I do love me some Swedish Fish, and fakin' it with a pack of Sweet Fish Gummies will cost me just 3 grams of sugar and 80 calories. However, there is a downside. Some associated costs, if you will.

First, I'm pretty sure the point of keto, paleo, and low-carb diets is to eliminate cravings for sugar, and wean your body off both the real white stuff, and all of its impersonators. In Sweet Fish Gummies' case, the sugar impersonator is Stevia leaf extract, the "all natural fake sugar," that may or may not be better for you than artificial sweeteners (and cane sugar itself for that matter) and definitely isn't going to help sour your sweet tooth.

Second, and more importantly, for the keto-friendly 80 calories and 3 grams of sugar each 1.8-ounce bag of Sweet Fish Gummies contains, you're also going to get poop-chute-unfriendly 28 grams of dietary fiber. No, make that poop-chute-disasterous.Twenty-eight grams of fiber in a single serving?! That is 100% of your DRA in a handful of candy!

I guess Sweet Fish Gummies maker, Smart Sweets (<--name very debatable), figures when you're on a high fat keto diet your fiber options are sparse, so may as well pack all those grams in with your afternoon snack or as an after dinner treat so you won't have worry about it while you finish up work / get some shut-eye. Just make sure you're actually following the keto diet if you try the fish, or what you will have to worry about is the inverse geyser of diarrhea that's going to prevent you from doing both.
