch, your body breaks it down into sugar. You might not be able to lose weight or be healthy if you eat a lot of "healthy" foods that turn into sugar. There are a lot of starchy foods out there, like bread and tortillas made with flour. There are also pasta and rice, as well as potatoes and other vegetables like French fries and potato chips.

Even whole grains and foods that look like grains, like quinoa, are made of starch.
