Can I Do Keto And Still Eat Fruits?

I know fruits have carbs but the keto diet has really grown on me and helped me shed body fat. But I really can't live without fruits and vegetables. Do I have to let go of fruits completely from the keto diet? Or can I still have them even if it makes it a low-carb diet? Small portions of high fiber, low GI fruit like berries might be ok... But most fruit, due to the concentration of fructose, will knock you right out of ketosis. Pineapple, grapes, mango, bananas...all examples of fruits that are higher in natural sugars. depends...is a little fruit before a depletion workout enough for you? Because we can all still have that on CKD. However, if you're going to incorporate fruit/carby veggies into 'keto' you will probably not stay in ketosis, and are therefore not really doing keto. There's no reason you cant do a really low carb diet though. Still keeping fats high, but keeping to less than 100g carbs a day? Something to think about. I'm still debating whether I want to do something like that, or switching back to a traditional macro plan depends...is a little fruit before a depletion workout enough for you?

    Ketosis can cause damage to kidneys and liver

    So I'm about to fire up a keto regiment (again, I always fall off the wagon after about 2 months). Just searching around as it seems the other two times I started it I tend to have diarrhea a lot. Anyway, came across this. Any truth to this?

    When protein is deflected in this manner, it releases nitrogen into the blood stream, placing a burden on the kidneys as they try to excrete excessive urinary water due to sodium loss. When fat is likewise deflected, the breakup releases fatty acids, or ketones, into the bloodstream, further burdening the kidneys. If ketosis continues for long periods of time, serious damage to the liver and kidneys can occur, which is why most low-carbohydrate, or ketogenic diets recommend only short-term use, typically 14 days.

    I don't know where to start.
    Okay, I'll start with the assumption that keto is high protein. No, it's not, it's moderate protein compared with standard BB diets. The dangers of protein to the kidneys would apply far more to a 40/40/20 diet than to a keto one. If they applied. But they don't. People with damaged kidneys can not tolerate high levels of protein. So some "experts" have extrapolated this to mean that high levels of protein can damage healthy kidneys. Except there has not been one single case of this ever, in the history of recorded medicine.
    Most keto diets do not recommend 14 days or less, that's the classic way to do it wrong. Most low carb diets recommend making it a lifestyle.
    And again, where is the evidence that ketones do any damage to liver or kidneys or any other organ? Not a single case. The closest to damage from a low carb diet comes from the odd nutcase who tries to combine keto with no liquid, which does put stress on the kidney (just like any other diet which does not include liquid) but because keto is slightly diuretic, you'll see the effects a little quicker.

    There are people who try that? I don't see how. Keto makes me thirsty and will often drink constantly as long as my glass of water is full.
