Is Grapefruit Keto?

Grapefruit is not a keto-friendly fruit. While we won’t tell you to avoid it entirely, you should consume grapefruit very moderately as it has a high carb content. Save it for those rare and special occasions!

High in Carbs

  • 100g of grapefruit contains 10.7g of total carbs and 9.1g net carbs. That’s a lot of carbs for a single fruit. 
  • As the ketogenic diet requires a strict carb reduction, eating grapefruit often will quickly push you over your daily carbohydrate intake.
  • Most keto diets suggest limiting your carb count to no more than 50g per day and as little as 20g per day. 
  • Grapefruit doesn’t ideally match the keto lifestyle, but it doesn’t mean you should never eat it again. This citrus fruit is rich in nutrients and antioxidants. Just keep its consumption to a minimum.

Too Little Fats

  • The concept of the keto diet centers around a high-fat, low-carb, moderate-protein diet. At just 0.1g, there is almost no fat in grapefruit. 
  • As there are next to no fats, grapefruit is not a beneficial keto food.
  • 70% of your calorie intake should come from healthy fats. Opt for fruits with a low-carb, high-fat content. 
  • Avocados are the dream keto fruit as they contain a whopping 15.4g of fats and only 1.8g of net carbs.
