Top 11 Low-Carb Fruits

1.Lemons

High in vitamin C, lemons and their lime green counterparts are fairly sour fruits. They don’t contain much sugar (only a gram or two per lemon or lime) and are the perfect addition to a glass of water to help curb your appetite.

2.Raspberries

With only five grams, a bit more than a teaspoon of sugar per cup, and lots of fiber to help fill you up, raspberries are one of several amazing berries to make the list.

3.Strawberries

Strawberries are surprisingly low in sugar considering they taste so sweet and delicious. One cup of raw strawberries has about seven grams of sugar, along with over 100 percent of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C.

4.Blackberries

Blackberries also only have seven grams of sugar per cup. You don’t have to feel guilty snacking on these dark colored berries.

5.Kiwis

These odd fuzzy green-fleshed fruits are technically considered a berry too. Kiwis (or kiwifruits) are rich in vitamin C and low in sugar with just six grams per kiwi. You can find kiwis all year-round at the grocery store.

6.Grapefruit

While grapefruits certainly don’t taste as sweet as a grape, they make for a great breakfast with only nine grams of sugar in half of a medium-sized grapefruit.

7.Avocado

An entire raw avocado only has about one gram of sugar. What avocados do have a lot of are healthy fats, which will help keep you satiated.

8.Watermelon

A whole cup of diced up watermelon has under 10 grams of sugar.

9.Cantaloupe

Cantaloupes owe their orange color to a high vitamin A content. A cup of this delicious melon contains less than 13 grams of sugar.

10.Oranges

A typical naval orange has about 12 grams of sugar per fruit and less than 70 calories.

11.Peaches

Peaches can be incredibly sweet, but at less than 13 grams of sugar in a medium-sized fruit
