View Full Version : Entering Ketosis?
03-04-2002, 07:17 AM
I am trying the keto diet this week and am wondering how I will know if I have entered ketosis?
Any signs I should be looking for? I hear people mentioning some sort of sticks to measure, but I have no idea what those are.

Go to any CVS/pharmacy and ask for ketostix (that's the brand name)
Other than that, its kinda hard to tell.. took me 2 full days, your breath/urine STINK, and you gt past the carb cravings (i.e., you can eat a whole pot roast and still crave bread or other starches)

Basically if you keep carbs below 30g and eat the 30:70 ratio of protein to fat....you'll be in within a couple days without fail.
