We use the Ketone Breath Test from House of Keto because we have found it to be the most accurate and inexpensive method! Get yours here: http://www.houseofketo.com?aff=55 If you look at the cost of blood ketone tests (the other accurate method) you'll find the cost of the unit is just a small part of the overall cost. You also have to purchase replacement strips which can cost over $30/month depending on how often you test. We love the breath test because it requires no strips and multiple people can use it. It's also fast and easy :-) Want more? Head on over to my blog ht

How Do You Know If You Are In Ketosis?

There are 3 ways to directly measure ketosis: Urine test strips, like Ketostix - these stop working for most people after a couple of weeks because they only catch very high numbers, which are more important for a Type 1 Diabetic in danger of ketoacidosis. It’s also prone to error - dehydration will cause a false positive. In the first couple weeks on a ketogenic diet, your body is spilling out alot of extra ketones, but once your body is burning them efficiently, they don’t spill out anymore. They’re inexpensive, and can be ok to get you started, but I found them to be more discouraging in the long run. Blood test strips - this is accurate, but very expensive at the moment. The cheapest I’ve heard of is still over $1 per strip. Breath ketones - the only one I know of available for sale is the Ketonix Reusable Breath Ketone Analyzer in the US, or Home in the rest of the world. I have this one and like it alot. It cost about $200, but I’ve been able to adjust my diet and correlate how clear headed I feel to the number on the meter. Once you’ve measured a while, you generally can tell when you’re in because you’re thinking more clearly, and often have more energy over Continue reading >>

    Help! I'm frustrated, I'm into my 2nd week on Induction & I'm still not into Ketosis. I've been keeping my carbs below 20 carbs a day.
    If fact I've been averaging 18. Testing my Urine every 2sd day for the recommended 15 seconds. Anybody got any ideas?

    Have been reading some old posts (2011) about bringing on Ketosis by upping your fat intake using Coconut Oil. Has anyone got any info on this. What does Atkins think about this?

  3. Helen

    The ketostix are not always accurate. You may be in ketosis when they say you aren't.
    Are you thirsty all the time? Has your hunger gone away? Those are generally the best two ways to recognise that you are in ketosis.
    Saying that, while most people can achieve ketosis in 3-6 days, for some it can take a few weeks, especially if they are insulin resistant.
    Not sure about the Coconut oil (although it is good for you). I have read that it can help in ketogenic diets, but not sure if it will help in the case of Atkins.

What Is The Fastest Way To Get Into Ketosis, And If Once There How Will I Know Without Testing?

I am going to have to disagree with some of the other people who answered this question. The fastest and best way to get into ketosis is to dramatically decrease your carbohydrate consumption to 20 net grams (total carbs minus carbs from fiber) or fewer per day. At the same time, keep your protein moderate (50–75 g if you’re female, and 100–125 if you’re a guy), and fat at a 1:2 or even higher ratio to protein. Doing this alone will usually put your body into a state of ketosis in just a few days. You DO NOT need to buy any products, especially exogenous ketones. You want your body to make its own ketones, and buying them will only keep you from experiencing the benefits of ketosis that your body will naturally reach on its own. MCT oil is fine; I use it myself in my morning coffee for the energy benefits, but it’s not totally necessary. Also, you should not try to fast until you are fully fat adapted, which is different than being in ketosis, and can take weeks. Fasting should come naturally. Once you are fat adapted, you will find that you can go longer between meals because you just aren’t hungry. But even fasting is not absolutely necessary on the ketogenic diet.

    ketones and protein in urine?

    I had my annual exam at my ob/gyn. This afternoon, the nurse called me and said I had ketones and protein in my urine. She said my gyn dr thinks that it may be related to having a lapband. I have done some research online and I dont really like what I am seeing. My lapband dr's office was already closed too. Now I feel extremely stressed! Has anyone experienced this? I would love to hear you input if you know anything about this... thanks!

    I could be completely wrong but I thought ketones in the urine was just an indication of fat being burned through "ketosis" (when you're not eating any or enough carbs and your body breaks down fat for energy.) It's different than "ketoacidosis" which is the dangerous state that people confuse with ketosis. Ketogenic diets like Atkins work based on ketones being in the urine.

  3. donnamy3sons

    ketones is from being dehydrated or not eating enough food, the protien could also be from being dehydrated. try not to worry too much, just really increase your fluid intake and make sure you are eating enough....good luck!

FREE 6 Week Challenge: https://gravitychallenges.com/home65d... Fat Loss Calculator: http://bit.ly/2O6rsdo The carb cycling diet is one of my favorite diets because it is one of the fastest way to burn fat while retaining as much muscle as possible. Most people don't know that carb cycling is actually a form of ketogenic dieting. The ketogenic diet is a diet that is lower in carbohydrates, which makes our body convert more dietary fat and body fat in to keytones in the liver. Which it then goes on to use for energy. Like I've said in many of my videos the human body prefers to use carbs as its primary source of energy. You're body won't produce too many keytones on a high carbohydrate diet, because your body won't need extra energy from fat due to the fact that its getting its energy from the more preferred carbohydrates. The only way for our body to use more fat for energy is by not having its preferred source there all the time. Eliminating carbs completely, however can have many drawbacks on our health and well being. Protein, carbs, and fats are all important and necessary for our body. So in comes the cyclical ketogenic diet aka carb cycling and also known originally as the a

How Does The Ketogenic Diet Work?

The Keto diet is not really a diet, but rather a lifestyle change. A Ketogenic diet is best described as a low carb, moderate protein, and high fat diet. This combination changes the way energy is used in the body. Fat is converted in the liver into fatty acids and ketone bodies. Another effect of the diet is that it lowers glucose levels and improves insulin resistance. An elevated level of ketone bodies in the blood, a state known as ketosis, leads to a reduction in the occurrence of epileptic seizures. Ketogenic Diet Macros Typically, the ketogenic diet consists of only 30-50 grams of carbohydrates a day. High in fat Moderate Protein The beginning of a ketogenic diet can be challenging for some who are not used to eating a very low carbohydrate diet. You’ll probably experience a lack of energy and brain fog as your body is in the beginning stages of making a metabolic shift. This shift is simply your body beginning to use fat for fuel rather than glucose. Your brain and body actually prefers to run on keytones rather than glucose for energy. The goal here is to use the fat on your body as fuel rather than glucose (from sugar or carbs) to burn fat and for overall daily energy r Continue reading >>
