    Oh man this is great info. I went full keto a few years ago, but have long since lost sight of the wagon I fell off of since then. My wife and I are ... considering (dithering/procrastinating/enjoying ice cream) it again now.
    Anyway, I never got past a vague light purple before, and wondered if I was somehow doing it wrong. This is really good info. Thanks!

    I'd say that if you get any change at all in color, you're in ketosis . If it goes very dark, it more then likely speaks to your level of hydration ( Lack thereof ).

    I concur - I have never seen dark purple but I'm drinking 3 to 4 litres a day. It's always a light purple and I'm doing just fine. I use them maybe once every few weeks just to see. I certainly do not use them every day and I got solid advice from the beginning not to as it affects the mental state of weight loss. Stick to your macros and Keto On. The rest will take care of itself.

http://www.gobeyondthebrochure.com/5-... - Though the University of Chicago (called UChicago by its denizens) is losing its reputation as the school Where Fun Comes to Die, it is still the most rewarding to those who work the hardest. These are the five things I wish I had been told before I kicked off my fast paced and zany four years at UChicago. University of Chicagos reputation for academic rigor is not exaggerated. For some students, this means long hours in the library. For others it means showing up to every single class attentive and fully awake. Most students take far too long to realize that the most important part of their UChicago education is not the compulsory stuff like classes or homework.

10 Things I Wish I Had Known Before Starting The Keto Diet

10 Things I Wish I Had Known Before Starting The Keto Diet Thinking of starting on the ketogenic diet? Here are 10 thinks I wish I had known before I started. A few days ago I posted a progress photo of myself on my Instagram. In just 2.5 months on the keto diet, Im feeling so much better and have lost 26lbs. A lot of my PCOS symptoms have disappeared and my hormones are slowly returning to normal levels instead of being out of whack from the PCOS. Its super exciting to be seeing this progress in my own body! In case you missed it, heres that photo! (And sorry about the big watermark, but I dont want to end up on a sketchy ad anywhere.)

No Keto Flu, No Signs Of Ketosis : Keto

This is not the average keto flu/ketosis question. I have been eating under 20 net carbs per day since December 26th. I haven't consumed excessive protein. I've lost exactly 10 pounds as of this morning. Even without testing, I should be fairly confident that I am in ketosis. My first point is that I never experienced any form of a keto flu, even without supplementing electrolytes. I have actually felt consistently better since day one. On one hand, I am eating nutritious foods, so maybe I escaped needing supplements. On the other, I felt SO AWFUL on my previous sugar laden diet with cigarette smoke filled lungs that it seems impossible to have felt WORSE after switching to keto and quitting smoking. Is it possible that the reason I skipped the flu is just an issue of relativity? As far as the signs of ketosis, I have no way to really tell besides blind faith in eating under 20 grams per day. I can't tell by a smell in my urine, because my urine smells like honey smacks cereal when I drink any amount of coffee. I can't tell by my breath, because I have always battled with massive tonsil stones that smell like death. I can't really tell by reduced appetite or cravings, because I ha Continue reading >>

