Checking If Your Ketogenic Diet Is Working

The problem or challenge with most diets is seeing their impact. You can change your lifestyle quite dramatically but have to wait weeks to see any tangible impact or benefits. Switching to a low carb high fat / ketogenic diet is not easy. However, unlike many diets it is relatively simple to check if your body is in ketosis ie. if the ketogenic diet is actually working. Sure, it won’t happen overnight, but you should be able to see results within 7 to 10 days. There has to be an upside to the carb withdrawal after all! In order to get into ketosis and stay there you need to reduce your carb intake quite dramatically. In my case I’m below 40g per day most days, though I’ve heard of some people needing to get below 20g before they get into ketosis. Bear in mind that the average Irish or American person is consuming several hundred grams of carbs per day. It doesn’t take much – bread, pasta, root vegetables and sugar are all source of carbs. The simplest way to check is to test your urine using a ketone urinalysis urine strip. You can easily get them on Amazon or elsewhere.

    I've been doing a bit of reading about this myself. I've read that ketosis kicks in when all your glycogen stores have been used up so it depends on how you were eating before you started. I imagine it wouldn't take more than 4-5 days.
    Some signs are different smelling breath (some say sweet, some say bad), increased energy, different smelling urine/BO, thirst and an odd taste in your mouth. I'm experiencing the taste in the mouth, its been around since this afternoon and didn't go after cleaning my teeth and mouthwash and a mint later on. Feels a bit like i have metal in my mouth or something a bit tart.
    FF :]
