One of the best vegetables to consume on a keto diet are cucumbers. They are low in carbs and contain alot of water, which will help you to keep your body hydrated.
How many carbs are in cucumbers?
There’s approximately 2.2g of carbs for every 100g of cucumbers.
This will account for 12 calories per 100g serving.
This is great considering that you will want to consume up to 300g of a fibrous carb to keep you feeling full. This means that you could consume up to 6.6g of carbs in a single meal. Or if you have 3 meals a day, you can see yourself consuming 19. 8g of carbs in a day, which will keep you under the 20g per day limit which is needed to keep your body in ketosis.
This will add up to 36 calories a day to your daily consumption.
