The most important part of being successful on the ketogenic diet is to maintain ketosis. That's because indulging in high-carb and sugary foods can throw any fat-burning action you've achieved out the window. As such, consuming fruit on the keto diet can be a bit tricky, as fruit tends to be higher in sugar, which can indeed impede ketosis. The strategy to adopt is choosing fruits that are high in fiber and are low-glycemic. This simply means that these fruit choices have a smaller impact on blood sugar than other fruits, and include choices such as berries, grapefruit, cherries, and apples. Prunes, honeydew melon, and blueberries are other good options, and for savory choices, avocado, pumpkin, and olives can help maintain ketosis.
