Low-Carb Fruit List.

This day and age, carbohydrates get a bad rap. In reality, carbs are essential for mental and physical performance as the body uses these sugar molecules for fuel. Not consuming enough carbs can result in low energy levels or even, perhaps, even a state of ketosis.

Fruits contain not just carbohydrates – but also a whole slew of great vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber. Because fruits are so nutrient-rich, it’s important to find ways to incorporate them into whatever crab-restrictive diet plan you may choose.

Just because you're on a carb-restrictive diet doesn't mean forgoing fruit. Use this list to incorporate lower-carb fruits into your diet.

  1. I hope that the fruits with the peels don’t actually mean for you to eat them. Peels are notorious absorbers of fungisides, and they should never be eaten or cooked.

  2. christopher says:

    long extensive list of fruit-anything in moderation-one who watches carbs-this is a good list to go by.

  3. Good info I normally take a mixture of low and high carb fruits by blending, I usually take in more low than high Being a type 2 diabetic you really have to watch your sugar intake.

    • @jeffreagan2001 They reverse it only bueacse of the immediate weight loss which is mostly water & then muscle. The body needs quality carbs for energy not the small amount of carb from ketogenics.That^s why after a while,energy is lost,the brain slows down & your body starts feeding on muscle to convert to carb .As your body cannabilizes itself & you lose muscle,metabolism slows bueacse muscle helps burn more calories. Atkins never published in 40 yrs long term effect of this diet(Why???)
