The 7 Worst Keto Vegetables
Before the list, I want to get one thing straight.
In Keto, carbs are carbs. When you are counting your carbs, vegetables are equal to sugar.
However, and it’s a big however, when discussing your health, all carbs are definitely NOT equal.
Without even knowing any science, your own common sense will tell you that broccoli is not equal to refined sugar.
So we are not trying to tell you that the vegetables on this list are worse than refined carbs of any kind.
We are only talking about carb content in the keto diet.
Why is this important? Because with very few exceptions, any vegetable is better than any refined carb.
This discussion is only from the point of view of staying in keto.
With that in mind, here are the “worst” 7 keto vegetables.
