I Want To Try Keto But I Don't Know Where To Start?!

After almost a year and a half of doing keto, I STILL don't feel qualified to really answer this question. I am constantly learning new things every day. So I've crowd-sourced this post. Thank you to everyone who helped me! Firstly, the best place I can recommend is Reddit. If you have never used Reddit before, it's an online forum dedicated to thousands of different subjects. The keto subreddit is a great source of information for people starting out. Go read the FAQ and if you have any questions you can search the sub, because chances are, your question has been asked before. Ketoscience is a great place to go if you want to get to the scientific stuff regarding low carb and ketosis. I posted about starting my personal keto journey here and here. Go give it a read. I talk about some of the things that helped me when I started as well as how keto has improved my health. 1. Everything you know about food/nutrition is [probably] wrong. Educate yourself. This is a big one. So many people put their health in the hands of others. This is so obviously not working. We need to start taking responsibility for what we do to our bodies.

    I've been doing the keto diet for about 2 weeks already, I've lost 9 pounds already following the diet, I've also done a lot of exercise and counting my calories with MFP.
    The thing is that I don't know if I'm loosing weight just because I'm eating less calories and doing exercise or because i'm also in Ketosis...
    I don't really know if my pee smells worse, neither I feel a metallic breath (just whenever my mouth is dry is the time that I feel that my breath stinks, but don't know if this means something), and I've looked everywhere in my city for those ketostix but I guess they are not common here in Colombia...
    So my question really is, if there's another way to know if i'm in ketosis...

    Eating less than 25g carbs a day [√]
    Not eating 300g+ protein a day [√]
    If you have fulfilled those requirements for at least 2-3 days, you'll be in ketosis.
    Don't even bother with the ketostix, they're inaccurate. You'll be in ketosis as long as you don't eat too many carbs or eat a ridiculous amount of protein.
    Losing weight is just eating less calories, keto just helps you fill satisfied while doing so which in return makes a higher deficit easier for some. You don't instantly start dropping pounds by eating keto friendly foods, it's entirely possible to gain weight while in ketosis. It all comes down to calories.

    Are ketostix really inaccurate? I've never heard that before.