    Your first, best, and cheapest option is not to use them.
    Ketostix do not measure what many people expect that they do.
    Ketostix only measure excess levels of acetoacetate, which is not the type of ketones that correlate with nutritional ketosis.
    Ketostix may show negative ketones when your blood ketones are high and then may show positive ketones when your blood ketones are low.
    Misinterpretation of what they show is one of the most common unnecessary causes of keto anxiety and wasted time. You can be perfectly successful on a ketogenic or low-carb diet without ever measuring ketones.
    Many people are already overwhelmed with learning about keto diets. Adding another layer of unnecessary complexity doesn't help the matter. Often, people are most successful on keto when they treat it as a lifestyle and not a diet. Obsessively measuring ketones can be at odds with attempting to live a keto lifestyle.
    If you decide to use Ketostix anyway, please be kind to those who answer questions here by not submitting a question that begins with I know that Ketostix are unreliable, but ...
    If you consume few enough carbohydrates and avoid excessive intake of protein, you can trust that your liver will be producing ketones within a single day. That is how human metabolism works.
    If you consume too many carbs, you will be kicked out of ketosis temporarily. However, if you once again restrict carbs, you will go right back into ketosis within 24 hours. This is because the liver can store only 100 grams of glycogen. If you restrict carbs, the liver will run out of glycogen within a day and begin burning fat instead. The liver produces ketones as a side effect of burning fat.
    As an example of how Ketostix can be misleading, it is possible to eat a high-carbohydrate meal followed by a positive Ketostix result. You may think that you cheated the system, but you didn't. It takes time for excess ketones to appear in urine. Ketostix are showing you what happened in the past before you cheated.
    If you have the time and really want to know why Ketostix will not tell you much, read pages 164 and 165 of The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living by Volek and Phinney. This is the section headed by Ketones: To Measure or Not.
    If you do not have this book, read this summary:
    http://ketopia.com/why-you-need-to-stop-worrying-about-the-color-of-your-ketostix/
    Ketostix were designed to help diabetics avoid ketoacidosis which is a dangerous condition involving very high blood sugar and very high serum ketones. If you have near normal blood sugar and serum ketone levels consistent with nutritional ketosis, you don't need to worry about this.
    Ketostix only measure excess levels of acetoacetate, which is not the type of ketones that correlate with nutritional ketosis.
    The ketones that correlate with nutritional ketosis are known as beta-hydroxybutyrate. This type can be measured only with a blood ketone meter.
    There is a built-in time lag. Ketostix are measuring what has happened in the past since it takes a while for the kidneys to produce urine.
    Exercise can influence how many excess ketones are excreted.
    You can be in nutritional ketosis even when Ketostix show no excess acetoacetate. In the keto-adapted state, very little acetoacetate ketones will be excreted in urine even though blood ketones may be high.
    Note that it takes a period of four to six weeks of being in ketosis every day in order to become keto-adapted. Someone who is keto-adapted has adapted to using fat as the primary fuel for muscles and various organs. The keto-adapted brain uses ketones in place of glucose for most of its energy needs. When keto-adapted, most acetoacetate is not excreted. Instead, muscles convert it to beta-hydroxybutyrate and return it to the blood for use by the brain.
    If after all of this, you still want to use Ketostix because you bought them and cannot bring yourself to throw them away or because they are comforting in some way, here is how they may be useful.
    When you are first starting a low-carb or keto diet and transitioning into ketosis from a moderate to high-carb diet, Ketostix will confirm that your body has in fact done what biology says that it must do. It will show that your liver has begun producing ketones.
    Once you are a few days into the diet, you can give them away to a keto newbie or toss them. Note that Ketostix will eventually expire, especially if you keep them in a moist environment like a bathroom.
    If you have a medical condition that makes monitoring blood ketone levels necessary or if you are a numbers geek with spending money, you may be interested in purchasing a ketone blood meter and test strips for measuring beta hydroxybutyrate in your blood. The test strips cost somewhere between $2 and $5 per strip.
    There are a few meters to choose from.
    Precision Xtra - https://www.abbottdiabetescare.com/products/patient/pxtra-overview.html
    Nova Max Plus - http://www.novacares.com/nova-max-plus/
    CardioChek Home - http://www.healthchecksystems.com/CardioChek.cfm#home
    Most use one of the first two listed (Precision Xtra or Nova Max Plus). Some say that the Precision Xtra is the more accurate of the two. I've found that readings from these two track fairly closely with each other. The Nova Max Plus has cheaper test strips.
    To detect nutritional ketosis, look for a reading between 0.5 and 5.0 mmol / liter. Some experts recommend aiming for a level of 1.0 to 5.0 mmol / liter.
    Another option is the Ketonix Sport breath meter. This meter measures acetate in the breath. It does not require test strips.
    Acetate forms when acetoacetate spontaneously breaks down to acetate. According to Volek and Phinney (page 165 of The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living), it should be linearly correlated with blood ketones. In practice, it is not as accurate as the blood meters in part because it is difficult to breathe in the same way every time you test.
    Ketonix Sport (order direct from Sweden) - https://www.ketonix.com/index.php/product/sport
    Again, remember that you can be perfectly successful on a ketogenic or low-carb diet without ever measuring ketones whether in urine, blood, or breath.
    In the final analysis, ketone concentrations are what they are. Chasing ketone concentrations often becomes as unnecessary and distracting as Ketostix. Unless you are treating epilepsy, cancer, or other medical condition, the concentration of ketones do not matter too much. You can achieve weight loss and a sense of well-being even with lower levels of ketones.
    Focus on how you feel, not on the number. Use ketone meters for interest and experimentation, but don't let the results stress you out.
    tl;dr never, unless you have read and understood this post, yet still want to use them anyway
    [If anyone has any suggestions for improving this post or correcting misinformation, let me know. I'll correct this and re-post it once in a while]

  2. anbeav

    Hallelujah!!
    tl;dr never
    If you want to do it for experimentation, go for it but please spare the rest of us the unnecessary ketosis anxiety
    edits: In addition to false negatives, ketostix commonly show false positives as in when people eat a high carb meal and think they cheated biology. Also I might remove the bit about using ketostix to monitor keto-adaptation, just asking for more posts about the issue. Also I might emphasize that people seem to already be overwhelmed with keto when starting and adding another layer of unnecessary complexity doesn't help the matter. People always talk about lifestyle, live a lifestyle and IMO living a lifestyle certainly shouldn't have to include measuring. Lastly, ketone concentrations are what they are. If you want to measure with a blood or breath meter, they are what they are and chasing ketone concentrations often becomes as unnecessary as ketostix. Unless someone has a medical condition for which a particular concentration is required for management, focus on how you feel not the number. Use the meter for interest and experimentation, but don't let it stress you out.
