Vegetables to avoid on the keto diet
Non starchy vegetables should be your main source of greens while following the keto diet.
Leafy greens, squashes, peppers, fatty avocados and olives are all good options to add to your meals.
While vegetables are encouraged in most diets, there are a few that should be avoided on the keto diet.
High-carb varieties like potatoes and sweet potatoes should not be consumed as it could disrupt the body’s ketogenic state.
Onions, butternut squash, corn and beetroot should also be left out of your meal plan.
Can you eat fruit on the keto diet?
Most fruits are too high in sugar and carbohydrates to be eaten on the keto diet but berries – especially strawberries are an exception to this.
Blackberries and blueberries are also low-carb options that are loaded with antioxidants, though these should be eaten sparingly on stricter diets
