20 Delicious Fruits On Keto Diet You Can Eat & Fruits To Avoid


Keto diet fruits. Are there fruits that
you can eat on the keto diet? coming right up so even though fruits and
vegetables fresh ones especially are nutritious and generally wholesome for
people if you’re on a keto diet you want to learn which ones are high in
carbohydrates and you want to restrict those so today we’re going to talk about
fruits are there any fruits that you can eat and as always people are looking for
a straight yes or no answer and there’s no such thing because we are all so very
different so the goal with keto diet is to stay in ketosis to keep the carbs low
enough that you’re burning fat instead if you add back too many carbs then your
body goes for the carbs and forgets how to burn the fat and you were kicked out
of ketosis so there’s a lot of variables that influence this so before we go into
the fruits themselves let’s just go over that your age your metabolism your your
degree of insulin resistance your genetics your activity level they all
influence how easy it is for you to burn fat and to stay in ketosis for some
people 50 grams of carbs will still keep them in ketosis whereas other people
might have to go as low as 10 or sometimes even just complete fast to to
get into ketosis the other thing that matters a lot is how much of the fruit
are you eating so it’s not just whether you can eat a fruit is how much does it
take before it becomes a significant amount of carbohydrate and finally your
goals how quickly do you want to make this happen is it just like do you have
specific goals or are you just trying to stay in the general range for for health
so let’s dive right into it and talk first about the ones that you really
really want to avoid the fruits there are almost pure sugar are the dried
fruits so raisins dates apricots and figs that
are dried raisins have 75% sugar dates have 68% apricots and figs around 55
some more than half of what you’re eating is pure sugar absolutely not
okay on the ketogenic diet the next group that you want to avoid are fresh
but very sweet fruits things like banana that has 20 grams figs have 16 in the
fresh variety so dried figs have 54 but fresh ones still have 16 grams of sugar
grapes lots of sugar 16 cherries 14 grams of
sugar mango 13 and Kiwi and pineapple have 12
grams of sugar and realize also that these fruits have been engineered to be
sweeter and sweeter and sweeter as our cravings for sweets have increased they
have engineered and manipulated the fruits to carry more and more sugar so
that’s another part of the problem the next group in orange are things that we
have around a lot they’re available in almost every store and we consider them
our basic fruits like apple blueberries apricot orange and grapefruit so these
are still they’re not as sweet but they’re still very sweet and the only
one I might say would be okay for some would be blueberries because they’re
really tiny and you could have just a few if you like to have for for a snack
or something or just before you eat and you want something sweet then having
just a few blueberries is not going to weigh that much whereas if you have a
whole apple or a whole grapefruit or a whole orange that’s going to add up
really really quickly if you are closer to the 50 gram range and still stay in
ketosis then you might be able to have half an apple if it’s a half of a small
apple so you get 50 grams that would give you about 5 to 6 grams of
carbohydrate and that might be alright for other people who
tend to kick out of ketosis earlier than any amount of of these would probably
still be too much number four on the list is lemon juice and now we’re into
the stuff that is probably okay you’re not going to consume a whole lot
you’re not going to consume a big quantity of lemon juice so even though
it has eight grams of sugar per hundred you’re only gonna maybe consume a
teaspoon or two you’re not gonna drink down a half a cup or a cup so the tiny
tiny amount that you get if you add a little lemon juice to some water is
negligible and the top three items on the list are berries berries are
generally the best type of fruit that you can eat because they are low in
sugar and high in fiber they have a low glycemic index and you can have quite a
few before you get up to a significant amount of sugar my personal favorites
are raspberries just because they give you so much flavor they really packs a
punch and the same thing with blackberries strawberries are a little
bit more diluted in flavor depending on on what kind you you get of course but
this again is just a personal preference that I just think there’s so much flavor
that you get a lot out of it for just a little bit you could still have a pretty
good handful and stay under five grams of carbs so again we have to keep all
these variables in mind people want a yes/no answer can I eat this can I not
eat this there is no way of knowing unless we take all of this into
consideration and we use some trial and error so if you know that it hardly
takes anything for you to get out of ketosis then you probably don’t want to
have any of this at all if you kind of in the mid-range somewhere then yeah you
can probably have some berries here and there and if you’re toward the upper end
where you could have maybe 50 grams of carbs and still stay in ketosis then you
can probably have a fair amount of the berries you could
maybe have a few pieces of the stuff in orange here the the blueberries apple
orange you might even have a few cherries or grapes here and there and
still stay in ketosis and of course it all matters how much you have of each
thing and it depends on what your goal is how quickly do you want to reverse
this one thing to keep in mind is that a lot of the underlying problems of what
you’re trying to deal with is insulin resistance and most of that insulin
resistance was caused by sugar and high fructose corn syrup so sugar being 50%
sugar 50% fructose and high fructose corn syrup being 55% fructose those were
the things that created the problem they choked the liver essentially so fruit
the primary carbohydrate in fruit is fructose so if your liver is really
really congested then in addition to the ketosis part you might want to be very
very careful with the fruits so if you’re new to this channel and you enjoy

  1. What is your favorite fruit? Also check out Top 15 Keto Vegetables (Plus 3 Honorary Mentions & Recipes): https://youtu.be/udj27XHJxjw this video has some keto fruits listed on it.

