Will Lemon juice take you out of Ketosis?

I drink half my body weight in water every day. I like to add 3/4 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice per 32oz bottle - I am about to start the bulletproof diet with 18-hour intermittent fasting----will the lemon-water juice take me out of ketosis?


The first thing I drink when I wake up in the morning is a cup of lemon juice 1/4 oz. a teaspoon of Himalayan salt with 12oz hot water so it would be greatly beneficial to know if it will evict me from Ketosis.

  • Lemon has Prevented ketosis in past. However, I did not use the BP oil at that time. This diet (on day 5) I have not gone out of ketosis while using lemon in my water since I've been using oil.

    1 lemon has 8 grams of carb. If you go over 30g during the day total then you are likely not in nutritional ketosis anymore. If you are doing the MCT oil kinda ketosis, then probably doesn't matter.
