This video outlines a step by step procedure for replacement of the timing belt, water pump, idler and tensioner pulleys and tensioner assembly on a Toyota Sienna Van with the 3.3L 3MZFE engine. This procedure is similar to a Toyota Highlander as well. Thank you for tuning in to The Car Doctor Channel!

Timing Of Ketosis Checks

Diabetes Forum The Global Diabetes Community Find support, ask questions and share your experiences. Join the community Ive just received the (free) Caresens Dual meter, which I ordered specifically to test whether I am in ketosis. I understand from Diet Doctor that optimum ketosis is between 1.5 - 3 mmols, but have question as to whether there is a particular time of day (in relation to meals or otherwise) that is best to test. The strips are expensive, so I dont want to do it several times a day if I can avoid it. I tested before dinner tonight (I am eating one meal a day at the moment so had not consumed anything other than double cream in a couple of cups of tea since dinner last night) and got a reading of 4.7, so Im definitely very much in ketosis.

    don't use them. They tend to test dehydration mainly. If you are eating at the correct level, you will be in Ketosis.
    Ditto to Mrs REJ's recommendation on the Atkins site. I love it.

    I use the ketosis strips on and off when I need a little boost of reasurance. I think the best time to test is in the morn. when you first wake up I noticed if I tested everday the results would vary. So maybe you should try testing once a week. They strips are kinda pricey but they last awhile. Hope this helps!

The Ultimate Guide To Ketone Testing

Ketone as a word has its root from an old German word, aketon, which means Acetone. Ketone is what your liver produces during the breakdown of fatty acids when your body is low on glucose. In simple words, when our body doesnt have enough glucose, the liver breaks down fatty acid to produce ketones. There are ways of measuring and determining what level ketones are in our body and one of this is the ketone test strip. Mistakes are often made between checking for ketones if you have diabetes and wanting to be on ketosis. Before anything else, it is important to know that they are completely different. When the cells in your body dont have enough carbohydrates from food to burn energy, it burns fat instead; in the process of burning fat, it produces ketones. A diabetic patient checks for ketones to know how much ketones he/she has in his/her urine or blood. Unlike checking for ketones, being in ketosis is a metabolic state whereby the body produces ketones, some organs make use of these ketones as fuel so that glycogen is only used by organs that depend on it. For people with diabetes, having high levels of ketones is considered to be dangerous, therefore, which is why it is importa Continue reading >>

How To Test Your Urine For Ketones

Are you on a diet where part of the goal is to be "in ketosis"? Some diets, such as the Atkins Diet, recommend testing to find out whether your body is generating ketones. The easiest and least expensive way to do this is to test your urine using Ketostix or a similar testing strip. Although it is not the most accurate method, it can be helpful for home testing, especially when you're new to a ketogenic diet. Testing can be a useful way to tell if you are eating something that is higher in carbohydrate than you realized. Since different people will be in nutritional ketosis with different amounts of carbohydrate (and sometimes protein), it can provide information to help you individualize your diet. It also provides motivation to stay in ketosis. Two Notes About Testing for Ketones Diabetics testing ketone levels to check for ketoacidosis will interpret the reading much differently than someone on a ketogenic diet who desires higher levels of ketones. A reduced-carb diet does not have to be ketogenic to be helpful. Many studies of non-ketogenic low-carb diets have been found to have many benefits. How to Use Ketone Testing Strips In order to test your urine, you will need ketone ur Continue reading >>

    I have been puzzling over this for some time.
    I read or understood after reading, that it is better to test at night (diabetics are a different case as they need to check for medical reasons but may be interested.)
    Most people seem to test in the morning and also people have suggested cutting the sticks in half as they are a little pricy! This being the case then when to use them is important.
    To me testing in the morning after no food overnight seems strange as the ketosis reading will be different to that at the end of the day-when food has been eaten!
    The evening reading will be a warning that you've over done it or "joy of joys" you are on plan!
    THE DAWN INSULIN SURGE is something every has as it the bodies way of preparing us for waking and rising.
    Insulin makes the cells use energy but what we want is to have the body use an alternative-our body fat and not our muscle mass!
    This MUST have an effect on Ketosis and for those only just in Ketosis the reading could be disappointing because the insulin has caused a shift in the readings.
    This is a second reason why evening is perhaps the answer.
    I don't know if this is correct but perhaps someone with an understanding of chemistry could tell me if my reasoning is correct or if not, then why not!
    I have too much time on my hands and I want the correct answer!

    Are you talking about the pricey strips that use blood to test for nutritional ketosis, rather than the urine ketostix? The Phinney and Volek book says that readings for ketosis level are lowest in the morning, so if you were "in ketosis" (reading 0.5 or higher) then, you would presumably be so throughout the day, unless you ate enough carbs to throw you out of ketosis. (Presumably your early morning ketosis reading is reflecting more or less how your body processed what you ate the preceding day). But I think you could pick any time that was convenient for you, so long as you always tested at that time of day. Hope this helps.
