Hey,

I was just wondering how many carbs a day I should stay under in order to force my body in to a state of ketosis?

On average about 20g should be fine. Some people can have a higher intake while others require a lower intake. You can purchase ketostix to help you gauge whether you are in ketosis or not.

Should be able to find them at your local pharmacy.

its cheaper to order them online

the ones they sell at the local pharmacy USED to be used for diabetics for monitoring blood sugar but now since they are used for "fad diets", they are quite expensive.

i found a site a while back that sold 100 sticks for $10 (i think that was with shipping)
