Today, we’re going to talk about vegetables on keto. Specifically, the tomato on keto versus the carrot on keto. Are these the best vegetables on keto to have? Which one is better to have on the ketogenic diet?

I want to show you a couple things about the total carb, the net carb, the fiber, and the sugar in keto vegetables. With healthy keto we want low carbs and low sugar. But, you are allowed on healthy keto to have between 20 and 50 grams of carbohydrates. With this, I’m recommending counting the net carb and not the total carb.

1 cup of tomatoes:

4.8 grams — Carbs
1.5 grams — Fiber
3.3 grams — Net Carbs
3 grams —Sugar

1 cup of carrots:

11 grams — Carbs
3 grams — Fiber
8 grams — Net carbs 
5 grams — Sugar 

Tomatoes are better than carrots on keto. But, both of these are still within the carbohydrate limit. 

You don’t need to restrict either one of these on keto unless you have a slow metabolism and you need to find an area to bring your carbs down even lower. However, you should always stay away from vegetables that are also a starch, like potatoes.
