Id have to say it would knock you out. a good guide is the induction phase on www.atkinsdiet.com
they have lists of foods that you can eat as much as you want and stay in ketosis.
hope it helps
BUMP for more info

I would say you should only count active carbs. Subtract the grams of fiber from the total amount of carbs.
ex: 1 medium head of iceberg lettuce has 11 grams of carbs and 7.5 grams of fiber. Therefore, 11 - 7.5 = 3.5 grams of active carbs

Get yourself some keto test strips and check to make sure you are in ketosis occasionally. If you aren't you will need to cut back on all the carbs, it's easier to monitor yourself that way.

Fibre has zero calories - it's indigestible. This isn't to say vegetable are 100% fibre though, as Outshined shows.
