Ya fruit is really high in carbs... I wish I had the link to the info about how eating something doesn't mean your body will burn it off or use those calories and carbs. The idea is to get your body into the mechanism of ketosis which causes your body to burn fat instead of carbs for energy. In order to do this the daily amount of carbs have to be restricted.
