    I have a lame question.
    If you eat something that knocks you out of ketosis, how long between eating it and seeing the results on a ketostix?
    I'm not cheating, I'm just really curious.

    My understanding is that on this program, the state of ketosis we are in is so light that it doesn't even show on a stick. I say if you are following the program, and you are losing weight and feel good, you are in... if you aren't following it, and start to feel lousy, you may be out.
    This is by no means a scientific approach, but, I'll say it anyway.

    Hey, Alex!
    The topic of ketosis has been brought up a lot on this forum. For more of what has been said in the past, try doing a search on the topic. Good stuff, Maynard!
    For me, I know when I'm back in ketosis when my energy goes back up, I stop fixating on anything NOT on the protocol, and I no longer feel like harming my husband for no apparent reason. Depending on what knocked me out, it could be 1 day, it could be 4 (and then I keep track so it doesn't happen again).
