In this short video, we’re going to talk about whether or not it’s alright to eat grapefruit on keto.

Grapefruit is high in vitamin C. It has citric acid, which could help decrease the risk of kidney stones. It also has lycopene, which can be good for problems with the prostate.

However, there is a problem with grapefruit. There are enzymes in the liver that usually metabolize the majority of medications in the body. But, a certain chemical in grapefruit can inhibit this function, causing an elevated concentration and accumulation of the medication. In fact, taking certain medications while consuming just one grapefruit or a 7oz. (a little over 200g) glass of grapefruit juice could potentially lead to an overdose.

Grapefruit is also loaded with sugar. 1 cup (230g) of grapefruit is equal to 25g of carbs and 1g of sugar. Grapefruit is not keto-friendly.