  2. where is avacado

  3. This might sound like a stupid question but when you mention varables, how do we check if we are in ketosis? I had assumed using a generic keto diet was the same for everyone.

  4. Hello! Where would watermelon fit into your chart? Thanks!

  5. What about the carbs in fruits

  6. I enjoyed it. Keep it up!

  7. You basically can eat any fruit but eat in small portions

  8. Hej DR . Tack för den här fantastiskt video . Fullt av informativa.

  9. I have a Barbados cherry fruit tree. Just one or two cherries give you all the vitamin C you need for a day. Only 0.4 carbs per cherry. If you live in a subtropic area something to consider.

  10. Keto = Constipation + headache + irritability & mood swings + wrinkles + weight loss +diabetes reverse

  11. I thought you were Red Foreman from That 70's show😂

  12. Oh gosh i love all kind a fruits..so sad.

  13. Where is the avocado?

  14. Thank you very much I am changing my eating habits because I have diabetes 2

  15. Thank you Dr Ekberg. I live in a tropical island in the east. Berries are very expensive here. What about rambutan, longan, lychee, mangosteen, durian, starfruit, custard apple, passion fruit, dragon fruit and guava?

  16. Can i know how much total grams of fruit we get mentioned grams of carbs

  17. Cherries. They heal your liver and the studies done with sweet cherries, they already had benefits on the sour, but this is the sweet kind, actually regulate blood sugar, big surprise to them I guess. I eat lots of cherries. Could live on them, wish they were year round, they are a very precious 6 week window. Grew up on our orchard and probably ate a bin a year, exaggerating a bit, maybe. Now, did 1 huge bowl kick me out of weight loss. No. Did two? Yes, but didn't gain, just stagnated for 4 days. So while in season, off and on as price is high, one big bowl is wonderful and my liver thanks me. They literally should be put in the berry category. I don't limit berries, seeing a pie with 10 scattered berries on it is not even healthy, let alone sad. I sort of limit in a generous way cherries. Other fruit will wait. Almond muffins stagnate my weight loss too. Seems keto breads are also heavy for me. On a side note, today's cherries are less sweet and beautiful than the gorgeous black good cherries at the end of the season. Sour fruits aren't good for you, they need to be ripe. I think they really don't know how good fruit is for you. And lump it in with twinkies or something.

  18. plums, honey dew melon, cantaloupe, watermelon?

  19. Pineapple

  20. I can use peanut butter for keto diet

  21. The answer starts at 4:50.

  22. how about AVOCADO????

  23. What about mulberries? They sweeter than any other berrie

  24. Hi Doc been on a fasting mimicking diet and feel I very adapative to a KETO diet. But there are severe sugar issues in my family. concerned about the regularity of the keto diet

  25. Video title should be "4 Delicious Fruits On Keto Diet You Can Eat & 16 Fruits To Avoid"

  26. What about watermelon

  27. I've done a lot of digging, but I can't seem to find info and peaches. Are peaches okay in smaller amounts? Like if I eat half instead of the whole thing?

  28. Is it true it’s better to avoid fruit for breakfast?

  29. what is the amount of raspberries for 5 gm ofsugar

  30. Am I allowed to eat watermelon

  31. I ate a banana today i hope i didn't mess myself up I'm on a 800 calorie intake a day

  32. Cotton candy grapes?

  33. Can you please answer me a question ? Can I drink kombucha on a keto diet? Thank for caring.

  34. I’m on a med for sugar as well as cholesterol med and one blood pressure med I’m trying to fast and do a Keto life style . Dr says I’m a very healthy person and wants me to stay that way .So when I fasted for 13 hours my sugar starts to go up after I wake up no food or meds ,then I take my blood pressure and my sugar med and still I goes up a bit but it goes to normal in about an hour . My question is if I stopped taking the meds and fasted is that wise ? Or does it stop my body from healing this disease?

  35. What if you had a fruit 20 minutes before a jog? Wouldn't that make your body burn the carbs you just consumed? Could you have fruit that way?

  36. I do keto but eat any fruit or vegetable my body needs. The key is to ingest "unfriendly" fruits and veggies in smaller doses over longer periods. Haven't had it throw me out of ketosis yet.

  37. Thanks. That was an eyeopener for me. I am 74kg @1.75m trying to get down to 70kg. Unfortunately, I like fruit and especially apples and raisins. If 1g of raisins= 0.75g of carbs, a small box weighing 15g would equal 11.25g of carbs, right? Is 1 small box per day safe or must I stop altogether?

