Top 5 Lowest Carb Fruits

Jan 7, 2020 | Meal Planning | 0 comments

There is a lot of confusing information out there about fruit. 

Many fruits are considered “superfoods” and are full of antioxidants, essential nutrients, and dietary fiber.

On the other hand, eating just a big bowl of fruit for breakfast is likely to spike your blood sugar and leave you feeling hungry and lightheaded an hour later.

It can also be hard to fit fruit into your meals if you're following a low carb or Keto diet.

So how do you enjoy fruit and reap its many benefits while limiting carbs and avoiding blood sugar spikes? I'm here to help!

I'm sharing the top 5 lowest carb fruits. I've also developed a whole bonus guide with more details on low and high carb fruits, as well as tips on how to enjoy fruit without spiking your blood sugar. Sign up below to get the guide!

Net carbs refers to the carbohydrates that are actually absorbed by your body and impact your blood sugar. This is calculated simply by subtracting the grams of fiber in a food from the total carbs since fiber passes through your body and doesn't effect blood sugar. (Calculating net carbs gets more complicated when you're dealing with processed foods, but since we're just talking about fruit today, we can keep it simple!)

While grapefruit is currently in-season, berries are not, but you can still enjoy them, just choose frozen! They work great in smoothies or simply defrosted alongside breakfast.

Frozen berries also work well to infuse tea or in my chia jam recipe (just sweeten with Stevia instead of maple if you're following a Keto diet!)
