Most fruits people think of as fruits are almost all carb. If it's not fat or protein it's carbohydrate, which is why the whole concept of low carb diets is off. Vegetables are carbohydrates, but it wouldn't be healthy do without them. What low carb really means, or should mean, is avoiding simple carbs, such as sugar and white flower. Most fruits as we think of them are high in sugar, though it's not as quick to metabolize into simple sugar as processed cane sugar. There are some fruits people don't associate as being fruits, such as nuts (not peanuts, which are legumes) and seeds, which are high in protein but can also be high in fat. Though eating a moderate amount actually cuts cholesterol and might even lead to weight loss, calorie obsessed diets often exclude them. Squash is also a fruit, though we usually think of it as a vegetable, just as tomatoes are a fruit but many people think it's a vegetable. Food, in other words, is way more complex than any diet recognizes but if you want to do low carb eat high protein foods. These would include, again, nuts, seeds, legumes, and animal foods.

Gee, said white flower. Now that's funny. Meant white flour, I'm sure eating white flowers would be fine!
