Fruits are generally healthy and beneficial but still contain carbs. In fact, they provide more carbs than most vegetables, but it doesn’t mean that you should altogether avoid them because it still contains as many vitamins and minerals.  Net carb is the amount of carbohydrates that your body can digest or absorb.

In a keto diet, it is essential to cut down the net carb consumption and consume proportionally more fat for your body to achieve a state of ketosis. 

But how to measure net carb?  Take note that the net card is not the same as the TOTAL carbohydrates that you see in food labels.  The total carbohydrate count includes fiber. But since your body cannot digest fiber, we should take this out of the equation. Thus, NET CARB = TOTAL carbsfiber content.

For this label, carbohydrates are measured at 15g and fiber content at 3g.  That means net carbohydrate content is 12g.

So if you are on a carb net watch following your keto diet or non-specific low-carb diet, here’s are the top net-carbs friendly fruits to add to your list:
