    I have no idea whether or not I'm in ketosis. I eat absolutely NO fruit other than 1-2 squares of 85% dark chocolate per day. 2 squares totals 5 carbs. I eat no potatoes, grains, or starchy veggies. I actually eat meat, fish, eggs, fats (coconut oil, olive oil, butter, and cream), green veggies (ie, kale), and nuts (infrequently...almonds, pistachios, macadamias, or cashews only). I don't trust ketostix, so I'm wondering if I'm in ketosis?? I aim for 20 net carbs per day. I figure I'm plus/minus 5 on that. Thoughts? What does ketosis feel like for you?
    Oh and P.S. I usually eat a one minute muffin everyday with butter on top.
