How Do You Know When You're In Ketosis On Medifast? I'll Tell You

I often have people email me wanting to know how they can tell if they've reached ketosis or not. Because one of the goals of medifast is to consume a low enough amount of carbs and calories and a high enough amount of protein to get your body burning fat rather than carbs. Most people want to get to this state as soon as possible because this is when you begin to see the results. So how can you tell if you've reached these levels? Well, you can look at your physical symptoms, you can test yourself, or you can do both. I will discuss this more in the following article. The Physical Symptoms You Might See With Ketosis Once You've Been On Medifast Longer Than 3 - 4 Days: First of all, if you follow along pretty well and you're careful with your lean and green meals, you should be able to get into ketosis within the first week.

    I started keto on Saturday (4 days ago), I have no idea if I've reached ketosis yet but so far I'm enjoying the diet change and whole range of 'forbidden foods' that I've been able to rediscover.
    I had a few symptoms of what I'm assuming was dehydration on Sunday night (lightheaded-ness and heart palpitations, which scared the shit out of me) so have upped my water intake and sodium to huge heights.
    So now those symptoms have gone, along with the dark yellow typical dehydration pee.
    BUT my pee is now occasionally coming out this insane neon yellow colour. It's nothing I've ever seen before. It literally looks like it could glow in the dark, it's that bright. I know my body (and pee) and I'm 99% sure this isn't dehydration.
    What on earth could it be and should I be worried?

    Do you take a multivitamin? If so, it's from excess B vitamins.

    Yes, it didn't even occur to me that there'd be enough Vitamin B in there but I'd say that's most like the explanation! Thanks!
