Cherries are sometimes counted among the forest fruits but are actually not. All forest fruits are low in carbohydrates. Cherries consist mainly of water, fruit sugar and a little bit of fiber. They are very tasty and quite sweet. This is due to the natural fruit sugar in the Cherries.
A dish with 100 grams of cherries quickly contains about 14 grams of net carbohydrates. One cherry can quickly weigh 5 grams and the wick and stalk weigh almost nothing.
So it’s best to eat cherries on the keto diet once as long as you keep an eye on your portion size. And choose the smaller cherries, so you still have enough to fill a bowl and you can keep the carbohydrates limited.
Take for dessert
I recommend to eat cherries as a dessert and especially not as a snack. Anyway, it is not a good idea to eat snacks, here you can read more about it.
Cherries for dessert are an option. You have already eaten a meal with sufficient fats and proteins and it is fats and proteins that cause saturation. This way it is easier to avoid overeating on cherries. It is very easy to eat too much of something sweet and that is a shame because then you get out of ketose.
You can further reduce that chance by drinking a glass of water with a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar before your meal and also before going to bed. Here you can read more about it.
