Urine and blood tests can confirm ketosis, but certain signs can also reveal the body's switch from glucose use to ketones for fuel, including the presence of acetone breath, a decrease in appetite and constipation. While low-carb diets help you lose weight, not much is known about the long-term effects of ketosis, so you should consult with your doctor before starting a low-carb diet.

    yep. especially if this is your first time. you will feel tired and sluggish. irritable, weak, and moody. you'll get headaches, cramps, and experience "brain fog". your breath and urine will smell like fruit. most people say they get a metallic taste in their mouth (i never experienced this as i have never eaten metal before so i don't know what it tastes like).
    after about 2-3 weeks you will suddenly feel awesome and you will have more energy than you've probably ever experienced in your life.