  38. Doctor, how many carbohydrates are allowed per day on the keto diet?

  39. Is it okay to eat sweet plantain everyday for my daily breakfast including 3 boiled eggs and black coffee w/o sugar? I also eat 2 slice of wheat bread for lunch and 2 slice of wheat bread for dinner as substitute for rice. Please guide me. Thank you.

  40. Thank you for this very informative video!! Keto Police think that Keto is so black and white and that it's a one size fits all. I've been criticized for eating blueberries and strawberries. But I keep my portions reasonable and I'm not eating them every day all day. It's so important to find what works for you. Educate and decide for yourself.

  41. So when I ate 1 kg of cherries that was 280g of sugar. Wow. Now I know why it was not good for me.
    Sadly I also don't just eat a few blueberries … fruit usually induces the tendency of gorging on it, no?

  42. Hi Dr sten Ekberg I am watching most of your videos, those are awesome, well explained , easy English accent also much suitable for Indian’s to follow,

  67. What about watermelon

  68. I have 1 banana. Day after working is this a know know then doc 😠

  69. hello and thank you for your video with a lot of extra information….. but…… the translations under the videos are so :(:((:(, mega bad. i am german and the translation nobody will understand, please,
    if you give people a translation to understand your messages on video, look for a translatorperson not a computerprogramm. all the best, love your videos

  70. I can see doing strict keto for disease or a short term cleanse, but to cut out all fruits all the time, or even sweet potato, seems unhealthy. They have nutrients.

  71. Favorite fruit on keto is blackberries..I top with some pyure and creamy goat cheese.

  72. Peaches watermelon cantaloupe

  73. Thank you i am from srilanka

  74. Most on the Keto way of life still looking for sweets are suffering from lingering sugar addiction.

  75. What about water melon is it good fruit for keto diet?

  76. Watermelon 7.2 cantaloupe 7.3 honeydew 8.3 limes 7.7… Where are these in the list? Also blueberries are about 12 net carbs per 100 grams everywhere I can find (nutritiondata website and mynetdiary app and other apps with nutrition info making them higher than MANY fruits. I'd rather eat raspberries any day. My second favorite is watermelon, especially on a hot summer day.

  77. Thank you for your video. I've substituted Yellow Bananas for Green Bananas for lower sugar and resisten starch.

  78. FYI Doc. I subscribed to your channel, hit the bell, and it only allows me occasional as a choice. I never get any of your videos. I go looking for you from the home page and there I find you. It's probably YT messing with me because of the individual people I follow for the real news. However, I thought I'd let you know in case others are experiencing the same thing. You may be "over the target" as we say, and that's why they suppress your videos. Let's face it, they want us sick and you are giving us the real information. I have lost so much weight just following your videos it's unreal. And I'm never hungry. Feel great and just got off all sugar and followed your suggestions. Thank you!

  79. Tha is for this video but what is ketones?

  80. Well trust me some blueberry now is loaded with sugar more than banana n oranges. They keep on add more sugars with fruit

  81. What is the meaning of getting out of ketones?

  82. Staying n keeping out of ketones?

  83. انت بتقرب دكتور برج؟؟

  84. What about watermelons?

  85. I don’t think this is correct. You are not taking into account the glycemic index. If a fruit has a low glycemic index like Kiwi or Apple, you do not raise insulin to the point of leaving ketosis.

  86. Is being on ketogenic diet dangerous if you are on it for years?

  87. Thanks very much for the videos and all this information, Saludos from Bolivia.

  88. How about Guava's. What the carb content

  89. القناة رائعة ولكن الترجمة سيئة معلومات جديدة وطرح منطقي لموضوع الفواكه تحديداً شكرا دكتور

  90. I thought ALL FRUITS and VEGETABLES were/are ALL HEALTHY to eat…this guideline is, killing me here(not literally, just an expression)…I love my fruits and vegetables..what is a girl to do and eat… I am lost here…😟😟

  91. Where does watermelon rate on this list please?

  92. I cant believe that you cannot eat fruits being so good for you… and natural…I crave mandarines…..the sugar in the fruit is not the same as the sugar you find say on potatoes or manufactured foods..do u answer our comments?

  93. How many days I do keto diet?

  94. Hello,
    I have started with Keto diet since a week now.
    Was hoping if you could guide whether it’s okay to eat dry and packed cranberries as it’s not available in fresh fruit form in the city where I stay.( No other fresh berries available too)
    Thanks in advance!

  95. Thanks a lot kin Dr. 🌹❤️🌹

  96. Your information is so easy to understand. Do you have any videos of recipes? Apart from eggs, which are fabulous I admit, what are some breakfast ideas so boredom doesn't set in? I guess I will work it out eventually but for starters? Can you recommend any books?

  97. Wat about kaki ,should i eat it in keto-diet ?Thank you .

  98. You did not talk about water melon

  99. Would like to know if lime and pear are high in sugar and whether it needs to be avoided
