Cooling Watermelon Lemonade

In the summer heat, what could be cooler than an icy, fruity, but sugar-free, low-carb lemonade.  In the hot weather, it is especially important to pay attention to fluid intake, but avoid sugary soft drinks. If you are bored of mineral water and lemonade, improve it with a little fruit.  It quenches thirst perfectly, is healthy, is quick to prepare and almost soaks itself. I especially recommend this wonderful nectar for garden parties. Everyone will love it! 

Could watermelon be eaten in the Keto diet?

Now, perhaps, this question arises in many people.
A keto diet is when you lower your carbohydrate intake so your body goes into ketosis. Ketosis is when your body burns fat, not carbs. Even your own fat, than weight loss happens. If you eat too many carbs to your diet you can kick yourself out of ketosis.  Now, perhaps, the question arises in many people: 

In the case of a keto diet, the goal is to try not to go over 25 to 50 grams of carbs per day. So, the question still remains, how many grams of carbohydrates are in watermelon? 

Above 20 grams of carbohydrates can raise your insulin level and stop your production of ketones.

100 g of delicious watermelon contains 7.2 grams of carbohydrates (6.2 grams of sugar, and 0.4 grams of fiber). Don’t forget, The fiber content of foods should always be subtracted from the total amount of carbohydrates. So, 300 grams of watermelon contains about (7.2 g-0.4 g) x3 = 20.4 g of carbs. This is the amount of watermelon, what you can eat while your body is still in keto. This amount of watermelon is about 2 cups.
